IMO News Service

In a well attended seminar organized by The Sunday Indian (Urdu), a leading fortnightly News Magazine of Planman Media, in New Delhi on 10th December, the Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Maken pointed that security, identity and power sharing are the key issues related Muslims. He commented that if question is raised about these issues then Muslims could feel integrated in the country and acclaimed that, in spite of this erroneous tendency, Muslims are living with other communities in a peaceful manner. The seminar was organized on the theme ‘Indian Muslims: Integrated or Alienated’ coinciding with occasion of release of findings of a survey conducted by the media group through the country for assessing the state of alienation of the country. Other speakers of the seminar were noted journalist Zafar Agha, Arindam Chowdhary, MP Shahid Siddiqui, MP Mohammad Adib, former Chairman of Delhi Minority Commission Kamal Farooqi, etc.

The survey was conducted between November 2 to November 23, 2010 in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Srinagar, Kolkata, Guwahati Lucknow, Patna, Bhopal, Chennai, Bangalore and covered people from all major universities, colleges and madrasas including DU, Jamia Millia Islamia, AMU, Osmania University, Darul Uloom Deoband, Nadwa and Jamia Al-Falah. The age of the respondents ranged between 18-40 years. The survey comes out with certain facts regarding the state of the Muslim community. It has been found that only 65.5 per cent Muslims feel safe in the country whereas as almost half members of the community (49.7%) observe that Muslims are being discriminated in walks of life. The majority of the respondents thinks that communal hatred against the community is on the rise.

The Sunday Indian says, “In a comprehensive nationwide survey, TSI-CVoter maps a community in flux. Muslims constitute 13.4 per cent of the world's second most populous nation. This opinion poll is an attempt to grasp their hopes, aspirations and worries on a wide range of issues. This survey was conducted across three segments of Muslims - students of minority institutions, students of madrasas and the rest of the community.”

  1. Kya tali ek haath se bajti hai?? Why not do simultaneosly study of other communities like parsies, Sikhs, jains, Jews, christians who are really in minority and most of these communities are less then 1 % of population. and why only of Muslims who are second largest majority in India.When they have been given opportunity to be President, Governor , Chiefministers. etc etc and still feel alinated then what shud jains,parises,Jews etc feel who have never been given such opportunity. It is importnat to discuss the such feeling with psychologists? They will have awnswer for same. Why Lalit and his folks say such thing is because of muslims vote bank.
    Muslims are backward because they produce more children then they can educate them/ make them self sufficient/ self dependant. Muslims are dreaded by Hindus because many of them remeber Moguls and their atrocities, demolisen by guns Budha statues even in 21 st century,and that they give maximum criminals. Have u / or Sunday Indian( Urdu) has done study of percentage of criminals from various communities,social workers in human / charitable activitis from various comm,jehadis from various comm vis a vis their population,most 1000 heinous crime by which comm, who are the biggest smuugglers, biggest, educationins, hospital owners, etc etc. This will give u better picture of who is up to what. Most minority comm r haeded by Muslims ( who r 2nd largest majority) and not others yes the corruption is highest and real benefit is not reaching desrving muslims and not even 1 % to other minorities.An RTI application in Mumbai revealed 100 funds for minorities have gone to only Muslims and not even a paisa to other minorities.
    I got removed 10 hawkers of Marathi ( even being in maharashtra), UP community from my place at Vakola but cant dare to even complain against a overnight noisy nuisance, badly smelling chinieses fast food joint. Why?? IMagine which comm I am and most of us are fearing?? The true solution is family planning,encouraging intercast/ interfaith marriages,giving education a priority , leaders not speaking against each other but doing and saying which will increase brotherhood, not attcking each other inspite of worst provocation but taking matter to Mohalla commitee which should solve the issue amicably,law and order machinary should not let voilence start and be rapid in action,police should use other methods like plastic bullets then firing at mob ( as then they are called Shahid and their family / friends further take law in to hand? etc etc..Alok
