Muslims, Christians uncomfortable in Modi
regime: Muslim Personal Law Board.
Jaipur: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board on Sunday
launched a frontal attack on the Narendra Modi government
and announced a nationwide campaign to counter right wing
forces, accusing Hindu organisations like the RSS of hatching
a "conspiracy" to convert the country into a "fascist state".
At the end of its two-day convention here, the board said that
its 'Defend Constitutional Rights Committee' will run a
campaign to build a sense of confidence among minorities.
"We are concerned about the situation in the country which
has worsened after Narendra Modi became Prime Minister.
Not only Muslims, but Christians are also feeling
uncomfortable," the board's assistant general secretary Abdul
Rahim Qureshi said at a press conference here.
In a resolution, the board said that right wing forces have
become "active against the minorities after the formation of
new government at the Centre."
"The resolution was passed by the board members in the
national convention which seeks support of people against the
conspiracy of Hindu organisations like RSS to take the country
in direction of fascist state from a secular democracy,"
Qureshi said.
"Hindutva forces are encouraged and have become more
active after the formation of the NDA government," he said.
Qureshi alleged that VHP leaders Ashok Singhal, Praveen
Togadia and Sadhvi Prachi "spit venom" against minorities but
no action is taken.
"Hindu outfits are carrying out programmes like ghar wapsi.
"RSS and VHP leaders spit venom not only against Muslims
but Christians also. This is a conspiracy to divide sections of
the society and we have sought support of all the Muslims as
well as Hindus against the propaganda in the resolution," he
If the right wing forces persisted with their agenda against the
minorities, it will result in "anarchy" in the country, he said.
Qureshi claimed that the Prime Minister has not yet said
anything on the 'ghar wapsi' issue.
Over 250 members of the body had gathered in Jaipur for their
annual general body meeting.

जयपुर [जासं]। मुसलमानों की सर्वोच्च संस्था आॅल इंडिया मुस्लिम पर्सनल लॉ बोर्ड का मानना है कि केंद्र में नरेंद्र मोदी की सरकार बनने के बाद से हिंदूवादी ताकतों के हौंसले बुलंद हो रहे है और मुसलमान परेशानी महसूस कर रहे हैं।
बोर्ड का मानना है कि मोदी सरकार बनने के बाद ही घर वापसी के कार्यक्रम शुरू हुए। विहिप और संघ के नेता मुसलमानों के खिलाफ जहर उगल रहे हैं। मुसलमानों के खिलाफ सार्वजनिक बयानबाजी करने वाले विहिप नेता अशोक सिंघल, प्रवीण तोगडि़या, साध्वी प्राची और संघ के पदाधिकारियों के खिलाफ कोई कार्रवाई नहीं होने से मुस्लिम समाज में नाराजगी है।
जयपुर में हो रही दो दिवसीय कांफ्रेंस में पारित किए गए प्रस्तावों की जानकारी देते हुए बोर्ड के सचिव मो. अब्दुल कुरैशी और जफरयाब जिलानी ने बताया कि अपनी मांगों को लेकर फिलहाल प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी से मिलने का कोई विचार नहीं है और ना इसके लिए कोई मध्यस्थ है, यदि जरूरत पड़ेगी तो मिलेंगे।
दोनों नेताओं का मानना है कि बाबरी मस्जिद मामले का हल अब सुप्रीम कोर्ट से ही होगा, बातचीत से हल संभव नहीं है। बोर्ड के प्रतिनिधियों ने राजस्थान, मध्य प्रदेश और हरियाणा सरकारों की ओर स्कूलों में सूर्य नमस्कार एवं योग को अनिवार्य करने की आलोचना करते हुए कहा कि तीनों राज्यों की सरकार इस आदेश का वापस ले, कोई भी मुसलमान इसे पसंद नहीं कर रहा।
