Muslim cleric says mass murder by Charlie Hebdo jihadis was “completely legitimate and according to Sharia”

HYDERABAD, India: A video has emerged showing a Muslim cleric in India leading a funeral prayer for the Kouachi Brothers, where he praises and endorses the mass murder of cartoonists and satirists of the French magazine Charlie Hebdo.

According to Bharat Press, the video was shot in Hyderabad, the common capital of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, and the cleric is Maulana Mohammed Naseeruddin, who is a well known and respected cleric and Khateeb in the old city.

In the video, Maulana Naseeruddin is seen describing the Charlie Hebdo terrorists as “martyrs” and making prayers to Allah for their afterlife. He says, “Our lives are of no meaning if someone, who has insulted the prophet, is still alive.”

The Mullah is also heard condemning the Unity Rally that took place in Paris on Sunday.

Later, talking to the reporter Abuaimal Akram, who uploaded the video on YouTube, Maulana Naseeruddin justified the act of terror at Charlie Hebdo’s office as a deed sanctioned by Islamic traditions.

In fact, he goes on to say (at 3:26 minutes onward in the video above) that Prophet Muhammad himself had ordered the executions of people who had mocked or insulted the Prophet of Islam and Allah.

The Islamic cleric further says, as per the Islamic traditions, those insulting the faith and the Prophet should not be forgiven, but killed. He adds that since there is no global leadership of Muslims, it become the responsibility of every individual Muslim to make sure that such offenders don’t go unpunished.

“What they (the terrorists) did was completely legitimate as per sharia laws,” he asserts. Concluding his interview, Maulana says that he endorses what was done by the terrorists in the French magazine office and that’s why he decided to lead this special prayer.

    If this interpretation of Islam and Mohammed is correct, then it becomes very difficult to say or accept that Islam is a religion of peace but it could only be inferred to the contrary.

    Please some one clarify for me. Is he a good Muslim or a bad Muslim?

    What would Mr. Sharukh Khan (My name is Khan but I am not a terrorist) has to say about this?

    Cleric like Maulana Nasruddin reads gospel and takes the literal meaning. That was possibly good justice in those dark ages. We are living in civilised world and if he is a real cleric he should condemn murder of innocent people every where. Lal Bahadur Mandal.

    Islam is not a religion but basically a sect or tribe. True religion would never preach to kill followers of other religions or even refer other religions as inferior to it. So Islamists are nothing but an ancient violent sectorial tribe.

    Even Christianity is similar to Islam and you may find much similarity between the two. Jesus & his followers were chased by Roman soldiers when he crossed the Holy River by creating path by touching with his stick. The same act was repeated only the place & people changed for Mohammed & his followers being chased by Jews and the river becomes Nile in Egypt.

    Looks like both are twins or blood brothers and both converts followers of other religions to increase their numbers.

    The Vatican does it by bribing & inducing (mostly tribals & illiterates) while the Islamists does it forcibly or by violent killing the followers of other religions.

      Pl read the concept of any religion clearly, you will not find any difference, all the religious ideology is the same — Submit to God Almighty completely. Since Prophet Muhammad is the last Prophet of that one God Almighty, he is the Prophet for everyone bro. So, blasphemous acts to Prophet Muhammad is always condemnable for every believer of God, whether he may be Hindu, sikh, christian, Jew, or any religious sects.

    Rising muslim population in india is a time bomb on india which will explode in the future if not diffused. in west bengal 28 percent muslim up from 10 percent in 1971.if it crosses 50 percent which ll happen in few decades if this rate continues then muslims of west bengal will demand merger with bangladesh and hindus has to run out of west bengal to save there life like kashmiri pandits.Assam had no muslims till 20th 34 percent mostly because of illegal bangaladeshi muslims.every decade rising by 3 to 5 percent already threatening local population.western up with rising muslim population is resulting in regular riots small or big. kerala is already becoming isis base in india with rising muslim population in kerala. kashmir is indian territory only in map. all those people who are thinking hindus and muslims will live peacefully together are living in fools paradise.history is against this and not learning from history..from the time of invaders like qasim,gazani,timur,nadir shah to kings like ghori,khilji,tugalaq,balban,lodhi,babur to aurangazeb to creation of pakistan hindus suffered a lot.lost 80 million people,slavery for 800 years,lost 1/3rd of the territory to pakistan. biggest blunder of partition was not doing population transfer correctly so that non muslims live in india and muslims in pakistan avoiding future conflicts. india lost 1/3rd of territory to pakistan and created eternal enemy.muslims continued to live in india and grow their numbers exponentially. result oriented ghar wapsi ,uniform civil code,deport illegal bangadeshi muslims is the only way to avoid creation of another pakistan from india.
