Why Cant We Build Colleges In The Area Marked For Mosques – Salim Khan
Ali Peter John
Thank God, we had learned judge sof the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogol, who passed an enlightened and very balanced judgement on the long – standing dispute over Babri and Ayodhya. I shudder to think of what would have happened if the judgement was the not the way it is. The way there was a red alert situation all over the country on the day of the judgement showed how insecure the Government was and the way the majority of the Indians reacted to the judgement finally showed how mature we as a nation were slowly but surely growing in to. Let’s pat ourselves on our backs for this major achievement on our parts.
This is one of the reactions coming from Salim Khan, one of the leading writers of the film industry and the octogenarian father of stars like Salman Khan, Sohail Khan and Arbaaz Khan. I wish there were many others who could react like Khan has, it could lead to a brighter India than the dark and uncertain future we were on the verge of facing.
Welcoming Supreme Court’s historic verdict on Ayodhya dispute, Salim Khan, father of three stars Salman, Sohail and Arbaaz, said that two virtues of Islam as described by the Prophet are love and forgiveness. “So now after ‘The-End’ of this story (Ayodhya dispute), Muslims should adhere to these two virtues and march forward. Mohabbat zahir kariye aur maaf kariye (show love and forgive). Do not rewind, recap such issues now…just move ahead from here,” said Salim Khan.
The renowned writer, who in the early seventies formed the iconic Salim-Javed duo along within his friend Javed Akhtar, is of the view that in the past couple of decades, Indian society has matured. “The manner in which peace and harmony is being maintained, after the announcement of such a sensitive verdict, is commendable. Let’s accept…a very old dispute has been settled.. From the core of my heart, I welcome the decision,”
Salim Khan said.
Muslims should not discuss this (Ayodhya dispute). Instead, they should discuss their basic problems and try to find out solutions. The reason why I am saying that is we need schools and hospitals… why I am suggesting that is it would be better if we build a college at the alternative 5-acre land, to be provided in Ayodhya for building a mosque. Humein masjid ki zaroorat nahi. Namaz to hum kahin bhi padh lenge…train me, plane me, zameen par, kahin bhi padh lenge (we can offer namaz anywhere, in train, plane or on the floor). But we need better schools. Talim achhi milegi 22 crore musalmano ko, toh is desh kee bahut si kamiyan khatam ho jayengi (if 22 crore Muslims get good education, then many problems of this counrty would be solved)” he added.
The octogenarian film writer who pioneered the Bollywood block buster formula, said Prime Minister Modi is laying stress on peace. “I agree with the PM, we really need peace today. We need peace to focus on our objectives. We have to think of our future. We should realise that better future exists for those who are educated in a better way. The real issue is that Muslims are not so well in taleem (education).So I would repeat that let us say ‘The-End’ (for Ayodhya issue) and make a new beginning,” said Salim Khan, also respected for his talks and ideas on social issues affecting the people in India.
