Woman Threatened For Trying To Interpret Quran

From Deccan-Chronicle:
Jamithabeevi, general secretary of Quran Sunnath Society, has alleged that she was being threatened by extremist forces in the Muslim community for her progressive stance in teaching Quran. In a petition submitted to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday, she said  that the rural police had failed to take action against the culprits.

“On December 22, some people with links to  extremist forces, trespassed into my house and threatened me. I gave a written complaint to the Koyilandy SI.  However, no action was taken. On the next day, a complaint was forwarded to the state police chief through the Yuktivadi Sangh. I am worried that the fate of Chekannur Moulavi, who tried to interpret Quran for the good of the society, is awaiting  me also,” said Ms Jamithabeevi.

She said that the clergy want to interpret Quran in their own way so that  society remains  divided, which is not the aim of the Holy Book. “Quran gives equal rights to the people and when the clergy could not defeat  Moulavi’s ideologies, they killed him for interpreting Quran,” she added. A native of Thiruvananthapuram, she had recently shifted to Kappad.
