Maharashtra AUDF all set to put candidate in Mumbai North-Central

Mumbai: Uttar Pradesh (UP) Ulama Council has decided to contest the upcoming Maharashtra Assembly election expected in October this year.


“We have decided to field our candidates at all the 288 assembly constituencies polls for which are expected in October”, Maulana AAmir Madani, president of the council said while introducing the UP replica in Maharashtra as Maharashtra Ulama Council. AAmir Madni was speaking at Marathi Patrakar Sangh in Mumbai yesterday.


Aamir Madani had floated the Ulama Council in Uttar Pradesh (UP) after the encounter of the Azamgarh youths allegedly involved in New Delhi and other blasts. The Council came into the limelight when it brought a train full of protestors from Azamgarh to New Delhi to press for a fair probe into the Batla House encounter. The Council later fought the parliamentary elections on the same agenda. Though it had fielded its candidates on seven parliamentary constituencies in Uttar Pradesh (UP), none of them could win the election. Post LS elections, analysts blamed the UP Ulama Council of helping the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in the elections. However council leaders brushed these allegations aside saying, it is not their job to defeat the communal forces.


Stating that the community is undergoing a trauma and no political party can escape from the responsibility of this dire condition he said, “We don’t trust any political parties anymore.”


Observing that earlier the communal riots were used to traumatize the community and now it is the terrorism which is used as a tool to spoil the careers of Muslim youths, he said, “The exploitation of the community should end here and the innocent Muslim youths who were detained for Malegaon blast should be released immediately.”


Recalling the alleged misuse of the Wakf Properties he said, “It is time for the government to hand over Ismail Yousuf College, Hajj House and other Wakf properties to Muslims.”


The Maharashtra Ulama Cnucil, Aamir Madani said, would raise the local issues and if needed would resort to mass movement on the street.


Maharashtra United Democratic Front, a local replica of Assam United Democratic Front (AUDF) has already decided to contest the Maharashtra Assembly elections.
