Know my religion very well: Mehbooba Mufti defends temple visit, offering water to Shivling

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who visited the Navagraha temple in Poonch district and offered water to a Shivling on Wednesday, drew flak from both the BJP and Muslim clerics. On Thursday, Mehbooba Mufti hit out at the clerics and said she knew her “religion very well”.

A day ago, the chief of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), who was on a two-day tour of Poonch district, visited the Navagraha temple on the Poonch border and offered prayers. She also offered water to a Shivling at the temple

While the BJP dismissed her temple visit as “drama and gimmick”, a maulana in Uttar Pradesh’s Deoband said what Mehbooba Mufti had done was not permissible in Islam.

Mufti Asad Qasmi, national vice-president of Ittehad Ulema e Hind, said, “Be it Mehbooba Mufti or any other common Muslim, everyone is aware of what our religion says, what our religion allows and what all is prohibited in our religion.”

“This is India, everyone here is free to do whatever he wants… However, what Mehbooba Mufti has done is inappropriate and not permitted in Islam. It is not that what Mehbooba Mufti has done will strip her of her religion, but what she has done is against the principles of Islam,” said Asad Qasmi. (India Today)
