Shia Waqf Board chief Waseem Rizvi expelled from Islam for claiming that homosexuality is prevalent in Madarsas

Islamic clerics have announced the expulsion of UP Shia Waqf Board Chairman Waseem Rizvi for allegedly making objectionable statements against Islam in the past. According to the reports, Waseem Rizvi is accused of saying that homosexuality is prevalent Madrasas across the country.

The Muslim clerics reportedly held a meeting in the Noori Mosque of Agra on September 8th and Mufti Mudassar Ali Qadri approved the proposal to remove Waseem Rizvi from Islam. The clerics defended the decision by claiming that Rizvi statements against Islam will be a danger to the country’s peace and harmony.

The clerics also accused the Shia leader of having a connection with ‘anti-national elements’ in the past. Mufti Mudassar Ali Qadri also demanded a CBI inquiry against Rizvi to investigate this matter. He further said that after Muharram, both Shias and Sunnis will hold protests against Waseem Rizvi.

Reportedly, Shia cleric Maulana Kalbe Jawwad has met UP CM Yogi Adityanath and has requested him to take action against Rizvi for his statement. The cleric also warned CM Yogi that his government will be responsible if any communal riots occur as a reason of Rizvi’s statements.

Jamit-ul-Quresh President Mohd Shareef Kale reportedly accused Rizvi of previously equating Indian Muslims as terrorists by claiming that the Pakistani is recruiting Indian Muslims with the help of  Indian Muslim clerics who were spreading falsehood in the name of Islam. He said that Rizvi even called the fatwa given by the global leader of Shia community Ayatullah Agha Shistani as wrong.

Sami Aghai, the chairman of Bharatiya Muslim Vikas Parishad reportedly said that Rizvi is making these statements to get publicity and added that he should not be given importance as he does not belong to the Muslim community anymore.

Waseem Rizvi has been always controversial among Islamic clerics. He had openly declared his support for the Ram temple in Ayodhya and had said that Muslims who are opposed to Ram Mandir should go to Pakistan. He had also written to AIMPLB president asking them to return all the Masjids which were built on destroyed temples, back to the Hindus.
