Save India from Taliban
Bikaner, Rajasthan, India
On February 10, the grounds of the historic Sadul club filled with more than two million Sunni Sufis from across India. It was a memorable sight when the assembled people chanted 'Bhaarat Zindabaad' (Long Live India!) and 'Wahhabi Murdabad' (Wahhabism, go to hell!).

Maulana Ashraf lambasted the Indian political class as not understanding the need for representation of Sunni Muslims in politics. Maulana Ashraf denounced the radical Wahhabi fake Sunni Muslims in looting the rights of 80 percent of traditional Sunni Muslims. He reiterated that Sunni Sufi Muslims make up 80 percent of India's Muslim population, but its participation in power is zero. He offered the dictum that a true Indian Sunni Muslim is neither going to submit to Wahhabi religious leaders nor accept Wahhabis as political mentors.
In an emotional tone, Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Ashraf Quadri Mian said the catastrophe of the Islamic world is caused by the foolishness of fanatical Wahhabis. He said we shall not allow Wahhabism to capture India. Maulana Quadari said they have tried it from Africa to Pakistan to Afghanistan to Syria, but they will not be successful here in India as we are aware of the dirty game of the Saudi Arabian regime.
Ajmer Dargah presbyter and All India Ulema and Mashaikh Board Patron in Chief Maulana Syed Mehdi Mian declared that the mystic land of Indian Saints and its culture are unwelcome to Wahhabi "Salafi" ideology.
The All India Ulama and Mashaikh Board's National Secretary Syed Babar Ashraf warned that 80 percent of the Muslim population of the country, in the context of government programs, planning and policy, find no place. The Wahhabi agenda hinges on seizure in India of Islamic monuments, dargahs [Sufi shrines], mosques and madrasas. A letter embodying this message was passed around the Sadul Club ground, with more than two million people repearting in unison, "Please accept, please accept it," as a slogan echoing in the vibrant sky.
Chief Conservators of Dargahs, Ulema, the imam of the local mosque, and the city Qazis [Islamic jurists] of Rajasthan attended the assembly. Sunni Islamic da'wa institutions, including many local organizations, worked to make the program successful.
