Muslims should also come forward to protect cow: Ramdas Athawale

Some Muslims faced atrocities in the name of "gau raksha," pointed out Union Minister Ramdas Athawale today while urging the Muslims to come forward to protect the cow, which is revered by the Hindus.

Releasing a book on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, titled 'Musalman Aur Yogi Adityanath', Athawale batted for Hindu-Muslim unity, saying it was needed to make India a strong country.

Book highlights Adityanath's life, work, equation with UP Muslims

The book highlights Adityanath's life and works, his political-evolution and equation with the UP Muslims. The author of the book, Irfan Sheikh, a journalist, said he had certain anxieties over Adityanath's fiery statements but had a change of heart after seeing him weeping in Parliament.

Couplet

Athawale also recited a self-composed couplet eulogizing Adityanath

Athawale also recited a self-composed couplet eulogizing Adityanath and asserting that the people of the country would defeat those driving a wedge between Hindus and Muslims.

"UP mein chamak raha hai Yogi Adityanath ka tara, Hindu-Musalman ko ladane walon ka baja denge barah, (Adityanath's star is shining in UP, we will defeat those pitting Hindus and Muslims against each other)," recited the Maharashtra-based minister.

Claims

Athawale asserted that Modi, Adityanath are not anti-Muslims

The Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment asserted that Modi and Adityanath "are not anti-Muslim," which was reflected in the Prime Minister's "Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas" slogan.

Athawale said Hindus and Muslims should refrain from fighting over the Ayodhya issue and wait for the Supreme Court verdict on it while claiming that there was originally a Buddhist shrine on the land.
