New Delhi : BJP got a much needed support from another prominent Muslim organization on abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir and rolling out NRC across the country.
Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadees
Maulana Asghar Ali Imam Mahdi Salafi , general secretary of Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadees gave his support to Modi government on abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir and rolling out NRC across the country on Saturday when he met with home minister Amit Shah along with the leaders of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind .
There was no confusion about the stand of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind regarding Article 370 and NRC as its National president Maulana Qari Mohammad Usman Mansoorpuir , and Mahmood Madani have already supported the government on the above both issues more than twice in two weeks , but this time the Salafi group gave a shot in arm to Modi government on the controversial decision taken by Modi government.
According to the press statement of JUH , a delegation comprising of the leaders of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind and other Muslim organizations called on Shri Amit Shah, the Home Minister of India at his Krishna Menon Marg residence and discussed various important issues concerning the country and community. The delegation was led by Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind National president Maulana Qari Mohammad Usman Mansoorpuir accompanied by Maulana Mahmood Madani JUH General Secretary and Maulana Asghar Ali Imam Mehdi Salafi, Ameer Jamiat Ahle Hadith Hind prominently .
Maulana Mahmood Madani, General Secretary of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind during meeting handed over to the Home Minister the Hindi version of resolutions that were adopted in the recently concluded General Council Meeting of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (JUH). Maulana Madani also apprised him that General Council of JUH comprises of representatives from all across the country.
Maulana Madani also asserted that there might be differences of opinion over some issues with the government, but if the matter belongs to the national interest, JUH would stand side by side with it.
JUH deplores every separatist movement and it always stands up for the cause of united India,he added.
Amit Shah on Article 370
Amit Shah while listening to the concern expressed by the members of the delegation clarified that scrapping article 370 is in the interest of people of Kashmir. This Article was instead harmful to the concerned people. He invoked many examples for proving his stand. But he also assured that the culture and tradition of Kashmiri shall not be affected.
Amit Shah also lauded Jamiat’s initiative for constituting Jamiat Sadbhavna Manch across the country.
Maulana Asghar Imam Salafi Mehdi said to the Home Minister that we believe in dialogue and discussion. Various issues being faced by the minority communities shall be resolved through discussions. The Home Minister assured him that he is willing to engage every Muslim organization with dialogue and discussion with an open heart.
Its yet to be seen that the government has had a change of heart for Muslims or Muslim leaders had changed their hearts for Modi government.
