Mahmood Madani, general secretary of the Jamiat-e-Ulama-e-Hind spoke to Navtan Kumar of the Sunday Guardian on how the Congress has taken “Non-Hindus” for granted.
Q: You have said that political parties should go for positive campaigning instead of creating a fear psychosis among the minorities for electoral gains. What do you mean by positive campaign?
A: When I talk about positive campaign, I mean you should tell us what commitments you made and what all you fulfilled. Just take the (Congress’) last election manifesto. You made several promises but how many of them did you fulfil, and how many were left out? You should be able to explain why the promises could not be fulfilled and how you propose to fulfil those promises. If you make promises, and then do not fulfil them, what is the point of making promises?
Q: Can you give examples of promises made by the UPA government that remained unfulfilled?
A: The government had promised reservations to minorities but that has not seen the light of the day. Also, the government has miserably failed in enacting the Communal Violence Bill. The sad part is that there is no discussion on issues and when somebody questions the government about these things, he is branded as pro-Narendra Modi.
