The meeting expressed its deep sympathy for the children who lost their live in the fire blaze in Tamil Nadu on 16 July, 2004 as well as for the victims of the floods raging in Bihar and Assam.

The meeting discussed organizational and financial affairs of the Mushawarat and adopted the following Resolutions on National and International situation.

The text of the Resolutions is given below:

I - On the Formation of the UPA Government

The MMA of the AIMMM welcomes the formation of the UPA Government under the leadership of Dr. Manmohan Singh and appreciates the manner in which his government has set upon the national task odesaffronizing the administration, enunciating secular policies and formulating corresponding programmes, demolishing the structures of discrimination and distrust constructed by the Vajpayee regime and regenerating our hopes for the future.

The MMA also places on record that after the change of government, the religious minorities feel liberated and enjoy easy access to the members of the government and to the leaders of the parties which enables them to place their grievances, aspirations and suggestions before them.

In this connection, the MMA expresses its appreciation of the initiative taken by Shri Arjun Singh, Minister of Human ResourcDevelopment in the field of detoxification of school textbooks and promotion of education of the minorities and the facilitation of their educational rights under Article 29 and 30 of the Constitution.

The MMA takes the opportunity to draw the attention of Shri Shivraj Patil, Minister of Home Affairs to the urgent need for the enactment of a comprehensive law on communal violence and to propose that a National Meeting be convened at the earliest to evolve a consensus on its scope and content.

The MMA also requests the Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment to initiate necessary Consultations for the formulation of an appropriate Scheme of Reservation for Religious Minorities in the fields of Public Employment, Higher Education and Legislatures in order not only to give them their due representation but a sense of participation in governance.

The MMA assures the Leader of the UPA and the Prime Minister of the fullest possible cooperation of the Muslim community in the larger task of national reconstruction and development.

II - On Reservation for Muslims in Higher Education and Public Employment

The MMA of the AIMMM welcomes the introduction of reservation in favour of the Muslim community of AP in the fields of higher education and public employment, which is fully in accordance with the letter and spirit of the Constitution and felicitates the Government of AP for taking a bold policy decision in accordance with its election manifesto and the recent Report of the National Commission on the Functioning of the Constitution.

The MMA notes that the socio-economic and educational survey of the Muslim community in AP has found that the status of the Muslim is almost on par with that of the SC’s and the ST’s and, therefore, requests the government of AP to raise the quantum of reservation to at least 9% considering that they constitute 9% of the population of the State.

The MMA also proposes that the candidates from the really backward families, who possess the minimum qualification, should receive preference for admission to the benefits of the reservation.

The MMA also decides to formulate a National Scheme of Reservation for submission to and consideration by the UPA Government so that all educationally and socially, and therefore, economically, backward social groups or sub-groups in the country benefit from a common and comprehensive policy of reservation based on their population and level of backwardness, determined on the basis of uniform parameters, and the benefits of reservation are targeted to the individuals who belong to the deprived sections of their groups.

III - On inquiry by the railways in the Godhra Tragedy

The MMA of the AIMMM welcomes the order by the Railway Minister Shri Laloo Prasad Yadav for a comprehensive departmental inquiry in the burning of one bogey of the Sabarmati Express on 27 February, 2002 which had been exploited by the chauvinist elements to terrorize and commit acts of genocide against the Muslims of Gujarat, with the collusion and connivance of the State administration and government.

The MMA takes note of the fact that many aspects of the tragedy still remain shrouded in mystery and need to be uncovered to identify the real culprits.

The MMA hopes that the inquiry shall be completed expeditiously so that once the truth is known, the Muslim community in Godhra, and all over Gujarat and all over the country, can feel relieved and absolved of the false accusation made against them.

The MMA takes the opportunity also to condemn the continuing terrorization of the Muslim youth in Gujarat and Maharashtra and their extra-judicial execution through false encounters and reiterates its democratic conviction that the State has no right to take life of a human without due process of law.

IV - On the Situation in Iraq

The MMA of the AIMMM rejects the so-called ‘hand over’ of power by the occupation regime to the interim government in Iraq as nothing more than a ploy to maintain the military, political and economic hold of the USA and its partners. This defeat the legitimate aspirations of the people of Iraq for independence, sovereignty and self-determination.

The MMA is of the view that all foreign forces must quit Iraq and political power must be exercised by a National Assembly elected directly by the Iraqi people, in an election conducted and supervised by the UN, before Iraq can be considered to be really free.

In the meantime, the MMA calls upon the interim government to review immediately all laws, regulations, agreements and appointments imposed on Iraq by the occupation regime and initiate steps to identify and prosecute all those responsible for violation of international and humanitarian laws during the occupation through collateral damage, repression of human rights and desecration of holy places.

The MMA reiterates its demand that the Government of India should not commit any military forces to the ‘unified command’ or to the interim government but extend humanitarian relief for the people of Iraq through the UN.

The MMA also takes this opportunity to call upon the Iraqi resistance to refrain for committing senseless acts of violence which bring bad name to Islam and which reduce the universal support which the cause of Iraq’s liberation enjoys among the people of the world.

V - On the ruling of the world court on the wall

The MMA of the AIMMM regards the recent Ruling of the International Court of Justice on the construction of the Wall in the occupied Palestinian territory as a historic victory for the people of Palestine and condemns the continued defiance by Israel of international law and of innumerable UN Resolutions, which blocks the path to negotiated settlement and prolongs its unlawful occupation of the Palestinian territory and persecution and agony of its people and keeps the cycle of violence and counter-violence in ceaseless motion.

The MMA calls upon the Non-aligned Movement and particularly the Government of India to assure that the UN Security Council takes note of the Ruling and ask Israel to demolish the Wall as well as withdraw its settlements in the Palestinian territory and vacate the occupied territory, leading to a formal international agreement on the establishment of the State of Palestine with its security, and that of Israel, guaranteed by the international community.
