Row over AMU student leader's remarks: RSS flays anti-CAA protest

Row over AMU student leader's remarks: RSS flays anti-CAA protest

New Delhi, Jan 24 (UNI) Amid raging row over anti-CAA and pro-CAA protests in various parts of the country, the RSS on Friday said opposing the new Citizenship law is akin to supporting persecution of religious minorities including Hindus in countries such as Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
"Opposing CAA is like giving permission to perpetrate atrocities on religious minorities in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh," senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar said here.
His comments come in the wake of strong words used by a former Aligarh Muslim University student leader who has reportedly said that Muslims are losing patience and can act angrily against the entire country.
According to media reports, a former AMU student union president Faizul Hasan has said - “We are from that community which can destroy any country if we feel like”.
RSS leader Indresh Kumar also remarked: "Opposing CAA is also like allowing atrocities on Shias and other select Muslim groups in those countries" - and added that protests in AMU, JNU and Jamia Millia and also some other hubs show youths are being misled.
"If somebody is making these remarks (like Aligarh Muslim University student leader), it shows these people are not yet Indians. And today also they sound anti-India," he said.
However, the RSS leader maintained common Muslims are getting 'cautioned' from such elements as these people do not follow the real path of Islam.
Hardliner BJP leader Vinay Katiyar also reacted to strong statements from some student leaders and said, "Even in past when Muslim rulers were in power, such statements never came".
"Here what we have are children are Maharana Pratap and Shivaji, and if someone feels they can get away by issuing threats to the entire nation, such people will be proved wrong," Mr Katiyar said.
It may be mentioned that Mr Katiyar was elected to the Lok Sabha from the Faizabad constituency to the 10th, 11th and 13th Lok Sabha in 1991, 1996 and 1999, and to the Rajya Sabha from Uttar Pradesh in 2012.

Former AMU student union leader Hasan had further said: “We never want Hindustan to be broken, otherwise nobody can stop us from doing so.......If you want to see patience then look at the Muslims of India. From the year 1947 until now, the Muslims in India have shown a lot of patience".
