Majlis-e-Ulma-e-Hind writes letter to Home minister opposing Tawhidi’s arrival in India



General secretary of Majlis Ulmae Hind, Maulana Kalbe Jawad

Majlis Ulama-e-Hind has written a letter to home minister expressing its disapproval over the arrival of controversial Muslim preacher Imam Tawhidi in India, Siasatdaily.com reported,

It wrote a letter to Home Minister Rajnath Singh to express its disapproval on his visit. The organisation also slammed Zee TV network for inviting such an irresponsible person.

After a unanimous decision taken by all Ulamas, the Majlis Ulama-e-Hind strongly opposed Tawhidi’s arrival in India and urged home minister Rajnath Singh to put a ban on his future programmes.

The letter written by Maulana Kalbe Jawad Naqvi, general secretary Majlis Ulama-i-Hind, stated that the so-called leader has been invited by a channel to India. This man is masquerading as a scholar while he is not related to Shi’ism or Islam, because his photos, videos, books and speeches all are against the teachings of Islam and Shi’ite belief.


Kashmir needs independent journalism…

…now, more than ever to give a voice to the voiceless. The press in Kashmir has operated under tremendous pressures of reporting from a conflict zone but since August 2019 we find ourselves in unchartered territory. The Kashmir Walla is among the oldest independent media outlets in Kashmir and has withstood successive lockdowns as well as attempts to suppress us, fighting back with authoritative ground reports based on facts.

We believe in making the powers that be accountable to their actions but to also hold the mirror to the society. We believe in covering all sides of the story and that empowerment in essence means the ability to make informed decisions. As such we have not allowed our journalism to be influenced by the pressures.

Despite the new and still unknown pressures, we are all the more committed to keep informing you of events and stories that matter. Our recent coverage of events has brought us an increased readership. However, the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic crisis has affected our operational capabilities. We are facing an existential threat but only your support can help us withstand this and maintain our editorial independence.

We need your solidarity to keep our journalism going. Your contribution will empower us to keep you informed on stories that matter from Kashmir. Show your solidarity by joining our members community. Kashmir thanks you.
