Waseem Rizvi’s agenda aimed at getting close to power corridors: MMU


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) has strongly condemned the mischievous and malicious agenda of former Chairman of Central Shia Waqf Board in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, Waseem Rizvi.

Waseem Rizvi has filed a petition in the Supreme Court of India against some verses of the holy Quran.

The MMU comprises Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid, Dar-ul-Uloom Raheemiya, Muslim Personal Law Board, Jamiat Ahle Hadeeth, Jama’at-e-Islami, Anjuman Sharie Shian, Karwaan-e-Islami, Ittihaad-ul-Muslimeen, Anjuman Himayat-ul-Islam, Jamiat Hamdania, Anjuman Ulema-e-Ahnaaf, Dar-ul-Uloom Qasmia, Dar-ul-Uloom Bilaliya, Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam, Anjuman Mazhar-ul-Haq, Jamiat-ul-Aima Wal Ulema, Anjuman Aima Wa Mashaa’ikh Kashmir, Dar-ul-Uloom Naqshbandiya, Dar-ul-Uloom Rasheediya, Ahl-e-Bayt Foundation, Madrasa Kanz-ul-Uloom, Perwaan-e-Wilayat, Auqaf Islamia Khurram Sarhama, Anjuman Tanzeem-ul-Makaatib, Muhammadi Trust and many social and educational institutions.

According to a statement, the MMU said that the move is deliberate aimed at provoking Muslims and feeding into the agenda of Islamophobes hostile to Islam and full of hatred.

“The holy Quran is the final word revealed by Allah Almighty and every single word has and will remain unchanged till the Day of Judgment.

The holy scriptures revealed by Allah including the Quran are sacred and it is beyond the power of any human being or agency to change a single word or to make any change(s) to it,” it said.

“By such mischief, people like Rizvi seek publicity, and score brownie points to get close to the power corridors, “the statement said, adding, “Quran does not preach violence or hatred against anyone. It is the fountainhead that promotes humanity, love, unity and harmony.”

The MMU appealed to people not to resort to violence over the obnoxiousness of Rizvi which he and his masters would be anticipating to further their agenda instead pledge to follow the teachings of the holy Qur’an in letter and spirit.

It is to be mentioned that Waseem Rizvi is the producer of the Bollywood film Ram Ki Janmabhoomi. He is a supporter of Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party as per Wikipedia.

Waseem Rizvi also supported Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh when it proposed the construction of a grand statue of Ramchandra, a major deity in Hinduism, in Ayodhya.

He also contradicted the consensus opinion of the Indian Muslims over the issues of Babri Masjid, Triple Talaq and religious education in madrassahs.

Meanwhile, in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, political parties and politicians have condemned the Uttar Pradesh Shia Waqf Board former Chairman Waseem Rizvi for filing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Indian Supreme Court, demanding deleting of certain Quranic verses.

The National Conference (NC) President, Farooq Abdullah in a statement issued in Srinagar condemned Rizvi’s action and termed it abominable.

“The petition should not be entertained. On the contrary strict action should be taken against him for hurting the sentiments of Muslims living across the world.

I urge the judiciary to take suo moto cognizance of the nefarious designs of the petitioner under the relevant provisions of law for deliberately and maliciously hurting the sentiments of Muslims,” he said.

The NC General Secretary, Ali Muhammad Sagar, Additional General Secretary Mustufa Kamal, Provincial President, Kashmir, Nasir Aslam Wani, Members of Parliament Muhammad Akbar Lone and Hasnain Masoodi, senior leaders Abdul Rahim Rather, Mian Altaf Ahmad, Muhammad Shafi (Uri), Shariefuddin Shariq, Aga Ruhullah, Aga Mehmood, Political Advisor to Vice President Tanvir Sadiq, spokesman Imran Nabi Dar and Youth National Conference leader, Salman Saghar also condemned Rizvi’s abominable act and impressed upon the government to take him to task.

Apni Party, President Altaf Bukhari denounced Rizvi’s move and demanded stern action against him under the law. He said that persons like Rizvi should be dealt with sternly under the law.

The Peoples Democratic Front (PDF) Chairman, Hakeem Yaseen also condemned Rizvi for his blasphemous act and demanded severe punishment to him.

Shia leader and former minister Aga Ruhullah called Rizvi a servant of the Sangh Parivar.

“Waseem (not) Rizvi has brazenly let his belief known and his belief is absolutely not that of a Muslim.

He is a known servant of Sangh and I suggest he should be left alone,” he tweeted.

Awami National Conference (ANC) Provincial President, Rahi Riya demanded immediate arrest of Rizvi for hurting the religious sentiments of the Muslims and lashed out at Rizvi for his blasphemous move.—KMS
