Narendra Modi govt making Muslims ‘insecure’ – The Indian Express

Following a two-day convention of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, the body on Sunday decided to constitute a committee called ‘Defend Constitutional Rights Committee’ to step up propaganda countering the anti-minority decisions of various state governments and the Center. The spokesperson of the body said that ever since the formation of the new government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Muslims are ‘increasingly feeling insecure.’

“Several recent decisions by the Center and various state governments and hate speeches by Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leaders have created a difficult and unnerving atmosphere for Muslims. In the face of such difficult times, we have decided to set up a committee and create awareness among members of the community to stand up for their constitutional rights, which is a secure secular environment,” Mohammed Abdul Rahim Qureshi, secretary of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, said on Sunday.
