Maulana Imam Barkati has been sacked by the Wakf committee for making anti-national remarks. According to the Wakf board Maulana Barkati made speeches to incite violence and physically abused a co-trustee. The Maulana is considered to be very close to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who considers Barkati as her rakhee brother.

Barkati has always been in the news for all the wrong reasons. He offered prayers for the world’s most dreaded terrorist Osama bin laden. After the historic decision of demonetisation was taken last year, Barkati issued a fatwa against the Prime Minister. He is often seen abusing co-panelists on TV debates.

Barkati is believed to be a hardcore fanatic. He had recently said that he would continue with the red beacon as it had nothing to do with India. He attributed the Lal Batti culture to the British and said that he would continue with the red beacon. Mamata Banerjee has given Barkati a free hand in West Bengal.

He recently made controversial remarks about the RSS & the BJP. He even went on to threaten the RSS and said that any member from the RSS or the BJP who dared to enter the state would be beaten badly. Barkati wanted the BJP to keep away from the RSS.
