Bhopal: All-India Ulema Board will hand over memorandum to the governor and the chief minister against Niyaz Ahmad Khan, ADM in Guna district, for causing ‘embarrassment to Islam by using offensive content’ in his novel ‘Talaq Talaq Talaq’.
Committee member Nurulah Yusufjai said the ADM had previously also expressed desire to spend time with Mumbai bomb blast accused Abu Salem.
“Now we are demanding the government to ensure stern action against Khan as his actions will also create a negative image of the state government. He has taken things out of context, thereby causing embarrassment to our religion, which has hurt our sentiments,” added Nurullah.
“He has mocked the rituals of the religion including marriage and other things and has also termed women as objects in our society which a civilised society can’t tolerate,” he added.
The novel would not only tarnish the religion but also create rift in society. Hence it should be banned, said another member of the board.
