    Suryanamaskar against Islam: Muslim law board

    The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) will launch a nationwide campaign against making ‘surya namaskar’ and yoga compulsory in schools.

    The board’s executive council took the decision when the Modi government’s plan to observe International Yoga Day on June 21 and related issues came up for discussion at its meeting on Sunday.

    ‘Surya namaskar against Islam’

    At the executive council meeting of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board here on Sunday, many members spoke up for a proactive role by the board on issues concerning the community.

    Executive council member Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahali told The Hindu that the board decided to constitute a committee, headed by Maulana Wali Rahmani for the purpose.

    “The board’s view on ‘surya namaskar’ and ‘yoga’ would be put forth by the committee along with the explanation why they go against the beliefs of the Muslims, and why they should not be imposed on their children,” the Maulana said.

    Another board member Kamaal Farooqui said that it was against Islam to salute the sun.

    “Surya namaskar should not be made mandatory in government schools,” because Muslims bowed only before ‘Allah.’

    “The board has the option to move the court and to launch a movement against the proposal,” he said.

    The meeting of the 51-member working committee, held at Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulema here, deliberated on several other issues, including the decision to install a Majlis-i-Amal (a committee to implement the board’s resolutions, its aims and objectives).

    Taking the support of other organisations, not necessarily those of Muslims, and people belonging to other faiths on issues related to the community was also brought up by some executive council members.

    Sunday’s meeting which ratified the decisions taken at the board’s annual convention held in Jaipur in December 2014 decided to name Maulana Rahmani as the acting general secretary and constitute a team of spokespersons for presenting the board’s views. Maulana Syed Nizamuddin will continue as general secretary.

    This was disclosed to journalists by board spokesman Maulana Abdul Rehman Qureshi, though there was no official briefing.

    In fact, it was Maulana Rahmani who made a forceful plea for setting up a panel of spokespersons for giving instant reactions because by the time the official response (from the board’s spokesman) came, it was too late.

    The decision to name spokespersons was taken after it was felt that there should be more interaction with the media.

    The issue was raised at the meeting by Qasim Rasool Ilyas, who said the media played a pivotal role and hence should be kept informed of the board’s activities.

    this is the problem with the so called Muslim leaders. They have never grown out of this thinking.

    As long as they have this retrograde thinking, leaders like Mulayam Singh and Laloo Yadav will continue to espouse their version of secularism ad the community will continue to lag behind.

    "you see, janaab, terrorijam and Urdu have no religion, but miyaan, Yoga/Surya Namaskaar has a religion! kufr! kufr! kufr! kufr!"

    'Logic of the peacefuls: I will not do Yoga as it is a kafir thing but I will definitely go to garbaas in kafir festival and dance with kafir girls. Also I will cry discrimination if not allowed to enter.'

    an Egyptian cleric had sometime back pointed out the dire need for and had called out for retrospection, introspection and making changes in Islam wherever reqd., this is another prime example that so necessitates it.

    A delegation representing a few Muslim groups met Union Minister of State for Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy Shripad Naik on Thursday to extend support to programmes being undertaken to mark International Yoga Day on June 21.

    Even as the government has been asserting that yoga is not religion-specific, some Muslim groups have been opposing yoga demonstrations in schools and other places. These groups have been particularly opposed to Surya Namaskar, a set of aasanas that the government claims has not been included in the common protocol to be followed in missions abroad and in India.

    The delegation, comprising representatives of the Majlis Ulema-e-Hind (Uttar Pradesh), Jamat Ulema-e-Hind (Delhi), All India Jamat-e-Salmani B, Jamat Huffaz Ikraam, the Daudi Bohra Community, the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan and so on, told Mr. Naik that a large percentage of the community did not believe in yoga being against their religion and supported the suggestion made by the Minister that Namaz had eight yoga postures.

    External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj recently clarified that joining the yoga programmes was not mandatory and they had no religious connotation. She cited the co-sponsorship to the event by 47 countries that are part of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation as an example of yoga not being associated with any particular religion.

    The government’s assurance notwithstanding, there were reports that the Catholic Bishops Conference of India has expressed displeasure over the decision to organise Yoga Day on Sunday, considered “sacred” by Christians.

    Canadian protests

    The Yoga Day celebrations have run into trouble abroad, as the Vancouver Sun reported that the First Nations groups are planning to crash the provincial government’s “yoga party on the bridge” next weekend in Vancouver.

    As the International Day of Yoga coincides with National Aboriginal Day, certain groups have asked people to protest. “Several pages have been set up on social media calling for a peaceful disruption of the mass yoga class with signs, singing and drumming,” the Vancouver Sun reported.

    Ramdev to lead practice session

    With Prime Minister Narendra Modi overseeing the International Yoga Day celebrations at Rajpath, government officials participating in the event have been asked to “practise” ahead of the D-day so that the demonstration is a synchronised exercise.



    Officials have been given a CD and a copy of the protocol to practise the aasanas which will be performed by as many as 35,000 people at Rajpath; a feat that India wants recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records. Practice sessions are also being carried out at the Nehru Yuva Kendras and Swami Ramdev is scheduled to hold a session at the Nehru Stadium on June 14.



    All central government officials, down to the level of under-secretaries, have been asked to join the yoga demonstration at Rajpath.



    Mr. Modi, an avid yoga practitioner, who proposed the addition of Yoga Day to the list of U.N. observances, has been sharing yoga aasanas and their relevance on Twitter.

    Of course Yoga is Hindu. Anyone claiming otherwise should have his head examined. Anything to delink Yoga from Hindus/Hinduism should be seen as an attack on Hinduism and our culture.

    These guys are just going to do asanas which is a small part of Yoga philosophy. Although, I agree if anyone does not want to do it, why force them to do anything beneficial?

    Btw, mobile phones, movies everything is kufar. I think Muslims bodies should boycott all the Khan movies and stop their kids from shaving chest like Salman!

    an update:

    Darul Uloom supports International Yoga Day, says it shouldn't be associated with religion
    gayi bhains paani mein! :facepalm:

    BTW, the popular fact that we used to hear/read that India has more Muslims than bakistan, is wrong?! read in the above link.

    also, a trivia - did you know that bakistanis have been organising/attending Yoga classes in thronges in their country, despite the ever-present lethal risks?!
