Muslim Educational Society President Receives Death Threat From International Number Over ‘Burqa Ban’ Circular




May 07, 2019
The president of the Muslim Educational Society (MES), P A Fazal Gafoor has received a death threat over a phone call for the body’s decision to impose a ban on face veil in colleges and schools under its ambit, reports The News Minute.

The person who called Gafoor threatened him with serious consequences if the circular placing a ban on the face veil was not withdrawn. As the call was made through an international number, it is possible that the caller may have been based in the Gulf.

A police complaint has been filed over the matter, although a formal case is yet to be registered.

“I received a phone call from a mobile on Friday, threatening to kill me. It was a male voice and he used very harsh, threatening and demeaning words on me,” Gafoor stated in his complaint.

He added that the caller sounded extremely agitated over the circular.

The MES had issued a circular on 2 May stating that students would not be allowed to enter education institutions run by it covering their faces.

The move triggered a huge backlash by orthodox Muslim organisations who termed the circular ‘un-Islamic’.

On the other hand, Gafoor contends that the practice of covering the face was a relatively recent phenomenon, and had not previously existed in the state.
