COMMUNITY NEWS: 16-31 July 2001

Ali Sena demonstrating for justice to Babri.

Muzaffarnagar: The Muazzin of the Jama Masjid of the city was injured as two bomb blasts ripped across the mosque in Kotwali Police circle here on 21 June.
A Hindu fundamentalist group called Hindu Karantikari Dharam Raksha Sena has owned responsibility for the blasts since pamphlets listing the five-point charter of demands of the organization were found littered all around the mosque after the blast.
As per the news Moazzin of the mosque Abdul Karim was cleaning the mosque when two blasts occurred at 4 am in the morning. Though not much harm was done to the mosque but Abdul Karim sustained several injuries. As the news spread in the city in the morning, infuriated Muslim youths assembled in front of the mosque shouting slogans against the authorities and the culprits. It is said that the police was also startled by this unusual incident in the city. A big tragedy was averted by senior Muslim leaders of the city who sent the infuriated Muslim youths to their houses who were enraged over this extreme step of Hindu fundamentalists. Police has failed to nab the culprits so far.

Calcutta: The small mosque at Dhobitala in Tangra on the eastern fringes of the metropolitan is packed every Friday afternoon. Not just for the Friday prayers but also what follows soon after.
Saffron and white robed monks move into the premises soon after the prayers are over and start their work as they have been doing for the last eight years ever since the December 1992 riots following the demolition of Babri Masjid.
The monks and disciples of Yogadaya Satsnaga Society of India have been running a medical camp for the 12000 odd residents of the area, curing skin and stomach diseases and tuberculosis.
Dhobiatala, with a predominantly Muslim populace, was perhaps worst affected by the 1992 riots. Many houses in the slum had been burnt down and the people had lost their homes. The head of our Math at Dakshineshwar, Swami Sudhanandji decided to rebuild the houses and provide succor to the people there, says Rajendra Thakur, a disciple of the order says. The society's project at Dhobiatala was inaugurated by Mother Teresa in end-December that year.
Since the mosque with a small school adjoining it, was the only place found large enough to hold a medical camp, the mosque authorities were approached and they readily agreed to give out the space.

Allahabad: Muslim organizations and other sections of the society have objected to a judgment delivered by the Allahabad High Court justifying the live-in arrangement between a man and woman without marriage. Ulama have termed the judgement as un-Islamic whereas others have called it westernized approach.
The court had recently justified the live in arrangement between a man and woman saying that this arrangement is legal though it may not be acceptable in the society. Mufti Owais Akram said that the verdict is totally un-Islamic and added that Islam does not any allow live-in relationship between a man and woman without nikah. He also said that it is totally unlawful in Islam. Mufti Waseem Ahmad said that it is totally illogical to believe that a man and woman will refrain from making contacts while living together.
Pradeep Kumar Jain said that the decision will introduce western culture in the country and added that it may cause the disintegration of the society in the country. He said that marriage is the only way of survival of the Indian society.

New Delhi: United Communist Party of India has moved the Delhi High Court against the government's decision to hand over the maintenance of Taj Mahal to a private party.
In a public interest litigation, UCPI has stated that private agencies would exploit the monuments more for commercial purposes rather than maintaining them as per rules and guidance.
A division bench comprising Mukul Mudgal and SK Kaul heard brief argument on the matter before stating that the matter would be placed before a regular bench shortly for further hearing. The court also directed the UCPI counsel to file a supportive affidavit to help establish the locus standi of UCPI in challenging the government's decision.
The petition which names the Union Ministry of Culture and Archeological Survey of India as respondents, states that the daily income from Taj Mahal was not less than Rs 4 million, while expenditure on its maintenance is only about Rs 50000 a day. The petition further stated that the government is considering to sign a similar agreement for the maintenance of Red Fort as well.
The government had recently signed an MoU with a private company. According to the MoU, apart from maintaining the structure, the private company would also improve the ambiance. The first phase of the project is to be completed within 15 months.

Kanpur: Mirza Tanners Ltd. is India's foremost shoe manufacturer. The integrated shoe manufacturing unit makes over 3 million pairs of men's leather shoes annually. This is possible with five state of the art plants spread across the country. It claims to have captured 15 percent of the leather footwear market in the country. Red Tape is considered synonymous with high fashion range of casual and semi formal shoes for men. Its other brands are Oaktrak, Alloys, Oakridge.
The designs of shoes are sketched in London, with a discerning eye on the fashion and trends. Last year company's turnover was Rs 16-18 crore. Now they have the ambition to cross the Rs 100 crore mark in next five years. Their stall in Pargati Maidan in New Delhi in recently held Shoe Fair was a mammoth success.
Irshad Mirza, the chairman of the company is also the chairman of the Council for the Leather Exports. He was the brain behind organizing the shoe fair this year. He is also the chairman of the state Minority Commission, UP.

New Delhi: The BJP will not make the Ayodhya temple a poll plank during the forthcoming assembly election in Uttar Pradesh, party national secretary Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi announced here recently.
Talking to the media persons after the conclusion of a two-day national executive meeting of the minority morcha of the party, Naqwi said: Ayodhya will not be an issue in assembly polls in UP and other states.
When asked about home minister LK Advani's assertion before the Liberhan Commission that he was proud of his association with the Ramjanambhoomi movement Naqvi dismissed it as Advani's personal view.
The executive adopted a resolution strongly condemning disturbances created by some 'fundamentalist' Muslims over Gadar. The resolution appealed to the Muslim community not to become puppets in the hands of anti-national elements. The morcha expressed its surprise over the fact that no Muslim leader had so far condemned this act.
BJP minority morcha is propped up by the fundamentalist party every time when the elections approach. This time too, the party whose fortunes seem to be plummeting like never before is trying to cash in on disgruntled Muslim votes who do not want to go along with any so-called secular parties including the Congress, SP and BSP. The party finds people in Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and several others of his inkling to play in its hands.

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Mr. Rajnath Singh has announced plans to take legislative measures to improve the service conditions of teachers and other employees working in Urdu, Arabic and Persian madrasas.
Talking to newspersons the chief minister said the Government would soon come up with the U.P. Urdu Persian Madrasa Education Act to frame service rules for the teachers and other employees of these institutions and also to improve the working conditions and administrations of these schools. A Madrasa Education Board will also be set up for this purpose for which he announced a grant of Rs. one crore. As the State Legislature would take time to be summoned, an ordinance would be promulgated by the Governor to translate these decisions into an Act, Mr. Singh said.
Over the demands of the teachers and employees present at the panchayat, the Chief Minister said that benefits such as medical and earned leave, and maternity leave in case of female workers and reimbursement would also be taken care of in the Act.
An 11-member committee would also be constituted to review and examine the problems and difficulties of these schools and give its recommendations within two months to improve their lot. The committee would also recommend measures to improve the status and standard of Urdu and Persian languages. A special fund would also be created for this purpose.
A full-time registrar will also be appointed in the Board to conduct the examinations in time.
He also announced the creation of a special fund to honour and institute awards to Arabic intellectuals.
All these steps, however, appear to be pre-election trappings because the Chief Minister had also held similar meetings with teachers of other categories of schools such as Sanskrit Pathshalas and government-aided schools to assure them of many facilities.

Ranchi: Marandi government is ignoring 33.per cent Muslims of the state. Under the pressure of RSS, the government seems to be bent upon demolishing all Muslim institutions. The 3-member delegation of Indian Union Muslim League told Shahi Imam Syed Ahmad Bukhari.
The delegates appealed the Imam to visit the state and tell the Muslims to be united. The Imam promised to visit the state in October. Muslims of the state, forming 33% of its population, have been completely ignored in the bills passed by the state government, the delegates told the Imam. The Marandi government has announced Rs. 10 crore only for Madrasa Board, Hajj programmes, Waqf Board and Urdu Academy, which shows government’s step-motherly treatment towards Muslims.
After 53 years of India’s freedom, Muslims have got only unemployment, illiteracy and humiliation, the Imam said. Often they have been accused of being ISI agents and Bangladeshis, he added. And this is all because we trusted others. He said that the sacrifices of our ancestors have been forgotten.

Muradabad: Mischief-mongers tried to disturb the communal harmony of Muradabad, but the alertness of police saved the situation. According to a report, a Tablighi Jama’at had come in Angurwali Masjid in Katghar police circle. Late night, after Isha, (night prayer) two maulanas forgot the way to the mosque. In a Hindu-muslim mingled area, they asked Ramesh, a panwala, the way to the mosque. It’s said that two youths were standing there in a state of intoxication. When the maulanas entered the street told by Ramesh, the two drunkards beat them black and blue. When the news spread, the Muslims of the near by mohalla gathered there. Seeing the crowd of Muslims, non-muslims too reached the spot and the situation became tense. When the news of the incident spread S.P. Naunit Rana reached there along with force. He dispersed the crowd by force, before people of both sides could get excited. The news spread like jungle fire.
Till late at night the police could not detect the drunkards. Had the police not reached there, the harmonious atmosphere of the town might have been at stake. In the meantime a few members of the Babri Masjid Action Committee and National Loktantrik leaders reached there. The police have been on guard, but there has been no arrest so far.
