Muslims condemn Imam Nurur Rahman Barkati’s fatwa against Modi

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

Kolkata: A Muslim cleric in Kolkata has stirred a hornets’ nest by reportedly issuing a fatwa against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It was not really a fatwa that the clerics issue from within the sacred walls of religious institutions, but while speaking at a press conference.

The imam, Syed Mohammad Nurur Rahman Barkati, was speaking against the demonetization and its harmful impacts on the common people across the country. He said that the people across the country are suffering while the people who have accumulated huge amount of black money are enjoying at their palatial mansions without facing any problem.


Syed Mohammad Nurur Rahman Barkati who is the Shahi Imam of Kolkata’s historic Tipu Sultan Masjid accused the PM of cheating people through notebandi. According to the complaint filed by BJP, Shahi Imam has issued a fatwa “offering a reward of Rs 25 lakh for anyone who will cut Prime Minister’s beard, shave his head and smear him with black ink.”

Muslims are criticizing the imam over his comment against the Prime Minister. Khalida Parveen, a human rights activist, based in Hyderabad, while condemning the fatwa against PM Modi said, “Why this political imam is defaming the Muslim community of india by his fatwa?”

Well-known academician Prof. Neshat Quaiser while speaking about it said, “ Once again the Fatwa controversy has surfaced. A moulvi, the Pesh-Imam of Calcutta’s Tipu Sultan Mosque, has made a reprehensible statement (not a genuine critique) concerning demonetisation…This should be condemned. But this is a statement made in a public meeting NOT a Fatwa. This Calcutta moulvi is just a Pesh-Imam not a Mufti (if I am not wrong). A Mufti is properly trained in the science of Fatwa literature and only then is entitled to issue a Fatwa, which is just a sharia based opinion, and which is not necessarily to be adhered to.”
