Waseem Rizvi, the former Shia Waqf Board Chairman for the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (UP), had submitted a petition in the Indian Supreme Court seeking the removal of 26 verses from the holy book.

The petition alleged that these verses “promote terrorism, violence, jihad” and were “not part of the original Qur’an but added at a later stage.”

“These verses were added to the Qur’an, by the first three caliphs, to aid the expansion of Islam by war,” Rizvi alleged.

Waseem Rizvi filed the Public Interest Litigation in the Indian Supreme Court on Thursday.

Shias and Sunnis unite in protest against Rizvi’s comments.

Among many, the General Secretary of the All India Muslim Personal Law (AIMPLB), Maulana Wali Rahmani, came down heavily on Rizvi and called his plea a ‘publicity stunt.’

On Sunday, the Muslims held a demonstration in Lucknow, the capital of UP, against Waseem Rizvi.

Maulana Kalbe Jawwad, a Shia cleric and the General Secretary of Majlis-e-Ulama-e-Hind, along with many people, took part in the demonstration at the Bara Imambara.

Addressing the rally that day, Maulana Syed Salman Hasni Nadvi laid emphasis on Muslim unity and described Waseem Rizvi as a “kaafir (disbeliever)” and a “mujrim (criminal).”

“We’re believers of Allah and His Book first, Shia and Sunni later. Hence, there’s no difference among us as far as the Qur’an is concerned,” Nadvi had then said.

Maulana Kalbe Jawwad had told reporters that Rizvi was a part of the “jamaat (group)” that goes to the extent of falsifying their existence and betraying their own religion.

In Bareilly, Mufti Ahsan Raza Qadri of the Dargah-e-Aala Hazrat, a prominent center of Barelvi Muslims, condemned Waseem Rizvi’s move and remarked not even an iota of change in the Qur’an is possible.

In a statement, he had remarked, “Waseem Rizvi is an enemy of the Qur’an and Islam. He’s doing this to gather cheap popularity and to save himself from the Waqf scam.”

Was the Qur’an changed? / Can it be changed?

If in the Quran it says no one can change Allah's words Q6:115, how can Muslims say the Gospels or Injil were corrupted? - Quora

It is not possible for a Muslim to entertain uncertainties or doubts concerning the immutability of the Qur’an because Allah has guaranteed to preserve the Qur’an.

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“Verily, it is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e., the Qur’an), and surely, We will guard it (from corruption)” [Surah al-Hijr 15:9]
