Muslim Islamic NewsSign petition on AMU's Minority Character

The Milli Gazette Online

27 December 2005

The following petition on AMU's Minority Character to Dr Manmohan Singh, Indian Prime Minister has been created by Council of Indian Muslims (UK) and well wishers of AMU and written by M. Ghazali Khan ( Click here to sign this petition click here  

To: Dr Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India 
Dr Manmohan Singh 
Prime Minister of India 
Prime Minister’s House 
New Delhi 

Dear Mr Prime Minister, 

The judgement of the Divisional Bench of Allahabad High Court, invoking the absurd logic of the infamous Aziz Basha case and quashing the 1981 Act of the Parliament, will be seen around the world and will be noted in history as nothing but the perpetuation of the old practice of denial of justice to the Indian Muslims. 

Mr Prime Minister, we hardly need to remind you that the process of this injustice, done in three different phases, was started in 1951 barely four years after India became independent, when a secular liberal leader like Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru was at the helm of affairs of the country and an Education Minister happened to be an eminent Muslim personality like Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. When this injustice reached its climax in 1965 another Muslim, Professor Noorul Hasan was the Education Minister. Ironically again, Allahabad High Court’s decision has also come at a time when a Muslim happens to be the President of the largest democracy of the world. 

Mr Prime Minister, most shameful injustices in human history have been done in the name of justice and through courts. This attempted cultural and educational strangulation of Indian Muslims, initiated by the Parliament in 1951 and completed by the Supreme Court in 1968, by refusing to accept that the Aligarh Muslim University was established by the Muslims, is one of these historic travesties with justice. 

We accept that the 1981 Amendment Bill that partially restored the AMU’s Minority Character, was the result of our Government’s realisation of the need to redress the blatant denial of justice to Indian Muslims. 

However, Allahbad High Court’s Divisional Bench’s judgement has once again shaken the confidence of the Muslim community and the problem will remain there for as long as the Parliament does not pass a bill admitting that injustice was done with Muslim community. 

Therefore, we the undersigned, urge you to pass, “Rectification of Mistake & Recognition of Facts” Bill in the parliament and restore, fully, the Minority Character of AMU. 

Mr Prime Minister AMU is an important part of Muslim heritage in India and is seen as a symbol of the freedom given to its minorities. If the despotic Acts of the Parliament in 1951 and 1965 are not undone by passing a “Rectification of Bill” and Indian Muslims are not given their due share, this will have an impact on India’s attempt to become a member of the OIC.
