Most Muslims are not terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslims

This is a real kicker According to the resolution taken at the meeting, the demand for the mosque is not only in the interest of Muslim community alone but also to maintain secularism in the state and for peaceful coexistence between different communities. …..

Excuse me??  Promoting Islam so as to maintain secularism?!! What a cruel joke. That is what is called Muslim doublespeak.  Fooling and Abusing secular India to promote their extreme Islamic agenda.

IMPHAL, Sep 28: A demand for the building of a mosque inside the historic Kangla fort by Muslim (Meetei Pangal) based civil organizations received sharp criticism from Cultural Preservation Centre, Imphal on Sunday.

Mention may be made that a joint meeting of various civil society bodies of minority Muslims (Meitei Pangal) in Thoubal district last Friday (September 16) resolved to press the state government for building of a mosque inside the historic Kangla fort and another at Sajiwa jail. They also planned to submit a memorandum to the state chief minister, O Ibobi Singh regarding their demand.

According to the resolution taken at the meeting, the demand for the mosque is not only in the interest of Muslim community alone but also to maintain secularism in the state and for peaceful coexistence between different communities. It will also make Meitei Pangals have a sense of belonging to the historic Kangla fort and Sajiwa jail where many Muslim inmates are facing problems due to the lack of a place of worship, they said.

Sharply reacting to the demand by the Muslim community, the Cultural Preservation Centre, Manipur, an apex body of various culture based organizations in a statement today said that it was unfortunate to put up such a demand for a mosque in such a sacred place of the Meetei community where the temple of Pakhangba, the Supreme God of the Meetei religion is located since time immemorial.

In a similar way, if some sections of the people demand making of temples at places housing other religious sites like Mecca or Jerusalem, would it be agreeable, it asked.

The demand may snowball from a small matter to a big issue like that of Babri Masjid which is yet to be solved, it said. The demand may be a threat to the long time peaceful co-existence and harmony among the different communities settling in the state, it added.

The body also recounted that knowing the fact that Kangla fort is a sacred place for the Meeteis, India’s Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on November 20, 2004 handed the fort to the state government bringing to an end its occupation by the armed forces since before India got independence. It further said that on October 16, 1949, the then Governor General Raja Goplacharya ordered protection of Kangla as a Meetei’s holy place under the Monument Act while reiterating that any other religion should not try to disturb the historic site of the fort.
