Muslim population growth no threat: Farooq Abdullah

JAMMU: National Conference patron Dr Farooq Abdullah has said that there was “no threat to Bharat” with the growth of the Muslim community.

“I don’t know about their (RSS) statement but I can tell you one thing that India belongs to all of faiths- whether we are Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs or Christians. 

Whoever is an Indian, the country belongs to him,” he said, adding that there was no such thing that the Muslim population had grown and they posed a danger. “There is no such danger. A Muslim is as Indian as anybody else is,” Abdullah told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Jammu.

He accused successive governments at the Centre for “dividing” the people on religious and caste lines in Jammu and Kashmir.
