MUMBAI: “The NPR and NRC is a part of the Central government’s communal agenda to transform India into a Hindu-nation”, eminent and outspoken religious scholar Maulana Arshad Madani said. “NPR-NRC is a part of a larger communal agenda to isolate and alienate Muslims and make India a Hindu nation. They want to polarize the society,” Madani, the President of Jamiat Ulama I Hind, told media in Mumbai during press conference on Thursday.

“We will work hard to destroy the poison of NPR-NRC to preserve the secular fabric of the country. Hindus, Muslims and other people will continue to coexist peacefully. We will not hesitate to sacrifice in the same way as we had sacrificed in the freedom struggle for the country for the clutches of the British rule,” he said.
“We were born in India, and we will not leave India even if someone tries to scare us. We do not discriminate between people. We are all Indians. Jamiat is always ready to fulfill its duty,” Moulana Arshad Madani said.
“CAA has become a law and NRC is against the soul of the Constitution. There will be a day when NRC will be imposed, and it will be doomsday for Muslims. Take the example of Assam, Hindus that were left out in NRC list, will be given citizenship under CAA law but Muslims will not be entertained. Whatever happened to Muslims in Myanmar, will happen to Muslims of Assam,” he said.
Moulana Arshad Madani said that most of the opposition parties are opposing the NRC-NPR and it is not without a reason.
