Faizabad: ‘Those Muslims who are against the construction of a Ram Temple in Ayodhya should go to Pakistan or join ISIS’.
This was stated by by the chief of the Shia Waqf Board, Uttar Pradesh Waseem Rizvi. He also offered prayers at the disputed site and had a meeting with the Ram Janambhoomi chief priest Acharya Satyendra Das, reported the Times of India.
“Those who are secular have never been against the temple. Those who are opposing Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya and want to build Babri Mosque at the site should go to Pakistan or Bangladesh. There is no place for fundamentalist Muslims in India.”
He added that ‘fundamentalists’ who want a mosque at the sacred place for Hindus, should join ISIS.
“Ayodhya is a sacred place for Hindus, so Masjid should not be built in Ayodhya. Those who want a Masjid there should go and join forces of ISIS chief Abu Baqar Baghdadi,” said Rizvi.
He also mentioned that fundamentalists like Zakir Naik, who are trying to ‘destroy the country’, should migrate to Pakistan or Afghanistan.
While reacting to Rizvi’s comments, the Vice President of the Save Waqf India, demanded his immediate arrest.
“His hate statements are communalizing the whole environment.”
Rizvi is not new to controversies. Recently, he had written to Narendra Modi that Madarsas (Islamic seminaries) should be closed down as they ‘increase terrorism’.
