Such remarks are against India's unity: AIIO chief imam on Ashok Singhal

Condemning VHP patron Ashok Singhal's controversial remarks, Imam Umer Ahmed Ilyasi, chief Imam of the All India Imam Organisation (AIIO), on Sunday said such utterances are against the nation's unity and religious harmony.



New Delhi: Condemning VHP patron Ashok Singhal's controversial remarks, Imam Umer Ahmed Ilyasi, chief Imam of the All India Imam Organisation (AIIO), on Sunday said such utterances are against the nation's unity and religious harmony.

"Such remarks are against our nation's unity, brotherhood and spirit of religious harmony. I feel such remarks should not be given importance," Ilyasi told ANI.

Singhal sparked another controversy on Saturday by saying that India would be a 'Hindu' nation by 2020.

"I was at the Sai Baba Ashram where Sai Baba told me by 2020 the entire country will be Hindu and 2030 the entire world will be Hindu. I feel that revolution has started," he said at a function in the national capital.

He also said the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA Government has put an end to 800 years of 'slavery'.
