Guwahati: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat, who is in Assam on a two-day visit, claimed that since 1930, there has been a systematic attempt to increase the number of Muslims in India.
He alleged that this effort by Muslims to increase their numbers was not intended to any economic conditions or intimidation or fear, but to increase their ‘Dominance’ in the nation.
Bhagwat while launching a book, titled ‘Citizenship debate over NRC and CAA-Assam and the Politics of History’ here in Guwahati on Wednesday said, “The plan was to spread the domination of Muslims in the country and convert it into ‘Pakistan’. This is related to the Punjab, Sindh, Assam and Bengal. In fact, to some extent, it did turn it to be true, there was a partition, there was a creation of Punjab province in West and Bengal province in East. However, it didn’t happen the way it was planned, Assam was not part of Pakistan. There was a demand for the corridor between the West and East provinces of Pakistan, but it remained unsuccessful.”
The RSS chief also claimed that partition has led to the formation of two types of people, one the Muslim refugees who had escaped from Pakistan due to intense fear of death, while the other section of people (knowingly or unknowingly) came here in India to double their numbers.
“These people still receive support from those people with the same ideologies,” Mohan Bhagwat added further.
