New Delhi: The condemnation of Saudi rulers is growing up for declaring Muslim Brotherhood a terror outfit. After Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama, leading Muslim scholars and organizations have come down heavily on the Suadi government for its decision of declaring Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas as ‘terrorist organization’. They said on Friday that Saudi rulers, who claimed to be custodians of Holy Mosques, have hurt the sentiments of Muslim all over the world by this unjust and anti-Islamic decision.
Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH), Markazi Jamiat-e-Ulama, All India Deeni Madarsi Board and many other Muslim organizations have strongly criticized Saudi Arabia’s move to declare Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization and urged the Saudi monarchy to immediately review the decision. JIH chief, MaulanaJalaluddin Umri said that the movement started by the Muslim Brotherhood is based on Islamic principle so banning it would definitely hurt Muslim world over. He also lauded the role of Muslim Brotherhood in bridging gap between different Arab nations. He said Muslim Brotherhood as an international reformative social organization and Hamas is an organization that is fiercely resisting Zionist state in the Middle East.
Chairman of World Islamic Forum Maulana Esaa Mansuri, Fatwa Mobile Service’s Mufti Mohammad Arshad Farooqi. Madaris Board’ s chief Maulana Yaqoob Bulandshehri and Jamiat secretary Maulana Feroz Akhtar Qasmi said in a joint statement that Saudi rulers have committed a grave sin by declaring Muslim brotherhood as terrorist group. They asked King Abdullah and leading Ulama of Saudi Arabia to revoke the decision with regard to Muslim Brotherhood. They warned that Muslims all over the world will protest and condemn this act of Saudi Arabia. They also urged the Saudi Ulama to pursue the Saudi rulers for taking back the decision. “It is the duty of Saudi Ulama to pressure their Saudi rulers in this regard as Muslims are enraged over the decision.”
They pointed out that Muslims gave reverence to Saudi Arabia because it is home to Islam’s holy places as they have no love for the despotic rulers of that country who are stooge of Western powers.
Earlier, Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama, Lucknow has taken the lead in this regard by snubbing Saudi delegation’s visit to the historic institution. It described the Saudi government more ‘oppressive than the Modi government of Gujarat and newly enacted Saudi law more draconian the TADA and POTA.
One analyst said the condemnation by the Indian Muslims should be a wakeup call to the Saudi rulers who played a dirty game in the ouster of President Mohammad Mursi’s elected government last year. He warned that the Saudi ruler’s should not take for granted the support of Indian Muslims as it can buy loyalty of some religious organizations by using its money power but not the Muslim masses. It is puzzling that both the factions of Jamiat-e-Ulama Hind are mum on the issue while one cannot except that Jamiat Ahle-Hadees, the oldest religious organization which claimed to be vanguard of Islam, would dare to open its mouth against the Saudi rulers.
