“Those who oppose, question or do not accept the Sharia or Islam, we will explain these things to them also. If they still are not convinced, then they will be ex-communicated from the religion and not be considered as Muslims.”
Comparable declarations saying that jihad terrorists will be excommunicated and not be considered Muslims have been rare, at best.

It also said that those opposing the Sharia within the community will be considered non-Muslims.
“We will start this programme in Hyderabad and conduct it across south India. The Supreme Court’s ruling has opened the door for interference in our religion,” said Mushtaq Mallik, president, Muslim Shabban Tahreek, while addressing a press conference.
