Lucknow: Rashtriya Ulama Council (RUC) Chairman Maulana Aamir Rashadi Madni has strongly lashed out at Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and UP CM Akhilesh for 'treating Muslim community as merely a vote-bank'.
"How come PM Narendra Modi has become 'enemy' after Gujarat riots, while Mulayam Singh Yadav is still a 'messiah' even after 457 riots in Uttar Pradesh during Mulayam and Akhilesh's regime in the state," asked Maulana Aamir Rashadi Madni, according to a report in Dainik Jagran.
Accusing political parties of cheating Muslims in the name of secularism and communalism, Maulana Aamir Rashadi Madni said, "Some political parties are creating fear by using BJP's name to reap political profits."
"Now, Muslims won't become vote-bank of the parties who cheat them," Madni added.
Also, the Rashtriya Ulama Council Chairman said that if Muslims, Brahmins, Bhumihaar and Rajputs can come together to become one force, then no political party can defeat this unit. "This vote bank will easily be able to defeat Yadavs," Maulana Aamir Rashadi Madni said.
