Opinion | How PFI is trying to spread hate and venom among Indian Muslims

Three days ago, the Special Task Force of Uttar Pradesh Police arrested two ‘commanders’ of PFI (People’s Front of India), a radical Muslim outfit. The two had come by train and were arrested at a tourist spot in Kukrail on Tuesday leading to the seizure of 16 high explosives, battery detonator, wire, one pistol and 7 cartridges. Twelve railway tickets were also seized and police suspect that they had visited several places in UP to carry out serial blasts on the occasion of Basant Panchami celebrations.   Initially, I was a bit skeptical about the police version about the PFI activists planning to set up training hideouts in UP, but when I watched a video of Anees Ahmed, general secretary of PFI, that was telecast on Thursday night in my show ‘Aaj Ki Baat’, it seems as if the UP police has only touched the tip of an iceberg. There are forces who want to spread tension between Hindus and Muslims through hate speeches. These forces are desperately trying to halt India’s progress under Prime Minister Narendra Modi by instigating communal riots.   In the video of his speech at a “Unity March For The Nation” rally in Ullal, near Mangaluru in Karnataka, Anees Ahmed said, “Earlier anti-CAA activists were targeted, now the farmers are being targeted. The message is clear: if you want to survive in India, you’ll have to live as slave of this government. There is no talk of sabka sath, sabka vishwas. This government is giving you a single agenda: whether you are afraid of the RSS or not? If you become a sycophant of RSS, you’ll get the Governor’s seat, you’ll get a seat in Parliament like Ranjan Gogoi (former Chief Justice of India who delivered the Ayodhya verdict), those Congress leaders who got Muslim votes and have joined BJP will get ministers’ seats, and if you oppose the BJP, then you’ll be booked under UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act), you’ll be hounded by ED and NIA. My question to all those sitting here: Will you surrender to the threats of RSS and BJP?” (the crowd shouts No).
