Shazia Ilmi, the leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has reacted angrily to Shahi Imam of Ahmedabad's Jama Masjid, Shabbir Ahmed Siddiqui's remark, in which he said that giving election tickets to Muslim women is nullifying Islam and fueling a new revolt.Ilmi also accused him of trying to create his own version of Islam earlier Sunday.Is there no man left?BJP leader Ilmi gave an example of several female Muslim leaders around the world who held political positions over a long period of time.It's strange that someone is saying that Muslim women should not seek seats.Does he not want women's political participation?Does he know anything about his own religion?Ilmi says in a self-made video that many Muslim women have been leaders of their respective states, Presidents, and Prime Ministers over a period of time.Ilmi cited her own example of offering Namaz in Ahmedabad, according to Shahi Imams, who stated that there is a reason why women arent allowed to offer Namaz in the open. At Al-Aqsa mosque (Jerusalem), I have myself prepared namaz.I don't know which sect you're talking about.You seem to be trying to create your own version of Islam.According to Ilmi, this religion is for women as much as it is for men. Have you seen any women offering Namaz in public?Ahmed said that if it was natural in Islam for women to come out in public and offer Namaz, they wouldnt have been stopped, as Ahmed said in his address.The votes will be counted on December 8.
