New Delhi, October 24: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has appealed to people of the country to thwart the attempts of communal forces to polarize votes by creating communal tension in different parts of the country. People should reject communal parties in the upcoming elections for five assemblies and Lok Sabha, said JIH at the end of the three-day Special Session of its Central Advisory Council (Markazi Majlise Shoora) here on Sunday.
After marathon meeting and thorough deliberations over national and international issues, the CAC adopted some resolutions. The Special Session of CAC was presided over by Ameer (National President) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari and attended by CAC members and special invitees including Mohammad Jafar – Vice President, Nusrat Ali – General Secretary, TK Abdullah Maulvi, Syed Saadatullah Hussaini, Dr. Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas, Dr. Mohammad Rafat, Mohammad Salim Engineer, H Abdur Raqeeb, Ejaz Ahmed Aslam, S Ameenul Hasan, Mujtaba Farooq, T Arif Ali, Maulana Waliullah Sayeedi Falahi, Parwaaz Rahmani, VK Ali, Maulana Mohammad Rafeeque Qasmi, Mohammad Ahmed and Mohammad Iqbal Mulla.
The CAC expressed its deep concerns that political parties are not giving attention to the serious issues and problems being faced by the common people like corruption, inflation, growing influence of western imperialism, moral degradation and cultural invasion of the West, communal tension and new wave of communal riots, and spread of fascism and regional chauvinism.
The minorities of the country, deprived sections of the society and the half population of the country i.e. women are feeling insecure. The new generation is hopeless about its future and seeking solace in entertainment activities, drugs, wine and sex. While baseless allegations of terrorism and illegal arrest of youths by police and intelligence agencies have severely disturbed the Muslim community, their real issues are being ignored by the governments and political parties, said the CAC.
The CAC also criticized the media for not highlighting real issues and promoting sensational and emotional journalism just for their TRP ratings and business interests. It appealed to the media to do responsible journalism, invest their energy and resources in highlighting the real issues of the masses and apprise the political parties and governments of their responsibilities.
The CAC demanded the central government to pass the laws to check communal violence and remove encroachments on waqf properties and accept the recommendations of Ranganath Mishra Commission in the coming session of Parliament. The central government should honestly implement all the recommendations of Sachar Committee, the CAC demanded.
On international issues, the CAC of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind strongly condemned the illegal toppling of Mohammad Morsi government in Egypt and criminal silence of democratic countries on the brutal killing of pro-democracy people in Egypt.
The Special Session of CAC demanded the Government of India to play an important role for the protection of democracy and human rights in Egypt as it did in the case of Myanmar and South Africa.
The CAC strongly condemned the shameful attitude of some Muslim and Arab countries towards the situation in Egypt. It is shameful and painful that Muslim rulers have joined hands with anti-Islam forces to annihilate the pro-Islam forces.
The CAC also strongly condemned the atrocities and brutalities by the Syrian government on their innocent citizens. The anti-Islam mindset of Bashar Al-Asad and his family is an open secret. These rulers have killed thousands of Islamic leaders, Ulema and intellectuals and massacred their own people just because they announced their association with Islam and Islamic Movement.
“The CAC feels that the time has now come that the Pharaoh of Syria is sacked and prosecuted for crimes against humanity. For this purpose, Arab League, OIC and Islamic and Arab countries should come forward,” demanded CAC.
The Special Session of CAC also condemned the reopening of the legally resolved old cases against opposition leaders in Bangladesh and misuse of laws and gross violation of human rights by the present regime.
The CAC appealed to Muslim nations, democratic countries of the world, Government of India and international organizations of human rights to impress upon the Bangladesh government to end this atrocity.
The CAC urged Muslim world and Muslims in India to overcome their differences and strengthen unity among them for the sake of Islam and humanity.
