Press Statement

The Congress Manifesto and the Common Minimum Programme of the UPA followed by repeated assurances by the Prime Minister to the Muslim Community for due participation in governance and fair share in the fruits of progress and development have raised high expectations in the Muslim Community. Since its access to power, the UPA has revised the Prime Minister’s 15 Point Programme for the Welfare of the Minorities. Subsequently, the government has been considering the Report of the High power Sachar Committee on educational, economic and social status of the Muslim Community. The government has also appointed Justice Ranganath Mishra Commission for considering the question of reservation. This Commission has submitted its report and its recommendations are in the public domain and to a large extent supplement and complement the recommendations of the Sachar Committee.

However,none of these recommendations are being implemented adequately or expeditiously with the urgency that they deserve. The Budget for 2006-07 did not reflect the 15 Point Programme or the Sachar recommendations. Except for vague guidelines for implementation of the Programme and some cabinet decisions on a few points of the Sachar Report and the publication of a list of Minority Concentration districts, no concrete measures for the uplift of the Muslims have been spelt out. Consequently, the Muslim Community has not yet experienced so far any increase in access to government jobs or higher education or bank credit or benefit of development schemes.

Now that the UPA government has completed more than 3 years, there is growing disappointment and frustration in the Minorities particularly, the Muslim Community .

          Muslim Organizations of national eminence, after wide consultations reached the considered view that the government has been moving slowly and is reluctant to speed up implementation primarily because of the pressure exerted by the political forces in the country which are not sympathetic to the cause of the Minorities and do not support any change in the status quo. The Sachar Committee has clearly indicated that after 60 years of independence the Muslim Community is almost as backward as the SC/ST and is more backward than even the non-Muslim OBC’s. The anti minority forces have been openly threatening to incite Hindu masses and stirring a ‘Hindu backlash’ if the government were to take any effective positive action to uplift the Muslims.

          The situation, therefore, calls for organized mobilization by the Muslim Community not only to exert pressure on the government but also to secure the support of all secular forces including sympathetic political parties and members of the intelligentsia sympathetic to their legitimate aspirations. Peaceful mobilization alone can place the case of uplift of the Muslim Community on the national agenda in the larger interest of the country as it forms nearly 1/6 of the national population and its backwardness impedes the overall progress of the country.

          With this in view, major Muslim organizations of namely, the Jamiat Ulema Hind, the Jamaat Islami-e-Hind, the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, the All India Milli Council, the Jamiat Ahle Hadith, the Movement for Emplowerment of Muslim Indians, All India Momin Conference, All India Shia Conference and the All India Muslim Educational Society and the Imarat-e-sharia, Bihar formed the Joint Committee of Muslim Organizations for Empowerment , with Mr. Syed Hamid, ex-Vice Chancellor, AMU, as the Patron. It may be added that subsequent to its formation, the All India Qaumi Tanzim, Student Islamic Organization and the Popular Front of India apart from several state level organizations have joined the JCMOE

The JCMOE defined its overall objective as empowerment of the Muslim Community through recognition as a Backward Class with a separate sub-quota for reservation in public employment, higher education, fruits of development schemes and flow of bank credit and the creation of a Muslim Sub-Plan. The JCMOE formulated a Charter of Demands (attached) and has established both a National Advisory Committee consisting of the patron and the heads of associated organizations and a National Organizing Committee.

          The various associated organizations and their state and district units jointly and severally,have been organizing public meetings in various places and submitting memoranda based on the Charter of Demands to the state governments and the Central government.The JCMOE has also been meeting the leaders of various political parties and the members of the government to plead the Muslim case.

          The immediate demand of the Community is that there should be in depth discussion on the situation of the Muslim Community in the Parliament. In order to awaken the conscience of the nation as well as to build a national consensus and for urgent and effective line of action to raise the educational and economic status of the Community.

          The National Advisory Committee assisted by the National Organizing Committee held a meeting on 27 July, 2007, reviewed the progress of the mobilization campaign and decided to organize a ‘token dharna’ by the leaders of member organizations at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, on 14 August, 2007 and submission of memoranda to the Prime Minister, the Speaker of the Lok Sabha and Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.

It was also decided to appeal to the Imams of Masjids in the country to relate their Khutbas on successive Fridays to the Charter of Demands.

          It was also decided that in addition to the meetings at the district level, the states JCMOE’s shall hold meetings public meeting in the state capitals of all 13 states of Muslim concentration during the period 10 August to 14 September, 2007.

          It has also decided to authorize the states JCMOE’s to organize Bandhs by the Muslim Community on suitable dates.

It was also decided that a Muslim Rally shall be organized in New Delhi with the participation of contingents from all over the country in the second week of September.
