Delhi Minorities Commission head threatens India of Islamic ‘avalanche’

While Muslim scribes dealt a blow to the 'secular' faith some Muslims can be moderate by citing the Delhi Minorities Commission head's act, Islamic websites did not even bother to delete comments that contained expletives for Hindus

Underscoring the notion that Islam is one nation regardless of nationalities defined by citizenship, Zafarul-Islam Khan, the head of the Delhi Minorities Commission under the Arvind Kejriwal government, has been in news since yesterday for appealing to Islamic states of the Middle East to intervene in Indian affairs, threatening “bigots” of an “avalanche”. “Mind you, bigots, Indian Muslims have opted until now not to complain to the Arab and Muslim world about your hate campaigns and lynchings and riots. The day they are pushed to do that, bigots will face an avalanche,” wrote the chairman of the Delhi Minorities Commission on Facebook.

Khan repeated the threat on Twitter with a screenshot of his post, thanking Kuwait and agencies of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia for their support to his “cause”.

This act of Khan elicited temperamental responses from different communities: Some condemned it, others cheered it, with nobody staying neutral on the issue. The report of these two social media posts by Khan evoked, for example, cheers from Muslim readers in pro-Islam websites like Siasat that did not bother to delete at least comments containing expletives. A few Hindu-sounding names can be seen on the list too.

Worse, if anybody carried the impression some or a few Muslims could be moderate and/or intellectual too, or that a few of them could rise above their communal identity, The Indian Express‘s consulting editor for years Seema Chishti, who happens to be the wife of CPI(M) politician Sitaram Yechury, dealt a blow to their ‘secular’ faith by justifying the deed of Khan.

The only Muslims who objected to Khan’s letter, albeit with mild terms like “unfortunate”, were members of the BJP. Here’s the tweet by Syed Shahnawaz Hussain:

On the right side of the ideological divide, BJP spokesman Sambit Patra reacted with dismay at the hailing of fugitive Zakir Naik by Khan. He wrote on Twitter: “Friends posting the letter of Sh Zafarul-Islam Khan, Chairman of Delhi Minorities Commission. Please go through the content. Not only Zakir Naik is hailed as a hero but also there’s a threat in the form of an Avalanche!! Do I need to say more?”

One of the regular faces of the RSS on television, Ratan Sharda tweeted, “Shabash #AAP. Their Delhi minorities commission chief threatens #India. “If pushed, Bigots will face avalanche. We will make it international.” Praises Zakir Naik. Any doubts that these #Bigots are itching for “show down”?”

Former chief of the Delhi unit of BJP condemned the invitation to foreign countries to meddle in Indian affairs. He wrote on Twitter: “The Chairman of Delhi Minorities Commission @khan_zafarul has written a letter to Kuwait giving a display of his blatant bigotry. He has also tried to malign India by spreading lies & creating communal enmity. Shameful conduct by someone probably handpicked by CM @ArvindKejriwal.”

Gupta also asked for the sacking of Khan.

The condemnation was not limited to tweets by members of the Sangh Parivar. News analyst Anshul Saxena wrote: “I pity Delhi Minorities Commission chief Zafarul’s message to Kuwait Under the guise of Islamophobia, he hailed radical preacher Zakir Naik who: 1. Inspired terrorists of Bangladesh’s Dhaka attack (24 people killed). 2. Inspired 127 arrested ISIS sympathizers from across India”

Speaking to different news channels on television following the controversy, the Delhi Minorities Commission head stuck to his statement. On Times Now, he sought credit for persuading some Islamic states not to raise the issue of Kashmir. On the issue of asking for foreign intervention in Indian affairs, he said, “We haven’t done it so far, but we can.”

Khan defended Zakir Naik saying the latter was merely an accused. “Nothing has been proven against him as yet,” the Delhi Minorities Commission chairman said.

When he insisted he had written against “bigots” and “those who lynch” and not against this country, Khan was not questioned why members of the Tablighi Jamaat, whose cause he is championing, spread across the country after the event at Nizamuddin Markaz and even absconded. He was not questioned why they stripped before nurses. He was not asked why they defecated in the corridors of the isolation wards. No channel asked him why even non-Tablighi Muslims have been defying social distancing across the country by participating in mass prayers. Nobody asked him why Muslims not belonging to the jamaat too are assaulting policemen and health workers from Delhi to Mumbai, from Indore to Moradabad, from Hyderabad to Berhampore…
