Pakistan's Jamiat-ul-Islami chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman's mysterious visit to India is said to be to ensure that nobody in Deoband deviates from the policy of opposing Mr Narendra Modi, the Chief Minister of Gujarat
Muslims in the Arab world have had enough of their dictators. One hopes that l'affaire Vastanvi would lead to Indian Muslims in general and Deoband students in particular to start articulating a similar demand
The mullahs and their followers have a nasty penchant for concocting bizarre conspiracy theories at the drop of a skull-cap but Vastanvi's naïve and untenable claims about Muslims in Gujarat stoked the agitation that now threatens to displace him
The new Deoband chief faces continued opposition, with the self-styled 'Shahi' Imam stepping in with a bizarre claim that ' Vastanvi was nudged by the Congress to issue his alleged pro-Modi statements'
