New Delhi, 15 February. In a press conference held here today under the aegis of All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat at its central office in Jamia Nagar, the President Mr Navaid Hamid and Secretary General Mr Mujtaba Faooq addressed media persons on various crucial issues of the time including UP elections, triple talaq, repression of people in Kashmir and Assam, terrorism related arrests of BJP associates in Madhya Pradesh and the like.
Mr Navaid Hamid said that UP elections were crucial for political stability in India and appreciated that people in the state didn’t subscribe to communal polarization exerted by RSS linked groups for more than a year for political advantage. However, he appealed, there is need that people should vote in larger numbers in the remaining phases too, to those parties which have their ideologies imbeded in the constitutional values and rule of law.
On the issue of triple talaq Navaid Hamid briefed about the stand of Mushawarat to support the move of All India Muslim Personal Law Board though strongly feeling the need for internal reformation of Muslim society for a better divorcing practice.
While referring to the resolution adopted by the general body of Mushawarat three days back as regards situation in Kashmir, its office bearers said that the Mushawarat condemns human rights violations in Kashmir, appeals for initiation of multiparty dialogue by the government for peace and stability in the region and demands immediate revocation of AFPSA and PSA acts from the Valley.
Navaid Hamid criticized that the BJP government in Assam is trying to create Kashmir like situation there by targeting local citizens in the name of infiltration and putting hundreds of innocent people in detention centers.
The Mushawarat President felt satisfied that the recent arrests of ISI agents in Madhya Pradesh have once again proved the claim of Muslim leadership that terrorism in India is the monopoly of Hindutva outfits and Muslim organizations and youths were targetted by media and law enforcement agencies just to hide that truth.
