Srinagar: Mutahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU), an amalgam of clerics led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, on Monday demanded strict action against the members of a extremist Hindu group in Jammu’s Reasi, which has made blasphemous remarks against Prophet of Islam (Pbuh).

Taking strong note of the blasphemous remarks made by the members of Sentinel Bharat Raksha Manch, an MMU spokesperson said today that some zealots were making a deliberate attempt to hurt the sentiments of Muslims across the world.

“It is extremely unfortunate that the anti-Islam forces are being time and again encouraged to indulge in such deliberate provocative acts to serve their petty interests by hurting the religious sentiments of Muslims,” the MMU spokesperson said.

“Muslims can sacrifice their lives, and all but cannot bear an iota of disrespect to the honour and dignity of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh); this is the belief of a Muslim,” the spokesperson added.

The MMU said that the blasphemous remarks by zealots Satpal Sharma and Deepak, are meant to cause hurt and hatred and hence unendurable.

The religious conglomerate demanded strict and exemplary punishment to those who committed this crime and have been arrested, so that no one swayed with “communal frenzy and deliberate provocation”, musters courage to commit such shameful act again or harm the centuries-old communal harmony and mutual brotherhood in Jammu & Kashmir.

According to the spokesperson, all the religious, educational, social and welfare organisations associated with the MMU which comprise of Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid, Dar-ul-Uloom Raheemiya, Muslim Personal Law Board, Jamiat Ahle Hadees, Jama’at-e-Islami, Anjuman-e- Sharie Shiayan, Itihaad-ul-Muslimeen, Anjuman Himayat-ul-Islam, Jamiat Hamdania, Anjuman Ulema-e-Ahnaaf, Dar-ul-Uloom Qasmia, Dar-ul-Uloom Bilaliya, Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam, Anjuman Mazhar-ul-Haq, Jamiat-ul-Aima Wal Ulema, Anjuman Aima Wa Mashaa’ikh Kashmir, Dar-ul-Uloom Naqshbandiya, Dar-ul-Uloom Rasheediya, Karwaan-e-Islami, Ahl-e-Bayt Foundation, Madrasa Kanz-ul-Uloom, Peruwan-e-Wilayat, Auqaf Islamiya Khirram Sarhama, Anjuman Tanzeem-ul-Makaatib, Muhammadi Trust, and others in a joint statement made it clear that Muslims can never tolerate disrespect or ill-remarks against their beloved Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) the epitome of humaneness and peace and is dear to each and every Muslim than their own selves.
