Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 11 (BPNS)
Kerala state unit president of BJP, K. Surendran has said that the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) is an out-and-out communal political party and that communalism is evident even in its name. He was speaking at the state office bearers meet of the Kerala unit of the BJP at Thiruvananthapuram.
In a direct reply to the CPI-M state secretary, M.V. Govindan, Surendran said,” The CPI-M is trying to whitewash the Muslim League and the statement of its state secretary, M.V. Govindan that League is not a communal party is hoodwinking the general public.”
Surendran said that the people of the country have not forgotten the regressive position taken by the Muslim League in the maintenance case filed by Muslim woman, Shah Bano against her husband who had divorced her. He said that League was out and out against the woman in the maintenance case and added that CPI-M was trying to portray such a party as secular.
He also said that the Muslim League had supported the partition of India and was against the interests of our nation. The BJP Kerala state president said that CPI-M is now an opportunistic political party and said that while CPI-M is trying to rope League into the Left front what message that party was providing to the majority Hindu community of Kerala?
Surendran also said that the fights have already commenced in the CPI regarding the CPI-M’s reported move to rope in the Muslim League.
