‘I am an Indian Muslim, not a Chinese Muslim’: Farooq Abdullah slams Center

New Delhi: Farooq Abdullah, the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, has lashed out at the central government over the alleged mistreatment of Muslims in the country. He claimed to be an Indian Muslim, not a Chinese Muslim. He made the remarks at an event organized by the Nationalist Congress Party, or NCP, to commemorate the 75th birthday of Chhagan Bhujbal, a senior NCP leader. Sharad Pawar was in charge of this event. Abdullah’s comment comes just days after two BJP leaders – a MP and an MLA – reportedly delivered hate speeches at an event in Delhi calling for a “total boycott” of a community, believed to be Muslims, that killed opposition leaders and critics of Prime Minister Narendra. Modi and his party, the BJP, have been labeled extremely dangerous.

“Everyone can be different. But together we can build this country. It’s called friendship. Religions don’t teach people to hate each other… This is Hindustan. It belongs to everyone,” Abdullah said. He was jailed for more than a year after his constitutional special status for Jammu and Kashmir was removed in August 2019.

Uddhav Thackeray of Shiv Sena, lyricist Javed Akhtar and NCP leader Ajit Pawar were among the leaders who attended this event. The presence of Mr Thackeray at the birthday party of Mr Bhujbal of the NCP is linked to the Shiv Sena. For starters, the NCP is an ally of Mr Thackeray’s Sena group, which is opposed by Prime Minister Eknath Shinde’s group.
