    Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal on Monday reached out to Muslim intelligentsia and discussed issues related their community.

    During an interaction at the India Islamic Centre with its members, Kejriwal said communalism was a bigger issue than corruption. On being asked why he chose not to fight against Narendra Modi, the Bhartiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate in the Lok Sabha election, he said: “Let him (Modi) first declare if he is going to contest the Lok Sabha polls and from where, only then our party will take a call on it.”

    Kejriwal also said the party had found a strong candidate in Kumar Vishwas to fight Rahul Gandhi in Amethi.

    He also promised to field as many Muslim candidates as possible to increase the representation of the community. He said the AAP, if elected, would take up the issue of Section 341 of the IPC for compensating riot victims. Section 341 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) — Punishment for wrongful restrain — is an oft-debated topic in connection with alleged wrongful detention of Muslim youth as terror suspects.

    “Our members wanted to interact with Kejriwal and know about the party’s policies and in general what can be the party’s commitment for the community,” said Sirajuddin Qureshi, president of the India Islamic Centre.

    Qureshi’s invitation to Kejriwal was originally made when the latter was still the Delhi chief minister but the meeting was held as scheduled even when the AAP government had resigned 10 days ago.

    An unidentified man questioned Kejriwal over the issue of donation collection by the AAP, leading to temporary disruption.

    Ashutosh, AAP’s spokesperson and the party’s candidate designate for the Chandni Chowk seat was also present on the occasion.

    B Team of congress could not hide their secularist agenda. Congrats to AK for openly supporting Sonia gandhi & UPA.

    What does AK mean by communalism? Does he mean secularism means appeasing minorities & suppressing majority Hindus. What crap is this.

    So Kejriwal has abandoned his anti-corruption plank also. What next.

    Raising the hopes and then crying off and leaving all in a lurch, is the biggest crime - because that is DECEIT!

    Nothing could be worse than a Breach of Trust!

    Communalism is horrid, but the insincere dexterity in defining communalism for political gains and making it a mere vote catching label is a worse crime.

    The real image of what is secularism and anti communialism is playing itself out in Bihar as of today!

    Paswan takes the cake and he represents the cheerleaders of the secular credential that is flaunted by political parties for political expediency to garner votes.

    The split in RJD by Nitish is another example to show who is the champion of the 'minorities' - Nitish or Laloo!

    Kejriwal is either quick learner or it has always been his plan to start off with corruption as an issue and than use popular issue like communalism and price rise like all other politicians. I feel if he continues with communalism vs secularism it will only help the BJP.

    And this AK had met the controversial Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan.

    This is Hypocrisy. Their party is no different from SP. Proxy of Congress.

    Like Arun Shori said secularism is most prostituted word in India, AK is its new customer now.

    You lose when you say communal these days.

    When this option touches your tongue it means there is stroke in your intellect centre of the brain.

    In my understanding if a Muslim gets impressed by such slogan it means he has missed the train by many hours or days again.

    AK is trying to make Indian Muslims to stop thinking that they are not having any support and here again its related to the issue of common man. People wants security be it from any community. Ak is talking to Indian Muslims who are Indians. AK is touching all those issues which the nation wants answers.

    Mr Modi can talk about bangladeshi Hindus but AK cant talk about Indian Muslims issues :facepalm:

    It isn't communalism which is a issue. Communalism affects everyone, not just minority which unfortunately some do believe.

    The issue is more about how the word is used. Calling and selling people as victims is a common and old tactic for vote bank politics. Congress started it and now AK has joined the team.
