Thiruvananthapuram: Kanthapuram A. P. Aboobacker Musliyar, the Grand Mufti of India and President of the Islamic Community of India, Tuesday said calling genuine grievances of Indian Muslims a Pakistan sponsored propaganda is unfair.

"We need to demarcate between Pakistan-orchestrated propaganda against India and the genuine grievances raised by our countrymen", Kanthapuram A. P. Aboobacker Musliyar said.

Kanthapuram A. P. Aboobacker Musliyar was responding to IANS reporter who asked his reaction on what he called "Pakistani-sponsored Islam phobia propaganda in West Asia against India".

The question was seemingly asked at the backdrop of concerns raised by some prominent Arab scholars, human rights activists and also some of the members of the UAE Royal Family, over rampant Islamophobic and anti-Islam, anti-Muslim campaign against Indian Muslims in the local media.

The campaign has also led to the violence against Muslims and call to boycott Muslims.

Kanthapuram A. P. Aboobacker Musliyar in a sense endorsed the concerns raised by the people in Middle East and West Asia and asked the government to address the actual grievances of the community.

"We need to see what Pakistan does as a part of their foreign policy objectives and this has been going on since 1947. This is an issue which we need to tackle with our proactive foreign policy. But the genuine grievances of our citizens must be dealt with internally within our democratic framework", he told the IANS reporter.

"The dignity of the nation is the pre-eminence of its citizens too. I get many opportunities to represent Indian Muslims in various international forums and I make use of these opportunities to uphold the greatness and tradition of our country", he said.

"I wish and pray that such opportunities remain in abundance so as to uphold truthfully the traditions and pre-eminence of our country", he said.
