|MUZAFFARNAGAR: Four days after Ramdev demonstrated ‘pranayam’ and a Hindu priest recited Vedic hymns at a meet of Muslim clerics at Deoband, Islamic seminary Darul Uloom issued a directive asking Muslims to avoid a camp run by the yoga guru as it begins with the singing of ‘Vande Mataram’.“Singing of Vande Mataram is a prayer and against Islamic law as Muslims cannot offer prayers to anyone except Allah. Muslims should not sing Vande Mataram,” said Mufti Ehsan Kazmi, deputy-in-charge of Darul Uloom’s fatwa department.He, however, said yoga can be practised as an exercise.
Another cleric Mufti Ehsan also said Muslims should refrain from singing ‘Vande Mataram’ during the yoga camp.
Darul Uloom had issued an edict which opposed any prayer involving ‘Vande Mataram’ and it was supported by top Muslim body Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind at its 30th general assembly at Deoband.
More than two lakh clerics and students watched Ramdev’s demonstration.
Incidentally, the 143-year-old influential seminary Darool had in the past issued a fatwa in favour of yoga after some clerics banned Muslims from practicing it.
It may be noted here that some Muslim Organisations had issued a fatwa against Yoga in Malaysia with the full support of Islamic State Authority there.
But the sadhu community in Ayodhya is up in arms against him for attending the meet and “remaining silent” on the “fatwa” against Vande Mataram.
The issue will be raised at the forthcoming meeting of the All India Akhara Parishad, an apex body of sadhus, at Hardwar on November 10. “Baba Ram Dev has become a businessman… if he claims to be an Indian, he should have opposed the fatwa against Vande Mataram,” Akhara president Mahant Gyan Das told Deccan Herald from Ayodhya on Thursday.
“Ram Dev’s commercial interests are becoming a hurdle in the way of his patriotism,” Han Das said. “By attending the meet where the fatwa against Vande Mataram was issued, Ram Dev has hurt the sentiments of crores of Indians, and he must seek forgiveness,” Mahant Narayan Giri said.
Meanwhile, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board member and naib imam of Idgah, Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangimahali, said here that no “fatwa” had been issued against Vande Mataram at the Deoband meet.
So far our knowledge is concerned Mahamandaleshwar Hans Dasji and Mahant Narayan Giriji are in the closest circles of Ramdevji . In various movements and functions including Patanjali Yogpeeth Ramdevji’s HQ) in Hardwar these saints shared the same dais for achieving the goal of National Interest or for protecting Indian Heritage and culture. We the common people inspired a lot getting a thrust of Unity amongst the Indian Monks and Saints.
But a permissive Ramdevji ( No Omkar in the Yog Session of Muslims) or a reluctant Ramdevji ( No protest against the anti Bande Mataram fatwa) irritated the veteran saints in India, which is harmful to the Unity of Bharatiya Sadhu Samaj (Indian Saints circles) and for the Image of an Un-compromising Ramdev too.
The thousands and crores of Pro Hindu Indians who respect Ramdevji as their GURU, are also in a resentment for which the future planning of Baba Ramdev may be hampered a lot.
Ramdevji should clarify his views very clearly for both the “Yoga without OMkar” and “No Bande Mataram for Muslims” in India.
