Jameel Ilyasi retracts, Aziz Burney takes London route to Tel Aviv

New Delhi : A nine-member delegation of so-called Muslim intellectuals and journalists flew to Mumbai Tuesday evening and from there they are scheduled to fly for Tel Aviv Wednesday. But two important members of the delegation – President All India Imam Organisation Maulana Jameel Ilyasi and Editor Rashtriya Sahara Aziz Burney – did not reach Delhi (domestic) Airport by the time the airlines was scheduled to fly, reports Urdu daily Hindustan Express Wednesday.

As for Maulana Jameel Ilyasi, the report says that after the revelation of the secret visit to Israel he has apparently retracted.

"He (Maulana Jameel Ilyasi) even made a call to the Hindustan Express and tried to give the impression that in view of the protests (from various Muslim quarters) he was then not from among the delegation going to Israel," says the Express report adding that the paper is yet to confirm from some reliable sources whether or not he is going to Tel

The report also says that Aziz Burney has changed the route of his journey, and instead of undertaking the journey as per the scheduled route Delhi-Mumbai-Tel Aviv he flew to London and from there he will fly to Tel Aviv and join the delegation.

The report further says that Aziz Burney has included a senior journalist of Rashtriya Sahara, Shakeel Hasan Shamshi in the delegation just to please his Zionist masters.

As for Maulana Jameel Ilyasi’s son Maulana Umair Ilyasi, the report speculates that if the former did not reach Tel Aviv via some other route (as Aziz Burney has done), his son Umair will represent him.

The paper laments that despite its special arrangements to gather the details of their visit to Israel, the organisers’ bid to keep the visit secret is so meticulously planned and successfully effective that the paper’s reliable sources failed to provide further information on the last-minute changes in the schedule of the visit.
