What’s Happening Puts Serious Question Mark on Constitution’s Supremacy: Maulana Arshad Madani

New Delhi, Dec. 21: Maulana Arshad Madani, President of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind said the politics of hatred will take the country to the path of destruction. He also said tampering with social fabric of the country is a major threat to the democratic structure of the country. He was addressing a press conference on current situation of the country here Wednesday.

Maulana Madani, while referring to the recent trespassing into Parliament, said, “No doubt it was a serious matter but the media didn’t ask any questions. Had there been Shakeel Ahmed in place of Sagar Sharma, the same media would have made much fuss, making the country narrow for the entire Muslim community. This politics of hatred will take the country to the path of destruction.”

He also said, “What is happening now in the name of politics has put a question mark on the supremacy of the Constitution.”

In reply to a question on Gyanvapi Masjid, Maulana Madani asserted, “We have no objection to the survey. We believe if the survey is conducted honestly, nothing will come out of it. But the way this new controversy has been raised is against the Places of Worship Act, 1991, in which it has been clearly stated that no such controversy will be raised in any place of worship which has been in existence since 1947.”

When asked if the Jamiat will take the matter to the Supreme Court, he said, “We will go as far as the law of the land allows us to go. On the silence of secular parties, he said the political party which brought this law in Parliament should speak on it instead of remaining silent.”

In response to another question on the Israel-Palestine conflict, he said, “It is important to know the history. Israel has usurped the Palestinian land and the people of Gaza are fighting to liberate their land. It’s wrong to call them terrorists.”

On the atmosphere prevailing in the country, he said, “Secularism means the state will have no religion, but unfortunately, now everything in the country is changing. Now politics is being done to please the majority only instead of the entire people. It is destructive for the country’s secular structure and democracy.”

Maulana asked all just-minded people of the country and those who believe in the principles of secularism to think seriously together and prepare an effective plan against it. The country’s media also has to play its fundamental role, otherwise the history of tomorrow won’t forgive us for it.
