Muslims who are against building Ram temple in Ayodhya must go to Pakistan and Bangladesh, said Uttar Pradesh Shia Waqf Board Chairman Waseem Rizvi.
As reported by the Hindu, Rizvi offered Friday prayers at the disputed site in Ayodhya and also met the chief priest of the Ram Janambhoomi, Acharya Satyendra Das. The daily has quoted Rizvi as saying “Those who are opposing the Ram temple in Ayodhya and want to build the Babri Mosque there… People having such fundamentalist mentality should go to Pakistan and Bangladesh. Such Muslims do not have any place in India.”
As reported by TOI, Rizvi said “Ayodhya is a sacred place for Hindus, so Masjid should not be built in Ayodhya. Those who want a masjid there should go and join forces of ISIS chief Abu Baqar Baghdadi.”
Declaring Zakir Naik as fundamentalists he asked him to join ISIS in Syria. Taking a dig at Muslim clerics, Rizvi alleged that fundamentalist Muslim clerics are trying to destroy the country and they must migrate to Pakistan and Afghanistan. Clerics have demanded his arrest on his controversial statement.
The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute from February 8.
