Aligarh Muslim University Teachers Association (AMUTA) on Tuesday demanded the Election Commission to “reimpose” ban on BJP leader Amit Shah for “vitiating the atmosphere by his communal rhetoric”.

“In his speech at Azamgarh on Sunday, Amit Shah had shown disrespect to EC, slandering the entire Muslim community of Azamgarh by branding them as terrorists,” Aftab Alam, Secretary AMUTA, said in a statement.

Alam said, “the BJP was trying to repeat the dangerous game in Eastern UP which they played in Muzafarnagar last year just for polarising votes on gross communal lines.”

“Assam is on the boil because of the subtle but dangerous game played by the BJP PM candidate Narendra Modi during his campaigns speeches in Assam,” he said adding, “at Varanasi  Modi flouted all norms while filing his nomination with the help of a media blitz.”

“If the Election commission fails to reign in Amit Shah and his party colleagues then as a last resort we will approach the President of India to save the country from such deeply divisive moves,” Alam said.

“Today the whole world is keenly watching whether India is able to preserve our centuries old traditions of pluralistic society or whether we choose to fitter away all this in the quest for power,” he added.

    It is true that all Muslims are not terrorists but many of them are supporting terrorists activities. That is why in Azad Maidan case such wide spread violence has taken place. Why not nationalists Muslim have came forward to give witness against criminals. Why in Bhiwandi even after Police men were brutally killed not a single Muslim has came forward to book a culprit. In Maidan case atleast 100 criminals would have arrested then only people would believe that all are not criminals. In Azamgarh if Muslims come forward to eliminate criminal and terrorist activities in their own interest, name of Azamgarh will not be bad.

    In a plain word - AMU was at front of creating stan. The idea born here. If Hindu speaks he is communal . What the heck the AMU teachers have to do with election and politics. They should be bared form teaching as they are openly communal.

    It is fearing this Hindu violence that Congress doesn't take action and will pay the price in this election.
