The VHP on Thursday attacked outgoing Vice President Hamid Ansari over his comment that there was a sense of insecurity among Muslims, and accused him of following the path of Mohammed Ali Jinnah. “With his remarks that Muslims feel insecure in the country, Ansari has insulted the post of the Vice President, the government and the entire Hindu community,” Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Joint General Secretary Surendra Jain said here.

He alleged that Ansari made the statement to set his “political agenda”. “It is unfortunate that Ansari followed Jinnah rather than adopting the paths of former President APJ Abdul Kalam and freedom fighter Maulana Azad,” Jain said.

“By making such statements it seems, like Jinnah, Ansari also wants to push country towards another partition,” the VHP leader added.

Ansari, whose second five-year term as the vice president ends today, has said in an interview that there is a feeling of unease and a sense of insecurity among Muslims in the country, claiming that the “ambience of acceptance” is now under threat.

    About 1400 years back, before the birth of Ansari’s faith, people were worshiping power of nature in the form of deities/idol with rituals similar to what is practiced in India. Rebellion ideology was evolved against then practiced rituals and social practices. Jihadi poison is one of the pillars of rebellion faith. In that Elimination of non believers- enemy of their faith reserves haven for him and his followers. Global objective is to convert entire world, only for his faith. Followers have undisputed faith that the remaining small portion will be converted in line with the already gathered lands. Therefore, chanting onde matarum leads to idol worship to the rebellion doctrine against global objective Ansari is the beneficiary of the looted wealth and has Jihadi pillar. When in minority, all over the world, these beneficiaries express insecurity to gain sympathy from the breeding ground called secularism

      what history is this? where did you pick your history from? kindly stop fantasizing. there never was any india to speak of - it was a region of 1000s of kingdoms - divisive, fractious, infighting, treacherous and riven in the horrors of the caste system. you need to understand the fact that a tiny army of invaders could actually conquer colonise and rule such a huge region. it could not have happened without the collusion of the native rulers with the invaders. you need to thank the muslims first then the british for unifying this country into india

      Unfortunate comment by the Respected Vice President. Why? He has not mentioned Hindus insecure in Bengal where arson and looting was trusted upon by majority Muslims in certain pockets of Bengal

        Till you enjoy the power there is no security threat and once you lose power you will insecure and in that case why not go over to Pakistan and try to live the rest of the life and as a Muslim you are safer at the Muslim Nation is it NOT ??? The simple query is will you be allowed in Pakistan to talk freely as is being done in India and why not check up with them and then answer ????
