Kashmir based Islamic scholars have sharply reacted to the reports that Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Srinagar has sought permission from district magistrate to hold a “Peace Symposium at SKICC”, on October 10 and cautioned the government not to allow any such event to be held. Noted Islamic scholar Mufti Nazir Ahmed Qasmi on Sunday said holding of such an event would be intolerable. “This should not happen at all. Mirzai people are expunged from Islam. They are not Muslims,” Mufti Nazir said. He said allowing such people to hold the function would give Ahamdiyas a platform to lure convert Muslims to their religion. “They should not be given any such chance to meet their nefarious designs,” he said adding any such attempt would have far reaching consequences. Moulana Syed Arshad Hussain Nadvi in his message the holy city of Makkah said the plan to host the Ahmadiya conference in Srinagar was nothing but Fitna, which aims are creating chaos among Muslims. “They are deceiving the people. How dare they use name of Islam when courts world over have declared them non-Muslims,” Moulana Nadvi said. “They are using Muslim names in disguise. This is hypocrisy. And this Fitna seems to be aiming at making the Muslims fight each other,” Moulana Nadvi cautioned. He asked the government not to allow any such anti-Islamic event be held.
