ACJU uses Al-taqqiya to mis­lead Par­lia­ment: BBS

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS -

The Ulama Leader mis­lead par­lia­ment, me­dia, gen­eral pub­lic and the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity with a false ac­cu­sa­tion say­ing that Is­lamic youth moved to ISIS ide­ol­ogy

Is­su­ing a spe­cial state­ment, the Bodu Bala Sena or­gan­i­sa­tion yes­ter­day said that All Cey­lon Jam­miy­athul Ulama (ACJU) Pres­i­dent Rizvi Mufti had mis­led the par­lia­ment, me­dia, gen­eral pub­lic and the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity by us­ing Al-taqqiya dur­ing his tes­ti­mony be­fore the Par­lia­men­tary Se­lect Com­mit­tee prob­ing Easter at­tacks.

Al-taqqiya is a pre­cau­tion­ary dis­sim­u­la­tion or de­nial of re­li­gious be­lief and prac­tice in the face of per­se­cu­tion. Re­fer­ring to a state­ment made by ACJU Pres­i­dent Rizvi Mufti be­fore the PSC on Tues­day (11), BBS al­leged as Mufti say­ing it was the ac­tiv­i­ties by BBS that led to in­no­cent Mus­lim youth join­ing ISIS ex­trem­ism.

While giv­ing a state­ment at the PSC, Mufti said, their youth com­mu­nity had drawn their at­ten­tion to the ISIS due to the hate speeches made against the Mus­lim com­mu­nity.

“The Ulama Leader mis­lead par­lia­ment, me­dia, gen­eral pub­lic and the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity with a false ac­cu­sa­tion say­ing that Is­lamic youth moved to ISIS ide­ol­ogy. The BBS is cat­e­gor­i­cally de­nied his al­le­ga­tions and in­vite him for a pub­lic de­bate,” its state­ment said.

“While mis­lead­ing the PSC, the ACJU is try­ing to pre­tend that the Ulama com­mu­nity has more pu­rity events to visit God with their phys­i­cal body. We look at such state­ments with sym­pa­thy and kind­ness, be­cause it is the Ula­mas who aided the dis­sem­i­na­tion of Wah­habism in this coun­try,” the BBS charged.

BBS also urged the ACJU to stop spread­ing ‘hate­ful lies’ un­less they wish for the ‘naked truth about Ula­mas and Al-taqqiya to be made pub­lic’.

They point to the fact that while BBS was es­tab­lished in 2012, Chief Moulavi of Kat­tankudy mosque stated be­fore the PSC that ter­ror­ist Za­ha­ran was a pro­po­nent of rad­i­cal and re­li­gious ex­trem­ism even be­fore 2012.

If the ACJU con­tin­u­ously try to put their blame on the BBS, we would not hes­i­tate to ex­pose the real truth be­hind ACJU and their Al-taqqiya. We have all kinds of doc­u­ments to prove that ACJU was ac­cused of all sorts of ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing the Easter Sun­day at­tack, the state­ment fur­ther added.
