Sunni Students' Federation to target Salafis, Jamaat-e-Islami on Islamic State


MALAPPURAM: Taking a dig at Jamaat-e-Islami and Salafi organisations, the student's wing of the Sunni faction led by Kanthapuram A.P. Aboobacker Musliyar has launched a campaign seeking to expose the alleged connections of the Salafi and Jamaat founding leaders with the concept of Islamic State and extreme religious views. The Sunni Students' Federation (SSF) has launched the drive with public conferences in five major cities including Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam and selected cities of Malabar districts besides a state wide campaign named Sauhruda Kaalam which will be concluded on October 20.

"Our campaign seeks to expose how the onslaught of Salafism cracked the camaraderie within Muslim community and others who tried to build an Islamic State in India," says M.A Majeed Ariyalloor, state general secretary of SSF. "Both parties have shunned the traditional Muslims who stand for pluralism." Special seminars which are meant to depict the true picture popular comradeships of historical personalities of various communities who propagated communal amity will also be organised in all districts.

"The history of the friendship between Mamburam Sayed Alavi Thangal, a sufi saint and Konthu Nair, a philanthropist during early British era, will be the subject matter of a seminar slated to be held in Tirurangadi next month," he said. The latest edition of Risala, the mouthpiece of the SFF, has carried a cover story which exposes connections of Jamathe Islami founder in Kerala Haji Sahib's connections with the concept of Islamic State.

"Haji Sahib left for Islamic State constituted by Abul Ala Maududi, founder of Jamathe Islami, in Pathankot and wrote to his friend back in Manjeri that this was the true Islamic state and Maududi was the Khalifa," the article in the weekly reads. The weekly also quotes many striking revelations from a book Islamika Prasthanam; Munnil Nadannavar written by Sheik Muhammed Karakkunnu, the assistant ameer of Jamaat-e-Islami.
