Srinagar 13 March (KNB): Quran is La Rayba Fih (doubtless) for Muslims, and nothing can be changed from Bismillah to An-Nas, said Shia leader and chairman of J&K Ittehad ul Muslimeen Masroor Abbas Ansari on Saturday while responding in reaction to the Wasim Rizvi’s filing of PIL in court for removing of 26 verses of Quran which he claims to propagate ‘violence’.
While talking to the Kashmir News Bureau, Masroor Abbas said that it is not the first time Wasim Rizvi has said something of such kind. He said that Wasim Rizvi was excluded from Islam and Shia sect by the revered Ayatollah Sistani after raising some issues and is Munkir of rules of Islam and Shi’ism.
“How can a person, who does not know the meaning of the Quran and does not know how to read it, demand such a thing? Our belief is that the Quran is Allah’s book and was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (SAW). From Bismillah to An-Nas, everything written in Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (SAW) from time to time and was recorded and divided into chapters which later was distributed to the people,” said Masroor Abbas.
He further said that Wasim Rizvi’s claims that there have been some ‘additions’ in the Quran are preposterous. “The Quran is La Rayba Fih (Doubtless), and constitution of Muslims. Wasim Rizvi is doing such things for political gains,” Masroor Abbas said.
Responding to a question of Wasim Rizvi’s likely chances of creating a rift between Sunni and Shias by his move, he said that it could be seen in that way also and past statements of Wasim are the justification of that thing.
Masroor Abbas said that Wasim Rizvi’s words should not be seen through an angle of a Shia as he has already been excluded from the sect of Shi’ism.
He also appealed that people of J&K should not fall prey to Rizvi’s tactics of creating a divide between Sunni and Shia and urged to keep the unity between two sects intact. (KNB)
