Left MPs slam Sangh Parivar, Mujahideen leadership at KNM state meet in Kozhikode

Kozhikode; LDF Rajya Sabha members John Brittas and Binoy Viswam slammed the Sangh Parivar in the presence of Goa governor Sreedharan Pillai.

They were speaking at the state conference of Kerala Nadvathul Mujahideen on Friday here. Brittas also slammed the Mujahideen for going ‘soft’ on the Sangh Parivar.

Pillai, who spoke first, said that he was amused by the controversy over his presence at the meeting as he has always attended conferences of Muslim organisations. Earlier, social media users had slammed the organisers for inviting Pillai and some BJP leaders to the seminar on secularism.

Pillai said the country has 130 crore people and it is quite natural that there are issues among them. Religions in India generally have a broad sense, he said.

Viswam, who spoke next, slammed Pillai, who is a former state BJP president, by quoting MS Golwalkar, a former RSS chief and ideologue.

The CPI leader said, “Golwalkar had declared that minorities would be second-class citizens in India. Where does this stand in the sugar-coated words of Pillai?”

Brittas, who spoke next, questioned the Mujahid leadership whether it believes it could change the approach of Sangh Parivar towards minorities by holding such discussions. “You have to ask yourselves whether they (Sangh Parivar) will accommodate you the way you are considering them. You have to ask this on their face,” he said.

The videos of the speeches are now viral on social media.

Earlier, a Mujahid leader had told a pro-BJP media outlet in an interview that minorities in India do not face any issues.
