  • | Thursday | 3rd June, 2021

LUCKNOW: Samajwadi Party’s Moradabad MP ST Hasan kicked up a row on Wednesday when he described the devastation caused by recent cyclones and the pandemic as a result of aasmani aafat (divine intervention) against injustice being meted out to Muslims in the form of Citizen’s Amendment Act (CAA) and similar interferences with the Sharia. Reacting to SP MP’s statement, UP’s junior minister for minority welfare, Muslim waqf and Haj, Mohsin Raza described Hasan’s approach as similar to that of the ISIS.

LUCKNOW: Samajwadi Party’s Moradabad MP ST Hasan kicked up a row on Wednesday when he described the devastation caused by recent cyclones and the pandemic as a result of aasmani aafat (divine intervention) against injustice being meted out to Muslims in the form of Citizen’s Amendment Act (CAA) and similar interferences with the Sharia. Reacting to SP MP’s statement, UP’s junior minister for minority welfare, Muslim waqf and Haj, Mohsin Raza described Hasan’s approach as similar to that of the ISIS.

“…. dunya ke sabse bade loktantra mein particularly ek community ko keh diya gaya ki unko nagrikta nahi milegi … yani ke Musalaman ko nagrikta nahi milegi baaqi sabko mil jayegi … ye to nainsafiyan hui hain … uske ewaz mein aapne dekha ki humare desh ke idhar asmani aafatein kitni aa rahi hain … dus dus din mein do do toofan aa gaye … humne dekha hai ki corona ke andar gareeb admi ka kya hashar hua hai (In the world’s largest democracy, it has been announced that only one particularly community … that is Muslims will not get citizenship and everyone else will. Such injustice has resulted in devastation that has descended from the skies in the form of cyclones and poor people have died in pandemic),” Hasan, who happens to be an MBBS by qualification, said.

Lambasting the SP MP for his comments, minister Mohsin Raza said: “It is more than clear from his statements that people like him don’t have faith in the Constitution of the country. They want Samajwadi Party to form the government and introduce Sharia law thereafter. Their language is identical to ISIS. Such people only believe in Sharia law,” Mohsin said. “The problem of ST Hasan and Samajwadi Party leaders is that Holi is being celebrated in a big way in Barsana, for them CAA being introduced is injustice and so is abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir,” Raza said.

Hasan further attacked the BJP government for what is described as a ‘total failure’ to provide the people of the state with an opportunity to perform the last rites of those who died of Covid-19 infection in the recent past. “Has anyone ever seen dead bodies of human beings being abandoned and dogs feeding on them. Where else in the world are bodies thrown in rivers instead of being cremated? Cremation grounds facing shortage of wood for funeral pyres? What kind of government do we have?” Hasan asked.

On drawing a link between government decisions and natural calamities, Hasan said: “We Indians are a very religious lot and strongly believe that some supernatural being exists which controls the world and imparts justice.” The SP MP courted controversy in October 2019, when he compared Parliament to a religious congregation stating that the environment inside resembled that around a religious group.
