VHP shuts initiation of minority helpline in India

New Delhi: Slamming the idea to provide help to minorities in anguish, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), has objected to a proposal by the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) of starting the helpline.

Syed Ghayorul Hasan Rizvi, NCM newly appointed chairperson had decided to promote the setting up of a helpline which minorities could avail in case of communal violence against them. The saffron group said this move can ‘foster separatism’.

The joint general secretary of the VHP, Surendra Jain said the NCM’s move will strengthen the feelings of separatism in the Muslim community and demanded the setting up of a “majority commission”, reports HT.

The VHP leader said the NCM must answer whether only Muslims in the country are victims of communal violence.

While mentioning an incident of the evacuation of Hindus from UP’s Kairana, the RSS affiliate accused the Samajwadi Party, then in power, for “appeasing” the minorities and failing to take action on complaints registered by the Hindus in the area.

Jain further commented, “those atrocities against the Muslim community have reached such proportions that the extreme step of opening a helpline for the Muslims had to be taken up.”

“The events unfolding in the world prove that the rights that the Muslims in Bharat enjoy cannot be matched by even the Muslims of the Islamic states. Despite this, the jihadi elements foment enmity by creating dissatisfaction among the Muslims. The Minority Commission too is only fomenting the same feelings of dissatisfaction by its work thereby strengthening minoritism and separatism,” he said.

The group who led the Ayodhya movement, wants the government to impose a complete ban on cow slaughter and beef consumption. VHP is emphasising its demands while numerous cases of the cow vigilantes coming into pictures.
