Here in this picture is Imraan Moosa, Al-Jama-ah Party’s councillor, posing with the idol of Ghandi. In the other picture, he stands next to a Hindu lady while he is making an offering of flowers to the idol of Ghandi.
Are these actions of Imraan Moosa permissible? Is it permissible to vote for him?
One is not in need of much intelligence to understand that Imraan Moosa’s acts perpetrated at the idol of Ghandi are shirk and kufr. By having perpetrated these heinous acts of shirk aggravated with fisq and fujoor, Imraan Moosa has lost his Imaan.
In order to return to the fold of Islam, he has to repent and renew his Imaan. While voting for kuffaar candidates is also haraam, voting for Imraan Moosa is an aggravated haraam act. Muslims should not vote for him. Voting for him will be explicit condonation of his acts of fisq, fujoor and shirk.
It is inconceivable for a Muslim to make an offering to a stone-statute-idol. This type of shirk is nowadays perpetrated by ‘muslim’ politicians. Their politics have greater importance and priority than their Imaan and the Deen. This attitude reveals the kufr lurking in their hearts.
It is imperative for Al Jama-ah Party to axe Imraan Moosa. Alternatively, Imraan Moosa should publically acknowledge his grievous and egregious blunder, make Taubah and renew his Imaan.
