Cleric: TRS hurting Muslim sentiments
Hyderabad: The state government’s decision to rename the Necklace Road was criticised on Sunday by the the ameer (president) of Amarat-e-Millat-e-Islamia Telangana & Andhra Pradesh, Moulana Jafar Pasha. The cleric accused the government of double standards over its claims of being minority welfare-oriented. He said the party has hurt the sentiments of Muslim community.
“The government first changed the name of an agricultural university, gave MLC to a family member and now renamed a road in Hyderabad. The government has been indulging in such acts that are hurting the sentiments of Muslims. The recent decision to change the logo of Osmania University is among one,” Jafar Pasha said. The cleric claimed he had quit from Muslim United Forum and abstained from appealing to Muslims to vote in favour of TRS in elections. He also criticised other Muslim leaders for being tight lipped over the issue. TNN
