Ullal: “The BJP government at the centre has surrendered to the ideology of the RSS. The BJP government is looking at us as its enemy,” PFI National General Secretary Anees Ahmed has said. He was addressing a huge public gathering at the Ullala’s Ombathukere organised by Popular Front of India to mark PFI Day and Unity March.

He said PFI is not a small child and doesn’t need any lessons from RSS. Anees said, “Sometimes leaders who say they are secular also make unnecessary comments.”

A large number of Hindus in India are opposed to RSS ideologies, he said.

He said the PFI is proud of its nation. “One must understand who the real traitors are before declaring anyone anti-national.

“Amit Shah's relationship with Modi is not in good terms. They are not eligible to give people their legal rights. Their aim is to create disturbance within societies. The PFI would never bow to their ideologies,” Anees hit out at BJP.

Speaking on the occasion, Shafi Bellary, said the PFI Day was a day of exploited communities. 

He said, “The country is under the dictatorship of Hindutva and fascism.  

Out of fear, the fascist forces did not allow PFI Day to be held in Jamakhandi, he said.

SDPI State Committee member Ananda Mittabile spoke. PFI District President Ijaz Ahmed greeted and addressed the gathering.

The Unity March was held in the afternoon. PFI President Yasir Hassan presided over the event. Shafi Ballare, Ayyub, Majeed Tumbe, Akram Hassan were the chief guests.

The Unity March rally was held from Abbakka Circle. Safwan was in charge of command. PFI activists attended the Unity March event. Police force was present everywhere.
