AIUMB cautiously welcomes Narendra Modi statement on Indian Muslims

By TCN News,

New Delhi: All India Ulama &Mashaikh Board (AIUMB) has cautiously welcomed the Friday statement of Prime Minster Narendra Modi that he was confident that Al Qaeda’s chief Ayman Al-zawahiri’s statement to establish South Asia wing of Al Qaeda will fail in India as Indian Muslims would never dance to the tune of and never accept the terror group’s philosophy.

He said that for the first time the present head of government has said on an international News Channel that the patriotism of India Muslims is above questions. “An Indian Muslim will live and die for his country,” Modi had said in an interview to the CNN. “This statement by the P.M. Narendra Modi is vindictive of the stand taken by the board that a very huge population of Indian Muslims is Sufi in practice and profession that have flatly refused to take this external, infamous, intolerant ideology which is represented by ISIS, Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, Boko Haram and others working for the same ideology under several names and styles,” said Kichchawchvi who is associated with famous Kichaucha Sharif Dargah near Faizabad.

“There is certainly no immediate threat to Indian security by the Al Zawahiri Al Qaeda tape but we cannot take refuge in this seemingly feel-good situation as there is certainly a very small group of Muslim individuals and institutions are at work who subscribe to the Al Qaeda or Al Zawahiri ideology and they are looking for an opportunity to demonstrate their worth to their handlers sitting in gulf countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar,” said Kichchawchvi without identifying those individuals or groups.

Hazrat Maulana Syed Mohammad Ashraf Kichchawchvi said that P.M. rightly stated that Indian Muslim will live or die for the country because the history holds testimonies that Indian Muslims kept their spiritual contact with Khanqahs, Aastanas, Dargahs, mosques and other centres of reverence and veneration and worked for the harmony and co-existence in the society.
