“Country would not have been ruined,” JUH chief Arshad Madani hits Congress for not banning Bajrang Dal 70-years-ago

Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind president Maulana Arshad Madani on Sunday said that if the Congress had banned the militant right-wing group Bajrang Dal 70 years ago, the country would not have been “ruined”.

Banning Bajrang Dal was part of the Congress Manifesto during the Karnataka election, which drew anger from the right-wing bloc.

Maulana Arshad Madani urged Congress to fulfil their promise and ban the saffron group associated with violence across India.

“After independence, the flexible policy of the Congress on communalism harmed both the country and the Congress: Even after 75 years of independence, the ideology of communalism is more powerful than ever. It is this ideology that is burning the history of the brotherhood,” Madani tweeted, clarifying his view.

“In its manifesto, the Congress party had talked about banning Bajrang Dal. If they had taken this decision 70 years back, the country would not have been ruined. When they said this, there was a hue and cry that Congress made a mistake by including it in its manifesto. I understood that it was not a mistake but it was being corrected,” Madani said.

He was speaking at the “All India General Meeting” of JUH held in Mumbai’s Azad Maidan.

“If there was no anti-Muslim policy of Bajrang Dal, then the Popular Front of India (PFI) would not have emerged. PFI is not an action but a reaction,” he added.
