Muhammad Saeed Noori of Raza Academy Mumbai,a representative body of Majority Sufi Sunnis said ,”The Purinitical and Extremist approach of these terrorists and bunch of dacoits has caused a great divide among the Muslim Community .Today if Pakistan is unstable it is only due to these extremist Talibanis who are helping the Imperialist forces to get stable in the region.”
Syed Muhammad Qaudri National President of Muslim Students organization of India(MSO) told Data darbar is revered by Millions of followers throughout South Asia and by attacking it Suicide Bombers of Taliban have shown their real intentions that tolerant and Peaceful Majority Sufi community is their real target and not US and Israel. Regular and Constant attacks on the Shrines of great and revered Sufi Saints in Pakistan and Afghanistan have unmasked the dirty face of Talibani Jehad which is actually against Muslims and Islam.This is not Jehad but ‘ Fasad ‘.
Advocate Mudassir Naqshbandi of Idara Tehqiqat-e-Imam Ahmed Raza Kashmir said that by destroying the Shrines of Sufis ,these enemies of Islam cant snatch the love and respect from Our hearts towards these Holy Persons rather we will be more Inclined to Sufism after every attack.These Cowards bombers dont have the guts to fight with the Zionist forces so they are targetting non violent Sufi folloers.These forces are Playing in the hand of zionist forces by Creating rift and schism in the Community.
Maulana Basharat Qaudri Saqaufi ,reputed Scholar from Sunni Markaz kerala and Vice President of MSO of India said that It is a fight between Love and hate and between Peace and Violence . The brand of Islam these hate compaigners Propagates is based on narrow Interpretation of Quran which leads and allows them to kill and Clean what they think is wrong .
Shujat Ali Qaudri Asstt Gen secretary of MSO We are sure that History will repeate itself and Love will conquer Violence and the broad message of Sufism based on the life of prophet of Islam will prevail ultimately.
