Terrorist links of Tablighi Jamaat include Masood Azhar, Osama bin Laden

Maulana Masood Azhar, the founder of the terrorist group Harkat ul Mujahideen which underwent several name changes to finally become Jaish-e-Mohammed, is not only a member of the Tablighi Jamaat but also a once close associate of Osama bin Laden

Senior Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has once again in news for an awkward statement. Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, leader of the Congress parliamentary party in the Lok Sabha, has called Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah infiltrators. Taking a dig at the government over the National Register of Citizens (NRC), he said, “India is for everyone. Is this India the property of anyone? Everyone has equal rights. Amit Shah ji, Narendra Modi ji, you are intruders yourselves. Your home is Gujarat and you have come to Delhi. You are a migrant yourself. Whether your stay in Delhi is legitimate or invalid will be found out later.”

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Union government is contemplating implementation of the NRC across the country. The home minister has promised to implement NRC across the country and repeating it in Assam.

Speaking to news agency ANI, Chowdhury said, “They want to show that they will drive away Muslims. They do not have the courage to drive one Muslim away. Muslims are citizens of our country, why will they leave? Hindustan is for everyone; it is for Hindus; it is for Muslims. Ganga-Jamuna is the tehzeeb (culture) if Hindustan. India was built with the cooperation of all. But they are telling us they will let the Hindus stay, drive the Muslims away.”

Chowdhury said, “By repeating the term ‘NRC’ ad nauseam, an atmosphere has been created where real citizens of India are thinking what will happen to them. People do not sit with all the papers. Because this is our country, we vote. Now, what is the need to collect so many papers? Those poor people, who are tribals, backward, who are not educated… do they ever have all the papers? When a poor man wakes up in the morning, he thinks of eking out a living, earning his bread for the day. He does not have time to think about so many papers. Today he is scared.”

The INC MP from Behrampore had earlier put a foot firmly in the mouth when he said in the Lok Sabha during the process of removal of Article 370 that Jammu and Kashmir was not an internal matter of India. He later clarified he was seeking clarification from the government and his statement was misunderstood.
