Muslim Islamic NewsMushawarat on national and international situation

Markazi Majlis-e-Amla (MMA), 8 April, 2006

Statement on national and international situation

The Markazi Majlis-e-Amla (MMA) of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) held a meeting on 8 April, 2006 in the Central Office, with the President Mr. Syed Shahabuddin in Chair.

Following a detailed discussion on important national and international developments since the meeting of the MMM on 11 February, 2006, the MMA adopted the following Statement:

On AMU Situation

The MMA expresses its dismay that neither the Government of India nor the Aligarh Muslim University have yet filed an appeal before the Supreme Court against the Judgements of the Allahabad High Court nor has the Government initiated the process of drafting amendments to the Constitution and the AMU Act, 1920, if the Supreme Court does not stay the operation of the Judgements in time for admission for the coming academic year.

The MMA calls upon the AMU and the Government of India to file its appeal and, inter alia, seek relief from the Supreme Court, pending which UPA should introduce draft Bills during the resumed Budget Session in view of the growing restiveness in the Muslim community.

On BJPís Reversion to Hindutva

The MMA has taken note of the full reversion of the BJP to the Hindutva mode and rejects its irremediable Anti-minorityism as anti-national, because it sees Ďminorityismí in any move to provide a modicum of equality and justice to the deprived and backward Muslim community.

On Advaniís Proposal for Out-of-Court Settlement

The MMA rejects Shri L.K. Advaniís ill-timed appeal to the Muslims for voluntary surrender of their rights over the Babari Masjid site and requests him and the rest of the RSS Parivar to reaffirm their faith in the Supremacy of the Law and commit themselves to accept the final judicial verdict on the question of title to the disputed site and cooperate in the implementation of the Supreme Courtís road map of October, 1994.

On Presentation of UPAís Stand on Demolition to the Liberhan Commission

The MMA supports the request of the Liberhan Commission and urges the UPA Government to place on record its stand on the demolition of the Babari Masjid in contradistinction to the stand of the NDA Government already recorded.

On Reservation for OBCís in Higher Education

The MMA welcomes the introduction of reservation for the OBCís in higher and professional education and considers that with universalization of school education time has come to consider universalization of reservation, both in public employment and higher education, in favour of the backward sections of all social groups in proportion to their population and level of backwardness, subject to decennial review which is bound to enlarge the General Pool. The MMA views Ďmerití in a far from perfect evaluation system as nothing more than a self-serving device of the vested interests.

Muslim Demonstration - A Sign of Political Awakening

The MMA considers the massive demonstration by the Muslim community all over the country against the Danish cartoons and USAís policy in the Muslim World as a sign of a new awakening and hopefully as the back drop for a nationwide movement for the political, economic and educational empowerment of the community within the democratic and constitutional framework. The MMA welcomes the active association of the Left parties and hopes that they shall give high priority to Muslim aspirations for equality and justice and take suitable initiatives in this regard as well as support Muslim initiatives.

Under-representation of Weaker Sections in Higher Judiciary

The MMA has taken serious note of the sad fact that the higher judiciary continue to be a preserve of the high castes who constitute 15% of the population at the cost of 85% of the people and that all political and moral exhortations by successive PMís have failed to open the doors for the OBCís, the SCís, the STís and the Muslims. The MMA regrets that their share even in current appointments continues to be very low and feels that the present system of selection perpetuates group interests and family connections. The MMA is convinced that the credibility of the Judiciary which has been falling shall rise if the High Courtís and the Supreme Court reflect social demography and if an All India Judicial Service is constituted as the basic feeder for the higher judiciary.

The MMA demands the publication of a White Paper giving the community/caste affiliation of the Supreme Court and High Court Judges in July, 2004 and appointed since then.

International Developments - Palestine, Iraq and Iran

The MMA welcomes the formation of the Hamas Government in Palestine and hopes that with elections behind them, Palestine and Israel shall initiate serious negotiations under UN auspices for the final settlement of the problem.

The MMA expresses its dismay over the continued stalemate on the formation of a new Government in Iraq and considers that the delay has aggravated sectarian violence as well as insurgency and provided an excuse to the occupation powers to prolong their stay.

The MMA hopes that the Iran issue shall be resolved through diplomatic means by the IAEA affirming Iranís sovereign right to enrich uranium, with Iran voluntarily limiting it to the level required for power generation. The MMA cautions the USA, UK and Israel against any pre-emptive or unilateral steps to destroy Iranís nuclear capacity.
