The Students’ Islamic Organisation Monday said the Centre’s change in position on Jamia Millia Islamia’s (JMI) minority status amounted to “denial of historical facts”.  The Indian Express had Monday reported that the Centre has decided to withdraw its earlier stand in the Delhi HC on JMI’s minority status, and that the HRD Ministry will tell the court that JMI was never intended to be a minority institution.

In a statement, Nahas Mala, president, SIO, said, “The National Council for Minority Educational Institutions has adjudicated and held that Jamia was founded by Muslims for the benefit of Muslims and it never lost its identity as a Muslim minority educational institution.”

      Muslims in a India got more freedom and rights than what even a Muslim country gives to them. In a typical Muslim country it is more of a dictatorial regime where the citizen just have to be satisfied what is being given but in India it is the reverse - Muslims get more rights more say than others. Even one Indian robotic PM said Muslims got first right to resources! For what? For s c r e w i n g others and for working as vote banks for some political parties?

        Muslims in India have been getting more rights than they have ever worked for! This is not equal treatment of all citizen which is the basic requirement of a civil society! You can not give more rights which they then use to fight against you!

          Everything Islam does is more than 95 political. No Govt. should provide support to anythinh that is pooitical by nature and get trapped. First decide Islam is political or not and take it from there! Almost everything islamic is political (very little spiritual) but not everything political is Islamic. Why on earth other political en its by default be supporting another political en y whose ideology is not compatible with it? Does not make sense! It's the hijacking of democracy and cheating the people at large by selling their mandate to some quarters which they may not support!

            Where are those pseudo muslims who kept peddling the lies that Modi believed in sabka vikas. The BJP sangh parivar and Modi aint going to change. They want to eliminate any ins ution that can help pulling muslims out of poverty. First it was Aligarh university, now its Jamia. Wake up before its too late.
