Muslim bodies meet to form a new front
|Aligarh: The Indian Muslim Political Conference (IMPC) recently organised a meeting of several Muslim political organisations here. The meeting was a part of an ongoing effort, and was accordingly held in keeping with the earlier decision taken at the Muslim Political Convention at Meerut on July 14 this year.
The press release issued by IMPC informed that deliberations were held for the formation of a Front of Muslim political organisations. The meeting decided to evolve a common minimum programme for the Front and an action plan for its implementation. It also discussed to formulate a code of conduct for the mutual cooperation among the constituents of the proposed Front, the press release added.
Expressing its grave concern on the genocide of Muslims in Gujarat, the meeting underlined the need to evolve a common consensus on strategy to arrest the nefarious designs of communal forces. "The Central government should not insist on holding assembly election in Gujarat till complete normalcy is restored and riot victims fully rehabilitated," said Mohd. Mansoor Ali Khan, a senior functionary of IMPC. The Central government has also been urged to allow Amnesty International to visit the riot-torn state.
According to the press release, a symbolic one-day dharna (sit-in) in front of Uttar Pradesh Assembly would be organised in order to impress upon the chief minister Mayawati to re-notify in Babri Masjid demolition case in the light of Supreme Court directives. The Election Commission would also be petitioned for de-reservation of reserved constituencies in which there is substantial Muslim population and delimitation of the constituencies so that geographically congruant areas were not splitted, the press release stated.
Besides IMPC, presidents and other top functionaries of Muslim organisations like All India Muslim Forum, Indian National League, Momin Conference, Muslim United Front Party, National Loktantrik Party and Milli Political Council, attended the meet.
