Salim Khan hails judgement on Haji Ali

Mumbai : After the Bombay High Court verdict allowing entry of women up to the restricted grave area of the Haji Ali Dargah, superstar Salman Khan’s father and veteran writer Salim Khan welcomed it by saying that the judgement endorses what Hadees and Quran say.

Muslim clerics on Friday questioned the Bombay High Court verdict, asserting that while they respect the court, the ruling goes against Islam.

“High court judgement on Haji Ali endorses what Hadees and Quran have said. To be a good Muslim, you have to be a good human being,” Salim tweeted on Saturday.

Salim also shared that it’s the “Mullas and Maulvis”, who have complicated an uncomplicated religion like Islam.

“Mazar and Durga are graves men and women both can visit them as there is no gender discrimination in Islam. Mullas and Maulvis are complicating an uncomplicated religion like Islam,” he added.

The 80-year-old also shared that Fatwa is not a verdict.

“Even Fatwa is not a verdict as people think, it’s an opinion given by an Islamic scholar,” he wrote.
