Faizabad, Jul 19 (UNI) Agreeing with the Samajwadi Party (SP) decision to back the Nuclear deal, the Ulemas of Ayodhya and Faizabad today said the deal was also important for the realisation of former President Dr A P J Abdul Kalam's Vision 2020.

''The Nuke deal would help in building a strong India by 2020,'' a spokesperson at a Muslim community's conference said here.

''India was facing lesser threat from the US than the communalist and casteist forces,'' the Ulemas observed.

The anti-national forces have posed a danger to the democracy and secularism in the country, they claimed.

The clerics also passed a resolution and termed the Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh 'anti-Muslim' for not alloting money to the Madarsas.

Earlier, the Ulemas of Deoband and other institutes had also called the Nuclear deal ''favourable'' in interests of the country.
