AMU minority issue : Muslim Personal Law Board warns Modi Govt.

Bhatkal: All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) president said the Centre's attempt to remove the minority status of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) was interference in the constitutional rights given to the minorities.

Maulana Syed Muhammed Rabey Hasani Nadwi, president, AIMPLB said in Bhatkal on Saturday that Muslims have made huge sacrifices to keep the university running. "The University is a symbol of those sacrifices and the government cannot take it away,'' he said to media during his visit to Bhatkal.

He was reacting to the Centre's submission in the Supreme Court that the university was not a minority institution.

He also said that if the government fails to restore the minority status, the board will start an agitation which will expose the ruling establishment.

Nadwi said there was a general perception the current dispensation was intolerant towards minorities even though the government claims it is not. "If it's truly tolerant towards minorities, it should give them the rights which have been prescribed in the Constitution. Restoring the minority status of AMU is one of those steps," he added.

Speaking about the Babri Masjid issue and the Hindutva brigade's recent attempts to reignite the Ram Janmabhoomi movement, Nadwi noted the case was in the Apex Court and a stay order was active. "We have full faith in the judiciary,'' he added.
