|Imams Council criticises NSS chief
Milli Gazette Online
Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala Imams Council has taken exception to the Nair Service Society general secretary P.K. Narayana Panicker's reported statement which created the impression that the minorities owed their existence to the charity of others. The state chairman of the organisation, Muvattupuzha K.P. Ashraf Moulavi on March 8 said in a statement that it showed his lack of awareness of history. Mr. Panicker's bid to make the minorities turn back from the path of agitation was not going to work. He asked the NSS leader whether he was prepared for an open debate on the role played by Islam in emancipating the Indian society from the Aryans who had divided the country, denied human rights and created anarchy. Islam has dedicated itself for such a struggle for four-and-a-half decades. Moulavi said that Nairs had enjoyed the benefit of reservation even before the birth of united Kerala. They misused the upper hand they had in administration and bureaucracy.
The forward sections' bid to block the empowerment of the backward is part of history.
