Jamaat vs Congress

The article of Yoginder Sikand appeared in (The Milli Gazette, 16-31 January 2003) titled "Jamaat-e-Islami Hind: Signs of Change" is absolutely true in letter and spirit. Because every party, whether it is social, political or religious, change their policies while upholding its basic ideology. But Jamaat under the leadership of Dr Abdul Haq Ansari, has altered its ideology altogether.

In the last week of December 2003, Dr Ansari came to Calicut and attended a Meet the Press programme at Calicut Press Club. In this meet he made a wonderful appeal. He asked the media to drive home the message to safeguard secularism and democracy at any cost and said that nowadays secularism is facing threats by the actions of the rulers of the day.

By appealing to safeguard secularism and democracy, Dr Ansari was indirectly declaring that Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is a new party with a new ideology. As all we know the hitherto stand of the Jamaat was that secularism and democracy will in no way go along with Islam. His appeal will encourage Indian Muslims to parade behind the so-called secular parties without fearing the punishment in the life after death.

But by declaring a ‘Haraam’ to a ‘Halaal’, Dr Ansari should do one more thing. He has to apologise to all these Muslims, who had been kept away from the secular parties fearing that belief in secualrism and democracy is equal to worshipping ‘another God’ along with Allah. Let me express another doubt to Dr Ansari, if Jamaat is also for a secular democratic India then what for Jamaat functions along with Indian National Congress?
