Bengal Imam Association has issued a threat to Muslim allies of the BJP and RSS that their families will not be spared in the coming days if they do not "rectify their mistakes. The threat come in the wake of Bhumi pujan
Bengaluru: Close on the heels of reports emerging that estranged wife of Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami received rape and death threats for sending out congratulatory wishes for Hindus in relation to the Bhumi pujan of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, there are now reports that Bengal Imam Association has issued a threat to Muslim allies of the BJP and RSS that their families will not be spared in the coming days if they do not "rectify their mistakes".
"Recently, the foundation stone was laid to construct a temple on a site that once hosted a mosque. So, it is clear that BJP and RSS are not friends of Muslims. A Muslim will not remain a Muslim if he remains with someone who is against Islam. Muslims who are members of RSS, VHP and its affiliated organisations need to think about their positions. They have to decide whether they want to remain with the BJP-RSS combine or rectify their mistakes. They must remember that in the days to come their families will not be spared", said a statement, as quoted by Indian Express.
It was the Supreme Court of India, after hearing the case for well over a month, that decided to allot the land to Hindus to build a grand temple. The court, in its infinite wisdom, even decreed that Muslims be given 5 acres of land to build a mosque in Ayodhya itself.
However, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, has not taken the verdict in the right spirit.
After PM Modi performed the bhumi pujan, it issued an incendiary statement, thus: "No need to be heartbroken. Situations don't last forever."
This attitude of the AIMPLB comes even as the top court dismissed review petitions on the same.
It is rather unfortunate that such a move is adhered to, which has the potential to cause unrest in the society.
