Welcoming the endorsement of Modi government’s moves by the top Muslim body of the country Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, Subramanian Swamy said Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind is a well-known patriotic organisation. He was replying to the questions posed by Times Now anchor in a telephonic conversation.
It must be noted that Jamiat Ulema-e-hind, the top Muslim body passed a resolution earlier in the day in which it supported NRC and asserted that Muslims of the country stand with the government’s decision on Kashmir.
Role in freedom struggle
Saying that Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind has a long history of patriotism, Swamy recalled that the body also supported the Indian freedom movement and opposed partition of the country.
Jamat-e-Islami is also rational
Though he called Jamiat-e-Islami, another well-known Muslim organisation, a radical hardline Muslim body, Swamy said it has always been on the rational side on a number of issues.
Swamy claimed that discrimination has been reduced and security has been increased in the states where BJP is coming to power hence Muslims are coming in support of the government’s moves.
Swamy lauded Jamiat for condemning Pakistan and said its point of view should largely be publicised.
