Deoband (UP), 28 May
A prominent Deoband-based Muslim body on Saturday accused the BJP government of protecting people engaged in poisoning the minds of the majority community in the country.
Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind made the allegation, expressing concern over the alleged spread of communalism and saying the government is keeping an eye on people spreading hatred against the minority community in various gatherings.
He stated that the unity of the country has been hindered in the name of “false nationalism”, which is dangerous not only for Muslims, but for the entire country.
Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, in a meeting of its management committee, also passed a resolution urging the Center to “immediately stop the activities of such elements, spreading communalism and messages which are not only against to Muslims and Islam, but all people who believe in democracy, justice and equality.”
The resolution declared that “the country is burning in a fire of religious animosity and hatred”.
An effort is being made to incite the people of the country against each other, he said.
He stated that an effort to trigger this “black storm of communalism” is under the protection of the current ruling party and the government, leaving no stone unturned to poison the minds of the majority community of the country
He said: “Obscene and baseless accusations are being spread against Muslims, former Muslim leaders and Islamic culture and civilization.” “The relevant governments, on the other hand, are encouraging such people by either siding with them or letting them roam free instead of taking legal action against them,” the Muslim body said in its resolution.
Spreading communal hatred and inciting the religious sentiments of the majority community against the minorities with a motive to continue their political hegemony are not only against the loyalty and interest of the country , but an open enmity with him,” said the resolution.
“If the fascist bodies in the country feel that the Muslim community will surrender before this oppression, they are sadly mistaken,” he added.
