New Delhi: Mohammad Salim Engineer, Secretary General of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, has expressed strong displeasure over the visit of Egypt’s dictator-president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to the world’s large democratic country India and termed it as mockery of the democracy-loving people of the country.
Jamaat’s Secretary General said Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is guilty of occupying power after ousting a democratically elected government in an illegal and immoral way and brutally killing and arresting thousands of people. It is, therefore, extremely sad that the great democratic country India has invited an anti-democracy fascist dictator. This move of the government goes against the nature and feelings of the democracy-loving masses, and thus cannot be appreciated and accepted.
Dr. Salim Engineer expressed hope that the pro-democracy forces in the country would express their anguish over the visit of Egypt’s occupier and tyrant. They would send a message across that the citizens of India cannot welcome any anti-democracy dictator and they consider the decision of the government to invite such an unpleasant and unwanted ruler as an insult to the country, which should be avoided in order to keep from the blame of supporting a dictator of the world.
