Digvijay Singh, Senior Congress leader, addressed a crowd at Indor, Madhya Pradesh on the occasion of the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, on 2nd October 2019. He spoke up in reference to the speech made by the Pakistan PM at the United Nations general assembly, where he states that India is a country filled with Islamophobia and Muslim Radicalization.
Singh believes that The muslim radicalisation that Imran Khan talked of is a counter to the Hindu Radicalisation which will prove to be just as dangerous. He states that infact, if communalism of the majority takes place, it will be difficult to come back from it, and be more dangerous.
He quotes the freedom fighter, Jawaharlal nehru, who said that communalism of a majority is more dangerous than communalism of a minority, to prove his point. The NCP leader then went on to critisize the PM Narendra Modi on his policies of Hindutwa and blamed him for the disharmony in the country. He quotes,
“People of ideology that killed mahatma gandhi are telling their workers to do padayatra in every panchayat for a month. i would like to ask them what will they do there and how will they project gandhiji? will you put across gandhi’s side or godse’s side?”
The MLA also critisized Modi’s constant move to other countries and his agenda being filled with various events, rather than having a control on the increased incidents of mob lynching. He spoke about the economic situation of the country in terms of the increased violence and quoted,
“if this continues no new investments will come to the country and unemployment will rise. only truth, non-violence and harmony will lead to a bright future”
He also suggested that the values of non-violence, peaceful coexistence and harmony be taught n schools throughout the country to help in reducing the riots throughout the country.
