A group of Mujahid activists, arrested from North Paravur of Kerala for distributing pamphlets allegedly criticising polytheism, have been granted bail on Friday.
Ernakulam Principal Sessions Court granted bail to the thirty-seven ‘Wisdom Global Islamic Mission’ workers who were arrested on Sunday following a scuffle with RSS workers.
The scuffle between Mujahid activists and RSS workers started on Sunday after the former distributed pamphlets allegedly denigrating another religion in Moothakunnam and Vadakkekara area near North Paravur.
The group was badly manhandled by the RSS group accusing them of creating communal tensions.
According to reports, police refused to take RSS workers into the custody though they thrashed the Mujahid activists before calling police.
However, seven BJP-RSS activists were taken into custody on the other day after the police move came under severe criticism.
The pamphlets distributed by the group titled, ‘‘Vimochanathinte Vazhi’ (Path of Liberation) allegedly contained material condemning polytheism, a belief considered to be sin by Islam.
The pamphlet ends with inviting people to embrace Islam apart from speaking against terrorism and fundamentalism.
The incident came to light when RSS local leaders stopped the activists from distributing the pamphlets which led to a scuffle in the area.
However, Wisdom Global Islamic Mission denied propagating communal hatred through the booklets. They said three pamphlets - Jeevitham Enthinu Vendi, IS Mathanishidham Manava Virudham and Ore Oru India Otta Janatha - contain no remarks inciting religious hatred.
Earlier, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had condemned the act of Mujahid workers who distributed controversial pamphlets in non-Muslim homes.
He also pointed out that such acts will create circumstances for RSS to inject their poisonous ideology into the Hindus.
