Mushawarat criticises Election Commission’s double-standards and inactivity, asks Supreme Court to intervene

New Delhi, 21 April 2014: All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat, the umbrella body of Indian Muslim organizations, said here today that the Election Commission of India is playing partisan politics by removing the ban on Amit Shah while retaining the same in the case of Azam Khan. The Election Commission has also failed to take action against umpteen BJP leaders who have crossed all limits during the current electoral campaign, like Giriraj Singh saying that “opponents of Modi will be sent to Pakistan” or Vasundra Raje saying “we will see who is cut to pieces after the election,” or Nitin Gadkari saying that “casteism is in the DNA of Bihar” or Parveen Togadia saying that Muslims will be expelled to Pakistan and reminding them of Muzaffarnagar, Khokhrajhar and Gujarat 2002, etc. etc.

Mushawarat president Dr. Zafarul-Islam Khan said: since the Election Commission has developed cold feet to tackle the BJP-RSS hate juggernaut, Supreme Court of India should take suo motto notice by appointing an SIT to probe the hatemongering by Sangh Parivar people during the current election campaign and bring the culprits to book. Mushawarat chief has written a letter in this connection to the Chief Justice of India.
