A charter of demands unveiled during the World Sufi Forum organised by the All India Ulama and Mashaikh Board (AIUMB) has asked the government to alleviate the “sense of fear” among Muslims over riots and urged PM Narendra Modi to rectify “historical blunders” in India that brought in extremist ideologies.

“There is a sense of fear among Muslims due to riots. The government should alleviate this fear and Union Home Ministry should spell out what steps have been taken with regard to all small or big communal incidents and riots that have taken place so far in different parts of the country,” the AIUMB said in the 25-point charter, which was released on the concluding day of the event at a packed Ramlila Maidan Sunday.

Speaking at the venue, AIUMB founder president Syed Muhammad Ashraf said: “We are hopeful that the government will pay heed to our requests and keep in mind the interests of Indian Muslims…. Over the last few decades, there have been concerted efforts to weaken Sufism in India and replace it with an extremist and radical ideology. This recent phenomenon is dangerous not just for the Muslim community, but also for the country itself. We now request our honourable Prime Minister to rectify these historical blunders and kindly meet the demands of millions of Sufi followers in India.”

The charter called for establishing a central Sufi centre in Delhi and in all other capital cities. It also demanded establishment of a Khwaja Garib Nawaz University, creation of “Sufi Corridors”, a review of the Waqf Amendment Bill and a decision to set up a national corporation for development of Waqf properties.

    Hindus are the victims of all bs of Islam for many centuries. Radical like the ISIS are operating in India under different kinds of cover to wipe out the Hindus. All Muslim leaders have the mind of Jinnah, Aga Khans, Iqbal and major rich Muslim countries to Islamize the entire non-Muslim states in South and South East Asia and Europe and Americas; this dangerous virus of Islam is threatening the entire democratic free world.

        India should fund sufi establishments and Sufi learning in India and across the world to counter wahabism propagated by Saudis.

          Brahmin COWards are provoking Muslims into violence. This is happening all over the country. The criminal cowardly idea behind it is to create war between Muslims and Hindus while the BRAHMIN BSTRDS SIT BACK RELAXED AND WATCH HINDUS AND MUSLIMS KILL AND BURN EACH OTHERS. INDO-ARYAN BARBARYANS HAVE MACRED PEOPLE USING SIMILAR STRATEGY ALL THROUGH THEIR HISTORY. BRAHMINS ARE CREATING A ARTIFICIAL HATRED BETWEEN HINDUS AND ALL OTHER RELIGIONS. THEY ARE USING ALL THE RESOURCES INCLUDING RAW (bRAWmin) AND IB(Iyer Bureau) TO ACHIEVE THAT. BRAHMINS HAVE BEEN APPOINTED IN ALL KEY POSITIONS INCLUDING DEFENSE AND POLICE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY TO CULL ANY REBELLION. NOTHING HAPPENS WITHOUT MODI's KNOWLEDGE. IT IS LIKE THE ENTIRE DEABLE BRAHMIN COMMUNITY TURNING AGAINST NATION. BRAHMINS ARE THE TRUE ANTI-NATIONALS, FOR SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROYING INDIGENOUS CULTURE AND INDIGENOUS INTELLECT AND THEY DON'T BELONG TO HINDUISM EVEN!
