Maulana Mahmood Madani has said that Muslims should not vote to defeat any particular party because it is strategically wrong.
“Muslims are a big part of the society in this country. If they decide to defeat any particular party in any case then it is strategically wrong. Because, the one we decide to defeat will not need us and the one we have to make victorious will also not need us,” he said in an interview with Aaj Tak, a Hindi-language news channel on Monday.
Maualana Madani, who is president of the Mahmood faction of Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, said Muslims can vote for the BJP if they want. He further said that even the BJP should not have a problem to approach Muslims. He added that he wants the BJP to act against hate speeches and hate crimes against Muslims.
Speaking about All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), he said that he has no problem with people voting for Owaisi as well.
Maulana Madani criticised Samajwadi Party cheif Akhilesh in connection with his remark on Mohammad Ali Jinnah. He said that the Indian Muslim rejected Jinnah’s idea and chose India over Pakistan.
