‘Criminals under Sharia’: Barelvi Ulema’s fatwa against Udaipur tailor’s killers
The Barelvi Ulema has taken a strong stand against the murder of tailor Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur for supporting Nupur Sharma, for the suspended BJP spokesperson's remarks on Prophet. The Barelvi sect from Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly issued a fatwa against the killers of Kanhaiya Lal. In the fatwa, the Muslim body ruled both of them criminals in the Sharia court. The fatwa cited the teachings of 19th-century Islamic scholar Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi, commonly known as Aala Hazrat. Maulana Shahabuddin Razvi, national secretary-general of Barelvi Ulema, said, "The slogans calling for beheading of those who insult the Prophet were first given by Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan, a far-right Islalmic extremist political party in the neighbouring country, to fulfill their political ambition."
