AMU minority issue: must read what democracy in islam writes

AMU Act 1981 granted in no unambiguous terms minority status ,clearly stating that the university was established by Muslims of India for their educational,social and cultural advancement,the same definition given in the original AMU Act of 1920, the reality which was rejected by the first education minister Maulana Azad in his Act of 1951, instead he claimed that the university was established by an act of Parliament and thus not by Muslims of India. Who could have known better than him that Muslim University Foundation committee founded by Viqarul Mulk and Mohsinul  Mulk as a tribute to the memory of legendary Sir Syed Ahmad for upgrading MAO College to the status of University, collected a whopping amount of Rs Thirty Lakhs to fulfill the precondition imposed by the British govt for acceding to the demand, which Maulana Azad and company wanted to be sent to Turkish Khilafat for saving the corrupt and inefficient outdated office of the Khalifa. He wrote many articles in his journal AlHilal and Albilagh to misguide innocent Muslim masses that establishment of Muslim  University  is of no use even against Sharia and Islam.
If his senseless argument which was reinforced by the Supreme Court judgment in the case of Aziz Pasha 1967 is accepted then nothing belongs to any Indian,as even the marriage ,a home , a factory everything belongs to the state since all economic or social activities are governed by some Act of Parliament. Prof Anwer Khurshed has advanced a very interesting argument that even India became independent by the Act of British Parliament and all credit should go to it rather than to freedom fighters.
The Allahabad High Court judges could not have rejected Minority status had they not set aside the duly passed 1981 Act by Parliament of India.
For me the judgement posses a graver question than just Minority Character of AMU, it poses a great danger to the future of Secular Democracy, if the supremacy of Parliament is not adhered to and accepted by the Judiciary. Tomorrow in some planted case by right wing forces, the Judges can set aside even the Secular Character of the state or snatching away voting rights of minorities. In a recent spate between the govt and Judiciary about manner of appointment of Supreme Court judges the judiciary rejected  a just proposal of the legislature.
IT IS IN THE INTEREST OF ALL INDIANS IRRESPECTIVE OF CASTE AND CREED THAT LEGISLATURE IS ESTABLISHED AND ACCEPTED AS  SUPREME OVER JUDICIARY. JUDICIARY’S JOB IS TO IMPLEMENT CLEAR CUT DIRECTIVES OF THE PARLIAMENT AND IT HAS NO RIGHT TO SET ASIDE AN ACT PASSED BY PARLIAMENT. SOME ORGANIZATION SHOULD APPROACH  BOTH PARLIAMENT AND JUDICIARY FOR SETTLING THE QUESTION  ONCE FOR ALL.
