Stop one Rushdie to stop hundreds of Rushdies: Salman Rushdie to visit India!

Apostasy and Blasphemy are the major crimes according to Islam as well as Indian constitution. Freedom of speech and expression, and Blasphemy are two contradictory terms. We should understand these terms in depth as it is the substance of immense concern in our communities.

What will Indian government do if any Indian citizen commits blasphemy with the country? Will he be excused in the name of freedom of speech and expression? Will the debate prolong whether to penalize him or not? Each one sitting with the authority would unite and agree to the decision of punishing him to the severest, because blasphemy is not an ordinary crime; it is an invitation of waging war with the whole Nation!

Similar is the case of Salman Rushdie. He has committed blasphemy against the religion of Islam, mocked its teachings without knowledge, and besmirched its heroes to the core. He not only hurt the feelings of the community but also played with their sentiments throughout.

Maulana Abul Qasim Nomani, Vice Chancellor of Darul Uloom, rightly pointed out and stood against the visit of the author of “Satanic Verses” (SV). It is not only Nomani who is against the visit but the whole Muslim community. None of us wants him to step in the soil of our beloved country. We love this country so we need to keep it uncontaminated from those who blaspheme. All sensible and true citizens would think the same.
