    Shahi Imam blames Pak for Indian Muslims' plight

    The new Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari, said on Friday that Pakistani military junta's anti-Indian polices were causing problems for the 150 million Indian Muslims.

    ``I am ready to meet Gen Pervez Musharraf on behalf of the Indian Muslims and tell him that Muslims have to face multi-dimensional problems due to his anti-Indian steps,'' he said at a Friday congregation.

    He said Muslims have nothing to do with the ISI. ``I find no logic in blaming masjids and madrassas as ISI hideouts, ''these places are seats of worship.''

    Syed Ahmed Bukhari said that Muslims are being harrassed and dubbed as ISI agents.

    On Kashmir, he said that violence should immediately stop .

    He flayed the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) for asking religious minorities to go for ``bhartiya karan''(Indianisation) of their religion, stating religious freedom is guaranteed by the Constitution to all citizens. ``No political or religious group can force us to indianise the religon,'' he said.

    He said that secularism and Constitution will prevail in the country and the "communal forces `will be never be successful in their nefarious schemes. ``The muslims do not beg for any privilage, but want equal participation in the nation building,'' he said.

    Syed Bukhari, who was installed Shahi Imam on Saturday at a grand ceremony, also flayed the secular forces for exploiting the minorities to acheive their political objectives. ``The secular forces have been getting votes on the pretex of protection and justice, but ignore the Muslims after coming to power.''

    He also referred to the BJP's attempts to woo Muslims, adding the party at the Centre was talking about friendship with Muslims while on the other hand is reluctant to take action against communal elements.

    Good to see you back with the normal drivel.
    But here i agree.
    The govt should make a distinction between the Indian govt and indian muslims.

    You can't fix stupid. So might as well troll them!


      Yes Imam sahib is very right when he says that India's fundo Hindu govt has defamed and persecuted Indian Muslims!
