Khadim Gauhar Chishti of Ajmer Dargah to be produced in court today over statement against Nupur Sharma

Jaipur: Ajmer Dargah Khadim Gauhar Chishti, who escaped after raising objectionable slogans against former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma, will be produced in the court on Friday. Chishti was arrested in Telangana’s Hyderabad on Thursday and brought to Ajmer under heavy security from the Jaipur airport.

Gauhar Chishti and his associate Munawwar were taken to Kishanganj police station in Ajmer and will be produced in the court.

Ajmer Additional SP Vikas Sangwan said, “Gauhar Chishti was arrested by the police from Hyderabad, Telangana. He raised objectionable slogans outside the dargah on June 17.” Gauhar Chishti and his associate were brought from Hyderabad to Jaipur airport.

In a video, the cleric was purportedly seen raising slogans in the Ajmer Sharif Dargah complex. Three Khadim (clerics) of the dargah Gauhar Chishti, Adil Chishti and Sarwar Chishti have given provocative statements against Nupur Sharma.

The provocative statements of clerics against suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma have led to a drop in the number of devotees in Ajmer, which has also affected the business of local vendors and hotels near the Sufi dargah.

Khadim Syed Sarwar Chishti of Ajmer Sharif Dargah had courted controversy with his provocative remarks, his son Syed Adil Chishti’s highly objectionable and derogatory remarks against Hindu deities.

In a video clip, Adil Chishti can be heard making derogatory remarks against Hindu deities.

His statement comes against the backdrop of now-suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma’s remarks on Prophet Mohammad, which led to widespread violent protests across the country and condemnation from some Gulf countries as well.

A few days ago, Anjuman Committee secretary Sarwar Chishti had warned of a movement that would “shake India”. He had said that if Prophet Mohammad was insulted then Muslims would start a movement which would shake India.

However, Sarwar Chishti appeared in a peace rally organized by religious leaders in Rajasthan on Tuesday. He also appealed to Hindus and Muslims to live together in peace.

Sarwar Chishti said, “It is my desire to see peace and harmony in the country. I want the people of both the communities to live in peace and harmony.”

Gauhar Chishti is the nephew of Sarwar Chishti. He raised the slogan ‘Sar Tan Se Juda’ outside Ajmer Sharif Dargah.
