Bhopal: Popular Front of India will launch a two months long “National Campaign for Muslim Reservation” during February and March 2010. 


The nation-wide campaign will start with a grand public meeting at Pune in Maharashtra on January 31. A Parliament  march will be held at New Delhi to mark the conclusion of the campaign. A series of public awareness programs including pamphlets, posters, exhibitions, street meetings, vehicle caravans, rallies, seminars and cultural shows will be held in various states as part of the campaign. 


According to a Press release issued by K. M. Shareef, General Secretary PFI, the decision to focus on the demand for Muslim Reservation was taken in the National Executive Council meeting of Popular Front held for two days at Calicut. The meeting demanded that immediate steps from the central and state governments for providing reservation to all Muslims in education and government employment in the light of the recommendations contained in the Justice Ranganath Mishra Commission Report. This report was tabled in the Parliament without the accompanying action taken statement. 


The council called upon all minority and backward class organizations to work united  for the  implementation of the Mishra commission recommendations.  The reservation to minorities has to be provided without effecting existing reservation quotas enjoyed by tribals, dalits and other backward communities.     


Popular Front warned against any attempts by communal, upper caste and vested interest outfits to divide the deprived sections and requested them not to be carried away by such attempts based on false propaganda. 


The meeting observed that the functioning of the recently constituted National Investigation Agency, (NIA), is against the spirit of federalism which guarantees the autonomy and independence of administrative and police machinery of each state. Popular Front of India had earlier demanded the withdrawal of the amendments to the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and opposed the move to constitute NIA over and above the existing agencies when the proposal came from the central government. 


The amendments reinstated many provisions of the repealed black laws TADA and POTA. The meeting recalled that even the left parties including CPI (M) have not objected to NIA when it came for approval before the Parliament, the release pointed out.


The meeting also blamed the governments at the Centre and states for exorbitant price hike of essential commodities and demanded strengthening public distribution system for all ration card holders and free distribution of essential food grains to those who are below poverty line, the release said.


Chairman E. M. Abdul Rahiman presided over the meeting.  General Secretary K.M. Shareef presented the report of activities. A. Saeed, O. M. A. Salam, Dr. Mehboob Shareef Awad, Adv. K. P. Muhammad Shareef, Prof. P. Koya, Sheik Muhammed Dahlan Baqavi, Moulana Usman Beg Rashadi, M. Muhammed Ismail and presidents and general secretaries of different states attended the meeting.
