Sunni Ulemas Hail Afzal Hanging
The apex body of Sunni Muslims, All India Ulema and Mashaikh Board (AIUMB), today welcomed the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and called upon the community people to differentiate between the progressive and peace loving Indians and hate mongers.

In a Mahapanchayat held with an aim to sensitise the community against the threat of extremists' ideology, the leaders also expressed that protest of film 'Vishwaroopam'was senseless.

"The law has taken its own course in case of Afzal Guru. A terrorist is a terrorist. They see no difference among people when they carry out their inhuman acts and they should not be linked to a religion or community," Maulana Ashraf Ali Kichochawi, general secretary and founder of the board said.

In the event, attended by thousands of muslims from Rajasthan and neighbouring states, he said, there was a need for Muslims to differentiate between peace loving people and extremists.

Kichochawi lashed out at Wahabi/Deobandi school of Islam.

"They are opposed to the very idea of our democratic principles: secularism, freedom of speech and expression, liberty etc. The Wahabism's unwarranted stand and issuing of Fatwas on non-issues is making mockery of us," he said.

He also added that protest on actor Kamal Hassan's recently released movie 'Vishwaroopam' was a futile act by Wahabis groups to draw attention of public at large.

These jokers what are they trying prove.

Denouncing extremism. Unlike the Bajrangi thugs who molested the women and beat up the men at Jantar Mantar.

Just wondering if it was absolutely necessary to parrot the 'official' version.

Hanging Afzal Guru is a good decision: Ajmer Dargah head

The religious head of Ajmer Dargah has welcomed the hanging of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, terming it as a "very good decision".

"This is a very good decision but should have been taken earlier. It was necessary to send a message across the world that India is tough against terrorism," Zainul Abedin Ali Khan, Diwan of Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti's shrine, said.

The government should take such bold and legal steps well in time to give a message that the country has zero tolerance for terrorism, he said.

Khan also demanded from the Pakistan government to release Sarabjit Singh, an Indian national who is languishing in a jail in that country for several years. - PTI.
