The Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM), a Muslim organisation affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), has decided to send out a message to the members of the minority community that they should shun eating beef and adopt cows.
The MRM, which is scheduled to meet at Piran Kaliyar (the dargah of 13th century Sufi saint of Chishti Order — Alauddin Ali Ahmed Sabir Kalyari) near Roorkee on May 5 and 6, will advise Muslims to learn about the benefits of cows.
Indresh Kumar, a senior RSS pracharak, who also is the convener of MRM, said that the objective of the two-day long meeting is to interact with the Muslim community and make them arrive towards a consensus on most raging issues including triple talaq and construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.
“Even the Quran says cow meat is not to be eaten. The purpose of the meeting is to put forward some thinking points in front of the decision-makers of the community and arrive at a consensus,” Kumar said.
Kumar further said that the ‘Arabs shunned beef for many years and that eating beef is something that has come up recently among Muslims’.
“Over 150 Muslim families across India are already running gaushalas. We have identified them and we want them to be the examples for the community,” he said.
Kumar also said that the MRM will ask Madrasas to train students on the ‘ethos of Bharat’.
On Ram Mandir issue, Kumar said that ‘the temple will be built where the masjid stood’.
“Many people have proved that Lord Ram was born there. Muslims can decide where Babri Masjid should come up through discussion,” he said.
The issue of Ram mandir is presently pending in the Supreme Court, which recently ruled that the matter was ‘sensitive’ and parties involved should ‘settle out of court’.
