Keep the interests of Hindus in the forefront: VHP to political leaders | India News

LUCKNOW: Two days after PM Narendra Modi visited the Bohra mosque in Indore and invoked Imam Hussain, the grandson of Prophet Mohammad, to emphasise the need for peace and justice, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad said on Sunday that political leaders should keep the interests of Hindus at the forefront since the community formed a majority of Indian state.

Speaking to reporters in Lucknow, VHP international general secretary, Milind Parande said nobody knows what was going in the mind of PM Modi when he visited the mosque. “Wo (Modi) masjid kyun gaye ye poochna padega…har kisi ko apne astha ke anusar kaam karna chahiye (We need to ask him as to why he went to a mosque…everyone should work according to his/her religious faith),” Parande said.

“Is desh mein jisko rajneeti karni hai..usko Hindu hit ke baare mein sochna padega wo chahe kisi bhi rajnaitik dal ka ho…(Irrespective of a political party, any one who wants to be in politics needs to be think of Hindus interest),” Parande said. He, however, maintained that the BJP was serving for the interests of Hindus. “Other political parties too should follow suit,” he added.

Parande said that keeping interests of Hindus was important since the country was under threat from intrusion of illegal Muslim migrants and forced conversion of Hindus into other religion. He said that some of the states like Assam and West Bengal were facing population imbalances because of large scale intrusion of Muslim migrants from Bangladesh. “Likewise, forced conversion of Hindus into Christianity has led to dominance of Christians in states like Mizoram, Nagaland and Meghalaya. J&K has been turned into Muslim dominated state,” he said.

The VHP leader said that the Centre should also give citizenship to Hindus of other countries seeking shelter in India. “At the same time, illegal Muslim migrants be flushed out of this country,” he said.
