Maulana Waheedudin Khan denies report

The Hindi daily Hindustan in its 3 October issue published an interview with Maulana Waheeduddin Khan which was conducted by Sushil Sharma. According to the interviewer, the Maulana allegedly said that alongwith SIMI, Jamaat-e Islami Hindi (JIH) should also be banned because both SIMI and JIH share basically the same ideology, with the only difference that JIH people are old who spread hatred through speeches and SIMI being a youth organisation, spreads fanaticism and hatred through violence and subversive activities and that both SIMI and JIH have defamed Islam throughout the world because of their lack of proper understanding.

Referring to this interview, the JIH assistant secretary general, Mr Ejaz Aslam sought a confirmation from Maulana Saheb about the veracity of what is reported in the said interview. Maulana Aslam enquired in his letter if Maulana Waheeduddin said the following: (1) JIH is an extremist religious outfit; (2) JIH should be banned, (3) JIH leaders spread communal lunacy in the country through their speeches, (4) JIH leaders out of their ignorance defame Islam.

The learned Maulana, in reply to JIH's letter replied as follows according to a communication received by MG from JIH:

‘Respected Maulana Ejaz Ahmad Aslam Saheb, Assalamu ‘Alaikum.
‘Thank you for your fax message of 4 October 2001.
‘I would like to point out that the views attributed to me in the interview published in the Hindi daily Hindustan (3 October 2001) are not true to facts. I come across such things frequently. In this connection I wish to point out that news correspondents generally do not report anybody's statements correctly. Therefore, any body's views can be correctly understood through his own articles, not by newspaper's interviews.
‘As regards your queries about four points attributed to me, I assure you that I have not said any such thing. The four things attributed to me are not correct. Those who read my articles and writings can very well understand that this is not at all my language. Moreover, common sense is sufficient to understand this untruth. For example, the paper in question has attributed the opinion to me that Jamaat-e Islami-e-Hind should be banned whereas in the same interview he has mentioned that I am against any kind of ban on any party and that I consider any kind of ban as useless. In such a case how can anyone say two contradictory things?
‘‘It is true that during the course of the interview I did say that the ideology of SIMI and Jamaat-e Islami is basically the same because according to my knowledge the fundamental thinking of both is based on Maulana Abul A’la Maudoodi's literature though Jamaat-e Islami people have practically become moderates in accordance with the changed circumstances. But in SIMI all are young men and hence they are still following the path of extremism.
