Managing Director of Siasat Daily, Zaheeruddin Ali Khan, while addressing the valedictory ceremony of the workshop on journalism organized by Majlis-e-Islah wa tanzeem, Bhatkal, has urged Muslims to vote wisely in 2019 and stressed on the need for political vision. Siasat Daily is an Urdu language newspaper published from Hyderabad, Telangana.
Zaheeruddin stated that information was money and urged the audience to learn English. He claimed that foreign media is in the hands of 50 lakh Jews and in India, media is in the hands of Brahmins.
He said, “Look at CNN, look at BBC, look at every newspaper and they are in the hands of the Jews. And not merely that, even the Hollywood film industry is in the hands of the Jews. Their population numbers at only 5 million in the USA and yet they control every news outlet. Similarly, in Hindustan, the media is controlled by the Brahmins.”
“Today, RSS is our enemy, BJP is our enemy, Congress is our enemy as well, every political party is our enemy. No one wants us to develop but despite all this enmity, our community is making progress.” He went on to say, “Wherever our community makes progress, violence is deliberately instigated to destroy our economy. All this is the work of the Brahmin lobby and in the game they play, we are merely pawns. They are Knights, they are Bishops. And we are pawns. And how could pawns ever compete?”
In an interesting advice to the Muslim community, Zaheerudin urged the community to not take to the streets and campaign against the BJP in large numbers as it then leads to Hindu consolidation in favour of the BJP. Instead, he advised, they should do whatever’s necessary on the last day. “If you go outside wearing skull caps and lungis to campaign for the Congress, 80% of the Hindus consolidate after getting the impression that Muslims want the Congress to win.”
Zaheeruddin also asserted that Muslims need to plan for the next 20 years. According to him, no political party truly cares about the welfare of Muslims but the ‘small devil’ is better than the ‘big devil’. Emphasizing on the importance of the 2019 General Elections, he said that if BJP wins 2019 elections, India will no more remain a democracy. “If we commit a mistake in 2019, then our future generations will not forgive us”, he added.
