Supreme court dismisses petition to remove some verses from Quran

Date: 13 April 2021 Tags: Judiciary & Judgments
  • The Supreme Court has dismissed a PIL which sought deletion of 26 verses from the Quran alleging that they violate the law of the land and promote extremism.
  • The bench also imposed costs of ?. 50,000 on the petitioner Syed Waseem Rizvi, a former chairperson of Shia Central Board of Waqf, Uttar Pradesh.
  • The PIL alleged that the 26 verses “promote violence”, and were not part of the original Quran, but were added in later revisions, and should hence be removed from the holy book.
  • Rizvi’s move to file the petition in the top court drew a massive backlash from several Islamic clerics and organisations in Uttar Pradesh.
