Support me in my fight against the RSS: Abdullah to Jamaat

‘I seek your support so that we can all collectively fight RSS with honour and courage’

‘PDP’s ‘mandate sellout’ to RSS makes me feel ashamed as a Kashmiri and as a Muslim’

 

Kangan: National Conference President Farooq Abdullah on Monday called upon Jamaat-e-Islami to support him in his fight against the RSS.

Abdullah who is contesting parliamentary elections from Srinagar said that small ideological differences should be kept aside in the fight against communal forces and people should fight collectively to regain their honour and dignity.

“Today this is not a battle between Farooq Abdullah and this alliance but a larger battle for our very survival with dignity and honour. Today we all, including our brothers in Jamaat-e-Islami have to come together to fight RSS or our identity and honour will be wiped out. I am just one person but I seek your support so that we can all collectively fight against the RSS with honour and courage”, said Abdullah while addressing a rally in Kangan.

The former chief minister said that PDP’s ‘mandate sellout’ for power makes him feel ashamed as a Kashmiri and as a Muslim.

“RSS represents decades of suppression of Muslims across the country and has openly advocated the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status since 1947. Today, both as a Kashmiri and a Muslim, I am disappointed and ashamed that PDP sold its 2014 mandate and its conscience to attain political power, “he said.

He further added that after selling her party to the RSS, Mehbooba is trying her best to sell the honour and dignity of Kashmiri people.

“She doesn’t leave a single opportunity to heap praise on the RSS, the BJP and even those leaders of the Sangh Parivar who have openly advocated destruction of minorities. This betrayal is historic and shameful and will have far-reaching consequences for the State if we don’t rise to the occasion and defeat this alliance of opportunism and evil”, Abdullah stressed.

He pointed out that NC has never bowed in front of bigoted communal forces for power.

“National Conference has never bowed down in front of these bigoted, communal and anti-Muslim forces and we will never join hands with them for power. We will bow our heads in faith only in front of our God and nobody else”, he said.

Abdullah while attacking the BJP and their current politics said that a party which didn’t field a single Muslim candidate in the Uttar Pradesh elections, how are they going to follow the Vajpayee doctrine.

“Mehbooba Ji’s ally, the BJP, didn’t field a single Muslim candidate in Uttar Pradesh which has nearly four crore Muslims. And she expects the same Narendra Modi to follow the footsteps of Atal Bihari Vajpayee? Both Mehbooba Mufti and Narendra Modi are trying to fool us as their words don’t match what is in their hearts, “said Abdullah.

Abdullah also maintained that Muslims have always been peace loving and will remain like that even after provocations by the ruling party (BJP).

“Muslims have always been peace-loving and will continue to respect all faiths and religions even while the ruling forces are encouraging attacks on mosques across the country. Wasn’t the demolition of Babri Masjid enough to satiate your sadistic and bigoted vision that now your supporters are barging into mosques to chant slogans? My message to these forces is loud and clear – you can attack our mosques but you can’t wipe our faith and our pride from our hearts”, said Abdullah.
