Waseem Rizvi said that he has also sent one copy of ‘That Quran’ to Narendra Modi and requested that it should be made a part of the curriculum in all madrasas.
UP, Lucknow: Shia Central Waqf Board member and its ex chairman, Waseem Rizvi, has printed and self-published the first edition of what he has called ‘The Real Quran’(which is not).
Rizvi told that he will send the book to the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) chief as well.
Rizvi’s book has omitted 26 Quranic verses that he claims were promoting hatred. He claimed that these verses in the Quran were added after the death of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him).
In a video on social media, Rizvi said, “I have printed the first Real Quran, how it should have been after the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him). I will send this copy to AIMPLB chief to study so he may realize how much of a difference this book will make to end terrorism and violence.”
Earlier, the Supreme Court of India imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on Waseem Rizvi and dismissed his plea, seeking the apex court’s intervention into removing these 26 verses. He has re-filed the petition in the Supreme Court.
Rizvi also said that he has also sent one of it’s copies of ‘The New Printed Quran’ to the Prime Minister with a request that it should be made a part of the syllabus in all madrasas. He said that it will be available in the market as soon as possible.
He has not learned a lesson even though the SC fined him of Rs. 50,000 and rejected his plea for the removal of the 26 verses from the Holy Quran earlier.
