In his leaked videos in which Zaid Hamid admited his links with Yusuf Kazab and defended him, Zaid Hamid claimed that Moulana Abdur Rehman Ashrafi – a very renowned scholar of his time, went to Hajj with Yusuf Kazab. Zaid Hamid further stated that Moulana Ashrafi defended Yusuf Kazab for as long as Yusuf Kazab was alive.
Moulana Abdur Rehman Ashrafi, who alhamdolillah is still alive today, has categorically rejected any affiliation with Yusuf Kazab or Zaid Hamid. In addition to this Moulana Ashrafi has stated that he was never against Aalami Majlise Tahafuze Khatam e Nabuwat and that he never criticized the Ulema of Aalami Majlise Tahafuze Khatam e Nabuwat.
Moulana Abdur Rehman Ashrafi’s statement has been published by Dar ul Uloom Ashrafia on their own website.
