The Supreme Court on Monday (April 12, 2021) dismissed the petition removing 26 verses from the Quran. It was alleged in this petition that all these 26 verses violate the law of India and promote extremism.
A bench of Supreme Court judges Rohinton Fali Nariman, BR Gavai and Hrishikesh Roy were heard on the petition of Syed Wasim Rizvi.
The Quran that promotes murder, hatred and bigotry
The reasoning behind the petition filed by Wasim Rizvi in the Supreme Court was that some of these 26 verses of the Quran are promoting terrorism, which were later incorporated. He says that when Allahtala has spoken of brotherhood, love, openness, justice, equality, forgiveness, tolerance throughout the Quran Pak, then how can you say things like slaughter and guilt, hate and bigotry in these 26 verses.
Rizvi was described as an agent of extremist and anti-Muslim organizations against the petition against the Quran in the Supreme Court. Hasanain Jaffrey Dumpy, the national president of the Shiane Haider-e-Karrar Welfare Association, has announced a reward of Rs 20,000 for the person who beheaded Wasim Rizvi.
The family also broke ties
Former Shia Waqf Board chairman Wasim Rizvi, who filed a petition in the Supreme Court to remove 26 verses of the Quran as ‘violent’, was costly. The Hayatim tomb of Wasim Rizvi built in Karbala in Talkatora was razed. His younger brother has said that the family has nothing to do with Wasim.
