A cleric of Ajmer Dargah in Rajasthan was arrested today as he allegedly shared on camera to gift his house to anyone who decapitated suspended spokesperson Nupur Sharma. Her remarks on Prophet Mohammad had provoked protests in India and condemnation from Gulf nations.
The Rajasthan police is also searching for Salman Chishti after an FIR was registered on Monday night over a video clip.
In the video, the cleric was saying that he would give his house to anyone who brings Nupur Sharma’s head to him. He is said he would have shot her dead for insulting the Prophet.
He said in the video, referring to the renowned Sufi shrine,”You have to give a reply to all Muslim countries. I am saying this from Ajmer, Rajasthan and this message is from Huzur Khwaja Baba ka Darbar,”
The office of Ajmer Dargah Diwan Zainul Abedin Ali Khan has denounced the video and has said the shrine is a place of communal harmony. The views expressed by the ‘khadim’ in the video cannot be considered a message from the dargah.
