BJP’s Move is Racist and Outrageous — British Indian Muslims


London, 18 May, 2004: Council of Indian Muslims — UK (CIM) has condemned as "outrageous and racist" the opposition by BJP to the possibility of Congress leader Sonia Gandhi becoming India’s Prime Minister.

In a statement issued today CIM’s chairman Mr Munaf Zeena said, "BJP’s outrageous and racist opposition of Ms Gandhi as India’s PM has shown to the world the ugly face of Hindutva forces.

"This is really bizarre that someone as eminent as Ms Gandhi who holds an Indian passport, is a bona fide citizen of India, has been serving in the Indian parliament, has contested and campaigned in election but the moment her party wins and her supporters decide to nominate her to be the next Prime Minister of the country a bunch of fanatics declare her to be a second class citizen." Mr Zeena said.

He also added that "Ms Gandhi’s ‘foreign origin’ is just a pretext. As a matter of fact this is her Catholic background because of which the fascists of Sangh Parivar are opposing her. They can not tolerate a non-Brahmin as a PM and they will continue to create problems for Man Mohan Singh as well." 

Mr Zeena praised Ms Gandhi’s decision to withdraw her name in the larger interest and unity of the country as "magnanimous and an example of very high morals."

"The Sangh Parivar is happy to see its agents do businesses in foreign lands, settle there and occupy high posts. They saw nothing wrong in receiving money from their agents in the UK, Middle East and the US for building the so called Rama Temple in Ayodhya and for the massacre of Muslims. They are happy to establish the branches of RSS and the BJP in other countries but feel no repugnance in using someone’s place of birth as her biggest demerit. The world should not ignore this jingoism and condemn it."
