At the outset, I am not a AIMIM protagonist, neither do I represent @asadowaisi’s political view. However, in the recent spark where @asadowaisi made a remark that everyone born is Muslim and later the school of belief changes according to circumstances, it is just a perception in Islam as per the testament i.e. Qur’an. There is a fundamental difference in what #RSS’s Mohanbhagawat and comrades like Mr. Subramanian Swamy @Swamy39 have been gushing; they enforce Hinduism on everyone out there, which is an offence not a perception. Mr. Owaisi @asadowaisi himself categorically mentioned that compulsion isn’t there in Islam. In fact, Islam is against compulsion to enforce/accept faith.http://quran.com/2/256 Therefore, don’t generalize and even compare Mr. Owaisi’s statement and Mohan Bhagvat’s statement. What’s @Swamy39 and comrades have been advocating? To throw Muslims to Pakistan in case they don’t accept Hindutwa principle, Mr. Owaisi not only asked for coercion, but also categorically mentioned that there is no enforcement and it’s one’s free will and so on.!!
In Soorah Al-A’raaf, Verses 172-173; ( http://quran.com/7/172-173 )Allah explained that when He created Adam, He caused all of Adam’s descendants to come into existence and took a pledge from them saying, Am I not your Lord? To which they all replied, ” Yes, we testify to It:’
Allah then explained why He had all of mankind bear witness that He is their creator and only true God worthy of worship. He said, “That was In case you (mankind) should say on the day of Resurrection, “Verily we were unaware of all this.” That is to say, we had no idea that You Allah, were our God. No one told us that we were only supposed to worship You alone. Allah went on to explain That it was also In case you should say, “Certainly It was our ancestors who made partners (With Allah) and we are only their descendants; will You then destroy us for what those liars did?” Thus, every child is born with a natural belief in Allah and an inborn inclination to worship Him alone called in Arabic the “Fitrah”.
If the child were left alone, he would worship Allah in his own way, but all children are affected by those things around them, seen or unseen.
The Prophet (PBUH) reported that Allah said, “I created my servants in the right religion but devils made them go astray”. The Prophet (PBUH) also said, “Each child is born in a state of “Fitrah”, then his parents make him a Jew, Christian or a Zoroastrian, the way an animal gives birth to a normal offspring. Have you noticed any that were born mutilated?” (Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim).
I don’t understand why people have hiccups to what’s perceived as per Islamic belief that every new born is Muslim which doesn’t harm anyone nor deemed to target anyone at all. It’s just a perception and anyone is entitled to have their perception.
We relegate on a sentence that too twisted besides of what Asaduddin Owaisi spoke for 90 minutes reportedly. He said ‘everyone’, but media twisted it to be ‘every Indian’ on the headline whereas the essay says otherwise. Even NDTV did their best to twist the headline to get more mileage.
Nonetheless, I feel Mr. Owaisi, considering his brilliance and intellect, having known the way media works, at least some sections in there, it could have been avoided considering the given circumstances in India. However, I reiterate that whatever he spoke then was fully coherent and warranted, no agitation as it nowhere misled at anyone.
Ms. Suchitra Vijayan wrote a very beautifully poised piece in The Hindu today. “Islamic difference and radicalization’. Although the article isn’t directly related to this subject, however, it’s connected in many ways or the other. http://www.thehindu.com/…/comment-articl…/article6760854.ece
There are pseudo academicians who just make passing remarks like Wahabi radicalism and so on. It’s so surprising if at all anything exist like one. None of these people who allege such remarks substantiate their claim categorically. Mohammed Abdul Wahab was an Islamic scholar who reformed a very perverted society along with Al Saud family who established The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
