Lucknow: Majlis Ulama-e-Hind expressed its disapproval over the arrival of controversial Muslim preacher Imam Tawhidi in India. It wrote a letter to Home Minister Rajnath Singh to express its disapproval on his visit. The organisation also slammed Zee TV network for inviting such an irresponsible person.
After a unanimous decision taken by all Ulamas, the Majlis Ulama-e-Hind strongly opposed Tawhidis arrival in India and urged home minister Rajnath Singh to put a ban on his future programmes.
The letter written by Maulana Kalbe Jawad Naqvi, general secretary Majlis Ulama-i-Hind, stated that the so-called leader has been invited by a channel to India. This man is masquerading as a scholar while he is not related to Shiism or Islam, because his photos, videos, books and speeches all are against the teachings of Islam and Shiite belief.
Saying that inviting such a person is like disrupting the peace of India, Maulana Jawad urged the government to put a ban on all his programmes.
Tawhidi who claims to be a Shia Muslim is often seen criticizing Islam and Islamic countries like Iran.
