RSS had established Muslim National Forum during Atal Government
In fact, during the tenure of the former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, the BJP, perhaps for the first time, started thinking and implementing strategy at an institutional and comprehensive level to change the mindset of the country’s minority community, especially the Muslim community. By that time the Ramjanmabhoomi temple ie Ayodhya dispute was hanging and no one knew how it would be resolved as the Atal government, which rested on the crutch of support of several political parties, had put the issue on the backburner.
During the Atal government itself, it was also thought that efforts should be made on the RSS front to change the mindset of the Muslims towards the BJP family and it was during the Atal government’s time that the Sangh established the Muslim National Forum and its The command was handed over to one of his senior and experienced leader Indresh Kumar. Muslim Rashtriya Manch has established dialogues with the Muslim community as well as Christians by conducting thousands of programs across the country and has achieved significant success on many fronts.
