Talking Points:
VHP has been named religious militant organization by the CIA:
Times of India
RSS has been named as complicit in multiple human rights violations in India.
“The Hindu organizations most responsible for violence against Christians are the VHP, the Bajrang Dal, and the RSS.” per the the Human Rights Watch Report.
“The CIA’s Factbook mentions RSS leaders as individuals who initiate and encourage human-rights violations.” atimes.com
“In July, even after Prime Minister Narendra Modi finally condemned such violence, an affiliate organization of the BJP, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), announced plans to recruit 5,000 “religious soldiers” to “control cow smuggling and love jihad.” So-called love jihad, according to Hindu groups, is a conspiracy among Muslim men to marry Hindu women and convert them to Islam.” Human Rights Watch.
Tulsi Gabbard: Congresswoman from Hawaii, the only Hindu member of the US Congress withdrew her participation saying “it became apparent that the event was going to be a partisan political event”. Vote Tulsi
Ram Villivalam, Democratic Nominee for State Senator in IL has also withdrawn his attendance at the conference. He stated “I do not support any group and/or an event arranged or led by organizations that intimidate minorities, incite discrimination and violence, commit acts of terror based on race or ethnic background, promote hate speech, and/or believe in faith based nationalism.” Ram for Senate

First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah

The inclusion of poor in our festivity must be done without which we cannot complete our service to Allah SWT. How many societies the poor is left out of the pie and the rich eats the entire pie. A few weeks ago, we celebrated Eid-ul Fitr. And on that Eid, we enjoy its virtues by giving the Zakaat-ul Fitr to the poor before we begin the Eid prayer. This Eid we have to complete its celebration by giving 1/3 of the meat to the poor and needy. As Allah SWT says: Then eat thereof and feed therewith the poor who have a very hard time. (22:28) EID MUBAARAK!
