While addressing an event organised to celebrate 75 years of RSS-affiliated magazines Organiser and Panchjanya, BJP chief ministers spoke mostly about various Islamophobic schemes and projects in their states.
The Eid prayer was not conducted on roads for the first time in Uttar Pradesh, and “the volume of the mosque loudspeaker has gone down” following the BJP government’s crackdown, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said, according to Indian Express.
“Now, you must have seen for the first time that Eid namaz was not held on roads. Now, you must have heard that either the volume of the mosque loudspeaker has gone down or the loudspeaker has been removed completely,” Yogi told the audience who were at the Hindutva group’s gathering.
The UP CM who spoke about how a grand Ram temple is being built in Ayodhya, shared his projects in Kashi Vishwanath temple and pilgrimage sites such as Mathura, Vrindavan and Chitrakoot.
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma claimed that the shutting down madrassas and bringing Uniform Civil Code is for benefit of Muslims.
Sarma said the word “madrassa” should go extinct if Indian Muslims are to progress in education.
The CM of the northeast state had initiated an Islamophobic move to shut down government-funded madrassas in the state.
He also spoke about the NRC and “illegal immigrants” in his state.
He went on to say: ‘First we have to ensure we do not lose more land (to migrants), more constituencies… Later when the NRC is implemented the definition of what is legal and illegal will come and then we get a chance to do more.”
Uttarakhand chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami told the RSS event that his state will form a “special committee” to implement Uniform Civil Code.
A special drive was on to identify infiltrators in Uttarakhand, Dhami said.
The anti-conversion law will be made “stronger,” Dhami added.
Goa’s Pramod Sawant said his state already has a Uniform Civil Code, and urged other states to implement it, Indian Express reported.
