Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind Slams Modi Govt’s ‘Irrational’ Support To French President Macron

Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind on Thursday condemned what it called the Indian government’s “irrational” and “one-sided” support of French President Macron.

It said that the Modi government’s reaction over the recent development in France is not only condemnable but also shows the “anti-Muslim mind-set” of the present dispensation.

“Modi government’s attitude has pained the entire Muslim world, including 20 crore Muslims of India”, General Secretary of the Jamiat, Mahmood Madani, said.

“It is strange that the Narendra Modi government had extended its support to the French President over the latest development in France but totally ignored Macron’s own condemnable act”, he added.

Madani was commenting on Modi government’s reaction on the verbal spat between French President Macron and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.

In an official statement on Wednesday, the government said that it “strongly deplores the personal attacks in unacceptable language on President Emmanuel Macron in violation of the most basic standards of international discourse”.

“Modi government’s latest support extended to Macron is against our declared foreign policy which has always been rational, neutral, non-aligned and based on principles of justice and propriety”, Madani said.

The manner in which Modi government is supporting Macron only reflects enmity and hostility towards Islam and hate against Muslims”, he added.
