Islamic organizations and Opposition parties in Kerala had criticized Achuthanandan on his comment.
Talking about the radical Islamic outfit Popular Front of India (PFI), Kerala CM said that PFI aims to convert Kerala into a Muslim majority state in the next 20 years.
"For achieving that goal, the outfit is pumping money to attract youth and give them weapons. They also try to convert youth from other communities and persuade them to marry Muslim girls," added Achuthanandan.
The Indian Union Muslim League on Monday, Jul 26 said that Achuthanandan's statement was "dangerous" and "insulting to the entire (Muslim) community."
On the other side, the alliance of Opposition parties UDF said, " Achuthanandan's comments were deplorable, dangerous."
"His comment was a part of his strategy to play the 'Hindu card' before civic and Assembly polls in the state," added UDF.
