Amit Shah’s intention behind NRC is to target Muslims and create hatred: Madani

New Delhi, Oct 8: Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s intention behind implementing the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in India is to target Muslims and create communal hatred in the society, feels Maulana Mahmood Madani, head of the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (JUH).

Reacting to Mr. Shah’s speech in Kolkata on October 1, the leader of the largest group of Islamic scholars and ulemas said it was a sign that Muslims would be sent to detention camps of Assam. He said that the NRC is not only discriminatory but it will give opportunity to forces that are hostile to the nation.

“There is no issue if NRC is conducted across India. But it appears from the tone and tenor of the Home Minister that he is targeting Muslims. Such an attitude will generate hatred and promote enmity among different sections of the Indian society and raise suspicion about the Muslims,” a statement from the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind said quoting from Mr. Madani’s comments.

The Home Minister had in Kolkata hinted that only Muslims will be affected by the NRC as he had asked non-Muslims not to fear about NRC. His comments came up during Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s visit to Delhi which ended on Sunday.

Mr. Madani said the comments were both “improper” and “discriminatory”.

He said distinction and discrimination on the basis of religion contradicts fundamental rights as enshrined in Articles 14 to 15 of the Constitution and would violate international norms recognised by the United Nations.

“It seems that only Muslims will be kept in detention camps in Assam,” said Maulana Madani. “If happens so, then it will bring bad name for the nation at the international level and will become a tool in the hands of the inimical forces who are bent on tarnishing the image of the country,” he added.

Bengaluru, Aug 3: All those who met Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, who has tested positive for Covid-19, in the last three-four days will have to be quarantined, Medical Education Minister Sudhakar K said on Monday.

He also said those who came in contact with Yediyurappa in a couple of programmes in the past week are being traced.

Sudhakar, a medical doctor himself, said Yediyurappa has "very mild cough and his chest is clear."

"I think eight to ten days," he told news agency when asked how long the Chief Minister would have to remain in hospital.

Sudhakar said he is also getting himself tested as a few of his office staff had tested positive.

"All those who met the Chief Minister in the last 3-4 days...ideally they should be quarantined till they receive their results/report. Those who came in contact with him in a couple of programmes will have to isolate themselves and subject themselves for testing," the Minister said.

On the Chief Minister meeting Governor Vajubhai Vala, along with Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai last Friday, Sudhakar said as a result "They also become primary contacts. Ideally, they should also be quarantined and tested."

Yediyurappa who was hospitalised on Sunday night after testing positive for Covid-19 was "doing well" and is "clinically stable", the hospital treating him said.

The 77-year old leader is being monitored by a team of doctors at the Manipal hospital here.

"He is doing well, is clinically stable and will be monitored closely by our team," the hospital said in a statement late last night.

"I have tested positive for coronavirus. Whilst I am fine, I am being hospitalised as a precaution on the recommendation of doctors. I request those who have come in contact with me recently to be observant and exercise self-quarantine," Yediyurappa had said in his tweet.

Yediyurappa was in home quarantine a couple of weeks ago, after some staff members in his home office were found infected with the virus. Subsequently, he tested negative for Covid-19.
