This guy is a classic anarchist in India. First of all, he or these other Islamists do not even begin to comprehend God and worship in its true sense… and then they go about creating an entire population of sub-optimal citizens who can’t contribute economically or socially to the society they live in!
National song Vande Mataram is ‘against Islamic beliefs’ and asking Muslims to sing it would amount to ‘suppression’ of the community, Shahi Imam of Delhi’s Jama Masjid Syed Ahmed Bukhari said on Sunday.
Addressing a press meet in Allahabad, Bukhari, who is also patron of the United Democratic Front, said according to the tenets of Islam, one could love one’s country and even lay down one’s life for it if the circumstances so demand.
“But when it comes to worship only Allah is given that honour. A Muslim cannot worship his or her parents, motherland and even the Prophet though they are held in high esteem,” he said, reacting to a Central directive to states for recitation of Vande Mataram in educational institutions during a celebration on September 7 to mark the national song’s centenary.
