Following is the summary (all not his exact words) of what Ayatollah Javadee Amulee (Hafazah-uL-LAH) said during his lecture about ‘Tahreef-e-Quraan’:
“The Holy Quran is protected from any alteration, and is our hands without any addition or deduction (due to many arguments established by him).
Neither the Sunnis have any right to say that Shias believe its contents were changed, nor the Shias have any right to do this with respect to Sunnis. Because the highest ranking scholars and researchers of both the sects, strongly reject this view and only a few, from both the sides, have said otherwise. And if this discussion or exchanges of accusations continue, the one thing in danger would be the Holy Quran’s authority itself, and if this happens it will leave the religion empty handed ’cause the most basic source of Islam is Al-Quran Al-Kareem”.
Any one who believes that there has been an addition, omission or interpolation in the Qur'an is indeed misguided, and if he persists in that belief, he commits a sin by dishonouring the word of Allah. Scholars of both Sunni and Shia schools have written about the change having occurred. They have been critically studied and their errors have been made manifest. Asgharali M M Jaffer
The Shi`ah ‘ulama’ and maraji’ al-taqlid generally reject the belief in tahrif. The works that have been written on this subject are so many that mentioning them is not an easy task and would need a separate section. Now, for the sake of information, it will suffice to mention some of them below:
1. Ayatullah Riya’ ad-Din Araki, Al-Usul, vol. 3, p. 93;
2. Ayatullah Musawi Bujnurdi, Muntahi’l-Usul, vol. 2, p. 81;
3. Firuzabadi, ‘Inayah al-Usul, vol. 3, p. 120; and
4. Akhund Khurasani, Kifayah al-Usul, vol. 2, p. 63.
Ayatullah al-’Uzma Sayyid Abu’l-Qasim al-Khu’i says in this regard: Tahrif of the Qur’an in the sense of the deletion of some of its verses or words is a fictitious affair as there is no truth in it.
