Dargah-e-Ala Hazrat in Bareilly passes fatwa against Hafiz Saeed

Bareilly (Uttar Pradesh), Aug. 18 (ANI): The Dargah-e-Ala Hazrat on Thursday issued a fatwa against Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed, declaring him anti-Islamic and a man of terrorist ideology.

The fatwa issued by Mohammed Saleem Barelvi, an Islamic seminary in Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh has asked every Muslim not to follow Saeed and his idelogies.

The 'fatwa' was issued by Manzar-e-Islam Saudagaran, an institution associated with Dargah Ala Hazrat, in a reply to a question asked by Mohammad Moinuddin of Jaipur.

Barelvi, in his letter, had written that Saeed influences people in killing and terrorist activities and questioned whether such a person has the right to call himself a Muslim.

He asked whether such a person can be considered a Muslim and whether it is right to follow his preaching.

In his 'fatwa', Mufti Saleem said that having any type of connection with persons working against the dignity of Allah and the Prophet was illegal and 'haraam', an act that is forbidden by Allah.

It stated that any person who regards Saeed as Muslim is a coward.

It said that considering him as Muslim and listening to his words was also illegal and prohibited.

As per the fatwa, Saeed was a man with terrorist ideology, who with his acts has brought infamy to Islam and Muslims across the world. Therefore, it was compulsory for every Muslim not to follow him and keep away from his ideology.

Addressing a rally held under the banner of 'Defence Council of Pakistan' in Karachi on Sunday, Saeed said, "Kashmiris had announced before the partition that they wanted to remain with Pakistan. But after the partition, India forcibly sent Army to Jammu and Kashmir."

He said on this Quaid-e-Azam, Mohammad Ali Jinnah ordered his commander-in-chief to respond by sending troops but he refused to obey his orders.

"Now, I ask Gen Raheel Sharif to send troops in (Jammu and) Kashmir as Quaid-e-Azam's order is pending," he added.

Saeed said he was not asking for a war with India but they (Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif) must form a strategy regarding the Kashmir issue. (ANI)
