Muslims, Dalits Being Persecuted In India: Qasim Fakhtoo

Srinagar, October 30 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the President of Muslim Deeni Mahaz (MDM), Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo has said that Muslims and Dalits are being persecuted in India ever since Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) came into power in India. According to media sources, Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo, who is in jail, in a statement issued in Srinagar said, Muslims are living in a constant fear and the Indian hyper-nationalism has overwhelmed the country’s politics, economy, society, education and media. “But this is only one aspect of this scenario. This has proved it again that no country in the world can truly be secular even if its constitution is secular,” he said.“RSS is sincere about Hinduism and Hindu India and doesn’t deceive people by secularism. India has been a Hindu Rashtra in the past, continues to be so, and will be the same in future as well.” He said that Indian government followed the religion of the majority and Hindu extremist RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat did not hesitate to admit that. “The way the Hindu majority in India rewarded the executer of Gujarat pogrom Narendra Modi by electing him as the prime minister of India shows the thinking trends in Hindu India. Modi has also lived up to the expectations of Hindu majority by forming a Muslim free government,” he said. Qasim said India has evolved as a Hindu Rashtra in the world and thus the political vision of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan and Muhammad Ali Jinnah has been proved right. He also condemned the excesses being meted out to Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir under the rule of PDP and RSS. “This is one aspect of this government; the other aspect is that it has brought out the real face of India and those people who would advocate India in Kashmir are now finding it difficult to speak for India.” “Some educated youth who would term the ideas of freedom and sovereignty as archaic ideas in presence of IMF and UNO have now realised that freedom is not just in the spheres of politics and economy but in the fields of religion, culture, education and identity also and Muslims in Kashmir cannot safeguard their identity under Hindu Indian rule,” Qasim maintained.
