|Message of the President|
By the grace of Allah the Most Merciful, we have completed another year of increasing activities of All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat. Even after more than 52 years of the Mushawarat’s services to the community and the nation, its relevance is becoming ever vital in guiding 180 million Muslims of India and making India a better nation by promoting democratic ideals and communal harmony in sync with civil society and larger fraternity of people.
There is no denial that racist thoughts are becoming domineering while dotting the globe, here and there, and causing violence and hatred to prevail, not only in the geopolitics but also in the Indian establishments. However, those who are engaged in making a better civilized world should take this as a challenge rather than as a cause of desperation and despondency.
For this, the Muslim society has major responsibility being duty bound to sustain a benevolent community, Khair-e-Ummat, in each nook and cranny of the planet earth. We at the Mushawarat should also take our share of responsibility in this regard and contribute in whatever way possible for us.
|Note of the Secretary General|
This Annual Report of All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat for the Year 2016 place on record activities of the organization from January to December 2016. With this, we have incepted a new tradition of brining out an annual report of the organization for the consideration of all concerned.
The year 2016 was laden with new challenges within and outside the Mushawarat, to which the organization has suitably responded to, as could be seen in this report, though within the limitation of being a federal body.
It can be seen here that AIMMM has enjoyed a new vigor of receptivity during the reported year with more and more Muslim organizations and eminent personalities joining and cooperating with the Mushawarat. Its financial base has also become sounder and intensifying. The gradual geographical expanse of the Mushawarat in different states has spawned hopes of its becoming an all India body in the real sense of the term.
There is no doubt whatever headway the Mushawarat has made during the reported period was unimaginable without the active cooperation of members, associates, friends, philanthropists and state leaderships to whom we owe many thanks. Jazakallahu khairan wa khairan jaza!

The Annual Report of All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat 2016 covers activities of the organization during the past calendar year. With the onset of the two-year term of the new dispensation at the apex, in January 2016, many aspirations have spawned and many promises were made. On the completion of the first year of the term by 31st December 2016, it is natural to assess achievements of the Mushawarat on the scale of these aspirations and promises.
The incumbent president of the Mushawarat, Mr Navaid Hamid, spelled out his priorities for the organization while taking the charge of his office on 8 January 2016 and also on the occasion of the first General Meeting of Members on 31 January, which include democratic governance of AIMMM, inclusion of vital Muslim organizations and individuals in its fold, reduction of sectarian divide within the community by giving representation to left out groups within its structure and geographical expansion and consolidation of its base in different states. He also promised to undertake dialogue with different sections for promotion of communal harmony and mutual understanding in the arising challenges in the country. It is a matter of satisfaction that there has been significant progress on all these fronts. Besides, the financial stability and resources as regards recurring as well as planned expenditure have also increased. Receptivity and familiarity of the organization among common people has also steadily got enhanced.
The following report, while giving details on different activities under this umbrella body of the Muslim community, also substantiates veracity of this general assessment. However, readers of this report may be better assessor of achievements and shortcomings of the Mushawarat during the past year in their own right. As information about activities of the AIMMM contained in this Annual Report has been brief, more information on them can be had by referring to the Mushawarat Quarterly Bulletin Vol. 11 No. 1-4.
- Organizational Affairs
- New Dispensation
New two-year term of All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (MMM), from January 2016 to December 2017, began with the elections of its president and 20 members of the Markazi Majlis-e-Amla (MMA), i.e. the central executive committee, on 1st January 2016. The process was initiated on 3 October 1015 with the announcement of elections and got culminated on 8 January 2016 with the new president and his elected team taking charge of the organization for a two-year term. In the charge transfer ceremony on the day, former presidents of the AIMMM Mr Syed Shahbuddin and Dr Zafarul Islam Khan were also present. Ml Syed Jalauluddin Umari, Ameer of Jamat-e-Islami Hind, was there as a special guest. Mr Abdul Rashid Agwan presented the report of the electoral process on behalf of the Election Office and formally declared Mr Navaid Hamid elected as the 7th president of the AIMMM to be in office for a two-year term, i.e. 2016-2017.
While using constitutional provisions, the President Mr Navaid Hamid nominated in different spells office-bearers of the MMM, 9 members of the MMA to make its present tally to be of 29 members, advisor to the President and also 2 Executive Secretaries. The office-bearers comprised 3 vice-presidents, one secretary general and four general secretaries, as stipulated in the Constitution of the AIMMM. It may be regarded as a specialty of the year that for the first time a woman member was elected to the MMA, who was subsequently elevated as the first lady vice-president of the AIMMM.
The complete list of the Office-Bearers and Executive Members of the Mushawarat may be referred in Annexure-1.
- Supreme Guidance Council
The Supreme Guidance Council of the AIMMM is its apex body as regards supervision and general guidance of the organization. It is based on renowned and highly respected members of the organization. The Council does not get involved in the routine affairs of the Mushawarat but can guide the president and the MMA/MMM on certain important matters.
The President Mr Navaid Hamid notified new Supreme Guidance Council on 7 November 2016 after consulting majority members of the Council for the time being. The added names in the previous composition are Maulana Tauqir Raza Khan, Dr Maulana Syed Kalbe Sadiq, Mr Moosa Raza and the current president of the AIMMM himself.
The complete list of members of the Supreme Guidance Council may be referred in Annexure-2.
- Standing Committee
The Standing Committee of the Mushawarat, based on its office-bearers, is its top executive body. It is expected that the Committee will meet once in a month to plan, review and monitor activities in the light of decisions of the MMA and MMM or of its own. It has been resolved to hold meetings of the office-bearers generally on the second Saturday every month. Besides them, Executive Secretaries and conveners of subcommittees are also invited to join the meeting as special invitees.
While the Secretary General has been given all freedom to assist the President in administrative and policy matters the work distribution among general secretaries was like this: Mr Amanullah Khan was made incharge of organizational matters; Mr Ahmad Raza of financial matters; Mr Saiyid Samar Hamid to guide the team regarding planning and Mr Sheikh Manzoor Ahmad to look into media matters. All these office-bearers tried their best during the past year to provide their cooperation to the Mushawarat in the desired way.
During the reported period, six meetings of the Committee were held on the dates mentioned hereunder.
|1.||20 February 2016||4.||11 August, 2016|
|2.||3 April 2016||5.||15 November 2016|
|3.||28 June 2016||6.||16 December 2016|
Three meetings could not be held due to MMA meetings around the same time.
The major concerns of the Committee during the outgoing year had been progress on the decisions of the MMA and MMM, working of the subcommittees, scheduling and planning for the meetings of MMA and MMM and fund mobilization.
- Markazi Majlis-e-Amla
The Markazi Majlis-e-Amla (MMA) is the apex decision making and assessing body of the AIMMM. After resuming his office, the President Mr Navaid Hamid nominated Mr Mujtaba Farooq as the Secretary General. He also appointed 2 vice-presidents and 4 general secretaries by the first general meeting of MMM. Besides, he nominated 7 members for the MMA in addition to the 20 elected members of the body. He later on nominated 2 more members to fully use his right to nominate 10 members of the Amla, save one. He also appointed one more vice-president on 7th December 2016. Now, the MMA comprises the President and 29 Members of the MMA. (Vide Annexure-1)
Mr Navaid Hamid appointed Mr Akif Ahmad as the Executive Secretary during his first month in office and assigned him the work of technical advice to him such as maintenance of the website. He appointed Mr Abdul Rashid Agwan as another Executive Secretary with the general executive assignment and also as editor of the resumed Mushawarat Quarterly Bulletin with effect from 2nd August 2016.
The MMA is supposed to hold quarterly meetings for discharging its functions. It was resolved in the first general meeting of the AIMMM that meetings of the MMA will be held in different cities and it was earnestly pursued. A score of issues were taken into consideration, decisions were taken as regards these issues, organizational affairs and burning problems and progress of the organization was monitored. Appropriate resolutions were passed to put on record the Mushawarat’s stand on them and for wider information and advocacy.
The key concerns of the MMA during the reported time were the execution and monitoring of decisions, stand on the issues of Triple Talaq and Uniform Civil Code, responses to the communal situation in different parts of the country, violence in Jammu Kashmir, stand on different national and international events, settlement with Mushawarat Trust, copyright of the “Mushawarat Documents”, resolution of disputes and controversies within the Mushawarat and the like.
The following four meetings of the MMA were held during the year:
- First MMA Meeting: 31 January 2016 in New Delhi
- Second MMA Meeting: 16 April 2016 at Bhopal
- Third MMA Meeting: 17 July in Kolkata
- Fourth MMA Meeting: 16 October 2016 in Mumbai
- Markazi Majlis-e-Mushawarat
The Markazi Majlis-e-Mushawarat (MMM) comprises all central members and the representatives of Member Organizations and functions as the general body of the Mushawarat. The state presidents are its ex-officio members.
The total number of MMM’s members got increased during the term from the previous 168 to 204 by the close of the reported term, due to addition of 23 individual members and 13 members representing 7 new Member Organizations. 3 individual members have renewed their membership after lapse of a long time and one member was allowed to become member before December 2016, but he completed the formality by January 2017 only. Thus, in all, 27 individual members joined during the year. The criteria for the inclusion of new individual members has been to give due representation to different social groups of the Muslim community for making the Mushawarat wide-based.
During the year, 2 meetings of the MMM were held; the first one at the beginning of the session, i.e. on 31st January in New Delhi and the other almost by the mid-year, on 17 July in Kolkata. The latter meeting was held in Kolkata in accordance with the decision to hold meetings of the MMA and MMM in different parts of the country for creating its base among people there.
The major issues discussed and decided by the MMM included responses to the communal situation, Mushawarat’s stand on Triple Talaq and Uniform Civil Code, minority character of Muslim institutions, Ordinance on Enemy Property, dialogue with different sections of the country, violence in Kashmir Valley, cow vigilantism, atrocities on Muslims in Jharkhand, National Education Policy 2016, situation in Assam, internal discord and the like.
The subcommittees that were formed by the MMA/MMM remained active during the year included Committee on Constitutional Amendment, Committee on Waqf Affairs, Committee on Educational Conference, Organizing Committee for Convention on Dalit-Minority Cooperation and Committee on Mushawarat Trust Affairs. Committee on Government Affairs, Committee on Education, Committee on Enemy Property and Committee on Mushawarat Documents did not resume their assigned function.
- Committee on Constitutional Amendments: It held meetings on 27th February, 23rd April and 9th September 2016 and its last proposed meeting on 31st October got postponed. In the meeting of the Standing Committee held on 16 December 2016, the convener of the Committee was advised by its members to make a summary note on the suggested amendments already submitted by him in the Mushawarat office.
The members of the committee included: Mr Amanullah Khan (Convener), Mr Syed Shahabuddin, Dr Zafarul Islam Khan, Mufti Ataur Rahman Qasmi, Adv. Feroz Ghazi and Adv. Aijaz Maqbool. Mr Navaid Hamid and Mr Mujtaba Farooq have been its Ex-Officio Members. Dr M.R. Haque was also co-opted by the Committee as member but he declined to join at a later stage.
- Committee on Waqf and Educational Affairs: Committee on Waqf and Educational Affairs is headed by Dr M.R. Haque alias Qaisar Shameem with Mr Jawed Alam Khan as another member. One national consultation and a few state level consultations on Waqf administration were conceived under its goal. Mr Jawed Alam Khan could not be involved as member in the functioning of the Committee.
For organizing the “National Consultation on Auqaf” on 3 April 2016 in New Delhi, an organizing committee was formed based on Dr M.R. Haque, Mr Abdul Rashid Agwan, Adv. Feroz Khan Ghazi and Mr Syed Tahseen Ahmad, which held three meetings for planning and execution of things regarding the convention. The first state level convention was organized in Madhya Pradesh on 30 October 2016 with the support of local members and the Convener of the Committee Dr M.R. Haque participated and presented the keynote.
- Committee on Educational Conference: This Committee held several meetings including the last two ones on 16 August and 22 September 2016. The Committee prepared the objective, policies, outlines and schedule of the proposed two-day conference and is likely to submit shortly its due proposal to the Standing Committee for its consideration and further action. However, there was some confusion between the AIMMM and its partner for the proposed educational conference, All Indian Educational Movement as regards modalities of its holding. Moreover, it was resolved by the functionaries of both the organizations to invite the Vice-President Mr Hamid Ansari as its chief guest, which consumed much of the time in approaching him and nothing could materialized in this regard.
The committee comprised Mr Muzaffar Ali (Convener), Mr Amanullah Khan, Mr Samar Hamid, Mr M.R. Haque and Mr Abdul Rashid Agwan. Mr Haque later resigned from it.
- Committee on Triple Talaq: A committee was formed after the consultation on “Interference of Governments and Judiciary in Shariah”, as held on 16 May 2016 for advising the Mushawarat on the issue of Triple Talaq and Uniform Civil Code. It held two meetings and prepared 2 letters for the consideration of All India Muslim Personal Law Board apart from discussing the Mushawarat’s response on the concerning issues.
The committee comprises Maulana Hafiz Syed Athar Ali (Convener), Maulana Asghar Ali Imam Mahadi, Mr Nusrat Ali and Mrs Uzma Naheed. Later on Dr SQR Ilyas was also coopted in the committee.
- Committee on Dalit-Minority Cooperation: On the call of the President Mr Navaid Hamid more than 30 Dalit and Muslim activists joined a meeting on 2 April 2016 at the Mushawarat’s office for discussing on need, contents and modalities of Dalit-Muslim Dialogue. At the end it was resolved that all participants of the meeting will be taken as members of the Organizing Committee for the proposed Dalit-Minority Cooperation. Another meeting of the committee was held on 6 August 2016 for finalizing the concept note of the envisaged convention.
Please refer Annexure-3 for the list of members of the Organizing Committee)
- Committee on Mushawarat Trust Affairs: In order to settle different issues that had emerged during discussions of the MMA/MMM meetings about the Mushawarat Trust, a committee was formed in the MMA meeting in Mumbai on 16 October 2016. The Committee held its first meeting on 1 November 2016 and came out with concrete suggestions on the assigned work.
The committee comprises these members: Ml. Asghar Ali Imam Mahadi (Convener), Mr Mohammad Jafar, Mr Nusrat Ali and Mr Anis Durrani.
The following subcommittees did not report any activity.
- Committee on Government Affairs: Mr Khwja Mohammad Shahid (Convener), Dr Javed Jamil and Mr Aaris Mohammad
- Committee on Enemy Property: Mr Ameer Mohammad Khan Raja Mahmoodabad (Convener), Dr SQR Ilyas and Mr Akhtar Husain Akhtar
- Committee on Mushawarat Documents: It was formed in MMA meeting in Mumbai to settle the matter with Dr Zafarul Islam Khan, comprising Mr Mujtaba Farooq (Convener), Ml Asghar Ali Imam Mahadi and Mr Nusrat Ali. No progress has been reported by 31 December 2016.
- Member Organizations’ Meet
The first ever meeting of key functionaries of Member Organizations of All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat was held on 7th December 2016 at the Mushawarat Office. The President of AIMMM Mr Navaid Hamid chaired the meeting joined by representatives of the Member Organizations, office-bearers of AIMMM and special invitees. Overall representatives of 9 out of 16 Member Organizations joined. The attending representatives belonged to MOs Jamat-e-Islami Hind, Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadees, Tameer-e-Millat, South Asian Minority Lawyers Association, All India Educational Movement, UP Rabita Committee, Association of Muslim Professionals, All India Jamiat Quresh and MOEMIN.
The major conclusions of the meeting can be marked as follows:
- The closer association of Member Organizations especially for Common Minimum Program is very important and should be developed further.
- The proportionate representation of the Member Organizations should increase at different levels of the Mushawarat, e.g. from 2 to 5 in the MMM.
- The Mushawarat needs stable resources for its planned activities and the Member Organizations should help it in this regard.
- The Mushawarat should have some set priorities and focus on them.
- The Mushawarat should play its role effectively in bridging the Muslim community with other sections of the country and it should act more as a facilitator with the government on behalf of the community rather than merely as a protesting platform.
According to the Membership List as on 31 December 2016, there are 204 members of the Markazi Majlis-e-Mushawarat (MMM). Out of them, 29 represent respective Member Organizations whereas 175 are individual members being eminent Muslims in their own right. In all, 27 new individual members and 13 organizational members have joined the Mushawarat during the reported period.
There are total 16 Member Organizations (MOs) associated with AIMMM, supposed to nominate 2 members each to represent them in the Mushawarat, to have 32 organizational members in its central body in principle. However, All India Shia Conference has not nominated any member since long whereas only one member represents All India OBC Organisation. Thus, there are only 29 members under this category. Indian Union Muslim League and Tameer-e-Millat revived their memberships of the Mushawarat after a union lapse of long time whereas Association of Muslim Professionals, All India Educational Movement, Movement for Empowerment of Indian Muslims, All India Jamit Quresh and All India OBC Organisation joined it during the year. Hence, 13 new members under this category were nominated by these MOs.
After joining his office, the President Mr Navaid Hamid admitted 22 new individual members during the reported year at his own or recommended by other office-bearers, whereas 4 previous members renewed their membership after a long time and one member formalized his membership during the term but was actually permitted by the outgoing president some time before, making the total new members of the year as 27. The policy to make AIMMM evermore wide-based borne fruits to some extent and cross-sections of the Muslim community are coming closer to the Mushawarat.
It is regrettable that 13 members had not paid membership fee for three or more years and were served due notices whereas one member had died during the period.
Please refer Annexure-4 for further details.
- Circle of Friends
Circle of Friends of Mushawarat (CFM) remains a highly dependable financial base for the organization. Such a Friend promises to pay AIMMM an amount of Rs 10,000 per annum.
At the beginning of the new term, there were only three active CFM members left. Of which, one expressed his disinclination to continue his contribution, but the other two fervently paid their share. The President Mr Navaid Hamid, the Secretary General Mr Mujtaba Farooq, the General Secretary (Finance) Mr Ahmed Raza and other office-bearers and members took active interest towards mobilizing philanthropists to come forward and help the Mushawarat by joining the CFM with their commitment of providing it a stable financial source for its recurring and planned activities. Consequently, 33 new CFM members were persuaded to join the group by 31st December 2016. Besides, 2 Associates have also joined, who each contributed Rs 5,000 to AIMMM.
Please refer complete list of CFM members in Annexure-5.
- Organizational Structures in States
One of the priorities of the Mushawarat during the reported time was to reinforce state level organizational structures. Letters signed by the Secretary General Mr Mujtaba Farooq or General Secretary (Organizational Affairs) have been sent to the incharge/convener/presidents of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat for systematization of organizational activities. Consequently, state leadership of the Mushawarat has become somewhat active during the year, however to differing degrees right from properly elected state committee in office to expression of interest to work systematically as the constitution of the Mushawarat demands.
Election of a two-year term of Delhi Reyasati Mushawarat was held on 25 December 2016 in which Mr Khwaja Mohammad Shahid was the Returning Officer and Mr Akif Ahmad was the Observer. Elections for a two-year term have been fixed for Uttar Pradesh on January 1, 2017 in which Mr Tariq Siddiqui will be Returning Officer and Mr Abdul Rashid Agwan will go as the central observer. Functionaries of Bihar and Madhya Pradesh have also started the process for organizational elections there. The leaders of West Bengal reported that they were yet to complete the current two-year term by October 2017 and would hold elections by that time. In Jharkhand, a new convener was elected by the local members to further lead organizational work there. An ad hoc committee was formed for Telangana which will conduct elections of the state committee soon. A list of local members have been provided for the formation of executive committee in Mumbai and hopefully there will be a properly elected committee in the metro shortly. A separate structure will be formed for Maharashtra as well. Members and associates are active and take interest for the development of organizational structure in Goa, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Assam. Reorganization of committee in Gujarat is also impending.
There is no doubt that efforts for constitutionally required state bodies of the Mushawarat are gradually making impact and many states will have properly functioning committee there by March 2017. The major states left out of the purview of the present organizational expansion comprise Rajasthan, Karnataka, Chhattisgarh and Manipur and may be covered by the ensuing year.
- Organizational Tours
The office-bearers and other members undertook the following tours for the assigned purposes. Some other organizational visits were planned but could not be held due to some unavoidable reasons. However, the Standing Committee has chalked out a schedule of visits of Secretary General and General Secretary (Organizational Affairs) during the next few months like to Hyderabad, Mumbai, Ahmadabad, Patna, Kolkata, Guwahati, etc.
In all 26 visits were made, 7 by Mr Navaid Hamid, 11 by Mr Mujtaba Farooq, 5 by Mr Amanullah Khan and 3 by Mr Abdul Rashid Agwan.
The details of these visits may be referred in the Annexure-6.
- Resumption of Mushawarat Quarterly Bulletin
Mushawarat Quarterly Bulletin has been published since June 2000. However, from July 2013 onwards it remained discontinued. After a lapse of almost three years, its publication was resumed with a combined copy of three quarters, i.e. from January to September 2016. In this regard, though desire to republish it was there from the very beginning of the new term but it got materialized when the President Mr Navaid Hamid requested Mr Abdul Rashid Agwan to be its editor and he gave his node. With mutual consultation between them, an editorial board was also formed comprising Dr S.Q.R. Ilyas, Shaikh Manzoor Ahmad, Mr Abdul Rashid Ansari and Mr Akif Ahmad as its members and Mr Mujtaba Farooq the Secretary General as the publisher of the Bulletin.
It was also thought proper to make it bilingual by publishing some essential documents in Urdu language, apart from main body of the text in English. The print order of the resumed issue was kept to be 1000 copies. Preparation for the issue of the next quarter, i.e. October-December 2016, is in progress.
- Mushawarat on Social Media
In the age of social media, it is important to use it for better communication and dissemination of information. AIMMM has its website with the URL: www.mushawarat.com since 2000. During the reported time, it was redesigned under the supervision of the Executive Secretary Mr Akif Ahmad. Updation of contents such as reports, messages, press notes, publication of Bulletin, photos of activities, etc is taken up regularly though not very effectively.
Besides, the Whatsapp group of AIMMM was also created by the President Mr Navaid Hamid on 2016 with himself as its admin. It was created on 5 May 2016 and presently has 86 group members out of 204 members of the MMM. There is a need that the Mushawarat should also have a Facebook page. Though President Mr Navaid Hamid uses his tweeter account to highlight policies of the Mushawarat, but the organization needs its own tweeter-handle for having an official presence in this microblogging space.
- Mushawarat in Print and Electronic Media
Both Urdu and national print media have been taking active interest in the Mushawarat for quite some time. Press statements and news stories on the activities of the Mushawarat have often been given due space in media.
For hobnobbing the fraternity of media, a Media Meet was organized during the year on 14 June 2016. Moreover, the Mushawarat held press conferences on the issues on minority character of Muslim institutions and violence in Kashmir in New Delhi. Press conferences were also arranged in Bhopal, Kolkata, Lucknow and Mumbai for addressed by the President or other functionary of the organization. The General Secretary Mr. Amanullah Khan held a press conference in Aligarh for information of the proposed Annual General Meeting there, which was later on shifted to New Delhi due to assembly elections there on the same date.
Electronic channels called Mr Navaid many times as the president of AIMMM to participate in debates on such issues as violence in Kashmir, cross-border terrorism, Najeeb’s disappearance, vilification of Dr Zakir Naik and the like.
It is perhaps for the first time that OB Vans seen outside the Mushawarat to connect live debates and news on different channels.
- Mushawarat Trust
The Mushawarat Trust was formed in 2007 for the protection of assets and properties of AIMMM. However, it became a point of discord between the Trustees of the Trust and the new leadership of the Mushawarat when it became evident that the Trust Deed does not give any access to the successive leadership of the Mushawarat in the decision-making and execution of the Trust and, in fact, was legally a separate entity. The MMA took note of the facts in the light of expert advices and took three decisions: The Building of the Mushawarat is not owned by the Trust, a new trust should be formed with proper provision to give successive Mushawarat leadership its hold and the balance of the proposed amount transferred from the AIMMM account to the Trust account should be returned back to AIMMM or its proposed trust. In order to resolve these matters between the AIMMM and Mushawarat Trust, a committee was formed by the MMA in its meeting held in Mumbai on 16 October 2016. It is hoped that the discord among all the concerned as regards the Mushawarat Trust would be settled soon.
- Mushawarat Documents
The copyright of “Mushawarat Documents” prepared under the supervision and financial support of Dr Zafarul Islam Khan, the previous president of AIMMM, was a major touchy issue during the reported period. “Mushawarat Documents” is a name of two volumes, one in English and another in Urdu, which contain all available documents of meetings, statements and decisions of the Mushawarat since its inception in 1964 till 2014 and were informally released on the occasion of Golden Jubilee Conference. Dr Zafarul Islam Khan deems that he has the copyright of these documents as he has invested on them his time and energy, whereas there is a counter view prevailing in the Mushawarat that the organization has their copyright as the major body of the work was compiled by Mr Syed Shahabuddin, another former president, and a number of organizations and individuals helped in the collection of rare documents of these volumes and that the documents have official status for the AIMMM and should be given back to it for publication. The latter view also endorses the right of Dr Khan to get reimbursed, whatever amount he has incurred in their preparation.
The matter was first raised in the meeting of MMA on 17 April 2016 held at Bhopal. Then, in the light of decision of the MMA, Mr Mujtaba Farooq wrote a letter to Dr Zafarul Islam Khan for returning back the Documents while getting his investment being settled up. Dr Khan declined to his offer. The matter again came on the agenda of the MMA meeting held in Mumbai on 16 October 2016. Members appealed Dr Khan to hand over the Manuscript’s soft copy to the Mushawarat as his one more significant contribution to it but he was not ready. The MMA constituted a committee under the charge of Mr Mujtaba Farooq to talk to him in details on the issue and try to persuade him to go by the feelings of the members. So far no progress has been reported since then.
- Renovation of the Mushawarat Building
Renovation of the Mushawarat building has become indispensible as it had became shabby and worn out. Moreover, with the increasing activities, it has become essential to make provision of larger space for meetings of members and activities of the organization. The decision to establish a reference library also led to the undertaken renovation.
Accordingly, it was planned to dismantle the wall of one room for expanding space of the central hall, have proper office of the President who was almost coming daily to the office. The washrooms of the flats in the building were creating problems for the renters and needed an overdue repair and maintenance work. The front elevation had grown quite shabby and was causing disrepute for AIMMM as an umbrella body of Muslim organizations. Hence, the desired renovation was gradually taken up and it is likely to complete by next few months.
Though the renovation work was initially taken up for some internal changes only, however, it gradually got on sprawling and led to some kind of major restoration of the building. The generous support of some philanthropists within and outside the organization has also given an impetus to it. It is hoped that the Mushawarat building will soon have President’s Office, Secretariat, library, visitors lounge, meeting room, conference hall and a eight-bed boarding facility as planned.
Under the organizational matters, the following activities are also noteworthy:
- A women’s meeting was held in March 2016 at Mushawarat Office joined by around 30 ladies who were giving briefing as regards the objectives, background and activities of the Mushawarat and the role of women in that regard.
- In the light of decision of the joint meeting of MMA and MMM on 17 July 2016 in Kolkata as regards holding a youth convention in association with the Students Islamic Organisation of India, a member organization of AIMMM, the President have discussed the matter several times with its president Mr Iqbal Hasan and with other associates of the SIO but nothing has materialized so far in that regard.
- In some informal meetings, the President has discussed with like-minded media persons to explore possibilities of holding a national convention of Muslim media persons for advising the Mushawarat and the community on using media effectively.
- When the computer of the office got dysfunctional for more than a fortnight, appeal was made for financial cooperation and consequently two computers were added in the office of which one was new one and a non-Muslim friend of one member of the Mushawarat donated the other one.

- Some previous member organizations were persuaded to rejoin the Mushawarat and consequently Indian Union Muslim League and Tameer-e-Millat (Hyderabad) renewed their membership.
- Some additional organizations working in different fields were successfully convinced to become member of AIMMM. Resultantly, Association of Muslim Professionals, Movement for Empowerment of Indian Muslims, All India Educational Movement and All India OBC Organisation joined it.
- By the previous term no member of the Shia sect remained associated with the Mushawarat. On the persuasion of the President, Maulana Dr Kalbe Sadiq rejoined it.

- Responses on the Issue of Triple Talaq
When the Supreme Court admitted a petition of a woman from Uttarkhand on the issue of Triple Talaq prevalent in some sections of the Muslim community, it became apparent that a new legal debate was going to take place in the country. And, it was soon so. All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) filed an affidavit in the apex court to contest the petition and Jamiatul Ulama subsequently followed suit. Amidst the growing controversy around ‘Triple Talaq’, the Mushawarat held a high level discussion on 16 May at India International Centre, New Delhi on “Consultation of Interference of Governments and Judiciary in Shariah”. In order to continuously work on the issue, a committee was formed to advise the Mushawarat as regards further action in that regard. (Vide list of members under 1.6.d)
The committee prepared suggestions in the light of proceedings of the Consultation and sent the same to the President of AIMPLB as an advisory dated 19 May 2016. As there was no response from the Board and its affidavit was further scrutinized, a detailed letter was further sent to him on behalf of the Mushawarat dated 24 October 2016.
The news of Law Commission’s intention to seek public opinion on Uniform Civil Code came to light in the first week of October and it further infuriated Muslim leadership and masses who resolved to oppose the government move against the Personal Law. The President Mr Navaid Hamid constantly remained in touch with other leaders of the community and tried to shape better perspective on the issue among them. When the General Secretary of the Board, Maulana Wali Rahmani, called a meeting in New Delhi on 11 October, Mr Navaid joined it and suggested to boycott the questionnaire floated by the Law Commission of India, which was accepted and declared in public in the press conference held on 13 October 2016. It was also resolved there that the issue should not give any chance to political polarization.
The Mushawarat also held a discussion on the issue of Talaq-e-Salasa in its Mumbai session on 17 October 2016 in which more than 60 Ulama of the city and also from different parts of Maharashtra joined. It was convened by Maulana Hafiz Athar Ali, the convener of the Mushawarat’s Committee on Triple Talaq.

The participants included minster from a state, former members of the Parliament, chairpersons of State Waqf Boards, lawyers of High Courts and Supreme Court and a number of social activists. Based on the consultation, the Mushawarat prepared a draft Memorandum to be submitted to State Governments. The consultation was convened by Dr M.R. Haque alias Shameem Qaser, the incharge of Mushawarat’s Committee on Waqf Affairs.

- Minority Character of AMU and Other Institutions
The Mushawarat organized a consultation on the issue of minority character of Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia Islamia on 2 February 2016 at its office. The issue became hot due to the fact that the central government has become apathetic and non-cooperative on the cases pending in the Supreme Court on their minority status and the AMU community was agitating on the government’s stand opposing the minority character of these premier institutions of India. A number of Aligharians and deeply concerned community leaders have joined the meeting.
Mr Navaid Hamid the President of AIMMM, Mr Nusrat Ali the Vice-President of Jamat-e-Islami Hind, Mr Mohammad Ahamd Secretary Jamat-e- Islami Hind, Prof. Basir Ahmad Khan, Dr SQR Ilyas, etc participated on behalf of the Mushawarat along with many other participants.
