Ulemas strongly criticize Baroness Warsi’s statement
LAHORE (92 News) – Several Ulemas have on Friday strongly criticized former UK Conservative Party chairperson Baroness Sayeeda Warsi over her statement suggesting the mosques in the UK could be designed without minarets to look like “quintessentially English” places of worship.
Talking to 92 News, former minister for religious affairs Hamid Saeed Kazmi said that the proposal of Baroness Warsi is inappropriate and unworkable, adding that we have to keep our mosques distinguishing from the non-Muslim’s places of worship.
Meanwhile talking to 92 News, Jamia Naeemia Nazim Moulana Mufti Raghib Naeemi said that the Sayeeda Warsi’s statement is her personal opinion, adding that she don’t have right to give statements regarding mosques.
On the other hand talking to 92 News, Jamaat-e-Islami chief Meeraj-ul-Huda Siddique said that the feeling of isolation in the society will emerge within the Muslims of European countries following the ending of minarets of mosques.
