In occupied Kashmir, the President of Muslim Deeni Mahaz (MDM), Dr. Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo has denounced that Muslims and Dalits are being persecuted in India ever since Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) came into power in India.
Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo, who is in jail, in a statement issued in Srinagar said, Muslims are living in a constant fear and the Indian hyper-nationalism has overwhelmed the country’s politics, economy, society, education and media. “But this is only one aspect of this scenario. This has proved it again that no country in the world can truly be secular even if its constitution is secular,” he said.
“RSS is sincere about Hinduism and Hindu India and doesn’t deceive people by secularism. India has been a Hindu Rashtra in the past, continues to be so, and will be the same in future as well.”
He said that Indian government followed the religion of the majority and Hindu extremist RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat did not hesitate to admit that.
“The way the Hindu majority in India rewarded the executer of Gujarat pogrom Narendra Modi by electing him as the prime minister of India shows the thinking trends in Hindu India. Modi has also lived up to the expectations of Hindu majority by forming a Muslim free government,” he said.
Qasim said India has evolved as a Hindu Rashtra in the world and thus the political vision of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan and Muhammad Ali Jinnah has been proved right. He also condemned the excesses being meted out to Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir under the rule of PDP and RSS.—KMS
