“No one can touch anyone who’s with Shiv Sena, MNS, because they have lot of members… hence you should join Allah Ke Banday”, says TV actor Ajaz Khan, who is best known for making the threatening-ish video against singer Sonu Nigam after his ‘controversial’ tweet about azaan.
According to his Facebook page, what started out ‘NGO‘ named “Allah Ke Banday” has now metamorphosed into a political outfit through which he claims to reach out to Muslims to unite for the betterment of Muslim community. He has started collecting ‘membership fees’ of Rs. 1,200 for the year, on payment of which the member’s problems will be the organisation’s problems. The NGO page also posts ‘testimonials’ of the ‘poor people’ Khan has helped through collecting funds from people online. The ‘testimonials’ clarify most of the times that the ‘NGO’ offers help to all, irrespective of religion.
However, on closer inspection, one see Ajaz Khan’s page promotes more hate speeches and tries to create communal tension.
This video posted by Khan has a Muslim religious leader saying that the truth about government is not reaching to people because all “twenty seven 24 hour news channels are owned by Reliance” and “things are in place where they (government) is waiting till 2019 elections, following which India will be constitutionally be declared a Hindu nation. Teaching Qurans, running Madrasas and Mosques freely will be difficult. Not trying to scare you, but Muslims should unite.”
While posting this video, Khan says “Hindu rashtra declare kiya jaye ga 2019 election ke bad for sure Yaro ALLAH Ke Banday ko bada karna Hai jyda se jyda log ismai judo isko bada bana na Hai” [After 2019 election, (India) will be declared a Hindu Rashtra for sure. Friends, please join Allah Ke Banday to make it as big as we could.]
Sharing a video on Prime Minister Modi on Godhra riots, Khan posts “Chup Rahegi Zubane Khanjar To Lahoo Pugarega Aasteen ka . Ye Hai Sacchayi Narendra Modi ki Yaro dekho aur share karo inko Bhul mat Jana”
While being critical of the government is absolutely fair in a democracy like India, sharing hate speeches and inciting people to take law into their own hands is highly irresponsible behaviour, even if it is an out-of-work actor.
