The colloquium convened by several prominent Muslim organisations to discuss the situation in the wake of the Ghar wapsi row and controversial statements by BJP MPs has been put off. A two-sentence long email from the co-convenor former SP leader Kamal Faroqui on Thursday evening cited “unavoidable circumstances” as reason for cancelling the meet, slated for Sunday. The organisations, including Jamiat Ulema e Hind, Jamat e Islami, Ahle Hadees, Milli Council, All Indian Muslim Personal Law Board, Institute of Objective Studies among others, is learnt to have developed differences over how the colloquium should be set up.
First, Jamat e Islami Hind and Ahle Hadees pulled out, and sources indicate other organisations too developed cold feet. ENS
