Actor who says he will choose ‘Quran over Constitution’, gets support from AAP, Hardik Patel and Pakistan

Little known TV actor Ajaz Khan, who is best known for making the threatening-ish video against singer Sonu Nigam after his ‘controversial’ tweet about azaan, is back in news, this time for saying that he will choose Quran over Indian Constitution ‘any day any time’.

He was responding to a Twitter user who was critical of Khan for referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was on a maiden visit to India, as a murderer.

Soon enough support poured in from Pakistan and #IStandWithAjazKhan was also trending on Twitter (as per Ajaz’s claim on his Twitter page). It is also noteworthy how Ajaz gleefully retweeted the tweets from Pakistan supporting his stand of choosing the Quran over the Constitution, thereby undermining the sovereignty of India for religion:

Aam Aadmi Party’s Ved Prakash, also came out in support of Ajaz:

Congress’ recent ally Hardik Patel too supported him:

Interestingly, Jignesh Mevani, an aide of Hardik Patel, had recently asked BJP leaders to choose between Manu Smriti or Constitution, but appears that the new ‘youth leaders’ have no problem supporting someone who openly says he chooses Quran over constitution.

It is thus surprising that the very elements who resort to citing the constitution when things don’t go as they please, are today endorsing views that undermine not just the “secular ethos” that they like to tom tom, but also the same constitution they swear by to justify their skewed version of secularism.

Ajaz, whose extremist views are not new, and who today finds unbridled support from the “torch bearers of secularism and constitutional supremacy”, had earlier too taken to social media to ask for ‘donations’ for his ‘political party’ which started out as an NGO ‘Allah Ke Bandey’.

He is also of the opinion India will be declared a ‘Hindu Rashtra’ after 2019 elections and hence more and more Muslims should join Allah Ke Bandey. 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”. In an earlier video, which is now deleted, Ajaz Khan referred to Modi as Hitler after the BHU incident.

Ajaz who had spoken against Modi and fear mongered about India turning into “Hindu Rasthra” after 2019, is today endorsing Islamic identity over the constitution of India. One wonders then, whether such elements are not really opposed to religious supremacy, but religious supremacy of a religion they dont practice themselves.
