Lucknow: Nadwatul Ulama , the renowned Islamic seminary of India has cancelled a trip by a Saudi delegation to the historic institution that was supposed to take place on Sunday. The message issued by Nadwa authorities said the reason for the cancellation of their visit was due to Saudi Arabia declaring Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas terrorist organizations.
The message was posted on the Facebook page of Maulana Salman Nadwi who is the Dean of the Faculty of Shariah at Nadwatul Ulama in Lucknow. The message said that administration of Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama decided to take this extreme step because of their “religious, community, and reformative responsibility.”
The statement termed Muslim Brotherhood as an international reformative social organization and Hamas an organization that fiercely resists Israel.
The statement comes just two days after Saudi Arabia declared Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. In February, Saudi Arabia implemented a new law that sanctions tough punishment for any Saudi who support or join organizations classified as terrorist organizations.
In an interesting comparison, Nadwa called the Saudi Government as bigger “zaalim” than Narendra Modi, the controversial Gujarat chief minister who presided over a genocide in 2002.
The Saudi government is aware of the fact that Muslims around the world have strong view about the role which was played by the regime to oust Morsi , so as a damage control move it is sending Imams, and delegates in Muslim world to clear the ‘misunderstanding’.
Recently Imam of Masjid e Nabwi, Dr. Shaikh Abdul Mohsen Bin Mohammad Bin Abdul Rahman Al-Qasim visited India and attended many functions , before him a delegation led by Saudi Minister of Islamic Affairs Sheikh Saleh bin Abdul-Aziz Al ash-Sheikh visited Darul Uloom Deoband and the headquarters of Jamat e Islami in New Delhi.
