Ulema condemn detention of Maulana Kaleem Siddiqui
By TwoCircles.net staff reporter
Kandhla, UP : The detention of renowned Muslim spiritual leader of Haryana Maulana Kaleem Siddiqui has caused grave concern among the Muslim Ulema and Dawah workers.
The moving spirit behind a peace organisation known as Payaam-e-Insaniyat, Maulana Siddiqui, who is also one of the direct disciples of Late Maulana Ali Miyan, is the author of many books. He is also the moving spirit behind over a dozen madrasas and hundreds of maktabs spread over Haryana and Punjab. He has been running a distinguished institution Jamiat Shah Waliullah.
The patron of Madrasa Makhzanul Uloom Maulana Maqsood Ahmad called the detention of Maulana Kaleem Siddiqui "an act of oppression".
"When the police will detain the champions of peace, what will be the condition of safety and protection of common man?" he wondered.
"Doing Dawah work is his mission and effecting Hindu-Muslim unity and communal harmony is one of his priorities. It is really uncalled for and highly condemnable to detain such a peace-loving person for about nine hours in the police station," he added.
Other Ulema who condemned the detention of Maulana Siddiqui include chief patron of Jamia Raheemia Junaid Mazahri, the principal of Jamia Imam Rahmatullah Maulana Muhammad Iftikhar, president Dawat Education Mufti Muhammad Sharafat and others.
They urged the Muslim organisations headquartered in the national capital to launch a joint campaign against police atrocities.
