NEW YORK CITY — The Muslims living in and around the most important city of the United States responded in large numbers, at a very short notice, to the call for a protest rally against the persecution of Muslims in India and the repeated insults to the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, and the Islamic holy places in Arabia by Hindutva leaders and the leaders of the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).

New York City has the largest population of Muslims in the US who are also politically influential.

Dr Shaik Ubaid ,the President of ASPAIRE , said that the demonisation of the Muslims in India has escalated alarmingly under the current BJP rulers. The chief ministers of various states competing with one another in issuing statements that dehumanize and demonize Muslims.

“Every Hindu festival is being used to not only provoke Muslims with insulting slogans and attacks on mosques but when the Muslims defend their homes they are arrested and their houses are bulldozed, “ Dr Ubaid said pointing out to the videos of the police firing on Muslims during the attacks by Hindutva mobs.

“It is clear that the BJP and RSS want Muslims to react so that they can keep the country polarised. This will not only cause a great harm to the social fabric of India but will also hurt India’s international image and economy, and drive away investment. It is about time that the Hindu community carry out its responsibility of defending the religion and the nation from the Hindu supremacists of the RSS and its fronts,” Dr Ubaid said

Habeeb Ahmed a prominent Muslim leader from New York said, “More than 3000 Muslims of so many different ethnic backgrounds have rallied at such a short notice on a weekday in the busy city of New York. We hope that the Indian Consul General will communicate this fact to the Indian government.”

Similar rallies are being planned to be held in all major cities of the US, he informed.

More than 3000 Muslims took part in the protest in Manhatten.
