‘We are Hindi, not Hindu,’ Muslims being targeted, says Jamiat Ulama Hind

 

New Delhi: The President of Jamiat Ulama Hind, Maulana Arshad Madani has refuted the claim by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh said that “every Indian is a Hindu” and said it is a meaningless and illogical claim.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat had recently claimed that “every Indian is a Hindu”.

Talking to media persons the Jamiat chief reminded Bhagwat that “We are Hindi, and not Hindu.” He expressed his anger at the prevalent atmosphere of hatred in India. He said Muslims are being targeted as has happened recently in Haryana’s Nuh and in other places.

Maulana Madani also condemned the targeting of places of worship by miscreants during the riots, saying that this was not the teaching of any religion. “Those who use religion to incite hatred and violence cannot be true followers of their religion,” he said.
