Naqvi says dignity of minorities not ‘political propaganda’

By NewsGram Staff Writer

New Delhi: On Tuesday, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi clarified that the security, dignity and identity of minority communities wasn’t a “political propaganda”; instead it was a “candour commitment” to empower the minorities.

The minister, who holds charge of the minority affairs portfolio said, “Irrespective of caste and religion, the Narendra Modi government treats every citizen of the country as an Indian and inclusive growth of all sections of society is its priority.”

While addressing students and scholars in a seminar on “Shifting Paradigm: Re-envisioning Minority Issues and Minority Studies in India” organised at Jamia Millia Islamia, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that the “vote politics” is played on the issues of social, economic and educational welfare of the minorities.

Minorities, especially Muslims, are generally left behind on the path of development even after spending money on their growth and empowerment. He blamed the loot of public money by middlemen as the major reason behind this problem.

Naqvi further said that this situation has “completely changed” after the NDA government came to power; “With the mantra of ‘Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas‘, the environment of fear created by some political parties in the minds of minority communities against the BJP has been removed.”
Naqvi urged the minority communities to rightly assess the Modi government on the basis of its work and not through the eyes of so-called “champions of secularism”. Then only they will be able to understand that the government is committed towards their security and dignity.
