New Delhi: The Secretary General of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH), Mohammed Salim Engineer has opposed the proposal to start a course called ‘’Islamic Terrorism’’ in JNU
In a statement to the media the JIH Secretary General said: ‘’ We oppose the proposal to start a course in JNU by the name ‘Islamic Terrorism’. Associating the noble religion of Islam to terror indicates either a deep ignorance about Islam or it is deliberate attempt by some vested interests to malign this great religion and hurt the sentiments of its followers. Either way; the proposal is a disgrace to the highly regarded institution like JNU and there must be immediate steps from the concerned authorities to roll back the idea. Currently Jamaat-e-Islami Hind would like to wait for the answers sought by Delhi Minorities Commission from JNU regarding how the proposal was sought to be introduced as it would expose those who initiated this mischievous idea. Jamaat would like to know what was the due process adopted for its introduction and what would be its syllabus? Later Jamaat will support other like-minded organizations that are going to challenge it legally in the court of law’’.
