I follow my own faith and I can never tolerate if anyone makes derogatory comments on it. But I even assure you that if I had to chose between my religion and my nation, I would chose my nation and follow the constitution of my nation.
But now a controversial statement has been given out by the Minister Siddiqullah Chowdhury of Mamata Banerjee’s cabinet in West Bengal who said “Quran will prevail and not the law or Constitution”.
This condemnable statement was given by him on 20th September after the Modi government banned the practice of Triple Talaq and ensured justice to lakhs of Muslim women.
Siddiqullah Chowdhury, who is also the state president of the Jamiat-e-Islami Hind, said “For us, our holy scripture, the Quran Sharif, is supreme and if any constitutional provision or any law contradicts the Quran, then our scripture will prevail and not the law or Constitution… BJP is playing the religion card and is playing with Constitution. The ordinance will have no effect on Muslims. No one will adhere to it, but will follow the religion and the holy book”.
He added “Whatever tricks BJP may play, they will not be able to influence Hindus or Muslims. In 2019, they are on their way out. The ordinance is just a way of winning Hindu votes, which they will not succeed. Hindus and Muslims will throw them out of power”.
He makes a bizarre argument saying the ordinance is a tactic of winning Hindu votes. But let me ask this lunatic minister who abused our Indian constitution, how the ordinance is even related to Hindus? The ordinance is related only and only to Muslim women.
He further continued his foolish remark saying “Every day, women and girls are being raped. Every day, women are being burnt and brutalised. What are they (BJP government at the Centre) doing? They are doing nothing about it. But for cheap vote bank politics, (they are) hurting the sentiments of Muslims”.
In the above statement he says that says that women should be protected but at other end, he condemned the scrapping of triple talaq. Due to ministers like Siddiqullah Chowdhury the law breakers are getting increased in India.
Sadly, these are neither arrested nor condemned.
