Jaipur: Attacking communal forces, Acharya Pramod Krishnam said that whenever such forces are confronted they start calling their opponents ant-national. The Hindu seer made the observation during a conference held as part of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind’s (JIH) two week long Peace and Humanity campaign.
Acharya Pramod Krishnam said that people of the country are woven together in the unbreakable bond of love and amity and such divisive forces will never succeed in breaking this historic bond. He went on to add that the day this bond is broken, our nation will cease to be a nation in its present form.
While talking about Hindus-Muslims living together amicably, he said that if Islam is attacked in the country, Hindus will come out in its support, and when Hinduism is under attack, Muslims will come forward to safeguard the followers of Hinduism. He said that this will be the best response to communal forces who are doing their best to create fissures in the society and pit Hindus against Muslims.
Top Barelwi and Sunni leader in the country and President of Ittehad-e-Millat Council, Maulana Tauqir Raza, said that peace and security was the top priority in the country at the moment. He emphasized the fact that till the time security is maintained, there will be peace. And as soon as hatred succeeds in vitiating the atmosphere, the country’s developmental journey will come to a sudden stop. He added that people at large want peace and harmony across the country. We need to think positively about it and work hard to maintain it.
“If wee succeed in defeating the communal forces, it will be a powerful slap on their faces. When Muslims’ life is being made miserable in the name of cow protection, no step is taken against cow meat exporters, majority of whom don’t belong to the Muslim community” said Raza. He further said that as a form of respect to the sentiments of Hindus, the export of cow meat should be banned forthwith.
Maulana Jalaluddin Umari, the President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind said that both Muslims and Hindus need peace and security. If there is no peace in a country, it cannot develop. While talking of extremism, the Islamic scholar added that when people show forbearance and patience, this helps create an atmosphere of harmony and communal amity. He said that his organization JIH has tried to raise its voice against the people who are spreading animosity among people of different faiths. The meet was attended by renowned personalities of the city belonging to Hindu and Muslim communities. (Translated from Roznama Khabrein)
