Ajmer Dargah cleric Sarwar Chishti’s son makes objectionable remarks against Hindu gods

New Delhi – Days after Sayed Sarwar Chishti, the Khadim of the Ajmer Sharif Dargah, kicked up a row with his provocative remarks, his son Sayed Aadil Chishti made highly objectionable and derogatory statements against Hindu Deities.

In a video clip, Aadil Chishti can be heard making offensive comments against Hindu Deities. His statement comes against the backdrop of Nupur Sharma’s remarks on Prophet Mohammad that had led to widespread violent protests across the country and also drew condemnation from some Gulf countries.

Sarwar Chishti, Secretary of Anjuman Committee, had warned of a movement that would ‘shake India’. He had said if Prophet Mohammad is insulted then the Muslims will begin a movement that would jolt India.

Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) took strong objection to the remarks and demanded that the Rajasthan Government arrest him immediately. “The whole world is aware about the poisonous words of Ajmer Dargah’s Anjuman Committee’s Secretary Sarwar Chishti and his nephew. Have people forgotten what civilization is all about ? I demand from the Rajasthan Government that if you are really serious about the security of Hindus, action should be taken against all these Chishtis of Ajmer Sharif, and Aadil should be jailed along with his father Sarwar”, said the VHP leader Surendra Jain.

Last month, Sarwar Chishti’s nephew Gauhar Chishti, had made provocative statements against Nupur Sharma and raised ‘Sarr tan se juda’ slogan outside Ajmer Sharif Dargah. In the recent past, many other clerics have made hate speeches against Nupur Sharma over her remarks. In the last week of June, Kanhaiya Lal, a tailor in Rajasthan’s Udaipur, was hacked to death by two Muslim men for allegedly supporting Nupur Sharma on social media.

A chemist in Maharashtra’s Amravati was also stabbed to death for allegedly sharing a post on a social messaging platform in support of Sharma, a week before the Udaipur murder. Both the killings triggered tension and fear among people.

Editorial Viewpoint

Will any Court in India take suo moto cognizance of such hate speeches against the Hindus in their own country ? We can expect this to change only in the ‘Hindu Rashtra’.
