Millat Bedari Committee supports Congress in Uttar Pradesh

Wednesday January 18, 2012 07:23:49 PM, IANS

Aligarh: A Muslim body has urged people to vote for the Congress in the Uttar Pradesh elections, saying the party was best suited to pursue secular ideology.

The Aligarh-based Millat Bedari Muhim Committee (MBMC) gave the call after analysing the political situation in Uttar Pradesh, which will elect a new assembly next month.

MBMC president and Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) professor Razaullah Khan pointed out that the Congress always supported secular ideals and its leader Rahul Gandhi had done "commendable work" in Uttar Pradesh.

MBMC secretary Jasim Mohammad hailed the Congress-led central government for appointing the Sachar Committee to unearth the real causes of backwardness of Muslims, India's largest religious minority.

Humayun Murad praised Congress-ruled states for maintaining peace. Syed Iqbal Ali, another professor, said that Congress should be supported so as to "defeat casteism, regionalism and communalism".

MBMC spokesperson Fatima Zehra said the group will take out "Karvan-e-Bedari" from Ghazipur to Ghaziabad Jan 28-Feb 29 to appeal to the people, in particular Muslims, to vote for the Congress.
