Bihar Minister Khurshid alias Firoz Ahmad on Sunday said that he will not hesitate in chanting ‘Jai ShriRam’ for the sake of harmony and development of the state. “If I have to say ‘Jai Shri Ram’ for people of Bihar, development, harmony, I will never step back from saying it,” the minister said while talking to ANI.
Following his statement, Imarat-e-Shariah issued a fatwa against him and ostracised the minister from Muslim community. Reacting over the diktat, Ahmad stated, “God knows with what intention I raised slogans of ‘jai shri Ram’. My work will tell who I am… Respect Imarat Shariah, they should have asked my intentions (before issuing fatwa). Why should I be scared?.”
Khurshid was once again made a minister in the JD(U)-BJP government yesterday and was given the Minority Welfare portfolio. He was a minister in the Grand Alliance too.
Imarat-e-Shariya has issued a fatwa against Bihar minister Khurshid Alam for chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. The fatwa also nullifies Alam’s marriage. Watch to know more.
