Mushawarat welcomes U.P. election results

New Delhi, 7 March 2012: The All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat (AIMMM), the umbrella body of Indian Muslim organisations, held a meeting here to consider the election results in five states, especially Uttar Pradesh. The meeting was attended by AIMMM President Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan, former President Janab Syed Shahabuddin, Vice President Janab Muhammad Jaafar, General Secretary Janab Ejaz Ahmad Alam, Janab Mujtaba Farooq and Janab Akhtar Husain Akhtar.

Dr. Khan said after the meeting that the AIMMM is satisfied with the results in Uttar Pradesh and congratulates the mature U.P. voters for puncturing the BJP balloon even in Ayodhya and thereby demonstrating that the voters reject communal and divisive politics.

Dr. Khan said that the U.P. results have yet again demonstrated the central position of Muslim voters in the state and that no government may be formed by ignoring them. The results, he said, are also a lesson for the Congress that mere lip service and meaningless gestures will not win it votes. It is time political parties stopped taking Muslims for granted. Dr. Khan hoped that the UPA will learn its lessons and make good its promises to Muslims and other minority and backward communities so that these results are not repeated in 2014.
