On Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan's visit to Deoband

M Wadood Sajid,

The terrestrial distance between the two cities in Uttar Pradesh i.e. Bareilly and Deoband is barely 299 km, yet, ideologically they are thousands miles away from each other. This distance has lengthened not in years but decades.

Recently a coterie of the so called Sufis, in a conference held in Delhi, and allegedly sponsored by the Government, widened this ideological gap by millions of miles and the chances of any reduction of this distance had thus become bleaker and bleaker.

सिद्धांत मोहन, TwoCircles.net,

आजमगढ़: उत्तर प्रदेश के जिले आजमगढ़ में पिछले तीन दिनों से साम्प्रदायिक तनाव कायम है. पुलिस और प्रशासन का कहना है कि स्थिति नियंत्रण में है लेकिन मौके पर मौजूद लोग और गांवों के निवासी बताते हैं कि सबकुछ ठीक नहीं है.

खुदादादपुर के निवासी कामिल भीड़ के हमले में घायल हो चुके हैं. वे बताते हैं कि पुलिस की तैनाती केवल मुस्लिमबहुल गांवों के बाहर ही है. हमारे गाँव से कोई भी ज़रूरी काम के लिए भी निकल रहा है तो पुलिस उसे दौड़ाकर पीट रही है. लेकिन इसके ठीक उलट खुदादादपुर से ही सटे हुए अन्य हिन्दूबहुल गांवों में पुलिस की तैनाती नहीं है.
