New Delhi, Dec 17 (ANI): Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (JUH) leader Mehmood Madani has criticised the act of militancy, calling it a curse on mankind.
Addressing reporters here last evening, Madani praised Indian Muslims for openly condemning the barbaric act of militancy and said that for the first time general public have come out of their houses in huge numbers.
“This is the specialty of India and Indian Muslims who come out and openly condemn the terror attacks. We are doing that job which has not been done by anyone in the world. Those who are promoting the acts of terror and terrorism are enemy of both the humanity and Islam,” said Madani.
He also asserted that his organisation is also planning to hold a conference of Islamic scholars to discuss the further strategy so as to prevent some people from tarnishing the image of Islam.
“My opinion is that a conference should be held in New Delhi in which Islamic scholars from all across Asia are invited and a debate should be conducted on how to prevent some people from tarnishing the image of Islam,” added Madani.
Madani is also a Member of the Parliament representing Uttar Pradesh in the Rajya Sabha.
JUH, along with the Dar-ul Uloom Deoband had issued a fatwa against terrorism on May 31.
Observing that the recent attacks in Mumbai had aimed at hitting spreading communal disharmony, Muslim intellectuals have asked the entire country to unite against the elements of terrorism. (ANI)
