Kozhikode: Muslim League Sunday distanced itself from an article appeared in the ‘Chandrika’ newspaper on Sunday criticising Nair Service Society (NSS) and its general secretary G Sukumaran Nair.
An article appeared in the weekly column ‘Prathichaya’ in the newspaper came down heavily on the NSS and Sukumaran Nair for his ‘controversial’ stand on several issues in the state politics including the recent hullabaloo over inducting KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala into the cabinet.
Muslim League leader and Minister for Social Welfare and Panchayat, MK Muneer Sunday said that the article was not the view of the party. “The write-up criticising the NSS and Sukumaran Nair is unfortunate. The party will discuss it. Though we have differences with them on certain issues, NSS is an organisation that stands in front to guard communal harmony in the state,” said the minister.
“Though 'Chandrika' is Muslim League mouthpiece, the party does not get into its functioning,” Muneer said adding the party stand on the matter would be explained by KPA Majeed and E T Muhammad Basheer.
Meanwhile, NSS general secretary G Sukumaran Nair called the article ‘cultureless.’ “No pardon for those who insulted Nair community. Who did it and their motives behind it are very clear,” Nair said adding the NSS does not need anybody’s help in the State.
