Jammu, April 15 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the United Peace Alliance (UPA), an umbrella body of Jammu-based political, social and religious organizations, has deplored that victimization of Muslims and other minorities in India at the hands of Hindutva goons increased since the fascist Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister of the country.
Addressing a function organized in Jammu, the UPA Chairman and All Parties Hurriyat Conference leader, Mir Shahid Saleem, said a few days ago on the occasion of Hindu festival Ram Navmi festival, many mosques and Muslim homes were targeted in anti-Muslim riots in eight states, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal, Gujarat, Delhi, Karnataka, Jharkhand, Bihar and Goa.
The APHC leader said that since 2014, when the RSS-BJP fascist government came to power in India, the incidents of violence against the Muslims have increased manifold. He said the Hindu majority in India is being made to believe that the Muslim community is a threat to their survival and security and that they will have to declare war on Muslims in order to live in peace in India.
Mir Shahid Saleem said the Hindutva forces have created an atmosphere of anti-Muslim sentiment all over India and the most dangerous aspect of this propaganda is that it has the patronage of the central and state governments. He urged the Indian civil society and international human rights organizations to take note of the ongoing anti-Muslim riots in India and impress upon New Delhi to end suppression against the minorities.
