    The protest by several Muslim organisations at
    Mumbai’s Azad Maidan against the recent riots in
    Assam and so-called attacks on Muslims in
    Myanmar turned violent on Saturday.
    The protesters set several vehicles on fire,
    including an OB (Outside Broadcast) van of three
    private news channels. Police had to fire and
    resort to lathi-charge to disperse the violent crowd
    of protesters.
    The situation is currently under control, said IG
    Law and Order, Mumbai.
    The protests was led by Raza Academy, an
    organisation working to promote Islamic culture,
    were supported by other organisations like Sunni
    Jamaitul Ulma and Jamate Raza-e-Mustafa.
    Hundreds of members and activists of these
    organizations, sporting black badges, earlier
    converged at the Azad Maidan and expressed
    concern over the massacre of the Muslim
    community.
    Maulana Syed Moinuddin Ashraf, president of
    Jamia Qadriya Ashrafiya, has asked the central and
    state governments to interfere.
    Maulana, who is also known as Moin Miyan said
    “With regards to the massacre in Myanmar, we
    understand it is an external problem and that
    certainly should be taken care of, but what is
    happening in Assam reflects on the state of affairs
    of the country”.
    “It is the responsibility of the Congress
    government to protect the Muslims, and for that
    matter each and every citizen,” he added.
    Raza Academy Chairman Saeed Noorie said that “A
    large number of Muslims have been rendered
    homeless and are now living in camps”.
    Noorie said they have written to the government of
    Myanmar, the United Nations, the International
    Human Rights Organization, Organization of
    Islamic Countries, President Pranab Mukherjee
    and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to highlight
    the massacre of Muslims in Myanmar

    friends, I was deliberately keeping silent on the statement of Asaduddin Owaisi, a Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad and the president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) in Lok Sabha a few days ago that sparked off communal controversy…today a friend mailed and wanted to know why I am quiet on the issue…honestly, I was reading the speech rendered by him in Lok Sabha especially after the special phone-in and studio live shows on television news channels…I was surprised to hear on a Hindi News Channel ‘Assam pe phir ekbar firkaparast tatvon ka kahar’ (yet again the communal forces attack Assam)…two things that I wanted to tell the Editor-in-Chief of this channel and likes…reporting should not have the ingredients that instigate the masses and secondly I did not understand why Asaduddin Owaisi’s statement were being continuously played as the words were enough to instigate communal forces…now on to Asaduddin Owaisi’s remarks…after going through the speech in details I feel his grievance was on calling Muslims residing in Assam as illegal migrants from Bangladesh…I accept this this was a wrong as entire Muslim population residing in Assam can not be illegal migrants…however, I did not understand his comments on a popular English satellite news channel ‘are you scared of the growing Muslim population’ (what was he hinting at by saying ‘scared’…I felt he was using his Assam visit as a political-religious platform and a well orchestrated election campaigning speech…his deliberately mixing the plight of hapless Muslims across the violence stricken Assam was a deliberate instigation…this entire issue being used as a poll perspective…if leaders like Owaisi and likes instead of trying to pacify the situation prefer to instigate the masses by taking refuge in the age old religion card then indeed the situation is volatile…

    there are various issues which led to the Assam tragedy and many things will have to be taken into account if such violence are to be stopped but taking refuge into communal cards is certainly not a solution…

    I fail to understand and want to ask communal factions irrespective of religion preferences, was the partition of India which decided both the countries enough to realize the negativity of pseudo religious cult…can we not say no to communal factions…

    Dear Friends,
    Pl watch the debate which was deliberately made controversial and I have listened to the debate ten times and I feel that Janab Asaduddin Owaisi has not said anything out of context and wrong. What he said that, it is the natural process if the justice is denied or delayed and he meant that the occurances of incidents like Babri Masjid, Godhra etc should be avoided in the interest of the nation which otherwise would encourage the feeling of helplessness and despair among the youth….

    Asaduddin Owaisi, a Lok Sabha MP from INDIA (Hyderabad) and the president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), has visited Assam twice in the last two weeks.The people in and around Kokrajhar are living in an abject situation. And there is no one to look after them. In Jugirmahal High School in Dhubri area in Bilasipara, I saw 6,500 people living in a miserable condition. The building can only support 300-400 people, but I saw such a huge crowd there.

    The government nurse there only had 10 bottles of cough syrup and a few medicines – just imagine! For a large number of people, only 10 bottles?

    Similarly, in Kokrajhar, in Jamanganga High School, I saw 7726 people. Out of these, there were 412 baby boys and 366 baby girls. And just by looking at them, I figured out that all these people are 100 per cent sick. Even such small children. It was too much for me, I also have a family here, and young children. I just couldn’t look at them.

    These people are suffering from various ailments. There is no baby food, they are suffering from diarrhea, their mothers are worried because they have been uprooted from their native places. They don’t even have clothes apart from those which they could gather when they ran away from their places.

    There is a great human tragedy which we are witnessing in Assam. I visited nine relief camps, and so pathetic are the living conditions there that even I fell sick with a cough. And I just spent 2-3 hours in each camp.

    This was my second visit, the first one was when the PM visited Assam. When I went there with him and saw the ground situation with my own eyes, I thought about doing something about this. So when I came back I had discussions with my partymen and we decided to do something for them.

    I went with a team of doctors – basically 12 specialists including pediatricians – and medicines worth Rs. 20 lakh. During my second visit, I saw that the situation has deteriorated….

I thought the Partition of India was clear.

To all those, to whom their Indian-Muslim politico-religious identity was important will go to Pakistan. In India, Indian identity will prevail.

Zero Muslim politico-religious identity.

In India, total freedom for Muslim worship, prayer, dressing, social customs. etc. But, Zero Muslim politico-religious identity was the deal.

Why is Muslim leadership allowed to promote politico-religious identity?

    First –

    If you think that these armies, the police or the judiciary is for our benefit, you are mistaken. That is the way Desert Bloc model works. Present one logic, subvert the very rationale.

    The polity sustains these weaponized militias for their own safety. So, why should any significant member of the polity be afraid?

    Second

    Every polity and nation has red-lines. In India it must be communalization of polity.

    I think, as a Deobandi leader asserted sometime back, no other country offers Muslims the personal freedom that India does.

    Therefore the diffidence of post-colonial India, due to the communalization of the country in the last 75-100 years of the British Raj is now no longer raison d’etre.

    The net effect is the Muslim social body gets a bad name – and the organizers of such events, go scot-free.
