By on August 29, 2013

 A group of Muslim leaders joined the recently launched Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday to show Muslim support for the party.

Kejriwal said both CKejriwalongress and BJP have used Muslims and Hindus respectively as vote banks. Alumni of Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia Islamia Univevarsity are expected to join the party. Alumni  Irfanullah Khan, Zakir Nagar and social activist Firoz Bakht Ahmed are expected to join AAP in a day or two.

“A major reason for joining AAP is that while Congress and the BJP are playing Hindu and Muslim card, Kejriwal is playing the ‘India’ card,” said Firoz Bakht Ahmed, a teacher and heritage activist.  Syed Mohd Ismail said, “Both Congress and BJP are enemies of the community and AAP’s broom (election symbol) will clean this dirt.” Maqbool Ahmed alleged government officials in his state kept him in jail after implicating him in the murders of five persons. “I haven’t even killed a mosquito in my life and they say I killed five persons,” he said.
