Mumbai: Against the backdrop of the
allegations that Anna Hazare has links with the RSS, Arvind
Kejriwal, a key Team Anna member today met representatives of
Muslim organisations here to clear the `misconceptions`.

Kejriwal held a two-hour discussion with the
representatives of All India Ulema Council and Federation
of Muslim NGOs at Crawford Market, after the Islam Gymkhana
cancelled the meeting on its premises.

Talking to reporters after the meeting, Kejriwal
alleged that the Government and corrupt people were indulging
in a false propaganda that Team Anna had a communal agenda.
"We are against communalism and in today`s meeting, we
have cleared the misconceptions among the Muslims," he said.
Kejriwal blamed the media for the misunderstanding,
saying Hazare had praised the development in Gujarat and
Bihar.

"False propaganda was unleashed by a section of the
media that Muslims were against us," he alleged.

"Anna had said riots were wrong, but the media did not
publish these comments. When Anna went to Ahmedabad for a
public hearing, he had said that there were several corruption
cases in Gujarat," Kejriwal said.

When asked about Hazare`s health, Kejriwal said, he
would reach Mumbai tonight. "He is fine now. But, if he is not
able to sit on fast, we will do so. His presence is important.
However, Anna will take a final call on it," he said.
