It must have become known by now that a former chairman of the Shia Waqf Board has submitted a PIL to the Supreme Court.
In the PIL, Waseem Rizvi has urged to remove 26 verses from the Holy Quran.
The petition wrongly tries to make people believe that these verses were added to the Holy Book by the first three Caliphs of Islam and promote violence and terror.
The very first thing that I would like to say is that the Quran was revealed to bring the world close to God so that we all believe in and worship only The One who has created us all.
The second thing is that the Creator, who is called Eishwar by Hindus, God by the Christians and known by His proper name ‘Allah’ by Muslims has taken it upon Himself to protect the Quran. Hence neither did the Caliphs have the power to add anything to it, nor will anybody else be able to remove anything from it. In fact, there has not been a single change in the book from what was revealed by God through His Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.)
Finally I would like to speak up for Islam and say that the word itself means Peace and the religion is against terrorism and not what the media has made out it to be.
In fact, the Surah Fatiha which we compulsorily read in all our five daily prayers starts with the words:
Al Hamdolillah Rabbil Alamin
Praise be to Allah Lord of the Worlds
It does not start with Al Hamdolillah Rabbil Muslimin
which would mean that Allah is the Lord of only the Muslims.
Hence, there can be no verse in the Quran that promotes violence and terror. Perhaps Mr. Rizwi has misinterpreted or is trying to give a wrong meaning to the 26 verses for his political gain.
And most importantly, according to the Quran, any person who wrongly takes the life of another is as though he killed the entire human race; and whoever keeps a sould alive, it is as though he kept alive the entire human race.
