The Rajiv Gandhi Basis scandal refuses to die down. Soon after owning slyly diverted funds from the Prime Minister’s National Reduction Fund (PMNRF) for the duration of its rule above India, the Congress allegedly did not hesitate from accepting huge sums of funds from the Chinese Communist Get together by using its different proxies, which involve corporations connected to the ‘United Front’. What has now emerged, nevertheless, is that the spiritual and ideological mentor of terrorists – Zakir Naik contributed to the Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Believe in, headed by the Gandhis, in 2011.
In accordance to Republic World, a transaction amongst Zakir Naik and Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Believe in (RGCT) has been unearthed. The transaction specifics of the account, which has been frozen now, displays a fund transfer allegedly amounting to Rs 50 lakhs, from Zakir Naik’s Islamic Research Foundation’s account to Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Rely on during the UPA regime in 2011. RGCT is a registered, not-for-gain organisation set up in 2002 headed by Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi, as for every its formal site. Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Have faith in has Congress President Sonia Gandhi as its chairperson and former Key Minister Manmohan Singh, P Chidambaram, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra as members.
Islamic preacher Zakir Naik has usually reportedly shared a bond with the Congress celebration, however, for the get together in electricity to acknowledge a whopping sum of 50 lakhs definitely defies all logic, but all over again, the Congress is known to be explicitly corrupt. The grand aged bash has traditionally in no way shied absent from indulging in functions which can be construed as corrupt, or even ‘illegal’. Community viewpoint be damned.
When Zakir Naik fled India in 2016 for Malaysia, exactly where he has uncovered short-term refuge, the Congress occasion, immediately after obtaining conducted an unexpected emergency assembly, determined to hand back again the dollars to the Islamist’s basis, which has been banned by the Modi government for a interval of 5 several years under the country’s anti-terror regulations.
Curiously, even as Malaysia, Canada, British isles and Bangladesh banned Zakir Naik and his sermons fairly early on, a Congress-led India gave finish flexibility to the rabid Wahhabist to spew venom on nationwide tv and indoctrinate scores of people. Though the controversial preacher has been designed to truly feel the warmth by the present dispensation, he had been identified as to handle IPS officers and discuss on “counterterrorism” at the National Law enforcement Academy in Hyderabad all through the UPA times. Congress chief Digvijay Singh had gone to the extent of contacting the Islamic supremacist a messenger of “peace and goodwill”, though sharing the dais with him.
The two even exchanged a hug with just about every other, displaying the Congress party’s liking for a man whose sermons pushed men and women into terrorism, and who himself desires of setting up a Sharia state in India. Singh also explained that Naik’s messages and sermons inspired peace, when also doing the job towards communalism, and thus his messages should reach every corner of the country. He also appealed to Naik to vacation throughout India and deliver his sermons, in purchase to bridge the variances among Hindus and Muslims.
Although answering a dilemma about returning to India if there is a adjust in the existing regime, the Islamist replied that the likelihood of returning are a lot far more with the Congress in electricity. He also stated in unambiguous words and phrases, “I would not like to occur back again if the BJP is in ability.” However he did not expressly praise the prior regime, he did say that Congress was the “lesser evil” which experienced a “soft approach” to Muslims. He appeared to have recommended that the earlier regime in India was far better.
The Rajiv Gandhi Basis has so much been funded by China, PMNRF, several PSUs, Mehul Choksi and the most recent entrant to the checklist staying Zakir Naik. Although the Congress claimed to have returned the income obtained from Naik’s IRF, it has been exposed as a person giving a prolonged rope to radical Islamists like him, all for the sake of a handful of lakh rupees.
