New Delhi: It is learned that Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) leaders have held another meeting with prominent Muslim leaders in Delhi. At that time, talks were held regarding many issues including Kashi and Mathura mosques.
Last January 14, this meeting was held at Najeebjung’s house, the former lieutenant governor of Delhi. On the permission of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, its key functionaries Indresh Kumar, Ram Lal and Krishna Gopal Das attended the meeting.
On the Muslim side, there were 10 key executives including Jama’id-e-Islami Hind, two factions of Jama’id-e-Ulama Hind and Ajmer Dargah. In this, various issues against the minorities were highlighted from the side of Muslims.
Similarly, there was talk of the RSS supporting the ruling central government and giving away the mosques of Kashi and Mathura for Hindus.
Syed Tanveer Ahmed, National Secretary of Jamait-e-Islami Hind, told ‘Hindu Tamil Vektik’ about this:
Both sides wanted to continue these meetings held in a very good atmosphere. Instead of the positive change that the first meeting should have brought, the situation was made worse by hate speech. Thus, first of all, those who speak like this should be reprimanded. Law and order has deteriorated in the country.
As RSS has control over the ruling BJP, we have asked its leaders to explain to the party and the government. There should be an emphasis on preventing mob lynching, bulldozer politics and unnecessary arrests. Action should be taken against those who voice genocide.
Demands included political action and promotion of education by Muslims.
Among these, many issues including hatred were accepted by the RSS. Muslims were also asked to support nationalism, cow ban, triple talaq etc.
The mosques of Kashi and Mathura were also discussed in the meeting as there was an issue like the Babri Masjid issue. This is not a give and take issue. As a legal issue, it is based on evidence. We also knocked on court doors for Babri Masjid and we are not satisfied with the result.
There is no guarantee that this problem will go away. We also did not speak about this issue because we did not come prepared. As no major decisions were taken in this meeting, we did not meet the press. Thus, it is wrong to say that the meeting was held in secret. This was said by Syed Tanveer Ahmed.
Earlier in August last year, the first such meeting was held in Delhi with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat. Najeeb Jung, former Central Election Commissioner SY Qureshi, senior journalist Shaheed Siddiqui, famous restaurant owner Saeed Sherwani also participated in the second meeting. The meeting continued for about three hours. Its next meeting is expected to be held soon.
Muslim Votes: The BJP is keen to get all the Muslim votes in next year’s Lok Sabha elections. For this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had raised his voice in the last two national executive meetings of the BJP. As a result of this, for the first time since 2014, BJP has given a chance to two Muslim candidates in Tripura’s Legislative Assembly elections on behalf of their party.
