Rajya Sabha on Friday witnessed noisy scenes over the reported remarks of Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid.

The Imam was quoted as saying that he is an ISI agent even as he dared the Government to take action against him. He has also blamed the Indian agencies for the Chhatisinghpora massacre of the Sikhs. The matter was raised by BJP member S.S. Ahluwalia who said that the Imam's remarks were a challenge to all the Indians. Mr Ahluwalia said the religious head was harming the interests of the Muslims by making such remarks.

At this, a Congress member sought to clarify that treating the Shahi Imam as representative of the Muslim community was wrong.
