Decision to link Pravasi Bharatiya Divas to Kumbh Mela is part of divisive agenda: Popular Front

Popular Front of India Chairman E Abubacker has stated that the decision of the External Affairs Ministry to move the date of 15th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas conference to link the event with Kumbh Mela is part of communal divisive agenda.
When External Affairs Ministry links it to Kumbh Mela, a Hindu religious event, it disregards the diverse nature of the India diaspora and imposes a practice of a religion upon all against their will. Such a decision goes completely against the secular spirit of our constitution. This attempt to manipulate Pravasi Bharadiya Divas by creating communal divide among the diaspora is shameful. It points to the agenda of the Hindutva regime to saffronize and give a religious colour to the public events sponsored by the government.
E Abubacker demanded the central government to withdraw the decision immediately.
