‘Sar tan se juda’ slogan is based on stupidity, Muslim ulema condemn killing of man in Udaipur


By Muslim Mirror Staff

Almost all prominent Muslim organisations and their leaders have condemned the killing of a man by two extremist in Rajasthan’s Udaipur city on Tuesday. They have urged members of the community to maintain and not take law into their own hands.


The man named Kanhaiya Lal was murdered in broad daylight after he purportedly supported Nupur Sharma, the suspended BJP spokesperson who has been in the limelight for her insulting remarks on Prophet Muhammad. Their murders, identified as Mohammad Reyaz Ansari and Ghaus Mohammad have been taken into police custody.

Here is how Muslim groups and leaders reacted to the same:

The murder cannot be justified. It is against the law of the land and our religion as well, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind general secretary Maulana Hakeemuddin Qasmi said in a press statement.

“The insult of the prophet of Islam – peace and blessing of Allah be upon him – by BJP leader Nupur Sharma is extremely painful for Muslims. The government’s inaction against her is like rubbing salt into their wound. Despite that, taking the law into one’s own hands, declaring someone guilty on his own and killing him is condemnable. It is not permitted by the law of the land nor by Islamic laws,” said All India Muslim Personal Law Board.

Reacting to the same, Ajmer Dargah chief Zainul Abedin Ali Khan said, “No religion promotes violence against humanity. Especially, in the religion of Islam, all the teachings act as sources of peace.”

Strict action should be taken against culprits: Kalbe Jawad Naqvi

Shia Muslim scholar Kalbe Jawad Naqvi said that Kanhaiya Lal’s murder is “very brutal and condemnable. He called on the government to take strict against the murderers.

Prophet Muhammad didn’t kill anyone for insulting him: Salman Nadwi

Lucknow-based Islamic scholar Salman Nadwi called the killing “open hooliganism”. He said that the slogan “gustakh e nabi ki ek saza sar tan se juda sar tan se juda” is “completely based on stupidity”. He further said that Prophet Muhammad’s enemies used to abuse him during his days in Mecca but historical texts do not indicate that his companions reacted in the manner as done in Udaipur.


  1. No. I don’t think its a stupidity. It is clearly mentioned in Kuran.. these Ulema’s are fooling people. Ulema’s should say that it is a part of Islamic scriptures.. however we don’t follow it now a days.

  2. Islamophobhia for purpose and the purpose is to create hate against Muslims. Now the hate started to create victims from both side .
    Muslims in india are living normal life and thinking as normal as hindus in India bcos they are Indians too. But, Yes no one can deny systemic humiliation and suppression of muslims are taking place in India.
    Dear poor/weaker muslims and hindus stay away from this game bcos you are not going to be benefitted in this. Please take care of your families and children.
    As per my knowledge normal Indian Muslims are very poor in Indian politics and I wish they should actively involve in Indian politics.
    For Hate Creators : u cant tamper ISLAM/Muslims by your crooked efforts bcos it is well fortified.

    • Islamophobia is a common thing in every country for very good reasons and examples that your fellow kin has established

  3. This country had a population of 1.3 bln and 79 % of it is Hindus. If we take law into our own hands all Muslims of the world will be wiped out from the face of the earth

  4. Why is it so difficult in Islam to distinguish what is islamic and what isn’t? The 2 beheaders clearly found a source in the Quran condoning this course of action for a perceived insult. They were so easily persuaded by islamic doctrine to carry out this heinous act that it is no wonder simple minded muslims across the world are ready to murder any ‘blasphemers’ and insults to their prophet. And how can the truth be insulting. Did not Nupur Sharma take the details straight from the Quran? Why the offence? Or is the truth too hard to digest?
    Samuel Paty all over again.

  5. India is the home of hindus just as pakistan was created for muslims. If muslims wete allowed to stay in india then they should abide by the rule of law set out by the people of that country. Muslims have got a country and should stop trying to destroy india if not go to your real home which was created solely for you
