“His master’s voice”: Popular Front questions Minority Commission Chairman

Popular Front of India chairman E Abubacker has termed it a mockery, the statement made by the National Commission for Minorities Chairman Ghayorul Hasan Rizvi that Ram temple must be built in Ayodhya, for the Muslims in the country to be able live peacefully and respectfully.
All sane elements in the country, except Sangh Parivar would agree that the demolition of Babri Masjid was the worst organized act of crime in Independent India, after the assassination of the father of nation by the same forces. Until Babri Masjid is rebuilt, Muslims are allowed to pray there and all perpetuators of the crime are punished, the issue will remain as an unhealed wound. To downplay the heinous act of demolishing a place of worship that belonged to a religious minority as merely an issue of temple construction is ridiculous for any man of conscience, let alone the head of a constitutional body established to protect the rights of minorities.
Unfortunately this Chairman of NCM has not been seen on any of the occasions when his services and concerns were most wanted. He has not been seen speaking a word for justice to Babri Masjid. It seems that he is playing the role similar to a leader of the Minority wing of RSS or BJP at the behest of his masters in Sangh Pariwar and not that of the chairman of Minority Commission. While Hindutva right wing forces in the country extend their claim to almost all historic symbols of Muslim heritage, he suggests that if Muslims abandon Babri Masjid, their problems would be solved forever. It is absurd to think that peace and respect between communities can be achieved by compromising natural justice or when minorities in the country lay their rights before the majoritarian forces in the country. By demanding temple construction and thereby objecting to Babri Masjid, NCM chief is voicing for imposing an injustice on minority community.
As far as the minorities in the country are concerned, they are going through the worst situation in history. Building Ram temple at the site of demolished Masjid is not the solution to the ongoing lynching, violence and other hate crimes spearheaded by Hindutva outfits. E Abubacker blamed that even the shadow of the present head of Minority Commission is not seen on such occasions. He reminded that since NCM is meant for the protection of minority interests, its chairman would rather urgently engage in ensuring justice to the victims of such attacks.
