JAMMU: “If killing innocent people is jihad, better change Molvis of Masjids & teachers in Madrasas. We need introspection, real Islam is not been taught rightly in Masjids and Madrasas,” this was stated by BJP’s Youth Morcha leader, Aijaz Hussain while reacting on twin militant attacks in South Kashmir on the occasion of Shab-e-Qadr.
Pertinently, two policemen were killed in said twin attacks besides injuries to 11 cops.
Talking to a news portal indiatoday[dot]in, , he was concerned about the situation in the region. He said, “We should introspect whether real Islam is being propagated or not.”
The twin attacks coincided with the Shab-e-Qadr event when special night-long prayers are held in the month of Ramzan.
Aijaz claimed that the maulvies (clerics) are responsible for the widespread militancy in Kashmir. “These maulvies are responsible for 99 per cent of the terrorism in Kashmir. They have misguided the youth of Kashmir,” he said.
Giving the instance of one case in which a woman and her paramour, a cleric, were arrested for murdering her husband in Srinagar, Aijaz asked if clerics are involved in such shameful incidents then who will lead the prayers?
Aijaz said, “Policemen in Kashmir are earning to feed their families and militants are killing them. Tell me, is killing people for earning a livelihood jihad”?
Pertinently, while reacting to the above-said attacks, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that “militants will only have themselves to blame if security forces hit them harder than before after the Centre’s peace initiative ends.” (KNB)
