Bhubaneshwar: Asserting that the Muslims in India are the “happiest”, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) supremo Mohan Bhagwat said that people of other faiths have sought refuge in India due to the “Hindu culture”.

Addressing a gathering, Bhagwat said Hindu was not a religion, language or name of country. “It’s the culture of all those who live in India,” he said, adding that when any nation has deviated from the right path, “it has come to us in search of truth”.

Emphasising on India’s diversity, RSS chief said, “the Parsis community is well protected in India and the happiest Muslim in the world is also in India and why this is possible because we are Hindus.” (Maare-maare Yahudi (Jews) firte they akela Bharat hai jahan unko ashray mila. Parsion (Parsis) ki puja aur mool dharma sukrakshit kewal Bharat mein hai. Vishwa mein sarvadhik sukhi Musalman, Bharat mein milega. Ye kyun hai? Kyunki hum Hindu hain…”

Making a similar statement earlier this week, In his Vijayadashmi address, the RSS chief had said the Sangh was firm on its vision that ‘Bharat is a Hindu Rashtra’. “The vision and proclamation of the Sangh regarding the identity of the nation, social identity of all of us, and the identity of the country’s nature, are clear, well-thought-of and firm that Bharat is Hindustan, Hindu Rashtra,” he said.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday said that it will consider on November 6 the petitions against the Allahabad High Court order on the disqualification of Mohammad Abdullah Azam Khan and holding bypoll in Suar Assembly segment in Uttar Pradesh.

A bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde and comprising Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian scheduled the matter for hearing next week.

 

Khan, son of Samajwadi Party MP Azam Khan, was disqualified as an MLA after the High Court ordered his election void on December 16, 2019, as there was irregularity in the declaration of his date of birth. Khan had earlier also moved the apex court and the petition is still pending.

Last week, the High Court had directed the Election Commission to begin the process to conduct bypoll in the constituency in the absence of any interim order by the Supreme Court on Khan’s petition.

Khan has argued that the High Court has acted in haste in the backdrop that his petition against the disqualification order is yet to be decided by the top court, and also the direction to the poll body to conduct the bypoll is not correct.

The High Court, in the order, had said that the will of the people is supreme in a democracy and it cannot be lightly interfered with, and the Election Commission, under no circumstances, can frustrate the will of the people.

The High Court had noted that seat had remained vacant since December 2019, and also took a serious view of Election Commission failure to hold the bypoll.

Now, the Election Commission and Khan have moved the apex court to challenge this High Court order.
