Aligarh : The Congress tried its best but failed in the Lok Sabha 2014 elections due to lack of state and local level leaders. It has also received set back as it failed to implement several recommendations of the Sachar Committee on one hand and established no monitoring system of the schemes launched on the other hand said Prof. Razaullah Khan Member Aligarh Muslim University Court while chairing a “Political Scenario Analysis” meeting of the Forum for Muslim Studies & Analysis (FMSA) Aligarh held at Media Centre Aligarh. He said, ” Narendra Modi has very brilliantly achieved what any politician can desire. Now it seems that he will honestly try to fill up the gulf between Muslims and the BJP as it is very necessary for his long term rule.
Placing some data on the developments in Muslim concentrated areas of Gujarat, Jasim Mohammad Secretary of FMSA said, ” As Prime Minister of the country, we all should extent good wishes and respect to Narendra Modi. We may have differences which we had with Congress also but we will not lag behind in contributing in nation building. Jasim Mohammad said that India is a secular country and Modi cannot change the Constitution over night. He said that the way in which Modi paid respect to parliament after entering in it elaborates much which cannot meet eyes. Whole nation beyond the religious and regional boundaries has cheered his emotional speech in the parliament. Narendra Modi has also taken a historic decision to invite hands of SAARC nations which indicate that he is serious to develop friendly relations with neighbouring countries. He said that we have great hopes from him and are sure that he will deliver justice.”
N. Jamal Ansari said that Muslims should not fear or draw any negative conclusions. He recalled that during Vajpayee regime not only internal peace was achieved but relations with neighbouring countries had also improved. He said that Modi himself has said many times that he want cooperation of all people and we must not doubt on his intentions.
Dr. Fatima Zehra said that the history show us that when ever such political changes have taken place in any country, the new regime has taken care of its minorities in a better way. He pointed out that with changing times and political scenes we should also change otherwise we will remain lagging behind.
Prof. Humayun Murad Member AMU Court said ” Political changes do take place and no doubt the these changes greatly affect the weaker and minority sections but we must adopt wait and watch policy before commenting anything. ”
In the last, FMSA passed unanimously a resolution welcoming the new government . In another resolution FMSA has hoped that minority welfare schemes launched by UPA government will not be withdrawn instead some more schemes will be launched to uplift Muslim masses.
Apart of large number of teachers, scholars and intellectuals notably Dr. G. F. Sabri, Iqbal Saifi, Dilshad Quraishi, Dr. Aftab Alam, and Dr. Daulat Ram were also present in the meeting.
