Syed Atif Ali Qadri, the Chairman of All India Minority United Council, yesterday announced a prize money of Rs 20 lakh to any person who would put “Kulbhushan Jadhav’s shoes around Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s neck and parades him across India.”
Supporting his announcement, he said it was made after carefully considering Sharif’s unsuccessful policies on containing terrorism in Pakistan and giving shelter to “un-Islamic” terrorist organisation ISIS –
“Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been unsuccessful in dealing with this un-Islamic terror, so I announce that if anybody puts garland of Kulbhusan Jadhav’s shoes around his neck and parades him across India, I will reward him Rs. 20 lakh.”
Saying that it was the only way to teach the Pakistanis a lesson for their anti-Islamic and anti-humane policies, Qadri further added –
“Terrorism is not relegated to any religion first thing. Second, if it is related, then the Pakistan Government will have to show where it is written in the Quran, where it is written in Hadeez. They have to prove that because rituals like Namaz, Roza etc. all are related to the Quran, but terrorism is not written in the Quran. So, therefore I condemn it.”
Interestingly, Maulvi Qadri is the same person who had issued a fatwa against Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam on the Azaan row. He had also offered Rs. 10 lakh to the one who would tonsure Nigam’s head.
