Our food, dress, customs are different, those who do not like them should leave India: Jamiat chief at Deoband conference

New Delhi:

Today is the second and last day of Jamiat-e-Ulema’s conference in Deoband, Uttar Pradesh. In this conference today, important resolutions were passed on many issues including the Uniform Civil Code (UCC). 

Maulana Mahmood Madani of Jamiat President asked the people present in the procession to be patient. Referring to an anecdote, he said, “In 2014, the CBI filed a case against me. I fought the case for more than 5 years. That’s why I am telling you who is patient.”

Addressing the conference, Maulana Mahmood Madani said, “this country is ours and we will save it. If someone does not like our religion, then they should go somewhere else. We had got a chance to go to Pakistan. But we didn’t go.”

“We don’t scare you, you work to intimidate. We are not non-existent, we belong to this country, this is our country. We will fulfill our responsibility for our country. Our tastes, ways of eating and drinking are different. Our way of dressing is different.”

The Jamiat president further said that there can be a compromise on everything but there cannot be a compromise on ideology. Madani said that interference in Shariat would not be tolerated. 

“Today there is a question of our existence. Muslims are already used to suffering atrocities. We have to save the country first. That is why we are talking about the country first, but even this is causing pain in the stomach of many people,” Maulana Madani added.
