Ever since the pictures of Muslim women praying to lord Rama emerged from Varanasi, the Darul Uloom Deoband issued a fatwa against them calling the act as ‘Unislamic’.
The Ulema has asked the women to seek forgiveness from Allah, read the verses of the Quran, and then re-enter the Islamic faith.
Now, the women in picture have come forward and reacted to the fatwa issued against them.
As per these women, they have been practicing the ritual of praying to Lord Rama since 2006, and have been issued threats and fatwas ever since.
“We believe in communal harmony of India, and we practice the rituals as per Hindu-Muslim traditions. Shri Ram is our ancestor, and ancestors don’t change”, said Nazma.
Launching an attack on the Maulanas, Nazma said, “Please stop issuing fatwas every now and then, or else, you do your job and we’ll do ours. We want Hindus and Muslims to live peacefully”, Nazma concluded.
