|Ajmer Dargah’s Diwan angry with BJP
Jaipur: Syed Zainul Abideen, Diwan of the dargarh in Ajmer, who had earlier caused a stir among Muslims and political parties by participating in deputy prime minister LK Advani’s ‘Bharat Uday Yatra’, is now angry with the BJP because it is using his name and position and issuing advertisements in newspapers without his consent so much so that he has now sent a legal notice to BJP’s state president, Lalit Kishore Chaturvedi, and owner of an advertisement agency, Atul Jain.
While talking to Hindustan, Abideen said that he never supported BJP nor issued any appeal in its favour. As regards his participation in ‘Bharat Uday Yatra’ he said that he was free to participate in any function or programme of any political party but it did not mean that he supported that party also.
