He warned that if the opposition does not get its act together then they would have no one to blame but their avarice.

The Maulana said continuous bickering within the Samajwadi Party was causing grave damage to its future prospects.

Stressing that strength of India lay in its pluralism , he alleged that the Narendra Modi led government was doing its best to undo the gains of centuries of syncretic traditions imbedded in the Indian civilization.

The Maulana said demonitisation was a severe blow to the common Indian as well as the business class.
