Maulana Arshad Madani, the President of the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, has suggested that Muslims living in Uttarakhand, especially those from the plains, should return to their native places if the situation in the region worsens.
“Many of the Muslims residing in Uttarakhand are originally from the plains of India, including places like Bijnor and Saharanpur, and they have built homes in Dehradun and other areas. If circumstances arise where living there becomes challenging, it would be advisable for them to return to their hometowns,” stated Maulana Arshad Madani, President of the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind.

“Despite having established businesses there for several years, it would be advisable for them to leave their businesses behind and start anew by returning to their native places. The mindset and ideology of sectarian forces cannot be changed,” he said.
Madani expressed that the government and sectarian parties are deliberately spreading hatred in the country as a means to “punish” Muslims.
“It is undoubtedly unfair, but what can be done? This is their policy, and they adhere to such an ideology to safeguard their positions of power,” he said.
Madani further mentioned that the party had dispatched a delegation to meet with the Chief Minister of the state.
“The Chief Minister assured us that such measures would not be taken,” he stated.
Madani emphasized the need for the government to provide assistance and support to the individuals who were displaced or evicted from the state.
“If the government fails to create an environment where people can live peacefully, it will convey a message that the BJP and the government hold an anti-Muslim stance,” he said.
Madani added that implementing such policies would not be advantageous for the BJP government.
