Congress Leader Ghulam Nabi Azad Compares RSS with ISIS

Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad sought to draw a parallel between ISIS and RSS over their alleged attempts to divide communities, saying Muslims oppose both the Islamic State and the Sangh Parivar. “We see among Muslims too, who have become reason of destruction of Muslim countries today… there are some forces behind it… but we need to understand why Muslims are taking part in it, why they are getting trapped. “So, we oppose organisations like ISIS, the way we oppose RSS. If those among us, in Islam, too do wrong things, they are no way less than RSS,” the Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha said. He made these remarks while addressing a massive gathering at the ‘National Integration Conference’ organised by Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind in New Delhi. During his speech, Azad urged the attendees to fight communalism of “all types”, whether engaged into by Hindus, Muslims or Sikhs, as they are “threat to the world and the country”. “They create distances between a man and another. Let them be of any religion, we will have to fight them. Hence, all the secularist forces need to come together to eliminate these forces. The fight is between communalism and secularism, let’s see whether communalism wins or the secularism,” he said. Azad further noted that people from all religions will take part in “fight for secularism”, while those in “fight for communalism” don’t belong to diverse background. “India belongs to all religions, which means majority is with us,” he added.
