What an anti-Islamic - militant Hindutva organization - RSS is doing in the R20 religious forum?

The Hindutva paramilitary organization Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has announced that it will play an active role in the international interfaith summit scheduled on 2 and 3 November 2022 in Bali, Indonesia. 

In a first-of-its-kind event, Indonesia, a Muslim-majority country, will host a global summit of religious leaders modelled on the Group of Twenty (G20) intergovernmental forum.

The RSS spokesperson claims that the summit is being held to work against “Islamic Religious Extremism.”

Muslim comparative theologians such as Dr. Ahmed Deedad, Dr. Zakir Naik, Dr. Shaykh Yasir Qadhi has dedicated their lives to educate the world that, there is no Islamic Extremism or Islamic Terrorism.

Islamic scholars, to name a few, Dr. Omar Sulaiman, Nouman Ali Khan, Yasmin Mogahed, are making tremendous efforts to counter the false narrative of Islamic Extremism or Islamic Terrorism.

On the other hand, Inter-governmental organization like The King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID) and Doha International Center for Interfaith Dialogue (DAICID) also working tirelessly to distance Islam from the word Terrorism, and develop communal harmony across the globe.

Similarly, organizations such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC) and the Council on Minority Rights in India (CMRI) working hard to create a positive image of Islam and Muslims and to counter the Islamophobia and false narratives of Hindutva.

Contrary to all above efforts to establish peace and harmony, Hindutva groups have invested billions of dollars, hired powerful lobbying firms, infiltrated almost all foreign governments and spreading Islamophobia.

Developed an armed machine to spread hatred and misinformation about Islam and Muslims. According to Dr. Haroon Kasim, founder and director of The Humanism Project (THP), Australia, “today the most of anti-Islamic content comes from India, directly from the Hindutva laboratories.”

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is the mother of all anti-Muslim Hindutva organizations, groups and individuals.

History is evident that, Hindutva ideology inspired terrorist like, Anders Breivik (Norway), Brenton Tarrant (New Zealand), Nathaniel Veltman (Canada) and many more. Every one of them hailed India's Hindutva movement in their manifesto.

It is shocking to the Muslim world, that a well-known anti-Muslim organization, the RSS which is involved in the assassination of Gandhi, and its subordinate organizations involved in killing of Christians and Muslims, was able to infiltrate the Nahdlatul Ulama, Indonesia!!

In the words of Dr. Shaik Ubaid “This is not only hypocritical but will be extremely dangerous for the Arab masses and 200 million Indian Muslims.”

To prevent this eventuality from coming to pass, we at The Alliance to Protect America from Infiltration by Religious Extremists (ASPAIRE) have appealed for an emergency summit, which is cosponsored CAPI, NAIMA and Justice for All (JFA). 

The aim is to have a unified religious position against the RSS. 

If we fail, not only Islam will be demonized as the only religion where extremism thrives, but violently Islamophobic Hindu organizations like the RSS will be allowed to pursue policies that controls Islam under the pretext of peace-loving movement.
