New Delhi, May 25, 2023 (PPI-OT): Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (JUH) President, Maulana Syed Arshad Madani, has said that the BJP-led Modi government’s insistence on bringing in a Uniform Civil Code (UCC) is nothing but an attempt to abolish freedom of religion in India. Addressing the concluding session of the three-day conference of the party at Mumbai’s Azad Maidan, Maulana Arshad Madani said there is a conspiracy to take away the religious freedom of the citizens by introducing the Uniform Civil Code. “Efforts to promote Hindu revivalism have started under the guise of the new national education policy. The Jamiat strongly opposes it, and a resolution on it has also been passed in the JUH general body meeting,” he said.
He blamed Congress for adopting a soft and flexible attitude towards sectarian and communal forces. These forces, he said, were involved in the assassination of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and the leniency shown to them resulted in the strengthening of divisive forces which have taken the country on the path of destruction. He added that the assassination of Gandhi was actually the assassination of secularism in India.
Referring to the latest election results in Karnataka where Congress got overwhelming majority, the JUH chief appreciated the voters in the state for rejecting the forces propagating hate. He said an atmosphere of fear has gripped the entire country and it has now been turned into a police state.
