RSS to Hoist National Flag at 1500 Madrassas


Panchkula: On 67th Republic Day, the Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM), an affiliate of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), is set to organise flag hoisting ceremonies at around 1,500 madarsas across the country.

According to The Indian Express, senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar will hoist the Tricolour at a madrasa in Rai Purani, near Panchkula in Haryana.

“Our programme is to hoist the Tricolour and recite patriotic songs at all madrasas as is done at other educational institutions,” said Kumar.

He added that the MRM has urged its workers across the country to organise such functions. Not just this, the MRM will also organise an “Insaniyat Jagao” programme at several Muslim localities between February 18-25.

“The flag hoisting will be followed by the Insaniyat Jagao (awaken humanity) programme at nearly 1200 places. During that we will recite Ayat-e-Karima (verses of the Holy Quran) for peace, harmony and development, and for elimination of terrorism from the country and good relationship with neighbouring countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh,” the daily quoted Gireesh Juyal, the national convenor of the MRM and a former RSS pracharak, as saying.
