Indian Union Muslim League leader and State Minister P. K. Kunhalikutty on Sunday flayed a section of the society to flare up communal divide and hatred and by raking up the e-mail snooping of some people and Marad communal violence.

The moves by raking up e-mail snooping issue is aimed at the minority Muslims and the Marad issue on the Hindu community and would only lead to confusion and ideological confrontation among the peace loving society of the State, Mr. Kunhalikutty told reporters here.

The Industries Minister’s assertion comes a day after his party made similar resolution on the issue in Malappuram on Saturday.

“None of the leadership should ever strive to pretend to be messiah of the masses by dictating their vested agenda by raking up these issues, as their prime objective, arguably, is to vitiate communal harmony in the State,” he said without naming any persons who have come out their versions recently on the raging issues.

On the fresh public demand for re-instigation of the Marad communal orgy by the CBI, he said his party did not have any reservation on the issue.

Mr. Kunhalikutty was here to inaugurate the IUML office named after late party leader Panakkad Mohammed Shihab Thangal at nearby Badiadka.
