In a strong and ethical move, Indian Muslim clerics and imams have called for action against 26/11 mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed for his anti-India activities. On Wednesday, the clerics passed a resolution to this effect at a gathering in Mumbai, adding more than 1,000 Muslim clerics and imams supported the motion.
It has been sent to Amr Abdellatif Aboulatta, chair of the UN Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Committee at the Security Council, with a copy marked to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
Mumbai-based NGO Islamic Defence Cyber Cell, Dr Abdur Rahman Anjaria, who introduced the resolution said, “Hafiz Saeed and the terror outfits he heads are threats to global peace. He calls India enemy number one but he is the enemy of Islam and humanity”.
Anjaria told PTI, “We passed the resolution at a gathering held at a madrassa and unanimously denounced JuD and several other Pakistan-based terror outfits which are hellbent on harming our country.”
When asked about his stand on Kashmir, the cleric termed the matter to be internal affair of India and bolstered that no third party should interfere in it.
Saeed is being tried on multiple cases in India but agencies like the National Investigation Agency and the Enforcement Directorate on cases of terrorism, conspiracy, terror funding etc.
