New Delhi: Jamiat Ulema e Hind, the largest organistion of Muslims in India, Thursday condemned what it called "irrational" and "one sided" support of French President Macron.

Stressing that the Jamiat has always been vocal against violence in all its kind, it said Modi government's reaction over the recent development in France is not only condemnable but also shows the "anti-Muslim mind-set" of the present dispensation.

“It is strange that the Narendra Modi government had extended its support to the French President over the latest development in France but totally ignored Macron’s own condemnable act”, General Secretary of the Jamiat, Mahmood Madani, said.

Madani was commenting on Modi government’s reaction on the verbal spat between French President Macron and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.

In an official statement on Wednesday, the government said that it "strongly deplores the personal attacks in unacceptable language on President Emmanuel Macron in violation of the most basic standards of international discourse".

“Modi government’s latest support extended to Macron is against our declared foreign policy which has always been rational, neutral, non-aligned and based on principles of justice and propriety”, Madani said.

“The manner in which Modi government is supporting Macron only reflects enmity and hostility towards Islam and hate against Muslims”, he added.

“The constitution of India regards all religions and religious leaders with equal respect. India’s concept of democracy is radically different from that of France which is against religious pluralism and is based on anti-religious concept”, he said.

"Painful for the entire Muslim world"

“Modi government’s attitude has pained the entire Muslim world, including 20 crore Muslims of India”, Madani said.

Commenting on the beheading of a middle-school teacher, Samuel Paty, the Jamiat said its stand which is against violence or acts of terror are clear.

“The Jamiat never justified or support violence or act of terrorism. In fact, following the 2015 terror attack in France, the Jamiat was at the forefront in condemning it and was among the first to stand in solidarity with France”, Madani said.
