Ahle Hadees Conference

Malegaon (Maharashtra): In the strongest ever rebuttal of baseless allegations raised against Ahle Hadees, Jamiat Ahle Hadees Maharashtra on Sunday reminded the country of the sacrifices made by the group during the freedom struggle of India.

"Over five lakh (500,000) Ahle Hadees had sacrificed their lives during India's freedoom fighter. People travelling in villages and towns saw their corpses hanging on trees all around", Jalaluddin Qasmi, an alumnus of Darul Uloom Deoband, said quoting Tara Chand.

Renowned archaeologist and historian, Tara Chand, who taught at Allahabad University and also served as its Vice Chancellor in 1940s, is the author of 'History of Freedom Movement in India'.

"It's not a small number and there are very few who could match the sacrifices of Ahle Hadees for this country", Jalaluddin Qasmi addressing the day-long Manhaj e Salaf conference jointly organised by Jamiat Ahle Hadees Maharashtra and Jamiat Ahle Hadees Malegaon Sunday.

"Nothing can be more shameful and condemnable than the act of some people and a section of media who despite such a glorious history of Ahle Hadees level unfounded allegations against them just to fulfill their vested interest", he added.

To further draw his point, Jalaluddin Qasmi quoted Jawaharlal Nehru, former Prime Minister of India and one of the frontal leaders of India's freedom movement, who praised the sacrifices of Ulema of Sadiqpur Patna, Bihar for the country as extraordinary and unmatchable.

"Nehru had said if sacrifices of the Ulema of Sadiqpur Patna Bihar are put on one side of a balance and our entire efforts are put on the other, their's will be heavier and our's will be worthless in comparision", Qasmi said.

Qasmi also said that it is because of the strong and firm stand taken by Ahle Hadees against terrorism and extremism because of which terrorist organisations hate Ahle Hadees the most.

Taking forward Jalaluddin Qasmi's assertions, Mohammad Rahmani Sanabili, President of Jamia Islamia Sanabil, New Delhi, while addressing the valedictory session of day-long Jamiat Ahle Hadees Manhaj e Salaf conference shared of historical evidence to prove the contributions of Ahle Hadees during the Indian freedom movement.

"It is Ahle Hadees who called terrorists and violent groups Khawarij and ran campaigns to exposed them", he said.

In his keynote speech of the conference, Mohammad Rahmani Sanabili condemned once again Pulwama terrorist attack and reiterated Jamiat Ahle Hadees's stand against all kinds of violence,.

At the same time, he urged the Ahle Hadees, especially the youth, to focus more on practices based on the path laid down in the Holy Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him).

Earlier in the morning, the day-long national conference organised by Jamiat Ahle Hadees Maharashtra opened with a strong condemnation of the terror attack on the CRPF convoy in Pulwama district of Kashmir in which more than 40 CRPF troopers were killed and a large number of others were left injured.

"Terrorists will never succeed in their evil design to weaken our country by such cowardly attacks", Razaullah Abdul Kareem, senior cleric of Jamiat Ahle Hadees Hind, said while opening the day-long conference.

"We want to make it very clear that the Indian Muslims and Jamiat Ahle Hadees are with the country in its fight against terrorism and violence", he said while condemning the Pulwama terrorist attack.
