Kejriwal meets Muslim clerics for Jan Lokpal movement

Monday November 14, 2011 09:40:19 PM, IANS

Lucknow: Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal met several Muslim clerics and intellectuals here Monday to garner support from the minority community for the Jan Lokpal movement, officials said.

According to sources in India Against Corruption (IAC), Kejriwal's meetings were also aimed to counter the Congress' allegation that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), and not Muslims, were supporting the Jan Lokpal movement.

"Though corruption affects all of us, it hits the poor and downtrodden the most. And due to the poor financial conditions of our Muslim brothers, they get more affected by corruption," Kejriwal told reporters.

"It's our hard-earned money that is being misused... We all should get united for fighting corruption, which in turn would help in development of our country," he added.

IAC officials claimed clerics and intellectuals, whom Kejriwal met, assured him to extend their full support to the Jan Lokpal movement.

"Those representing the minority community in the meeting were of the view that irrespective of caste, creed and religion, people of the country should come forward to root out the social menace," said an IAC activist of Lucknow.
