FIR Registered Against Tarek Fatah in Deoband

So far the notorious Islamophobe has aired on Zee TV nine episodes of his hateful anti-Muslim programme “Fatah ka Fatwa” in which the he has blasphemed against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his companions and has passed extremely objectionable comments on Muslim kings and rulers that may have far reaching and disastrous impact on the social fabric of Indian society.

This should be noted that hundreds of Muslim women in this historic town had taken to street to protest against Zee TV, its programme and its host. This was followed by another demonstration by a men’s demonstration.

Talking to reports young activist Mehdi Hasan Aini said, “On Friday  hundreds of residents, led by young students of Deoband, called upon the SHO Chaman Singh Chavda and briefd him about the contents of Tarek Fatah’s lies in which he has blasphemed against Islam and its Prophet, has called Darul Uloom Deoband and other Islamic seminaries as dens of terrorists and has distorted history in such a manner and with such comments that one should be in no doubt about the anti-Muslim hatred his programme may spread.”

He added, “He has been spewing venom against Islamic practices like Hijab and creating misunderstandings against Islamic family laws.”

Aini said that a copy of the report has also been sent to the Superintendent of Police Saharanpur and a case has been registered against Tarek Fatah under section 153A and 259A of Indian Penal Code.

Maulana Nazeef Ahmad Qasmi Azhari, incharge of Darul Uloom Niswan said, “We have full confidence in the judiciary and administration of our country and we are sure that the sentiments of the largest minority of the country would be appreciated and action would be taken against Tarek Fatah.

This should be remembered that an PIL has already been filed in Delhi High Court against Zee TV’s programme as a result of which the Court has sought an explanation from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

The campaign against Tarek Fatah was initiated by a young Islamic scholar Yasir Nadeemul Wajidi who had challenged Tarek Fatah for an open debate. This was followed by a twitter war against the Islamophobe and in the previous trending 95,000 tweets were posted.
