KARNATAKA, 20 February 2021, (TON): In reaction to Thursday’s speech by Popular Front of India (PFI) General Secretary Anis Ahmed on commemoration of Popular Front Day at Ullal , Mangaluru city, the Indian Home Minister questioned how can the PFI question the integrity patriotic institutions RSS?
PFI's Karnataka General Secretary, Anis Ahmed said in speech, “RSS said that proposed Ram Mandir was not Ram Mandir in truest sense but it is RSS mandir, therefore Muslim across the nation should not contribute a single paisa for that Mandir and PFI would continue to be targeted by the union government but the PFI would not succumb to them”. He said, "RSS is such a deadly virus for which there is no vaccine yet. We will get that vaccine and administer it at various places. There is no Hindu-Muslim problem in this country, but it is RSS vs Muslim problem in this country." He added, "All our workers who are arrested by the government in false cases are our heroes”.
India Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Friday directed police to file case against PFI leader as he had delivered anti national and hate speech. He said, "What PFI leader has spoken of is certainly against this country and against the Constitution. It is certainly anti-national speech, hate speech." He said, PFI wants to divide people of this country on communal lines.
Strongly criticizing highlighting of Ram Mandir issue by PFI, he said, “Ram Mandir’s matter is disposed-off by the Apex Court, permitting the Mandir to be built in the same place then why the issue is again being questioned.
