Mayawati retorts to Mohan Bhagwat’s comment, ‘Muslims can’t believe RSS unless BJP undergoes change’
She stressed that the Muslim community will find it very difficult to believe the RSS unless BJP and its governments undergo a change in their mindset and style of functioning.
Lucknow: Political rhetoric continues on the statement made by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat. On Monday, Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati commented on this issue. Mayawati said that the statement of Mohan Bhagwat is like ‘Munh mein Ram bagal mein chhoori’.
She stressed that the Muslim community will find it very difficult to believe the RSS unless BJP and its governments undergo a change in their mindset and style of functioning. Contending that there is a huge difference between the words and deeds of RSS, Mayawati shared some examples from BSP's political journey.
BSP supremo Mayawati remarked, "Everyone knows the difference between the words and deeds of RSS, BJP and their governments. It is not correct for the RSS chief to criticize the politics of this country and term it as 'divisive'. The reality is that casteism, politics of revenge and communal violence have affected normal life as RSS is blindly supporting BJP and its governments without caring for the people."
"BJP has no existence without the support of RSS. It is worth thinking about why the RSS has not been able to ensure the implementation of what Bhagwat said yesterday in BJP and its governments. It is clear that there is a world of difference between RSS's words and deeds," the former Uttar Pradesh CM added. Weighing in on the Uttar Pradesh Police's crackdown against forceful conversion, she maintained that BSP will oppose any attempt to create communal tension between Hindus and Muslims and to demonize the Muslim community.
Mayawati said that Mohan Bhagwat’s curse in terming the country’s politics as divisive is not right. The truth is that due to the BJP government, casteism, political hatred and communal violence have harassed the people.
Mayawati said that strict action should be taken in such cases for those who forcibly convert religions. But it should not be made a Hindu-Muslim issue deliberately and Muslim society should not be looked at with suspicion.
