‘Taliban studied in Pakistan’s Deobandi madrasas’ – Kerala Governor Arif Mohd Khan

Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan on Saturday asserted that everybody knows that the Taliban has studied in Deoband Madrasas of Pakistan and that man-made laws can never be termed as Shariat (Islamic law). He also said that the Indian government is doing the right thing by holding talks with the insurgent group in Afghanistan. While speaking to Times Now’s Navika Kumar, the Kerala Governor opined that the Central govt will do everything to ensure that there’s peace in the world and human rights are maintained.

Further talking about the Taliban’s announcement of implementing Shariat in all of Afghanistan, he said, “The reality is that man-made laws are never called Shariat because Quran calls itself Shariat. But nowadays, man-made rules and laws are termed as Shariat.”

He went on to say, “The purpose of religion is to improve human beings. Fanaticism means to establish dominance over others in the name of religion. Religion is a matter of inner consciousness.”

Pointing at Pakistan’s involvement in the Taliban, Governor Khan stressed that one thing about the Taliban which is mostly agreed everywhere is they have studied in Pakistan’s Deobandi Madrasas.

When questioned over the reports of some people from Kerala joining ISIS, he said that there is a possibility of it.

He, however, refused to react on the recent controversial comments on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Taliban by Javed Akhtar and Digvijaya Singh.

Hitting out at AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi’s efforts to develop a Muslim leadership in the country, Arif Mohammed Khan said, “Tell these people to stop talking about a separate identity. Make your identity that of an Indian. Then nothing will be beyond your reach.”
