SQR Ilyas, who announced AIMPLB’s decision to file review petition in Ayodhya case, used to be a member of terror org SIMI

Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas is a former member of the Islamic Terrorist organization, SIMI. He had left it in 1985

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has decided to file a review petition against the Ayodhya verdict. The unanimous judgment of the Supreme Court had paved the way for a Bhavya Ram Mandir at Ram Janmabhoomi while awarding the Muslim community an alternate piece of land for a Masjid. Interestingly, Umar Khalid’s father was present during the press briefing where the decision was announced.

Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas was the one who announced the decision on behalf of the AIMPLB.


Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas is a former member of the Islamic Terrorist organization, SIMI. He had left it in 1985, well before Umar Khalid was born. Ostensibly enough, there doesn’t appear to be a legal case against the organization when the left-wing Muslim communist’s father left the organization. SQR Ilyas recently contested the Lok Sabha Elections from West Bengal on a ticket from the Welfare Party of India (WPI) from the Jangipur constituency, a Muslim-dominated seat in the Murshidabad district.

The former SIMI member is now a member of Central Advisory Council of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind and served as convener of Babri Masjid Coordination Committee. He is now a member of AIMPLB.

Umar Khalid, meanwhile, has always maintained that he is an atheist and the mainstream media had worked hard to build up his image as a ‘hardcore Communist atheist’. However, recently, in the aftermath of Kamlesh Tiwari’s brutal murder by Jihadis, Khalid had bowed meekly before the prophet of Islam in his bid to deflect attention from the pervasive intolerance within significant sections of the Muslim community.

Some suspect that Umar Khalid is playing the ‘Taqqiya‘ card. The practice of ‘Taqiyya’ is a religiously sanctioned lying or deceiving non-Muslims in order to present oneself as not a true believer in Islam.
