AIUMB resents Abu Asim’s DNA remark.
Lucknow,All India Ulama & Mashaikh Board (AIUMB) an apex body of Sunni Sufi Muslims has reacted sharply on the statement of Samajwadi leader Abu Asim Azmi who has said that those Muslims would undergo DNA test who do not vote for Samajwadi Party.
Hazrat Maulana Syed Mohammad Ashraf Kichhauchhvi has in a statement reacted that it is now necessary to put Abu Asim on mental test. He is a political activist; he must keep himself limited to political views. He has no authority to issue edicts as whom to vote as a Muslim.
Hazrat Maulana Syed Mohammad Ashraf Kichhauchhvi said that in an election rally Abu Asim has crossed his limits as a political worker by expressing doubts about the religious credentials of a Muslims who does not vote for Samajwadi party. Maulana was clear to say that only a recognized Mufti can issue an edict. Even every cleric and Islamic cleric does not have such an authority. So, it is better for Azmi to keep himself restricted to political observations.
President AIUMB was clear in his views that Indian Muslim society will not tolerate such an advice with referring favors done to Muslims by Shri Mulayam Singh Yadav and invoking religious sentiments of the members of the community.
Yesterday in an election rally in Sant Kabir Nagar Abu Asim Azmi has said that any such Muslim is not a true Muslim who does not vote for Samajwadi Party in this election. By not voting for Samajwadi he has committed treachery to the community. He will have to undergo a DNA test to ascertain his identity as an RSS man.
Abu Asim also referred to Muzaffar Nagar Riots and said no one took his riot seriously .It was only Mulayam Singh who went there to nurse the wounds. This makes essential for a true Muslim to vote for Mulayam Singh’s party.
President AIUMB reacted to this observation and said that not voting Samajwadi is not a crime. Since the Akhilesh Yadav Samajwadi government in this state, U.P has seen several big communal riots including Muzaffar Nagar and it seems that the state government has surrendered to communalist and fascist forces and has allowed them completely free run.
