NEW DELHI – The Delhi Minorities Commission has demanded the government to ban the entry of Pakistani “hate-purveyor” Tarek Fateh into the country because “His speeches and writings based on lies and concoctions spread misunderstanding about Islam and Muslims.”
Chairman of Delhi Minorities Commission Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan said in a statement here on Wednesday that invitation to Fateh to deliver a speech on Indianisation of Islam at Hansraj College of Delhi University is “shameful and regrettable.”
The lecture is being organized by the RSS-linked India Policy Foundation at the college on Thursday (13th Sep) and it will be chaired by Firoz Bakht Ahmad, Chancellor of Maulana Azad National Urdu University.
Dr Khan said “provision of a platform to an open enemy of Islam and Muslims to spread hate is a shameful act. Rather the entry into the country of such a person should be banned. His speeches and writings based on lies and concoctions spread misunderstanding about Islam and Muslims.”
Dr Khan said Firoz Bakht Ahmad’s acceptance to chair this lecture will “taint his otherwise brilliant past and he will need years to wash the shame of this unfortunate decision. Still there is time for him to distance himself from this ignominy.”
