Muslim representation in the Police
Recently Mr. N. A. Ansari wrote a brief note on the representation of Muslim in Police force of various states .Either he should have included only Muslim Minority States or left out J&K to avoid distortion of the All India figure. Without J&K, the figure will be around 4%. The Milli Gazette should urge the Government that proportion of Muslims in Police force in any state should be in accordance with the proportion of its Muslim population and in all sensitive Police Stations, particularly those in Muslim majority areas should have 50% Muslim officers and men as the Late Siddharth Shankar Ray introduced in West Bengal when he was Chief Minister. With combined composite recruitment and composite posting in sensitive P. S’s communal violence will be easily controlable and perhaps come to an end.

Keep safe distance
Muslims should not look, even from a long distance, at non-Muslim ladies dancing during the nine nights of navratri in Gujarati speaking areas. Let us prevent quarrels and maintain peace.

White Paper — khaki menace against Muslims
Police killed four innocent Muslims in Bhajanpura when villagers were protesting peacefully against the closure of an old rural road. They killed innocent Muslims and brushed it under the carpet in the name of investigation. In the name of investigation PAC dumped  Muslims of Hashimpura in a truck and took them to Hindon river and killed 69 innocent persons. Many investigations submitted their reports but those reports were dumped. Ishrat Jehan, Qateel Siddiqui, Khwaja Yunus and thousands of such murddered youths  are now marhoom due to the police. Now 65-year-old Mukhti Begum was beaten up by J&K police on 6 Oct; she couldn’t bear the beatings and died. Across the country, Muslims are at the receiving end. That is why a "White Paper" has become essential to be published as you have planned.

Stupendous problems of Indian democracy and their solution
We are rightly proud of the fact that our country is not only the largest parliamentary democracy of the world but is one Asian country where democracy has very deep roots and is very strong. Indian democracy however, is facing most stupendous and gigantic problem of poverty as many of its people are extremely poor and millions are living below poverty line. This problem can to a large extent be solved if the following measures are undertaken by the government: 1. Government mobile vans containing essential commodities should go round cities, towns and villages of the country and commodities should be sold at cheaper rates. 2. The unemployed should be given an unemployment allowance of Rs. 5000 per month. 3. There should be free medical treatment of the poor. 4. Special arrangements should be made for the availability of pure drinking water. 5. Electricity rates or tariffs should be reduced. 6. Strong preventive measures should be taken against commercialization of education and educational institutions should be prevented from charging thousands of rupees as fees. 7. Two room houses with toilets should be constructed for the dwellers of jhuggis and jhonpri.

Alas Mr Salman Khurshid
I can offer the spiritual aspect of the problem of Mr. Salman Khushid Being a Muslim he annoyed Allah by saying that he can sacrifice his life to safeguard the honour and dignity of Nehru family .Being a Muslim he has sold his life to the hands of Allah in exchange of Heaven .If he says that he will sacrifice his life for the honour of Nehru family has committed a Shirk which is never forgive n by Allah .Allah can forgive his marriage with a Christian lady and giving his daughter to a non Muslim youth .. and all other sins including embezzlement of 7100000 Rupees The second great mistake he committed in understanding the difference between Congress party and Nehru family .Party is more important than Nehru Family .The party can sacrifice Nehru family to strengthen the party .But it cannot sacrifice the party to safeguard the dignity of the Nehru family .His loyalty to the Nehru family is not more important than his loyalty to the party .This misunderstanding made him daredevil and spoke like a Don . Any way he should understand That God is greater than Nehru Family .He should go to Hajj and his illegal wife should embrace Islam to Go to Mecca .There he should apologize Almighty Allah .He should return the money which he misused.

A voice of wisdom
As a benefit for all, a voice full of wisdom is heard from Haryana. According to an agency report datelined Chandigarh, 6th October, published in Ahmedbad’s Gujarati daily Gujarat Today on 7 October 2012, Kham Punchayat has announced that the age of marriage must be lowered to check the calamity of rape cases which have become daily. This suggestion supports the Islamic thought according to which mensus, not any arbitrarily imposed fixed age is proper for marriage. It can also eliminate the possibility of vindictive allegations of rape.

Kejriwal and  Anna Hazare
The handling of the present political situation in the country is a Himalayan task .But some one has to do this .Young and energetic man Mr. Arvind Kejriwal is dealing with full confidence and vigor ,The entire nation is supporting him .The political parties are opposing him as he has caught them red handed .His cause is sublime and powers of virtue will polarize and strengthen the party of Mr. Kejriwal .He need not get support of Anna Hazare .He is not well educated and intelligent man .He is not ready to confront the evil powers .Without sacrifice no one can become a celebrity. Let Mr Keriwal go ahead with his mission Slowly it will gain momentum .The message of Dasera is the same .

Pakistani Taliban
It is very unfortunate that some fanatical groups like Taliban are bringing ignominy to the beautiful religion of Islam by forcing girls from going to schools. Islam treats both men and women equally in many aspects including the pursuit of education. There is a saying of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that "seeking knowledge is obligatory for all Muslim men and women - (Ibn Maaja)". The prophet’s wife Hazrat Ayesha was an eminent scholar of her times. Malala Yousufzai who dared to stand up to the cruel diktat of the Taliban is a source of inspiration to scores of Muslim girls like us.

Defective public railway announcement system
At every railway junction arrival, and departure, of trains to announced through computerized announcement. Unfortunately this system is highly defective and needs improvement. In the first place the information given is vague, The usual announcement that train number so and so is arriving in a short while which actually means more than half an hour or so Secondly after the arrival of a particular train, its arrival is announced several times while no information is given about other trains. In purely Babushahi English which decidedly is incorrect English it is announced that train number so and so is standing on platform number so and so instead of stating that the train has arrived on platform so and so. At New Delhi Station the announcement about the trains which are running very late expresses khed or regret ‘but this is of no use for waiting passengers. At least compensation should be paid to the passengers who have to wait for hours for their trains.

Congress net to trap Muslim vote
Central government has announced special drive to recruit to increase the representation of minority in para military (1 October 12) In August news spread that central government had initiated an scheme to open bank branches in minority area. As M. P. election will be near government would circulate "paid news" that Muslims representation increased in para military and as election momentum would gain, congress would announce "Reservation for Muslim" as earlier congress manifesto had written and promised "reservation for Muslims".

Shaheed Qateel Siddiqui’s relative put a mirror before nation
Qateel Siddiqui was arrested by Maharashtra police from Darbhanga village Barh Samella on cooked charges of terrorism. He was kept in high security Pune’s yerawada jail where he was mysteriously killed. He was innocent until proven guilty and he was eliminated to hush up the cooked cases. That is why he was innocent and innocent killed in Shaheed. Qateel uncle Septuagenarian Md. Akhtar says "do we have to pay just for being Muslims? four youths from the village picked up by police Qateel had not past criminal record. The entire village is perturbed as many youth from here are studying or working out side. No body knows whose turn is next, because the police first arrest and then try to develop evidence by torturing innocent persons" Qateels mother asked a question from nation, judiciary "if he (Qateel) was really an anti national the police should give evidence. Had he been shot by the police in an encounter or after proving his guilt we would have accepted it but how could a person be murdered in the jail Borrack?" Shakeel Qateel Siddiqui’s relatives put a mirror before nation, the image would explain the true picture of democracy.

Ban communal organizations involved in terrorist activities
As a result of investigations of anti terrorists squads and other investigating agencies it has been proved that Hindu communal organizations namely Bajrang Dal, VHP, Sanatan Sansthan, Ram Sena and RSS were involved in highly deplorable terrorist actions at Ajmer, Malegaon, Nand and Mecca Masjid Hyderabad and highly explosive materials had been found both at the offices of these organisations and residences of activists of these organizations. Arrests of Col. Purohit and Sadhavi Pragya collaborates the existence of a conspiracy engineered by these organizations. Not only this, V. H. P. and bajrang Dal had also tried to convert Orissa into another Gujarat by killing Christians and damaging their churches while Shiv Sena has launched an intense hate campaign against north Indians in Mumbai. A prominent leaders of RSS has also been accused of participating in these activities by anti terrorist squad. AICC at its recent session severely condemned the involvement of these organizations in terrorist activities. The union govt. should immediately ban these organizations for their involvement in terrorist activities and this decidedly will be a fatal blow to terrorism.

What a coincidence - Aamir Khan not a terrorist
Samar Halarnkar’s article "Accepting Aamir" appeared on 27 September in H T. explained the ordeal of Md. Aamir in 14 yrs. and after that experienced. The article mentioned the book. "Framed, Damned Acquitted - Dossiers of a very special cell" but H. T. insensitiveness are deep rooted that H. T. published picture of Aamir taken by "The Hindu". Such big publishing house don’t have Md. Aamir photo whose ordeal is worst. What a coincidence, on the same day (27 September) S. C. historical decision acquitting 11 innocent Muslims arrested in 1994 under TADA and Supreme Court warned security agencies not to target particular community to force then to say "I am Khan I am not terrorist" what a coincidence and security agencies must be made accountable then only bias against Muslim can be tackled.

If Mallya is a killer, what about Modi and Advani?
N. D. A. convenor JD (U) M. P. from Madhepura Sharad Yadav opined that kingfisher airline owner Vijay Mallya was killer and he was responsible for airline company staff’s wife suicide. He demanded Mallya’s arrest. This is dark side of our democracy that for just one unfortunate suicide, so-called secular leaders openly demand arrest of responsible person but for power sharing they sit with Modis, Advanis and Kodnanis. They don’t care thousands and thousands Muslim killing in Gujarat 2002 riots and 1992 Advani rath bloody yatra.

Cyber crime
India is seen with a new kind of threat in the world of cyberspace by being a poorly protected country in this domain. If you look at the recent figures, around 42 Million Indians were scammed online in 2011. Hence the urge to train a number of officials to combat this battle against cybercrime is critical for India. Luckily, as per the reports, Indian Govt has plans to train 5, 00,000 trainees to fight the crime effectively. The circumstances demand more number of ethical hackers, which the government considered a taboo in the past, however, is now termed as vital. There is no doubt that India simply lacks the required tools and supply to track and curb the ongoing crime. With the increasing dependency on the web, it is vital for the Indian government to invest in cyber education by including IT security at college level.’ With such creditable knowledge it can be assured that cyber crime can be brought under control. It is also an added force to fight the battle as it can be expected that the youth of the nation will also take active participation in the warfare along with the police to constrain this hazard towards the society and nation and curtail cyber crime.

Social Media and Our Society
Indian society is undergoing rapid transformation and internal turmoil. With the advent and frequent use of social media viz. facebook, twitter, etc., social issues are posted and discussed. It feels good to see Indian youths engaged in discussing social issues. But the communal forces and hate groups also seems to be very active. They don’t miss a single opportunity to communalise these issues with their communal interpretation, hate speeches and spreading rumours. Unfortunately we don’t find "users of social media" understanding their motives. They are hijacked with their opinions and fulfill the purposes of communal forces. Thus, we see that inspite of "they" solving the problem, end up with chaos all around.

Although, Haj is an obligation upon every affluent Muslim, it is Allah who endows the craving in one’s mind. Two pilgrims from India who proceeded to Haj this year must have seen quite a different world when they had joined three million pilgrims at Mecca. The bollywood actor Aamir Khan accompanied his mother Zeenat Husain who is reported to have expressed her desire to perform Haj. The other instance would certainly raise the eyebrows of one and all…because he chose to come out from the shackles of an ideology which is wedded to atheism. Abdur Rezzack Mollah, a CPM stalwart who worked as land reforms minister in the erstwhile Left Front government in West Bengal, chose to differ his party’s stand on religion, saying "My faith in the almighty was always hundred per cent. That’s the way it shall be."
Syed Sultan Mohiddin, Kadapa (A. P)
The Supreme Court in its order dated October 11, 2011 had asked all the states in the country to provide basic toilet facilities to the girl children in schools before December 31, 2011. The apex court had reminded the ruling governments that: "Right to free and compulsory education of children in the age group of six to 14 is part of the fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 21-A. This right cannot be enjoyed unless basic infrastructure is provided by the state." The court had also pointed out that the absence of toilets is the main reason why parents are reluctant to send their daughters to schools. It is a shame that the centre and the states have not heeded to the Supreme Court direction even after about one year. On the contrary, we have seen as how the State government of Haryana and Maharashtra had acted with lightening speed to allocate lands belonging to farmers and adivasis to the influential people like Robert Vadra and Nitin Gadkari.

Greatest threat to humanity and liberty
America’s illegal and in human bombing of Libya in 1986 was described by U. N. as "classis case" of terrorism. America have used all three types of weapons of mass destruction namely chemical, biological and nuclear. America had dropped bombs on 23 countries including china, Libya, Vietnam, Cuba, Korea, Indonesia, Piru, Cango, Sudan, Laos, combodia, Greneda, Nicaragoa, Yogoslavia, Panama, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. In 1945 Japan’s cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the victims of atom bombs of America. Its state terrorism, imperialism, and hegemony is reaching alarming heights. Now oil and gas rich Iran is Americas latest target. It wants to enslave the entire world in cluding India. Its crimes against humanity and heinous state terrorism had forced the desperate oppressed to pay in the same coin. In the past Iran always stood with India. Recently Iran has held non Aligned Movement (founded by Jawaharlal Nehru etc.) countries conference in Tehran. India and others, should, oppose the evil designs of imperialist America and its NATO allies. U. N. O., Non Alligned Movement Countries, Organisation of Islamic 57 countries and the world community must stop gross violations of International charter of human Rights by America and its devilish human carnage and genocide.

Whenever any demand for justice to Muslims is raised or any agitation for Muslim’s justice starts media across country start tom-toming the justice (job share according to population) anti constitutions.
