Following a two-day convention of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, the body on Sunday decided to constitute a committee called ‘Defend Constitutional Rights, Committee’ to step up propaganda countering the anti-minority decisions of various state governments and the Center. The spokesperson of the body said that ever since the formation of the new government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Muslims are ‘increasingly feeling insecure.’
“We’re concerned about the situation in the country which has worsened after Narendra Modi became PM. Not only Muslims, but Christians are also feeling uncomfortable,” the board assistant general secretary Abdul Rahim Qureshi said at a press conference at the end of its two-day convention in Jaipur.
