This refers to the scuffle between mediapersons and the supporters of the Shahi Imam of the Jama Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari, outside the Prime Minister's residence. The behaviour of the Imam and his supporters was highly objectionable, and insulting to the entire Muslim community.
M. Shamsul Arifin,
The behaviour of the Shahi Imam is born out of arrogance emanating from his delusion of being the messiah of the entire Muslim community. His atrocious behaviour deserves to be condemned.
It is not expected of a religious head to lose patience on the slightest provocation. It is the job of mediapersons to provoke people into answering their queries. The Imam's behaviour presented him in a poor light. He should apologise for his indecent behaviour. So should the mediaperson, who is reported to have used impolite language.
