Congress MLA from Gujarat has given a big statement regarding conversion of religion in the midst of the ongoing discussion on mob lynching in the Gujarat Assembly. Congress MLA Ghiyasuddin Sheikh said in Gujarat Assembly that in the last 2 years more Muslim girls have accepted Hinduism and married Hindu boys. The Congress MLA said that such social incidents should be presented in front of the public.
Congress MLA Ghiyasuddin Shaikh while speaking on mob lynching said, “Two days ago in Maninagar a Muslim youth was with a Hindu female friend. He was beaten up badly. The girl’s father told the police that both the families were close and that the incident was unfortunate. Despite this statement of the father, no complaint has been registered so far.”
The Congress MLA said that, “We have been seeing for the past many years that a community is being targeted. Even news channels are full of Hindu-Muslim discussions. More Muslim daughters have converted to Hinduism and married in the last two years than Hindu sisters who converted for marriage. Last time I gave 100 such examples to the minister. It is a serious matter that such issues are presented in a twisted manner.”
The Congress MLA also accused the Gujarat government of ignoring the minorities. Ghiyasuddin Sheikh said, “Last year a budget of Rs 7,161 lakh was allocated and out of that Rs 2,200 lakh was not spent. This year the government has allocated Rs 8,058 lakh. This is very less considering the minority population.”
The Congress MLA also demanded a minority ministry in Gujarat. Let us tell you that the assembly elections are going to be held in Gujarat at the end of this year. Gujarat is the home state of PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah.
