India: Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan demands stern action against Sangh Parivar for promoting hate against Muslims

Kerala: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan charged the Sangh Parivar with bringing the country to a “state of shame” and urged the Centre to take steps to “punish the hate propagandists.”

“The Sangh Parivar forces have brought our country, to a state of shame in front of the world”. He termed as “communally venomous” the remarks of former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma and expelled Delhi media head Naveen Kumar Jindal against the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) and alleged “the Hindutva communal politics that is marginalizing the Muslim community is destroying” not only the social security of the country but also the economic stability.

He said many Islamic countries, which employ millions of Indians and make a significant contribution to our economy and development have become vocal in their opposition to the politics of hatred of the BJP and the Sangh Parivar.

Vijayan alleged the BJP leaders’ insulting words were part of the Sangh Parivar agenda and said it reflects the thought of former RSS chief late MS Golwalkar, who according to him, saw Muslims, Christians and communists as internal enemies. BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma was suspended from her post, while her colleague, Naveen Jindal was dismissed from the party, amid growing outrage in West Asian countries over their controversial remarks.

A Bahrain-based fellow Hasan Alhasan at the International Institute for Strategic Studies said, “Modi has tried very hard to prevent his party’s domestic political agenda from spilling over and poisoning India’s relations with the Gulf states”. “The extent to which Sharma’s comments have clouded India’s relations with the Gulf states is unprecedented, and that’s of course because she is, or was, the spokesperson of BJP.” Web Desk
