Mumbai: Reports are coming in that while the Prime Minster Manmohan Singh had solemnly assured a visiting Muslim delegation that the bureaucratic move to pass a legislation de-recognizing of all Awkaf unless they are registered with the authorities will not be placed in Parliament, Congress had taken advantage of a thin attendance on Friday, (when all Muslim members of Parliament absent themselves for their compulsory Friday prayers) and reportedly rushed such a bill through Lok Sabha, directly countermanding Prime Ministerís assurance to Muslims.
The reports are sketchy, but a full day session of Muslim Majlis e Mushawarat was highly agitated trying to figure out how to react to this most dangerous act by Congress that would virtually amount to confiscating entire Muslim Awkaf all over the country.
It will also probably affect the case of the title of Babri Masjid as Awkaf property in the ongoing court cases. If the report is true, Congress hand will again be revealed in intervening in Babri Masjid court cases, through legislative route and presenting Muslims with a fait accompli.
Congress move is fraught with serious consequences for the nation as it is highly improbable that Muslim voters will ever stomach this scale of Congress perfidy.
There is a danger that an all India level reaction may ensue.
Government should move promptly to put the full matter in public domain, so that the peace and law and order situation in the land does not come under serious jeopardy.
The longer term consequences for Congress and its stake in Muslim votes in assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh and other states, is now an open question, if Congress double-dealing is confirmed.
The role of Salman Khurshid, the Union Minister for Awkaf, in such an underhand dealing with Awkaf is being reportedly openly questioned in Muslim circles.
It is supposedly an old Congress practice to try to capture Muslim vote bank, by putting the Muslim community under serious pressure, either through security mismanagement or threatening their livelihood, and at later stage to appear to relent and to side with the community in half measures in open bargain with Muslim leaders for their votes. This time-honored and trusted Congress trickery, may not deliver Muslim community this time around. The stakes are too high in both Babri Masjid and Awkaf, for Muslim community to trust Congress again. UP will be the real battle ground.
