The Vishva Hindu Parishad has demanded that the Central government must ban the Tablighi Jamaat in India and “crackdown” on Darul Uloom Deoband and Popular Front of India as they provide “direct or indirect nourishment” to Jamaat.
The Central Working President of the VHP Alok Kumar said that the Tablighi Jamaat should not only be banned in Bharat but all over the world as it endangers the lives of the people.
“Not only Bharat (India) but the whole world is in serious trouble today due to the transgressions of the Tablighi Jamaat and its Nizamuddin Markaz,” it alleged.
Calling it the “manufacturing hub of radical Islamic Jihadism, the lone wolves and a host and patron of global terrorism”, the VHP demanded that “The building of Nizamuddin Markaz and the bank accounts associated with it should be sealed. Their economic sources and resources should be found out and plugged.”
The founders of most of the terrorist organizations of the world have also been associated with the Tabligh, he said.
“The relations of all those – from the assassins of the American Trade Center (ATC) to the perpetrators of the burning of 59 Hindus alive in train bogey in Godhra and those celebrating the Urs of the Muslim lone wolf Abdul Rashid – the brutal murderer of Swami Shraddhanand – with the Markaz, is well known”, said the VHP.
Alok Kumar also stressed that the Saudi Arabian government has imposed a ban “the Jamaat” and welcomed the move.
“This radical Islamic fundamentalist organization is already banned in many countries of the world including Russia,” he said, adding that “despite this, instead of welcoming the decision of the Saudi government, some Bharatiya (Indian) Muslim organizations, with their protests against it, have exposed themselves and made their role in terror-rearing and fostering quite clear.”
