After Saudi Arabia banned the Tablighi Jamaat, the clamour for banning Jammat is growing louder as the #BanTablighiJamaat is trending on Twitter on Sunday.
The hashtag seeking a total ban on Jammat is trending on the microblogging site after the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), an affiliate of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), demanded a complete ban on the organization.
VHP working president Alok Kumar called Tablighi Jamaat “a manufacturing hub of radical Islamic terror” and “a host and patron of global terrorism.”
In a statement, the VHP also demanded that the Nizamuddin Markaz building in Delhi and the bank accounts associated with it should be sealed, and its “economic sources and resources” should be found out and plugged.
“Not only Bharat (India) but the whole world is in a serious trouble today due to the transgressions of the Tablighi Jamaat and its Nizamuddin Markaz,” it alleged.
The VHP also demanded that authorities “crackdown on institutions and organisations like Darul Uloom Deoband and PFI (Popular Front of India) that give direct or indirect nourishment to Tablighis, Tablighi Jamaat and Ijtema”.
“Just imagine the hate as they spit on doctors & the police!! Do they deserve any pity?? #BanTablighiJamaat,” said a Twitterati.
Another user said that Saudi Arabia an Islamic nation banned Tblighi Jmat, but if something similar is done in India liberals will declare India as Islamophobic.
Saudi Arabia has banned the Tablighi and Da’wah group, also known as Al Ahbab, calling it a ‘danger to society and one of the gates of terrorism’.
In a tweet on December 6, the country’s Ministry of Islamic Affairs said, “His Excellency the Minister of Islamic Affairs, Dr.#Abdullatif Al_Alsheikh directed the mosques’ preachers and the mosques that held Friday prayer temporary to allocate the next Friday sermon 5/6/1443 H to warn against (the Tablighi and Da’wah group) which is called (Al Ahbab)”.
