LUCKNOW: After former chairperson of the UP Shia Central Waqf Board Waseem Rizvi raised a storm amid various sections of Muslims across the world with his petition in Supreme Court demanding its intervention for removal of 26 verses in the Quran pertaining to alleged ‘violent nature’, he has gathered various forms of reactions.
While clerics from both Shia and Sunni sects are demanding his arrest and a street protest is planned in Lucknow on Sunday, Rizvi has also been receiving threats from various quarters.
On Saturday, ex-chairperson Moradabad Bar Association, advocate Haji Amirul Hasan Jafri, announced a reward of Rs 11 lakh to the one who executes Rizvi. The person who cuts off Rizvi’s head will get this prize money,” he said. After his move to file this PIL in SC has triggered a storm, Rizvi has switched off his phone and has limited his outings to minimal even with his already provided Y+ security cover. “I have informed authorities but haven’t made a complaint yet. I’m scared for my family,” he told TOI.
