Muslim group opposes Anna Hazare`s fast

Mumbai: A top body of Muslims on Monday
strongly opposed Gandhian Anna Hazare`s fast for a strong
Lokpal Bill beginning here tomorrow, saying it will help
communal forces.

Jamiat-e-Ulema Hind was against corruption but people
involved along with Hazare are working at the behest of RSS
and communal forces, the group`s state unit General Secretary,
Maulana Hhalimullah Quasmi, said in a statement here.

"We have experienced in the past that whenever such an
agitation is carried out against secular government, communal
forces get into power," he said.

The Congress-led UPA government is seriously making
efforts to address problems of minorities, especially Muslims.
Hence, such agitations will weaken the Government and help
communal forces, Quasmi said.

Hazare`s agitation was a conspiracy to strengthen
communal forces, he alleged.

Meanwhile, another organisation, All India Ulema
Council, said it will make its stand clear on Hazare`s
agitation tomorrow.

Representatives of both organisations were present at
Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal`s meeting with Muslim
organisations earlier in the day.
