Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind slams Bhagwat’s ‘all Indians are Hindus’ remark

New Delhi : Prominent Muslim organisation Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind on Monday hit out at RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat for his “all Indians are Hindus” remark, alleging that it was clear from such statements that Sangh leaders do not want communal harmony and were going back on their word on promoting mutual understanding.

He expressed his anger at the prevalent atmosphere of hatred in the country. He said Muslims are being targeted as has happened recently in Haryana’s Nuh and in other places.

The RSS, Arshad Madani said, has backtracked from its commitment to promote peace, harmony and love between Hindus and Muslims in India.

He said in his talks with Mohan Bhagwat it was given to understand that the RSS would promote mutual understanding and resolve misunderstandings in the country. “The RSS does not stick to any of the promises,” he said.

Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind also fully supports the INDIA alliance, Arshad Madani said adding that political change is necessary to end the atmosphere of hatred in the country. If opposition parties are not united, their very existence will be in danger, he said.

“The way communal forces were defeated in Karnataka, it is necessary to do it at the national level as well,” he said.

The Jamiat chief also issued relief checks of Rs 40 lakh for the 200 hawkers and street vendors affected by Nuh violence.

Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, he said, has been taking the lead in relief and welfare work from day one. “It has never done this work on the basis of religion but on the basis of humanity, and this process is still ongoing. Be it social issues, community issues, or national issues, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has offered its services on the basis of humanity at every step. Whether it is a case of natural calamities like earthquakes and floods, victims of communal riots, the legal battle of innocent people, or the issue of Assamese citizenship, we feel it our social responsibility to extend our hands and provide timely help to all, rehabilitate them, heal their wounds. This same tradition is also being maintained in Nuh, and the victims are being helped regardless of religion, caste, and creed.

Citing the example of peace during the Hindu yatra in Nuh on August 28, he said it proves once again that if the administration and the police perform their duty honestly, there can never be a riot.

Maulana Madani also condemned targeting of places of worship by miscreants during the riots, saying that this is not the teaching of any religion. “Those who use religion to incite hatred and violence cannot be true followers of their religion,” he said. ( With PTI inputs )
