Mangaluru Mar 21, 2016: Dakshina Kannada District Congress Interim President Ibrahim Kodijaal has said that acts of BJP and Sangha Parivaar are against Hindu religion.
Speaking to the press at Congress office on Monday March 21, he questioned whether the killing two people over cattle trafficking issue in Jarkhand and the other incident in Uttar Pradesh wherein a family was pulled out and beaten up to death suspecting that there was beef in their refrigerator, were not acts of terrorism.
He also said that since the past few years India was turning out be an intolerant nation which had adverse impact on the development of the nation.
Pointing out to BJP leader Ananth Kumar Hegde’s statement that “as long as Islam exists in this world, terrorism will also exists” Ibrahim Kodijaal said that Ananth Kumar has forgotten the Hindu Veda Vakya “Sarva Jana Sukhino Bhavanthu (May all people be happy). His comments are against all the religious principles, he said adding that Islam stands for peace and strongly condemns terrorism.
Speaking about Puttur temple invitation row, Kodijaal said that these allegations are against the Hindu religion. "What was wrong in printing Deputy Commissioner AB Ibrahim’s name? It is not a crime," he said.
