More than forty Hindu outfit groups from all over the country have come together to form a new movement called ‘India Against Islamic States’ in Coimbatore.
A website was also launched in the name of the movement by Ramesh Shinde, National spokesperson of ‘Hindu Janajagruti Samiti’ on Monday.
In a media statement, Pramod Muthalik, founder president of the Sri Ram Sena said that the movement is for spreading awareness about terrorism and said that it is not against Muslims but against terrorist organizations. He also asked Muslims to join this movement and said that many Muslims have been ‘brainwashed’ to join IS and victimised later. He stated that many Indian youth who joined the IS have asked the Indian Government’s help to return.
Arjun Samapth, President of the Hindu Makkal Katchi told The New Indian Express, “Usage of flags of IS and banners supporting them are widely seen in Jammu and Kashmir and other parts of the nation. This movement will support the law-implementing agencies to nab such persons.”
