Brinda Karat, CPM, Lt-Governor Najeeb Jung, Lt-Governor, Najeeb Jung, Muslim group , delhi news, city news, local news, Indian Express Karat, claimed that police were putting pressure on residents to enter into an agreement to allow a shakha on the day of Eid.

Led by CPM politburo member Brinda Karat, Muslims from Northeast Delhi’s Shriram Colony met Lt-Governor Najeeb Jung on Wednesday, urging him to prevent communal tension “because of RSS actions” in their area.

Karat, who spoke to the Lt-Governor, claimed that police were putting pressure on residents to enter into an agreement to allow a shakha on the day of Eid.

Earlier, the same delegation met Police Commissioner B S Bassi on July 3 for police intervention, but there were no developments, Karat said.

“We informed the Lt-Governor about the police pressure on local residents for a so-called compromise — that the shakha should be conducted up to 7 am and the Eid namaz could be held thereafter. The people of the area are sceptical about this, given their experience last year about a written agreement that has not been implemented till date,” Karat said.

She said RSS shakha meetings in this area should be stopped “particularly during the Eid festivities on July 17-19”.

Shriram Colony residents alleged that the RSS organises morning shakhas at Rajiv Park and do not allow them — it is a Muslim-dominated colony — to enter the park between 6 am and 7.30 am.

Residents said the shakha members are not from their locality and have “purposely chosen” a Muslim-dominated area.

      Ms. Karat, why shakha should be stopped? every citizen has a right to exercise his freedom. Do you go to LG to stop Namaz on Deepawali or Dussehra? This is the height of absurdity. She should not impinge on the freedom of people to placate Muslims. They should celebrate Eid and shakha should be organized. Police should keep an eye that no miscreant is causing any trouble. In fact Muslims celebrating eid should offer some sweets to Shakha people to increase Bhai Chara.

        Shakha should not only be stopped but it should be banned country wide since it is part of the terrorist organization RSS. It does nothing to promote communal harmony but does everything to spread racial tensions among Hindus and all Non Hindus of India. For the sake of the country, government should immediately declare RSS for what it is, a Terror spreading, hateful Hindu Organization that has not place in India and therefore ban it.

                Good to hear some news about Karats who are not in the public domain for a long time. During the years between 2004-2009 not a day ped without some news about them and the early morning job for every news reporter was waiting for the darshan of Karat and to hear what he has to say about the famous or infamous CMP. Now any news about the Party itself is scarce. What a fall? Krish.

                  Is Brinda raising her real communal-face out of her subtle veil of secular-colour by attempting to foment the communal tensions by yet pretending to be secular again? This is what has been happening in the past at the hands of all the so called ‘secular forces’ such as Congress and CPI/M that though the country remained under their rule for so many years the hatred between different communities only worsened where as in Gujrat state, there never erupted any second riots after Modi ji took control of the situation. Where there is will there is way !! shame on such Pseudo-seculars !! Who is Brinda Karat to suggest such an idea that a place which is in Muslim-dominated area should be stopped for Shakha use during the Eid festivities ? Is she suggesting that the festivities mean to break away from each other ? Rather than suggesting that the two communities should share sweats and exchange greetings and celebrate together by mixing up with each other, such shrewd-politicians who use the veil of secularism and promote communal hatred would only suggest segregation and isolation. Shame. And secondly, is she suggesting that the Muslim-dominated area should become Exclusively-Muslim-Area ? shame for the second time and let me expose such real communal wolves hiding beneath the sheep clothing. If she was real secular, she would have rather asked our Muslim brothers to welcome others and share the area of other communities as well because we live in one unified country where there are no internal boundaries ! While such shrewd politicians need to be shunned completely, Muslim brothers should now learn to be smart and understand these wolves so as not to fall prey to such cheap prefators!!
