Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir has strongly condemned the proposal of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump for barring all Muslims from entering the United States.
In a media statement here on Wednesday, Shabbir Ali described Trump’s proposal as highly provocative and aimed at encouraging hate among different communities. He also condemned Republican Party leader’s call for surveillance against mosques and establishing a database for all Muslims living in the US. He said such statements and a discriminative approach towards Muslims were primarily responsible for the growing terrorism in the world.
“Both George W. Bush, senior and junior, meddled in the affairs of Muslim countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria and exposed the entire world to the threat of terrorism. Al-Qaeda was created by CIA to settle its scores with USSR and later, the same Al-Qaeda turned against it. Similarly, Saddam Hussain’s regime was brought to an end which consequently gave birth to Islamic State and now the ISIS operatives are unleashing terror across the world. The US and European countries must introspect and change their policies,” said Shabbir Ali.
Shabbir Ali also criticised the Western world for having dual policy on terrorism. “Terror attack on Paris is being treated as attack on the entire world. But when our Mumbai was attacked by Pakistan-based terror groups, the same countries did not support India in its war against terrorism. They did not snap their ties with Pakistan and didn’t even ask it to stop breeding terror groups,” he said.
The Congress leader said that the statement of Donald Trump is highly condemnable and all peace and justice loving people should oppose it. (INN)
