Maulana Mehmood Madni, head of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind (MM group), said on Sunday that organizations that promote terrorism and violence by misinterpreting ‘Jihad’ are not in the interest of the country or Islamically, but deserve any help. . He said it is ‘our national duty’ to make sacrifices for the homeland.
Madani also said on the last day of his Jamiat group’s 34th three-day convention at Ramlila Maidan here that despite the absence of a caste system in Islam, ‘pasmandas’ (backward castes) exist at the grassroots level. Madani welcomed the recent measures taken by the government regarding the Muslims of Pasmanda, saying that “we are ashamed” of the atrocities committed against them in the name of the caste and vowed to work to eliminate them.
While reading the message to compatriots on the last day of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind convention, the former Rajya Sabha member said: “Supposed organizations spread terrorism and violence by misinterpreting Jihad in the name of Islam. It is not eligible for our cooperation from the point of view of the interest of the country and in accordance with the orders of Islam. On the contrary, sacrifice, loyalty and patriotism for our motherland is our national duty and Qaumi (national) Maulana Madani also called on Muslims to give women their share in ancestral property according to Shariat.
On the issue of Pasmanda, he said: “There is no caste discrimination anywhere in Islam, but despite this, the existence of Pasmanda (backward castes) among Muslims is a fundamental reality. There is no doubt that discrimination against the Pasmanda community is reprehensible from a religious, moral and human point of view.
He said: “In such a situation, on the occasion of this convention, we want to announce that the tortures have been carried out in the name of castism. We are sorry and we are all determined to remove it.
Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind is divided into two groups. One group is headed by Mahmood Madani, a former Rajya Sabha member, while the other group is headed by Maulana Arshad Madani. Arshad Madani is the uncle of Mahmood Madani. When Mahmood’s father and Jamiat chief Asad Ahmad Madani died in 2006, a dispute arose between him and his uncle over the leadership of the organization, causing a split and the organization split into two factions.
