Rs 1,00,786 bounty on Mufti Ilyas who called Hindu deity a Muslim messenger
Tuesday February 24, 2015 8:20 PM, News Network

A Bareilly based NGO Monday announced a bounty of Rs 1,00,786 on Mufti Ilyas Qasmi, who stirred a controversy by terming Hindu Lord 'Bhagwan Shiv' as the first messenger of Muslims and stating that all Muslims are Hindus like Chinese in China and Americans in America.

Mooen Siddiqui Noori, national president of the All India Faizan-e-Madina Council, a socio-political group, said the cash award would be given only to a Muslim, and an "Islamic" sword would also be presented to the killer.

"Qasmi made these strange remarks against the Sharia on insistence from the RSS. If he really had any knowledge, his comments would be backed by the holy scripture," Noori said.

"For teaching such people a lesson so they never make such remarks again, I have decided that any Indian Muslim who gives me the head of Qasmi will be given a cash reward of Rs. 1,00,786", he has been quoted by the media as saying.

Mufti Ilyas had last week said that Muslims were also followers of Sanatan Dharma and "have no reservations in accepting that Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati were part of the series of a lakh and twenty four thousand prophets sent to Earth with a mission to establish humanity, true religion and God's rule in the world".

He said he thought there was nothing objectionable or wrong about referring to Indian Muslims as Hindus, since Muslims from India are called 'Hindi' in Arabian countries.

"We Indian Muslims are followers of Islam. We believe in 'Allah', but we are, traditionally, 'Hindus'," he said.

"We are not opposed to declaring India a Hindu country. The way population residing in China and Japan are called Chinese and Japanese respectively, we are called Hindustani," he added.
