An observation by Mawlana ‘Ashiq Ilahi


Mufti Muhammad ‘Ashiq Ilahi Bulandsheri stated in his book “A moment of reflection for the Barelwi scholars and imams” the following observation about Barelwi laymen:

“According to the Barelwi masses, the meaning of being a Sunni means only that you do not become a Deobandi, call Deobandis unbelievers, no matter how many bad deeds you may perform. This attitude of the Barelwi laymen is the consequence of the silence and shallowness [mudahanat] of the Barelwi scholars and imams.”
