Mumbai: Several Muslim groups have refused attend an Iftar party, slated to be hosted by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday in Mumbai.
This will be RSS’s first iftar in Mumbai being hosted at Sahyadri Guest House. “Muslims in the name of love jihad and cow vigilantism. Muslims should stay away from such dinners till the time the RSS drops its anti-Muslim policies,” said M A Khalid of All India Milli Council.
Members of 30 Islamic countries are expected to attend the Iftar party being hosted by the RSS. Around 100 attendees for the event are slated to hail from non-Muslim community.
Terming the Iftar party as sham, the groups have said that they would not attend the event. They have also urged other to boycott the RSS Iftar party.
RSS body Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM) is organising the Iftar party, and around 200 eminent Muslim citizens have been invited to attend the grand feast.
According to MRM national convenor Virag Pachpore, the grand Iftar party is being organised by the right-wing organisation as an attempt to quash misconceptions about the RSS among minorities.
