Prominent Muslim scholar says there is no other country like India where Islamic works could be carried out
New Delhi: A prominent Muslim scholar has said there is no other country like India where Islamic works could be carried out.
Ponmala Abdulkhader Musliyar, who belongs to pro-CPI(M) Sunni Muslim organisation, told The Indian Express: "When you examine various countries in the world, there is no other country like India where we can carry out the Islamic work."
"Even in Gulf countries, which we are familiar with, there is no freedom as we have in India. In Eastern countries like Malaysia also we do not see the freedom for Islamic work as we have in India. Will the organisational work which we are carrying out India be possible anywhere else? There is no other country like ours which is suitable for Islamic work," he said.
He made the remark while addressing a meeting of the Sunni Students Federation of the A P Sunni segment in Kozhikode on Sunday.
