Maulana Mahmood Madani, the president of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, claimed that Islam is the oldest religion in India and the country belongs to him as much as Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat. The three-day plenary session of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind began on Friday in Delhi. Madani said he is against forced religious conversions and said freedom of religion is a fundamental right. The organisation passed several resolutions, including one on the alleged rise in the hate campaign and Islamophobia in the country. It alleged that though the government is aware of these developments, it prefers to adopt an ostrich-like approach.
