MBMC slams Jamat-e-Islami, appeals Muslims to support Congress
Tuesday March 4, 2014 5:45 PM, News Network

A Muslim NGO which comprises of Muslim intellectuals and thinkers Monday condemned the appeal of Jamat-e-Islami Hind to oppose the Congress and warned it against using Muslims for its political bargaining.

The NGO also appealed to Muslims not to fall on the advices or appeals of Jamat-e-Islami Hind but go by the intellectuals of the Muslims society.

"There is no doubt that the Congress has failed to realize our aspirations and did not do much for the Muslims despite continuous support but at the same time, it is also a fact that whatever developmental work for the Muslims has been done was undertaken by the Congress", said President of Millat Bedari Muhim Committee (MBMC) and former President of AMU Teacher's Association (AMUTA) Prof. Razaullah Khan.

He was chairing an analysis meeting held by the MBMC in Aligarh to take stock of the 15-point demand charter released by the Jamat-e-Islami Hind.

He pointed out that the Muslims have also supported some other political parties like Samajwadi Party but they have not only ditched them but also rubbed salt on their wounds at the time of Muzaffarnagar riots and did not took any developmental or welfare work.

Prof. Khan said that forthcoming Lok-Sabha elections are very important as the communal forces are using every channel to seize power in the country.

"In this scenario, opposing Congress is not in the larger interest of the Muslims", he said.

Secretary General Jasim Mohammad said that today the Jamat-e-Islami Hind has raised voice on the Ranganath Mishra Commission Report. Why it kept silence earlier and raising the issue now?

He said that in every state there are regional parties and if these regional parties win the result will be a hung parliament.

He said though Congress has failed on expectations but there is no doubt that the core ideology of Congress is secularism.

He said that organizations like Jamat-e-Islami Hind are not true well wisher of Muslims but are contractors for Muslim votes, and the appeal to boycott Congress is nothing but a political conspiracy to benefit BJP.

Jasim Mohammad said that though it is very easy to blame the Congress but we should not forget that it was Mulayam Singh Yadav who had entertained Kalyan Singh.

He said that the demand of political maturity is to support Congress and rejected the appeal of Jamat-e-Islam Hind.

Principal AMU Polytechnic Prof. Syed Iqbal Ali said that the Jamat-e-Islami Hind never took up socio-economic developments of Muslims, and has always raised emotional issues.
"Now it has issued 15-point charter for politically bargaining", he said.

Former Chairman Dept of History, AMU Prof. Shahabuddin Iraqi said, "The present political scenario is very complicated and Muslims have two ways before them. Either they have to take up positive political decisions in the changed globalised situation or go by the organizations like Jamat-e-Islami Hind which have no ground presence."

Sr. Scientist & AMU Court Member Prof. Humayun Murad said that the Muslims are standing on a cross-road and the 2014 elections will not only decide the future of Indian democracy but also of Muslims.

He said that this is not the time to make complaints but to strengthen secular polity which is possible only by supporting the Congress.

N. Jamal Ansari Vice-President of FMSA said that Narendra Modi frequently cite Gujarat model and says that he will use it at the national level.

"Gujarat model has two faces. We have seen one in the shape of Gujarat genocide (2002) and the other is Modi's support to corporate houses which has increased gulf between rich and poor. We cannot accept both", he said.
