Shahi Imam ‘assaults’ scribe at meet

LUCKNOW: A local journalist has lodged an FIR against Shahi Imam of Delhi’s Jama Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari, for assaulting him during a press conference on Thursday. Mohammed Wahid Chishti, editor of ‘Dastan-e-Awadh’, has accused Bukhari and his entourage of beating him up and threatening him of dire consequences when he asked some uncomfortable questions during the press conference.

The maulana, who has been highly critical of the Allahabad high court’s judgment on Ayodhya title suit, lost his cool when Chishti reminded him about his earlier stand that Muslims must respect the verdict. Appearing to be in a particularly dark mood, he brusquely ordered Chishti to be quiet and take his seat.

When Chishti didn’t stop, Bukhari ordered the man to hold his tongue or his neck would be broken. “Traitors like you have killed all the aspirations of Muslims in India,” he said amidst torrents of threats. The press conference broke up soon after and Chishti was surrounded by TV crews. This enraged Bukhari further and he charged towards the journalist who had to be rescued by other journalists who were present.
