Malegaon: Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) party chief Nitin Gadkari accused the Congress of implicating Muslim youth in false terror cases and blamed the police of doing greatest harm to the Muslims, Kuldip Nayar, an ex-parliamentarian and senior journalist, claimed in his recently published article.


“And see what is happening? They pick up some boys from among the Muslim youth and dub them as terrorists. Certain crimes are framed against them so that a particular act of terrorism had ready-made perpetrators. What choice do the poor Muslims have?", Nayar quoted BJP president Gadkari as saying during what he termed as 'an accidental' meeting.


"The Congress had done little for the Muslims either in the field of education, health or employment. It has used them only as a vote bank", Nayar wrote Gadkari as reiterating.


“It is a party of manipulators and conspirators and it was the Congress which had divided the country into secular and non-secular parts", Nayar quoted Gadkari as saying.


"The police has done the greatest harm to the community by filing false cases against them", added Gadkari, according to Nayar.


Stating that the BJP is not against the Muslims, Gadkari blamed the media of spreading the impression that the party is anti-Muslims.


“You people have spread the impression that we are anti-Muslim. The Hindutva does not mean hostility towards Islam. Our priority is nationalism", Nayar quoted the BJP president while admitting that the BJP would need to get the Muslim vote if it wanted to obtain a majority.


Nayar wrote, the BJP chief also wanted best of relations with Pakistan.


“I have told the Pakistanis that both of us should live peacefully as neighbours and jointly fight against poverty. They are wasting money on buying weapons and so on. Imagine the crop the two countries can reap if the money is diverted towards ploughs, tools and technology, instead of guns, tanks and ammunition,” Nayar quoted Gadkari as saying.


The Muslim community leaders and secular activists have long been accusing the Indian investigating agencies of framing Muslim youth in terror cases. In one of the such recent cases, the investigating agencies had charged Muslim youth of executing bomb blast inside a Malegaon mosque. Later investigations however suggested involvement of a Hindu extremist group in the case.
