Interfaith dialogue to strengthen the world peace and stability, Al-Turki

Lucknow: Let me clarify at the very outset three important issues related to  ‘Vande Matram’ controversy, which is raised at a time when it was not at all being discussed.


Firstly that this song is completely Un-Islamic, secondly that Jamiatul-Ulema has always been the stooge of Congress, and thirdly the sound health of ‘Hindutwa forces’ is a pre-requisite condition for the so-called secular parties to entice Muslim community on emotional issues, so that it may throw its legitimate demands into oblivion.


The stronger the Hindutwa forces, the greater prospects for Congress and other so-called secular outfits to capture Muslims through the false slogans of  ‘secularism’.


If our memory is not too weak, we may recollect that a few years back the then H.R.D. Minister Mr. Arjun Singh was the person who declared that the centenary of  ‘Vande Matram’ would be celebrated with its singing in all institutions.


As expected, the Muslims reacted aggressively, giving an opportunity to Hindutwa forces to spew venom against the community. Arjun Singh later on withdrew his circular, and emerged as secular figure in the eyes of Muslims. The purpose was served, i.e. to divert the community’s attention from the basic issues of  ‘give and take’.


This time again, as the Muslims are showing tilt towards Congress, but with a rider of  their demands, like the implementation of Sacher Committee report,  which it cannot concede for the fear of losing Hindu support, the safest via media before it  is to raise some emotional issue by which to reinvigorate the degenerating health of ‘Hindutwa forces’. Using its old faithful stooges, it has succeeded to a considerable extent.


The so-called Deoband ‘Fatwa’ against Vande Matram has activated the dying cells of B.J.P.  The unholy nexus between ‘Hindutwa forces and the ‘fictitious secularism’ is the most effective instrument since independence to deceive Muslims, and the hypocrites with the community are always used as the tool in that mechanism.
