Jamiat Ulama Hind President Maulana Arshad Madni on Saturday said that India would survive as long as it remained a secular country.
Even though secularists are active in the country, funadamentalists are also thriving in every way, Madni told reporters here.
In reply to a question over the arrest of Pragya Singh Thakur in the September 29 Malegaon blasts case, he said the Jamiat had been stating right from the beginning that such people were involved in making bombs and engineering blasts.
The maulana said that at a time when investigations were being carried out in the Malegaon blasts, the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack took place and Muslims once again became the centre of attention.
Madni said the Jamiat was opposed to the BJP as it wanted to convert India into a Hindu state.
The maulana said that the BJP would never succeed in the attempt as there were a large number of minorities in the country.
