Former chief of UP Shia Central Waqf Board, Waseem Rizvi’s petition in the Supreme Court seeking scrapping of 26 verses from the Quran has triggered a storm, he says-

“These verses were added to the Quran, by the first three Caliphs, to aid the expansion of Islam by war”, the former chairman of the Shia Waqf Board has said in his plea, according to reports. Rizvi wrote in the petition that “after Mohammad, the first Caliphs Hazrat Abu Bakr, the second Caliphs Hazrat Umar and the third namely Hazrat Usman released the Quran as a book, based on the oral preaching of Mohammad Sahab. This was passed on from generation to generation.”

The PLI petition [WRIT PETITION (C) NO. 401/2021] was dismissed without citing any reason at the point of admission on 12-Apr-2021 by the Apex court.[Read below]. The court also rejected his review petition by saying …

“Permission to appear and argue in-person is rejected. Having carefully gone through the Review Petition, the order under challenge and the papers annexed therewith, we are satisfied that there is no error apparent on the face of the record, warranting reconsideration of the order impugned.

The Review Petition [REVIEW PETITION (C) NO. 468/2021] is, accordingly, dismissed”. on 2021.07.22.

Verse 101:

And when you travel throughout the land, there is no blame upon you for shortening the prayer, if you fear that those who disbelieve may  attack you. Indeed, the disbelievers are ever to you a clear enemy.[5]

Surah 5 (Al-Ma’idah)

Verse 14:

Verse 51:

Fight against those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth [i.e., Islām] from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah1 willingly while they are humbled.[15]

Indeed, the postponing of restriction within sacred months] is an increase in disbelief by which those who have disbelieved are led further astray.

Made pleasing to them is the evil of their deeds; and Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.[16]
