Imam of city’s Tipu Sultan Mosque Maulana Barkati lashed out at Modi for seeking the votes of the Muslim community. He asked Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee to be more critical of Modi in order to prove her secular credentials.
He added, “Mamata Banerjee (CM of West Bengal) should be more critical of Narendra Modi (BJP PM candidate) like Rahul Gandhi to prove her secular credentials.
The Imam of city’s Tipu Sultan Mosque, Maulana Barkati, told PTI, “We know she is secular, but if Mamata Banerjee wants to prove her secular credentials, she should be more aggressive and critical about Modi. Rahul Gandhi has been critical of Modi, we want Mamata Banerjee also to come out openly in criticizing Modi.”
In India, the politicians who sports Skull caps like Muslims, even on Hindu Festivals, and openly abuses & criticizes Hindu Nationalist leader Modi, is offered certificate of secularism by the great clerics of Islam.
Indian National Congress leader, & Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde refused to be anointed by a vermilion tilak when a Hindu priest approached him, but he went forward enthusiastically to wear a skull-cap, when offered by a Maulvi (Islamic Cleric), just to woo Muslims of India, and to prove his secular credentials.
Even, the newly born Aam Aadmi Party’s chief ‘Arvind Kejriwal’, who is accused of having relations with Anti-India organizations, too wore skull-cap in public meeting to woo Muslim voters, and to project himself as a secular leader.
Now Indian voters need to realize that wearing or sporting skull-cap has nothing to do with secularism. Secularism is defined as “the view that public education and other matters of civil policy should be conducted without the introduction of a religious element”, but this is not the case with Indian secularism, in India secularism is decided by some of the powerful Islamic Clerics, who are free to abuse Hindus, Hindu leaders and right-wing politicians, and the Politicians who follow them blindly are rated high in their certificate of Secularism.
