New Delhi: While Hindu Sena has filed a counter-appeal in the Supreme Court in the Haridwar Hate Speech Case demanding the arrest of Muslim leaders, the Muslim Rashtriya Manch, Muslim wing of RSS has condemned the hate speech made at the Dharam Sansad event in Haridwar.
The RSS’ Muslim wing on Sunday carried out a public awareness campaign in three districts of Uttar Pradesh and said during the event that the kind of statements made at the Dharma Sansad was not right for any civilized society and the wing condemns such remarks, reported PTI .
The RSS’ Muslim Wing organized meetings with Muslim clerics and scholars to garner the community’s support for the BJP ahead of assembly polls.
The campaign was carried out by a 10-member team of the Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM) in Amroha, Moradabad and Rampur districts of Uttar Pradesh, the RSS affiliate said in a statement.
The MRM team comprised its national convenor Md Akhtar, head of the outfit’s Madrasa cell Mazahar Khan and Uttarakhand Madrasa Board chairman Bilal Ur Rehman, it added.
“In all the three districts, we had long and intense discussions with the maulana of Jama Masjid, Qazi and Muslim intellectuals like doctors, lawyers, and engineers on the problems that the members of the community are facing and their solution, MRM’s national convenor and media in-charge Shahid Sayeed told PTI.
During the meetings, the MRM said in a statement, members of the Muslim community raised concerns over growing animosity in the society, referring to the remarks made by some of the participants at a ‘Dharma Sansad’ in Uttarakhand recently.
Md Akhtar clarified that neither the government nor the Sangh had anything to do with any such Dharma Sansad and also told them that the MRM does not support such people and it strongly condemns their remarks.
In a bid to influence the voters of the state, the MRM team also apprised the community of various measures taken by the Narendra Modi government for the welfare and empowerment of Muslims, especially women.
On December 17, a ‘Dharam Sansad’ event in Haridwar saw a series of hate speeches being made targeting Muslims and calling for violence and assassination, triggering a nationwide outrage.
The RSS Wing heard the issues of their community and assured them of addressing their grievances if the party retained power in the state.
In the meeting with Muslim intellectuals, the MRM said, serious discussions were held on the issues related to education, health, security and self-reliance of Muslim society especially its women.
The community members were assured that the MRM would continue to hold a dialogue with them even after the elections are over, Sayeed said.
The RSS’ Muslim wing recently released a ‘Nivedan Patra’ (letter of request) and appealed to the minority community to vote for the BJP in the upcoming assembly polls in five states, including Uttar Pradesh, saying Muslims are “most secure and happy” under the BJP rule whereas the Congress, SP and the BSP considered them just as vote bank.
