  • Animal sacrifice during Bakrid is a bad practice like Triple Talaq, says MRM
  • On September 11, a march from Lucknow to Ayodhya was planned in support for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya
  • Eid-ul-Azha (Bakrid) will be celebrated on September 2

Lucknow, Aug 31, 2017: The Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM), an RSS affiliate, has appealed to Muslims to sacrifice bad habits and not goats this Eid-ul-Azha (Bakrid).

According to PTI report, “Animal sacrifice during Bakrid is a bad practice like Triple Talaq. People should boycott those advocating sacrifice on the day. Giving ‘Qurbani‘ during Bakrid is ‘haram’ (not approved) in Islam”, said MRM Convenor (Awadh Prant-UP) Syed Hasan Kausar.

“If anyone wanted to give sacrifice, he should shun his bad habits and cut a (symbolic) goat cake on Bakrid,” he said.

Kausar said that there were many superstitions amongst Muslims surrounding animal sacrifice and remarked that those with better education would “understand Islam.”

Meanwhile, MRM co-convenor K A Khurshid Agha supported a Ram temple in Ayodhya.

“As per Quran, prayers can not be offered at a disputed place, so how can the Babri mosque be constructed at the disputed site in Ayodhya,” he said.

Previously, Manch had announced that it would start a nationwide campaign to urge Muslims against consecrating cows on Eid-Ul-Azha primarily in Uttar Pradesh, West Bihar, and Bengal.

A resolution was passed against cow slaughter at an event presided by Indresh Kumar, senior RSS leader, in New Delhi where MRM leaders met Islamic scholars associated with the organization.

Agha said that “Muslims were confused about how to follow the path of Allah and they should come up against animal sacrifice.”

On September 11, a march from Lucknow to Ayodhya was planned in support for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya by the organization. The march will reach Ayodhya on September 17, during which the MRM will organize presentations at every third kilometer to convince people about the construction of the temple.

In recent years there have been several incidents involving the Burqa. In 2009, a state college in Karnataka told a student she was not allowed to attend classes wearing a Burqa. It was later reported that the young girl reached a “compromise arrangement” with the college but did not continue in the same college. Days later, violent protests sparked in Hyderabad after a college principal allegedly told students not to wear a Burqa.

But opposite episodes have also occurred. In July 2010, a teacher at Kolkata’s Aliah University, which has a focus on Islamic studies, was not allowed to teach without a Burqa. The report followed an official notice released in April 2010, in which the university dismissed suggestions it enforced a dress code, mentioning specifically the use of the Burqa within its campus.

At some point imposing a ban on Burqa will be beneficial…
Point 1:
According to Islam, it is not necessary to cover the face. Hands and face can be uncovered. So banning won’t conflict freedom of practicing religion. And it will not be against any religion.
Point 2:
There are security issues. Imagine man/women under burqa leaves a bag in a public place which later blasts. Now, what do police have? CCTV cameras, forget face they cannot determine if is it male or female due to Burqa. It is the biggest security Loophole.
Point 3:
Many Muslim women do not have a bank account because they are not allowed to cover their face in bank premises. If you didn’t know then yes you cannot cover your face with bank premises and ATM.
Point 4:
It’s easy to have multiple voters ID. Due to Burqa women can go and vote multiple times. This increases corruption in the election.
Point 5:
Crimes under Burqa are on the rise. Murder, kidnapping, robbery are been carried out using Burqa. It’s the biggest advantage for criminals.

What Noorjehan Safia says…
Noorjehan Safia Niaz, a founding member of Bhartiya Muslim Mahila Andolan, a movement which works to improve the status of Muslim women in India, said security concerns have not been a major issue when it comes to dressing. “Muslim women in India comply with all the laws. They are active participants when it comes to elections and has their photos on their passports. So identification and security have never been an issue as such,” she said.
Discrimination, however, has sometimes caused problems, said Ms. Niaz. “There are cases when women are not considered for a particular job because they wear a Burqa. In such cases, women have negotiated. They do not wear Burqa while at work but before and after it they put it on.” Overall, Ms. Niaz said that women themselves – not the law – should decide what to wear. “Let each woman decide what she wants to wear. Neither can you enforce a ban on Burqa nor can you force women to wear it.”
