LOL Sure, then the maulvi might as well protest against the Indian National Emblem/Symbol - Emperor Ashoka's four lions coz its associated with a Hindu turned Buddhist King, or the National Motto, the Sanskrit Slogan "Satyamev Jayate" that quite easily be connected to the Bhagvad Gita preaching "Only Truth Triumphs in the end" or even Gandhi's picture on the currency notes as he was a Hindu and his picture on numeruous notes might outweigh the struggle of muslims in the Independence of India and children might think only Hindu leaders were the real heroes Why choose the National Song alone?!Originally Posted by Asim Aquil
Correct me if I am wrong but I believe fatwas are supposedly to educate Muslims on their religion and thats it? What we see here is a Mullah indirectly challenging the nation's integrity and questioning the constitution! lol All becoz he never bothered to lookup on the meaning of the words "Vande Mataram". He is fighting for secularism you claim? Well I doubt if he even bothered to find out what secularism means in the first place.
Someone made a very valid point earlier that this fatwa will be responsible for poisoning young minds, those who dont know anything about religions and religious politics, thats basically what the Mullah (Maulvi is a term used with respect yeah?) has done here.
His fatwa is sure to cause an epidemic. An epidemic that will do more harm than good to the people practising his religion and the people of the country he belongs to.
But for now, its only gonna help the communal divide deapen, and live on for generations to come.
