After a fatwa was issued against Janata Dal-United leader Firoz Ahmad for saying ‘Jai Shri Ram’ by the Mufti of Imarat Shariah in Patna, the Muslim leader on Sunday affirmed that he stands firm on his words, as he believes in humanity and serving people of Bihar.”If saying ‘Jai Shri Ram’ is important for the country, then I would not stop myself from saying it. I was not just elected to serve the Muslim community. My duty is to serve the public of Bihar, irrespective of their cast, creed and religion”, Ahmad told.  Ahmad asserted that his religion cannot be questioned based on the phrase ‘Jai Shri Ram’. “Islam teaches you to love all.

I don’t have anything to lose. I am would only be afraid, if I am unable to fulfill my responsibilities towards the public of Bihar”, he said.   The Rediff.com : 30th. July,17
