Popular Front of India General Secretary M Muhammed Ali Jinnah has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to act upon his new promise of inclusiveness by preventing the atrocities on minorities.
Within hours after the Lok Sabha elections results, incidents of attacks by Hindutva fanatics were reported in various states. A group of 3 innocents including a Muslim couple was brutally beaten in Seoni, Madhya Pradesh by Goraksha gangs after falsely accusing them of carrying beef. In Gurugram, Haryana, a Muslim youth was forced to remove his skull cap and chant Jai Shriram. Gorakshaks shot dead another innocent man in chenab valley in Jammu Kashmir. A youth is shot at in Begursarai district of Bihar. Such shocking instances of communal tension are being reported from various parts of the country.
After the sweeping victory of his party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised to work towards a ‘strong inclusive India’. He has also spoken about removing fear from among minorities. Ironically, it is his party men who are behind these attacks. If Mr. Modi is sincere about his promises, it is to walk his talk, to stand by the words with actions. Mohammed Ali Jinnah has reminded that the created fear among Muslims will only be removed when they are guaranteed social security and the perpetrators of violence are brought to book and served justice.
