Remove Najma from ICCR: Firoz Bakht

The Milli Gazette Online

New Delhi: Chairman of Maulana Azad Taleemi Tajeem, Firoz Ahmad Bakht has made allegations of forgery against BJP member of Rajya Sabha, Najma Heptullah. According to Bakht, he is the grandson of Maulana Azad’s elder brother Maulana Ghulam Yasin. While Heptullah has been befooling the country for the last 30 years by claiming herself to be a relative of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. Bakht has demanded the government to dislodge her from the post of president of Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) and to investigate if her Doctorate degree is authentic.

She has been at the centre of a controversy after the publication of the ICCR book The Journey of a Legend. On the cover of the book there is a ‘morphed’ photo of Heptullah with Maulana Azad. 

Congress Party made a hue and cry over the issue. The party said on April 11 that the "manipulation" of Heptullah’s photograph with Maulana Azad is " national disgrace and criminal offence" and demanded a probe into the incident. The party’s spokesman Anand Sharma said, "The photograph was morphed. It’s a disgrace and criminal offence... it’s abuse of office and distortion of history... If any shame is left Najma should quit as chairperson of ICCR and Rajya Sabha." He added that she was unfit to represent India on international forums and demanded her resignation from the presidentship of the Inter Parliamentary Union.
