A Muslim cleric on Monday issued a fatwa against Dilip Ghosh, who is the current president of the West Bengal unit of the BJP for making derogatory remarks against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
Imam of Tipu Sultan Mosque, Syed Mohammad Nurur Rahman Barkati,who has issued the fatwa has said that he was doing so because Ghosh made “filthy” remarks against Mamata Banerjee. HE further said that Ghosh should be pelted with stones and kicked out of West Bengal for making such comments.
Just after the fatwa was released, Dilip Ghosh said that it was not Pakistan and to show the Fatwa to Mamata Banerjee instead.
“Is this Pakistan? Fatwas don’t work here. Show Fatwa to Mamata Banerjee,” Dilip Ghosh told ANI.
Dilip Ghosh had earlier lashed out the West Bengal Chief Minister saying that his party could have “dragged her by hair” by his police if he wanted to do so when she was protesting in Delhi.
To this. TMC’s Derek O’Brien had responded saying that politics had reached a new low.
Dilip Ghosh had also alleged that Mamata Banerjee was protesting against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes because she had “lost” her mind after loosing a lot of money.
Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee has staged a protest against the demonetisation drive since the time PM Modi announced the move. She even went on to compare the move to an “emergency like” situation.
