Fascism Will Fail to Defeat a Committed Society by Raids, Arrests and Threats – SDPI

The RSS led central government that has lost its face due to negative economic growth and the gross failure in handling the Covid19 pandemic is now in the process of diverting people’s attention by witch-hunting Muslim charity organisations in the name of “terror-funding.” The NIA raids conducted at the office of Charity Alliance headed by Zafarul Islam Khan, who is also the Editor of The Milli Gazette and former President, All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat and Managing Director, Pharos Media and Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; and office of Human Welfare Foundation in Delhi are the latest attention-diverting exercise of the fascist government. Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) strongly condemns these raids aimed at defaming transparently working charity organisations.

The Union Government is confident that any hogwash they carry out will be heartly welcomed and supported by their bigot followers, if the acts are tagged patriotic and against the Muslim ‘traitors.’ The fully saffronised national media will do the work of successfully spreading any false and fake news and whatever nonsense the RSS government vomits.

Zafarul Islam Khan has been a thorn in the flesh of Sanghis for his strong anti-fascist stand. The government had futilely attempted to nab him after raiding his house a few months back. The charity organisations, Charity Alliance and Human Welfare Foundation have been in the charity field for years, working for the upliftment of the socially, educationally and economically backward and downtrodden sections of the society in north India. Leaders of these orgnisations had been in the forefront of Citizenship agitations, the very reason for the fascists to target the organisations led by them.

It will better for the government to remember that its efforts to stifle the opposing and dissenting voices will end up in huge failure. Raids, arrests and fake cases cannot defeat the steadfastness of a community committed to fight for their rights and fight fascism.
