“We need to expose the government and the hate which they have been spreading in the country for political gain.” He added

General Secretary of the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Maulana Mahmood Madni said, “We all know that Muslims-Dalits have been targeted from last four years by a particular political party. I’m glad that prominent faces of both the community have come on board to chalk out a solution of this menace.”

“Today we have very fruitful meeting with all senior leaders. A lot of suggestions have been received from all leaders. Soon we will extract some of the major point from the suggestions and will move forward to it,” Madni added.

The bullet points made at the event “to move forward” includes forming a Dalit-Muslim alliance to fight against negative forces; building a roadmap to save the Constitution by “trouncing” BJP in 2019 general election; exposing the government and his policies; and fighting for the rights of Muslim-Dalits who are being suppressed by the government.
