See who is 'denouncing' DJ music in Milad un-Nabi procession: Shiv Sena's Hindi Saamna
Sunday December 27, 2015 0:15 AM, Staff Reporter

: What can be more reprehensible than this to those Muslims who celebrated Eid Milad un-Nabi on Thursday dancing on the tunes of DJ music and bursting firecrackers?

Hindi Saamna – organ of Shiv Sena, the party known for its anti-Muslim rhetoric and hate agenda, in front-page article on Friday sarcastically mocked the Muslims for ignoring the guidelines for Milad un-Nabi procession issued by local clerics.

“Muslim clerics had issued a ‘fatwa’ that no one should play DJ music in the Eid Milad un-Nabi procession as it is forbidden and haram in Islam. But, the Muslims, recklessly ignoring the ‘fatwa’ issued by their clerics, played DJ music in high decibel sound”, the Hindi Saamna front-page article in its Friday edition titled ‘To hell with the fatwa’ said.

About two weeks ago the clerics had issued ‘fatwa’ against DJ music saying it is part of western culture and hence Muslims should refrain from such evils, the newspaper said.

The newspaper said huge pandals were erected in Muslim dominated areas to greet the Milad un-Nabi procession on Thursday. Along with these pandals, DJ was also being played in high pitch sound.

The newspaper claimed that in reply to a question Israr M. Shaikh of Malwani area said they are playing DJ since last many years and it cannot be stopped just because ‘somebody’ has issued a fatwa.

Meanwhile, reports published in some Urdu newspapers said that Muslims celebrating Milad un-Nabi were not only playing DJ but they were also dancing on drumbeats and bursting firecrackers.

It is learnt that the clerics besides issuing guidelines in newspapers had also held series of meetings in different areas to create awareness about the ethics and rules to be followed during the procession.

However despite all their efforts DJ was played in high pitch sound, firecrackers were burst with youths dancing on drumbeats.

"This is a fact that more people played DJ in the Milad un-Nabi procession this year despite all efforts to stop them", Iqbal Memon of Ekta Welfare Association, Muhammad Ali Road said.

Abdul Gaffar Memon, who is volunteering since last 27 years in the procession which starts from Khilafat House, said the youths were totally out of control and were not ready to listen to anyone

Syed Moinuddin Ashraf, who organised a series of awareness meetings however said their appeals had an impact and they will continue with their efforts till the evil practice is fully eliminated from the Muslim society.

"It is wrong to say that our appeals did not have any impact. But, it will take some more time to completely get rid of such evils", he said.
