RSS , Jamaat e Islami condole former President Pranab Mukherjee’s death

By Muslim Mirror

New Delhi :  Condoling the demise of former President Pranab Mukherjee, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Monday described him as a “guide” for the Sangh and said he didn”t believe in political untouchability.

Mukherjee was an able administrator who kept national interest supreme, Bhagwat said in a joint statement along with RSS general secretary Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi.

Mukherjee didn”t practice political untouchability and was respected by all parties, the statement said.

“He was a guide for Sangh and was affectionate towards the organisation and his passing away is irreparable loss to the RSS,” it added.

Mukherjee was attacked by the Congress itself in June 2018 for attending an event of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh the ideological mentor of the ruling BJP.

But later, the Congress was all appreciation after Mukherjee in his speech emphasised that the soul of India is pluralism, tolerance and inclusion.

In his speech, Mukherjee had warned that any attempt to define India through “religion, hatred, dogmas and intolerance” will dilute our existence and said public discourses must be freed of all forms of violence.

Mukherjee”s message to hundreds of ”pracharaks” and top-brass of the RSS, which is often described as a Hindu right-wing organisation, was described as a ”mirror of truth to the RSS” by the Congress, whose several leaders had earlier been critical of his decision to attend the event here at the Sangh headquarters.

Jamaat e Islam Hind, India’s prominent Muslim organization has also expressed deep condolences  over the death of Mukherjee. “We are saddened by the death of Shri Pranab Mukherjee, former President of India. Deep condolences from Jamaat-e-Islami Hind”  wrote its chief  Syed Sadatullah Hussaini  on the  official Facebook page organization.

“We remember his advice to the nation .We must move from violence anger and conflict to peace , harmony and happiness.Our country deserve that.” he added.

Mukherjee, 84, passed away in an army hospital here.
