After clerics fatwa now Hindus in Varanasi protest over AK-49 caps
AAP leaders treat Cleric fatwa and protest of Hindu priests against AK-49 cap a golden chance to remain in media. For AK-49 these fatwa and protests are weapon to fight against BJP PM Candidate in Lok Sabha election. This is one crisis AK-49 Arvind Kejriwal will find difficult to handle.
After Muslim cleric fatwa against AAP cap now it is now the Hindu priests who have termed the AAP cap “anti-Hindu”. The AAP cap carries a photo of a broom — the party symbol — and this seems to have irked Hindu priests. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) cap with the image of a broom has raised the hackles of a section of Muslim clerics, who have issued a fatwa against it.
AK-49 is happy to receive fatwa on caps with his paty’s smbol broom. AK-49 Kejriwal’s party AAP wants to remain in media even for its wrong doings. AAP office-bearers from Uttar Pradesh claimed that the issuance of fatwas against the party proved its growing popularity. "Fatwas are generally issued when something is popular and threatens the interests of some political groups. I hope these fatwas help us garner more public support," said Vaibhav Maheshwari, an AAP leader.
Asian Age reported Acharya Aditya Krishna of Varanasi says, “In Hindu mythology, the head is the most sacred part of the body and the broom is associated with garbage and, therefore, cannot be put on the head. In Varanasi, most of the Hindu men wear ‘tripundi’ (a three-line horizontal mark on the shivling) on their foreheads and wearing an AAP cap with a broom over it is sacrilege.”
Another priest in the Kashi Vishwanath temple, Acharya Girijesh Tiwari, said that they were planning to ban the entry of AAP caps in the temple.
“If they have to don the party symbol ‘broom’, they can wear it on T-shirts and on badges. Putting a broom on one’s head, as it is, is considered ‘unclean’ and inauspicious,” he said.
Another priest in the same temple said that when Mr Arvind Kejriwal came to offer prayers at the temple, he came without the cap but his supporters in the holy city insist on wearing it all the time. Mr Kejriwal has also irked the devotees in Varanasi when he addressed a rally earlier this week wearing a “tripundi” and then went on to wear a skull cap that is usually worn by Muslims.
“This goes to prove that Kejriwal is no better than other politician when it comes to promoting religious sentiments for the sake of votes. He should learn to respect every religion and not mix them up for electoral gains. Kejriwal is yet to understand the sensitivity level of people in Varanasi on such issues,” said Dr Ayodhya Prasad Misra, a retired BHU professor. Significantly, some time ago, Muslim clerics had issued a fatwa against the AAP cap and asked members not to wear the same. The mufti board secretary, Maulana Haseen Ahmad Habib, said: “After much discussion, it has been decided the AAP cap is anti-Islamic and Muslims must not wear it.”
M ufti Mohammed Ayub of Jamia Naeemia seminary in Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh has issued a fatwa against wearing the Aam Aadmi Party cap for it carries the image of the broom, the party's symbol. Ayub is second to issue the edict after the Imam of Varanasi's Jama Masjid.
Many of AAP's Muslim supporters in districts such as Moradabad, Bareilly, Rampur, Sambhal and Bijnor have stopped wearing the cap. Mufti Ayub, who belongs to the Barelvi school of thought, which enjoys a large following in these districts, said in his decree that the broom was used for purposes of cleaning and therefore its image could not be used on the cap, which is worn on one's head. "People should not enter mosques wearing caps that feature the image of the broom," he said.
"A broom is used for cleaning garbage. So, sporting its image on the head is anti-Islamic. In Islam, we bow our head only before the Almighty. We cannot allow Muslims to wear such a cap," Hindustan Times quoted Mufti board secretary Maulana Haseen Ahmad Habibi as saying.
Habibi added Kejriwal can use the image of broom anywhere, but not on head. We call upon Muslims to avoid the caps with the image of a broom.
