Popular Front demonstrates against the speech by BJP MP

The recent speech by BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj against the madarasas is yet another example of the venomous and irresponsible speech by the leaders of the saffron party. The Unnao MP on the seventh of this month said that the breeding places of terrorism. He also stated that love jihad is also being taught at the madarasas. Such a speech by a member of the Parliament is against the sovereign nature of the nation. Its to be remembered that the Home Minister Rajnath Singh, said that he is not aware of any love jihad, while the journalists questioned him.

The Islamic way of life and education are taught at the madarasas. Its highly condemnable to refer the madarasas that were in the forefront of the freedom struggle, as the breeding houses of terrorism. Such speeches hurt the feelings of the Muslim community and are an attempt to create wedge among the different communities.

The Tamil Nadu state unit of Popular Front of India vehemently condemned the speech by the BJP MP and demonstrations were held all over the state against Sakshi Maharaj and other BJP leaders who continue with their hate speech. In certain districts the protesters also demanded strict legal action against the BJP MP and the memorandum was submitted at the office of the police commissioners.

State president A.S.Ismail led the protest at Coimbatore. Hundreds of people participated in all the districts and voiced their condemnation against the BJP leaders.
