Word 'Mujahid' should not be linked with terrorism: Srinagar Deputy Mayor

By Sheikh Qayoom

Srinagar: Sheikh Muhammad Imran, the Deputy Mayor of Srinagar, said on Saturday that the word ‘Mujahid’ is often used in a negative sense and appealed to the people to prefix the word to their names to highlight its actual meaning.

In a statement here today, Sheikh Muhammad Imran said: “Mujahid means a holy warrior who fights against evil and stands for truthfulness.”

“By its true meaning, Mujahid is someone who fights against everything that is bad and evil. The word is now used to denote terrorism which is not what the true meaning of the word is.

“I have decided to prefix the word Mujahid’ to my name from today and I request every Muslim to do so.

“By doing so, we will be bringing out the true meaning of the word and also fighting against its misuse,” he added.
