Stay away from persons like Khanna, Bhorst: Imams
APOSTASY TOPIC DOMINATES FRIDAY SERMONS
Srinagar, Jan 20: Day after Shariat Court sought expulsion of pastor, C M Khanna and his accomplices for their involvement in unethical practices in the valley, Imams of various Masajids on Friday said, people like Khanna and Bhorst were still walking freely in the valley, asking people to stay away from them.
Addressing people at various Masajids in the city, these Imams said, people should not befriend unknown persons, which later proves disastrous for their faith. “There are some people like Khanna still in our society who need to be expelled from the valley. There are reports that a Korean couple is involved in some unethical practices in Valley. They have been also found speaking Kashmiri and asking people to practice things that are prohibited in Islam,” an Imam told a Friday gathering here.
In their Friday sermons, the Imams underscored the need that there was a need to safeguard the faith of people. “They might give us bounties, but we won’t get peace of mind from them. Even if we earn less and live a simple life, it is thousand times better,” the Imams added.
The subject of apostasy was mentioned by every Imam in their sermons. They asked the people to follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in letter and spirit. All we need is to follow the teachings of Quran and sayings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), they said.
The Imams welcomed the decree of Shariat court, saying people involved in such activities should also be meted out with same punishments.
