Srinagar, May 28: Majlis-e-Tahafuz-e-Iman (MTI) an amalgam of religious scholars and Ulema Tuesday alleged that some influential people were attempting to protect the fake ‘faith-healer’ Gulzar Ahmad Bhat of Budgam district. The amalgam formed two committees to monitor the ongoing investigation by police into the case.
The decision in this regard was taken at a meeting chaired by President Majlis-e-Tahafuz-e-Iman (MTI) Moulana Rehmatuallah Mir at party headquarters at Mirwaiz Manzil here.
Ameer MTI, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq could not participate in the meeting due to ill health.
Representatives of prominent religious parties of Jammu and Kashmir participated in the meeting.
“The participants said in the light of solid evidence it becomes clear that impostor Peer Gulzar Ahmad Bhat was involved in immoral activities. The Majlis strongly condemns his shameless activities and would not tolerate such a blasphemy with the religion,” a spokesman of the MTI said in a statement.
”Details which have emerged regarding the fake faith healer points out that he twisted the Islamic teachings and Sunnah. The activities which used to happen in his bogus institution are not only a matter of concern but they have brought shame to every Kashmiri,” the statement said.
”Ironically, some influential people are attempting to intervene in Gulzar’s case so as to protect and save this impostor. We warn that such things won’t be allowed and would be confronted tooth and nail,” it stated.
In the backdrop of serious allegations against Gulzar, the MTI formed two committees. One of the committees comprising Advocate Zahid Ali, Abdul Rehman Bhat, Dr Yousuf Al Ummar, Mufti Muhammad Amin, Moulana Khurshid Ahmad, M Yaseen Kirmani, Moulana and MS Shamas will monitor police investigation in the case.
“This committee will talk to administration and police officers and would make it sure that Gulzar impostor gets punishment for his bad deeds,” the spokesman said.
Another committee will look into anti-Islamic statements by the Gulzar. This committee will comprise of Nazir Ahmad Qasmi, Agha Syed Muhammad Taki, Mufti Abdul Rasheed, Mufti Muhammad Yaqoob Baba Madni and Moulana Showkat Hussain Keng.
“We urge people to expose persons like Gulzar who are exploiting girls. There is also need to inform the Muslims about the activities of Christian missionaries in Kashmir. It is high time to formulate strategy to deal with these issues,” the spokesman said.
