Muslim Islamic NewsRestoration of AMU's Minority Character 

Press Release by AMU Students Union

The Milli Gazette Online

Aligarh 28th Jan, 2006: The movement for restoration of minority character of AMU is gaining momentum day by day.In this connection an All India Seminar of Madaris-e-Islamia was oganised on the initiative of AMU Students' Union , which is very seriously spearheading the movement. This seminar was attended by the representatives of all markazi madarsas of India and of various Islamic school of thoughts on the topic "Minority Character of AMU and the educational future of the Indian Muslims."

Ulemas from all over India attended the seminar in huge gathering in Kennedy hall and expressed their concern over this burning issue.

Abdul Hafiz Gandhi,President, AMU Students' Union said after the seminar that all the ulemas promised the AMU community to support the struggle for the restoration of minority character of AMU. It is the rare example in the history of Muslim world that ulemas from different Islamic school of thoughts shared the dais and showed their solidarity for the cause. Mr. Gandhi added that constitutional amendment is the only solution to the problem.

This seminar was the need of the hour as the said movement cant gain momentum without the support and contribution of the ulemas and other Muslim organisations, said Mr. Farrukh Khan, Hony. Secretary AMU Students' Union. Mr. Khan further observed that we will take this fight to the streets involving the common Muslims and other secular minded people. History is the witness that without the support of millat any agitation can not be made successful.

While delivering the presidential address in the seminar Maulana Hayatullah, Nazim Madarasa Noorul Uloom, Bhahraich said that, 'Since the Aligarh Muslim university is considered to be the centre for Muslims of India and the AMU is also considered as the voice of Muslims of India ,we have to take this issue before millat'.

Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahali, Member All India Muslim Personal law Board observed that in his opinion the moment millat is involved, all so called secular political parties will make their concern towards the issue seriously. He assured the help of Muslim personal law board in this struggle.

Maulana Abdul Hameed Nomani spokesperson of Jamiat-ul-ulema Hind said that the whole Muslim community will be on roads, if the Bill to amend the constitution is not put before the parliament in the Budget session.

Maulana Mufti Rasheed of Darul-uloom Deoband assured the Alig biradari of full cooperation and support of his madarsa in the struggle to get the minority character. Maulana Rasheed promised that whenever AMU Students' Union will give the call to come on the roads, the Ulema without giving second thought will cooperate and lead the struggle. The seminar was attended by thousands of people. All appreciated the efforts of the students' union to in its fight to get back the minority character.

Maulana Shabuddin Rizwi, Barailly observed in the seminar that all the people following Barailly school of Islamic thought will join the movement and they had given the call of Barailly Bandh on 2nd February to put pressure on the government to bring constitutional amendment.
