Original Article : BSP MP’s visit to temple invites ire of clerics

A newly-elected BSP MP, who visited a temple after winning Lok Sabha election, on Tuesday faced the ire of Muslim clerics who termed his act as “unislamic”.

But Kadir Rana, the MP from Muzaffarnagar, said he had done nothing against the Islamic law.

Reacting sharply to Rana’s visit, clerics of the leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband said the MP had violated the Shariat Law.

“Rana’s action was against the Shariat Law, which says a Muslim cannot offer prayer to anyone except the Allah,” seminary’s Deputy Chancellor Maulana Abdul Khalik said.

Similar views were expressed by Maulana Mohammad Sufiyan Kasmi, a member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board, and Mufti Mohammad Arif and Mufti Zulfikar, both local clerics.

Rana, during a victory procession after the Lok Sabha poll results were out on May 16, had visited a temple Muzaffarnagar.
