Tomb Worshipers Say: Don't Vote For Deobandis.

Al Salamu 'Alaykum.

Elections in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh are around the corner. Muslims constitute 18% of the population of UP and are a very important factor in deciding who will win the elections. All secular political parties are trying to woo the Muslims, particularly the Deobandis. No one is looking at the Quburis. Smarting from this insult, a Barelwi body called the AIUMB (ALL INDIA UNION OF THE MENTALLY BLUNTED) has launched a campaign asking tomb worshipers in the state to vote against Deobandi candidates. The chief of this body is someone called Ashraf Kichkichwee (or whatever) who apparently sits at some Dargah. 
No political party in the state has taken the threat of the Ahl Halwa Puri seriously.

Wa 'Alaykum Salam.
