Kerala is now Jihadis’ land: Togadia

via PNS | Kozhikode published on January 25, 2010

Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international secretary general Pravin Kumar Togadia has said that Kerala, God’s Own Country, has become Jihadis’ land as it had transformed into a breeding ground for terror modules in the region. Talking to newsmen in Kozhikode on Monday, he described Kerala as the Kashmir of South India.

The terror elements operating in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka had established their links with Kerala if the recent developments were any indication. Togadia said. This had also pointed to the stark reality that the CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government in the State had miserably failed in containing the menace, he alleged.

Preaching Jihad was the main cause of growing terrorism any political party attempting to glorify Jihad was not being sincere to the nation, Togadia said. Several other political parties were as responsible as the ruling CPI(M) and the Left front in not taking effective measures t contain the menace of terrorism in the State.

Referring to discussions on job reservations, the VHP leader said that the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government at the Centre was attempting to rob the 27 per cent quota allocated to Other Backward Classes to appease minorities in the country by increasing ten and five per cent more to Muslims and Christians, respectively as recommended by Justice Rangnath Mishra Commission.

He described the move as a dacoity on Hindu community, adding that the VHP would mobilize students and youth if the Government went ahead with the proposal. On the alleged move to give below-poverty line status to Muslims, he said the move was an affront to non-Muslims.

A campaign would be launched throughout the country against it, he said. The main backwardness of the country was due to population growth as people of a particular community were able to have multiple wives and many children, Togadia said.

Speaking at a function the other day here, Togadia said the terror attacks and Jihadi operations in India were aimed at destabilizing the country’s economy. The aim was to create widespread miseries among people through large-scale unemployment created by terror attacks that destabilized the economy, he said. He alleged that Kerala was on the way of becoming the biggest terror base after Afghanistan.
