MECCA IMAM'S VISIT TO INDIA

Visit ignored by the Mumbai media. Interesting to know that form cricket captain Azharuddin flew with the Maulana to Deoband. Key observations -

1. The way the Saudi priest called on the religious groups of Indian Muslims and asked them to unite their co-religionists in the country for changing their existing social order suggest that the Saudi Government has an interest in transforming the Indian Muslims as pro-Saudi strategic ally.

2. He urged the Indian Muslims "to unite to change the social order" in India and suggested that the followers of Islam should use advance technology including internet and electronic media to take the message of the religion across the world. He plumped for setting up an Islamic TV channel in India for preaching the teachings of the companions of the Prophet.
3. Or is the visit part of UPAĆ¢€™s vote-bank politics policy.
