  • The convention of JIH resolves and affirms that Islam teaches every Muslim to be a well wisher and a positive contributor to the welfare of his country. We shall stand together towards the general well-being of our country, raise our voice against oppression and keep reminding our government its Constitutional responsibilities as part of our Islamic duties.
  • In response to the situation prevailing in the country pertaining to women, and a deteriorating state of gender relations, this convention of JIH feels it improper on the part of government to completely ignore the causes that have promoted atrocities on women and to be satisfied with symptomatic treatment while leaving the disease itself untreated. The treatment of women as objects without feelings in the film industry, in advertising, in fashion shows and in pornography must be immediately stopped by Government Ordinance and moral training. Likewise this convention strongly demands the implementation in word and spirit the directive principle of our Constitution to prohibit alcohol that is now more freely available than water the remotest Indian villages. This convention while agreeing with the Verma Commission report on its recommendations regarding AFSPA, disagrees with it and asserts that non-consensual intercourse within marriage is not rape and must be dealt with separately. We shall strive to seek dignity and honor for women, provide security and liberty and preserve their modesty as part of our Islamic inspiration.
  • The convention commends the government on its pro-people, pro-poor implementation of Vajpayee Arogya Shree and Sakala, on its successful conduct of panchayat elections and its good maintenance of law and order. However it takes serious note of the spread of corruption under the current government and the fall of moral standards in its political discourse. The convention is pained and anguished by the unacceptable treatment meted out to Muslim youth under the garb of fighting terrorism. We demand fast track justice and fair treatment for these youth until the law reaches its logical conclusion. However in case they are proven innocent, these youth must be apologized to, must be compensated for and must be rehabilitated. The police officers who frame innocents must be punished equally strongly as terrorist themselves should be.
  • Democratic government is a government of the people and not of a party or of a community or a particular caste, as it seemingly appears to be the case in Karnataka. This convention demands a fair representation and a fair share in government and its resources for all and especially the Muslim community which remains unrepresented. The institutions like Lok Ayukta, The State Human Right Commission, and The Minority Commission appear to be on life-support. We demand that these guardians of democracy be restored in word and spirit.
  • This convention sees it with serious concern the growing influence of the corporate world in government policies that have become pro-rich and anti-poor leading to massive displacement of weaker sections and small land-holding farmers. The recent eviction of slum dwellers in Ejipura is a case to point.
