Simultaneous Central Raids Towards PFI, Waqf Board, Madrasas Increase Questions

By Sushil Kutty

The Thursday morning nationwide crackdown on the Common Entrance of India (PFI) begs the query “Why now, why at this time, why this morning?” It may possibly’t be that the PFI was discovered partaking in “terror-funding”, and “terror actions”, simply the evening earlier than? Terrorists and their handlers take time to arrange terror factories, so what was the rub right here, why now?

Each the Enforcement Directorate and the Nationwide Investigating Company have been concerned within the raids-cum-arrests. By 11 am Thursday, over a 100 PFI activists, half of them high management, have been within the NIA-ED internet. Not simply PFI, but additionally SDPI “terror funding suspects.” For a very long time, a lot to the ire of rightwing hardliners, the Modi authorities had been giving an extended rope to the PFI, which thought-about the Modi authorities a “fascist regime”. The BJP has by no means tried to appropriate the impression, and the nomenclature.

The PFI, nonetheless, took it that the “India” within the “Common Entrance of India” gave it legitimacy to dream huge, and absolutely the proper to show India into an Islamic nation separate from Pakistan. A PFI doc translated “well-liked” to only “10% of the Indian Muslims”. With that many Indian Muslims to again the PFI, the “Hindu fascists” can be out of a rustic!

Once more, not surprisingly, within the PFI handbook, the “PF-Indian” is extra “Bharatiya” than any ornery run-of-the-mill non-Muslim Indian. The audacity of the PFI boast to “takeover India” was solely matched by the odiousness of the PFI declare. The PFI’s patronizing angle cuts by way of like a darkish shadow slices right into a patch of vibrant mild!

Thursday’s raids by the mixed NIA-ED-State Police groups have been at a number of areas, and in a number of states together with in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Assam. Over 100 PFI “activists” have been arrested by Thursday afternoon and transported to Delhi within the “largest ever investigation” to this point of the Kerala-born PFI.

Buzzwords heard all through the morning have been “terror funding”, “coaching camps”, and “radicalization”. The searches have been each at residential, and workplace areas. The media saved speaking of “the proscribed group”, not as soon as mentioning that the PFI wasn’t a proscribed or banned outfit. Likelihood is the subsequent step shall be to ban it.

So, are the Modi Authorities and the BJP again to taking part in “Hindu-Muslim” which is a characteristic earlier than each election? The Gujarat meeting polls are the subsequent ones in line, and the BJP faces a Modi-like avatar in AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal. Additionally, the raids weren’t strictly sudden. Related raids have been carried out on PFI targets in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on September 18.

However how can your complete high PFI management be a bunch of “terrorists” and “terror-funders” if the remainder of the outfit is pure-driven snow, with no blemish or a cost to their names? Everyone is aware of the PFI is blatantly communal, however all people additionally is aware of that for ages, the Modi authorities had refused to take motion towards the PFI’s boisterously noisy actions which included terrorizing cowering non-Muslims within the streets.

So, why the sudden alacrity? The motion towards PFI is available in tandem with makes an attempt to dismantle the Waqf infrastructure, and in addition an try at disciplining the madrasas. Each these actions have been met with resistance, however nothing could possibly be achieved to cease them as a result of each the actions are above board, and inside the precincts of the legislation of the land.

Not surprisingly Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM, whereas asking for the Yogi authorities to again off on the “Waqf survey” concern, has requested that the “courts that cope with Waqf Board infarctions” ought to be handed over to the Muslims! The Centre, nonetheless, is eager that if any entity corrects the Waqf mess to assist the “poor cheated Muslims”, it could be the BJP authorities of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and no one else.

Eight years of Modi rule and the Modi authorities needs to trend a “Muslim coverage”; not clear, but, however a piece in progress. Whereas placing on the radicalized just like the PFI is one a part of it, different aspects cowl loads of the life and way of life of the Indian Muslim. In its personal convoluted method, the RSS/BJP mix needs to carry the Indian Muslim underneath the “sabka saath, sabka vikas, sabka prayas” umbrella.

The actions towards the PFI, the Waqf, and the radicalized Madrasas, come at a time when waves of ‘Hinduphobia’ are buffeting the security and safety of Hindus residing in the UK with the blame squarely positioned on the Hindutva ideology of the BJP lively since Could 2014, an ideology that has saved Modi in energy for 2 phrases, and can doubtless preserve him in energy for longer than thought. The federal government actions towards the PFI may have a debilitating impact on the worldwide battle towards Hindutva. (IPA Service)
