The JIH Central Advisory Council pointed out towards the decline of democratic values in a country, highlighting issues such as the undermining of democratic institutions’ autonomy and suppression of dissent. Economic disparities, including wealth concentration and rising inflation and unemployment, contribute to dissatisfaction, particularly among youth and farmers. It urged active participation in elections to prioritize the country’s welfare. It emphasized the need for fair electoral practices, condemning hate speeches and divisive narratives. The Election Commission of India was called upon to ensure justice, fairness, and adherence to democratic principles during elections.

The Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Central Advisory Council strongly condemned the attacks and demanded an end to Western support for Israel.

Furthermore, the JIH Central Advisory Council urged the Indian government to utilize its influence to help resolve the conflict and facilitate aid from Indian citizens to Palestinians.
