Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has welcomed the Delhi Assembly Elections results saying Politics of hate and polarization has been defeated in a big way.
In a statement issued to the media, the JIH President ’s President Syed Sadatullah Hussaini said, “Jamaat-e-Islami Hind welcomes the results of the Delhi elections. Politics of hate and polarization has been defeated in a big way. The whole of India is thankful to Delhi voters for teaching a big lesson to the politicians who peddled hate and bigotry. The voters of Delhi have proved that “India can change”. This has been possibly the worst election in the history of independent India in terms of the practice of hate speeches, inflammatory slogans and open practice of communalism and polarization. The Election Commission was unable to rein in the blatant violation of the moral code of conduct. All possible methods to polarize the electorate around communal lines were deployed but credit must go to the voters of Delhi who understood this nefarious design and ignored their calls to vote for hate and division in the garb of nationalism and unity.”
Mr. Hussaini further said: “We hope that the people of India will learn a lesson from the Delhi elections and defeat those who play the politics of division, promote hatred against the minorities, and raise slogans for violence. We hope the Delhi CM will ensure the passing of resolution against the CAA and stop the process of NPR. The ruling party must accept that their strategy of communal polarization is morally wrong and harmful to the nation. Demonizing the peaceful and democratic protest at Shaheen Bagh and making it a core election issue has backfired and the people have responded positively in favor of democracy and development. The election results also indicate that the people of India reject the CAA and NRC and must be withdrawn by the government immediately and unconditionally.”
