Former Vice President of India Hamid Ansari has once again started seeing intolerance in India. He once again sees the country's democracy in danger. In fact, on January 27, 2022, Hamid Ansari, while addressing the event of the Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC), has expressed concern over Hindu nationalism. The former Vice President said that an attempt is being made to divide the people into religious lines in the country and incite people of a particular religion. On the occasion of Republic Day (January 26), Ansari criticised the country's democracy, saying intolerance is on the rise in the country and it has now deviated from constitutional values.
Expressing concern over Hindu nationalism, Ansari said, "In recent years, we have experienced the emergence of trends and practices that raise a hue and cry about the well-established principle of civic nationalism and encourage a new and imaginary trend of cultural nationalism. They want to divide citizens on the basis of their religion, promotes intolerance, unrest and insecurity.'' At the same time, Ansari praised himself and said that during his tenure as vice-president, the country's parliamentary system and law were completely transparent. It is to be noted here that the 'Indian American Muslim Council' (IAMC) virtual event in which Hamid Ansari attended has already been accused of being associated with Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI.
It is worth mentioning that there is an uproar over the statement of Hamid Ansari. He has done things like this before. Hamid Ansari, who described Muslims as unsafe in India, had given an interview to Zee News in January 2021 last year. Hamid was here to promote the new book 'Bye Manny A Happy Act.' During that time, he had said that Muslims in India are feeling insecure. On the question of mob lynching, the former Vice President had stressed that lynching is indeed religiously motivated. He had tried his best to prove that ever since the Hindu nationalist BJP came to power, the lynching of the country's minorities has increased.
Not only this but Hamid Ansari has also been accused of endangering the lives of intelligence agency officials by exposing raw's setup in gulf countries when he was Iran's ambassador during 1990-92. Former RAW official NK Sood had written a letter to PM Modi in 2019, demanding an inquiry into the role of Hamid Ansari. Sood had also mentioned the kidnapping of Indian officer Sandeep Kapoor in 1991. Hamid Ansari was also accused of negligence in the case. At the same time, in 2019, NK Sood had also said that a person named Ratan Sehgal was an associate of Hamid Ansari. Ratan was in ib during that time. It was Ratan Sehgal who trapped scientist Nambi Narayanan under the conspiracy and ruined his career. Sood had also revealed that Ratan Sehgal often used to scare him because of Hamid Ansari's special. Let us also tell here that the notorious mafia of Uttar Pradesh, Hamid Ansari, who has many cases like murder, loot, rioting, is the nephew of Hamid Ansari, but Hamid Ansari has never seen any threat to the country due to the misdeeds of Mukhtar./ newstracklive
