A section of Muslims are responsible for bringing a bad name to the community and creating the “Islam’s image of terror”, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind general secretary Maulana Mehmood Madani today said and called for spreading education in the community to change this.
“If Muslims for the next 20 years decide their agenda for education and pledge to educate their children even if they have to go without a meal, then those who hate Muslims will be forced to change their opinion,” he said.
Addressing a function in Kirtanpur here, he said that a section of people from the community have spoiled its image.
“We are not following the right path. It is not the enemies but a section from within the community which is responsible for creating this image of terror,” the secretary said.
Madani further said that Muslims are patriots because at the time of partition they opted to stay in India despite having a choice.
Muslims are not outsiders in the country and they have an equal stake here, he said.
“Hence, it is their responsibility to ensure that the country neither breaks or gets divided,” Madni said.
