Bengaluru: Jamat-e-Ahle Sunnat, Karnataka, President Moulana Tanveer Hashmi on Friday asserted that the organisation will file a writ petition in Supreme Court against the implementation of Citizenship Amendment Bill – 2019 through which people have been asked to prove their citizenship.
Speaking at a press conference at the office of Jamat-e-Ahle Sunnat, Karnataka in R T Nagar added that the bill is violation Article 14, 15 and 21 of Indian Constitution.
“The constitution of this country clearly states that the country will not provide citizenship to anybody on religious line. We take pride in calling ourselves as Indians, but this bill is clearly set against Muslims” he noted.
“The Contitution of this country is set on the principles of secularism and democracy. The CAB is threat to our Constitution, and the day this law is implemented in the country, it will be a dark day for the democracy. We condemn this law and we will fight a legal battle against this” he added.
He further stated that not only Muslims but all the secular people of the country condemn the NRC and CAB. “There will be protests against the agenda of Central Government if it continues with such acts and bills. Everyone will come together against the government to condemn such bills” he said.
He called upon all the organisations, clerics, intelluctuals to come together and stand united against the attitude of the government. He also added that this will be another freedom movement in the history of the country wherein they will fight against the fascist forces which are taking the country in a state of lawlessness.

A video where a man talking in Urdu is referring to the demolition of Babri masjid and encouraging the Muslim community to take control over the judiciary, police force, health department, and other professions by increasing Muslim representation is massively viral on social media. It has been shared with the claim that the man is the owner of the Himalaya Drug Company.
The video has been circulated with messages advising against the use of Himalaya products.
Several users posted the video on Facebook and Twitter.
Alt News has received several fact-check requests for this video on its official mobile application.
Alt News used InVid to break down the video into several frames. We reverse searched one of the frames on Yandex and found another YouTube video featuring the same man. The video identified him in Urdu which translates to Naqi Ahmed Nadwi.
Searching for his name led us to his social media profiles. We found the same video posted on August 6, 2020, on Naqi Ahmed Nadwi’s Facebook page with an Urdu caption بابری مسجد کا انہدام اوراسکی جگہ پر رام مندر کا قیام تاریخ ہند کا ایک ایسا موڑ ہے جس کے بارے میں مسلمانوں کو سنجیدگی سے غور کرنا ہوگا! (The demolition of the Babri Masjid and the erection of the Ram Temple on its site is a turning point in the history of India which Muslims must seriously consider!)
The founder of Himalaya Drug Company is Mohammad Manal who passed away in 1986. The incumbent President and CEO is Philipe Haydon. The company tweeted a fact-check report debunking the video in question on September 27.
This isn’t the first time that the multinational company was targetted with misinformation on social media. Earlier in March, a false claim suggested that its founder funds terrorists.
