The recent concerns pertaining to Indian and other Muslim communities of the world raised by ALL INDIA MUSLIM MAJLIS-E- MASHAWARAT is a welcome move.
It is perhaps for the first time after independence that Muslims from all shades of thought under AIMMM have converged together to discuss their problems and raise the common concerns of the community.
It is the grave predicament of history that Muslims of the subcontinent got fragmented for a seemingly noble cause, but Alas! The creation of an ideal Islamic /welfare state still remains a distant dream. There are no tangible signs that such a dream state could be established owing to our internal strife, weak economy, and leadership crisis, lack of proper understanding of Islamic teachings, intolerant, sectarian approach and other external resistive forces. The concerns raised by AIMMM are genuine and authorities should respond the situation positively. The need of the time is that Indian Muslims get united and forge a strong alliance to safe guard their interests. We should learn to shun the self created barriers, adhere to universal message of our religion without being parochial .If we continue to remain segregated on the basis of region, language, masalak or any other identity then we have no right to live and we shall be exploited, killed and subjugated. I think the agenda of AIMMM should be followed by all of us and make this emerging voice a strong and potent one.
The Majlis has done well by raising the concerns of Muslims of Kashmir and Muslims of other parts of the world.
