ISIS not Muslim, people of other faith defaming Islam: Assam leader
'ISIS is not at all Muslims, rather these are people from other religion wearing masks and defaming Islam', viewed Vice President of All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat H.R.A. Choudhury
Agartala: 'ISIS is not at all Muslims, rather these are people from other religion wearing masks and defaming Islam', viewed Vice President of All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat H.R.A. Choudhury.
Speaking to ANI at the sideline of a convention Choudhury said, 'I understand that these people (ISIS) are not Muslims at all. They are not Muslims and are from some other religion and wearing Muslim masks and doing all their activities.'
Choudhury, a senior advocate of Gauhati High Court and president of Samajwadi Party of Assam's state committee, was one of the chief guests at the convention of Tripura State Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind in Agartala Sunday.
According to the senior Muslim leader, due to the destructive activities of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the entire Muslim community is affected globally and suspected to be involved or sympathiser of terrorist activities.
'Everyone is affected and questions are being raised (against Islam) due to the ISIS activities. Those who are doing all these in the name of the Koran and Allah are misusing the name of Koran and Allah. See no religion teaches all these .......... a real Muslim can never do all these things,' said Choudhury.
He expressed that in India's northeast often the people of Islamic faith are often under doubt due to subversive activities conducted by intruders for neighbouring Bangladesh or even from Pakistan.
According to him, Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind, - the largest organisation of Muslims in India is keeping a strict vigil on such activities and if there is any attempt to involve the local Muslim population in terrorist and ISIS activities, and so it will be very tough for them to flouring in this part of India.
Though a previously released map of Islamic State territorial claims did not include India or Bangladesh but included the Middle East, including Israel, the Arabian Peninsula, North Africa, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Europe including the Balkans and Spain but of late a Twitter account affiliated with the Islamic State proclaimed the formation of a new ISIS province 'Wilayat Hind' which includes India and Bangladesh.
