Text of the Resolutions
1. On Identification of Terrorism with Islam

The Markazi Majlis-e-Mushawarat,
noting with apprehension the exploitation of the 11September tragedy by anti-Islamic forces, operating freely and irresponsibly, to raise the level of distrust, suspicion and hatred against the Muslim community, in India and abroad, by indulging in anti-Islamic propaganda and by identifying international terrorism with Islam,
welcomes the statement by the prime minister that the global war against terrorism which India has joined, is not directed against Islam or the Muslim world or even the Afghan people, requests the Government of India to curb all demonisation of Muslims and vilification of Islam by such forces, through the mass media or by word of mouth, so that the social environment is not deliberately communalized to serve the political designs of the vested interests,
Also calls upon the US Administration and its allies not to target the long-suffering people of Afghanistan or take unilateral military action against the State of Afghanistan in its campaign against Osama bin Laden, without placing credible evidence to link the New York outrage with him or the Taliban regime or both.

2. On Restoration of Jamia Urdu
The Markazi Majlis-e-Mushawarat,
taking note of the crisis of survival in Jamia Urdu, the invaluable heritage of the Urdu-speaking community,
welcomes the formation of the Jamia Urdu Bazyabi Committee and extends its full moral support to its campaign to save the Jamia Urdu, to restore its genuine Rules and Regulations and to raise its academic credentials,
calls upon the Government of Uttar Pradesh to nullify the concocted Rules and Regulations under which the Jamia Urdu has been usurped by a small coterie of anti-social elements and appoint an eminent person with Urdu background and administrative experience as its Administrator pro tem to nurse it back to health.

hopes that the SIMI shall effectively defend itself before the Statutory Tribunal,
calls upon the Government to justify its action by placing the evidence against SIMI before the people and the political parties and establish the Statutory Tribunal without any delay,
requests the Government to eschew double standards and ban the Hindu militant organizations which are waging war against the secular state and actively working for the establishment of a Hindu State in India and their militant arms like the Bajrang Dal which are setting up private senas and distributing arms to terrorise the Muslims and other religious minorities.

4. On Lucknow Firing
The Markazi Majlis-e-Mushawarat,

instructs the Secretariat to make an on-the-spot inquiry and take suitable measures for relief and legal defence.

calls upon the Central Government to prohibit VHPs campaign of mobilization and, in particular, ban the projected assembly of thousands of Karsevaks in Ayodhya on 17 February, 2002, and to warn the VHP that any attempt to break through the security perimeter around the acquired area shall be resisted with all the force at its command,

7. On the Strategy for UP Assembly Election
The Markazi Majlis-e-Mushawarat,
reiterates its call to the three major secular parties in the state to reach electoral understanding so as to give a crushing defeat to the BJP in the coming UP elections,

noting that the UP Official Languages (Amendment) Act, 1989, upheld by the Allahabad H.C. on 8 July, 1996, is yet to be put into effect by the State Government,
considering that its non-implementation by the Executive is not only a defiance of the Legislature but also an affront to the Judiciary,
demands its full implementation forthwith in accordance with the Notification already issued under the Act.

11. On Saffronisation of Education
The Markazi Majlis-e-Mushawarat,
noting with satisfaction the success of the National Conference on Saffronisation of Education and its catalytic impact on building up nation-wide resistance to the secret agenda of the Sangh Parivar for the brain-washing of the school children,
