TWO DAYS after VHP leader Sadhvi Prachi, while speaking on Dadri lynching, said that beef-eaters deserve such fate, Maviya Ali — expelled SP leader and chairman of Deoband Municipal Board in Saharanpur — on Monday said there was no harm if Prachi was killed.
He also favoured that communal elements from both sides — Hindus and Muslims — should play a one-day match, which will continue till one of the two are tired.

“She (Prachi) is spewing venom. She does not deserve to be alive. There is no harm if she is killed,” Ali said. He added that the Dadri incident was a terror activity and the perpetrators of the crime should be treated like terrorists and hanged.

Soon after his statement, SP distanced itself from Ali, stating that he was expelled from the party two years ago. “It is really sad. Such statements have no place. The person was expelled nearly two years ago. Due to such statements, we lose our case,” Minority Welfare Minister Azam Khan said.

Ali was expelled from SP after he supported Maulana Ghulam Vastanvi as rector of Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband against the Madani family.

“It is true that technically I am not a part of SP, but my expulsion was a diplomatic thing done by SP chief Mulayam Yadav to keep clerics in good humour. Since then, I have met and discussed party issues several times with Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. The need for reinduction in the party never crossed my mind,” he told The Indian Express.

Taking a dig at Azam, he said: “What is Azam doing? Approaching UN means you have lost faith in the Indian system. What I am saying is practical. No one votes for a manifesto. One only votes for mandir or masjid. So, let us have a one-day match,” he said while referring to Azam Khan writing to the United Nations to look into the “miseries” of minorities in India.

“People should be thankful to Muslims that despite being 25 crore in number, we are living peacefully… else we won’t keep quiet even if we have a population of one crore. The onus of being peaceful does not always rest on us,” added Ali.

He also targeted Union Minister Mahesh Sharma, saying that he should contact Prime Minister Narendra Modi and drop atom bombs in six states where beef is not prohibited. “Modi should be careful as those who promote terror groups do not end up well,” he added.
