British Muslims Deplore Court's AMU Judgement

Verdict denies Muslims to run and manage Aligarh Muslim University

London, 7 October, 2005: Council of Indian Muslims — UK (CIM) has expressed deep shock at Allahabad High Court’s decision abolishing the minority character of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU). Calling High Court’s decision as, “unwise and shocking” CIM’s chairman Munaf Zeena in a statement said, “The High Court has based its decision on the earlier judgement of the Supreme Court given in 1967 in which the apex court had refused to accept the historical fact that the AMU was established by Muslims. It had held that the AMU had come into being through an act of parliament. This is a common knowledge that this highly injudicious judgement was delivered to support Central Government’s highly partisan move denying Muslims of India the right to run and administer their institution. 

“Human history is full of examples where law was misinterpreted and misused to do injustice with communities and individuals and the abrogation of AMU’s minority character is no different from those pernicious judgements passed in the name of rule of law.” Zeena said.

“Once again injustice has been inflicted upon Indian Muslims by ignoring historical facts and by playing on words. At a time when India was well set on the road to progress and communal amity, this judgement has shaken the confidence of Indian Muslims and damaged the reputation of judges in Indian courts. We support the AMU community in their resolve to challenge in the Supreme Court and hope and pray that legal follies of the past will be rectified there.”

Zeena emphasised that “The learned judges must come out of their hangovers of India’s partition in 1947. They must not forget the fact that they are dealing with a generation of Indian Muslims who have as much right in India as any other community. By delivering such judgements they are not doing any service to anyone. The lack of confidence of minorities in the law courts is not good for the progress of any country let alone a country as diverse as India. Besides being unique in many other respects, AMU is also a unique in the sense that for no other institution in the world has a community given so much sacrifice as offered by the Indian Muslims for AMU and the community will not want to see its sacrifices wasted.”
