Jamiat statement on BJP’s action over remarks on the prophet (PBUH)
New Delhi: June 5
Maulana Hakeemuddin Qasmi, General Secretary of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, has termed the disciplinary action of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) against Nupur Sharma and others for insulting remarks against the Prophet (PBUH) as necessary and timely action for maintaining law and order in the country.
There is no bigger communalism and no greater offence than this, so we hope that law enforcement agencies will take legal action against them without delay and will indeed punish them, as well as take action against all such individuals who are constantly insulting the Prophet.
The Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (JUH) had recently passed a resolution in its national governing body meeting in this regard calling for the immediate passing of a law to protect the sanctity and dignity of all religious personalities. Maulana Mahmood Asad Madani, the president of the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind also filed a petition in the Supreme Court to dictate the governments implement the guidelines issued by the apex court.
