Mumbai: Muslim candidates have won the elections at twelve places in Maharashtra and five constituencies in Haryana when the results were announced after counting of the votes yesterday.


While the Congress-led ruling alliance has regained power in Maharashtra, it struggles for numbers in Haryana despite emerging as a single largest party.


Elections for 288 seats in Maharashtra and 90 assembly constituencies in Haryana were held on October 13, 2009. The counting of votes were done yesterday.


11 Muslim MLAs in Maharashtra

Relying on the promises made by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other Congress leaders, Muslim leaders in Maharashtra were demanding for 35-38 seats in the state. The Congress, however, fielded just 12 Muslim candidates whereas its alliance partner Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) had given tickets to just 04 Muslim candidates.


05 Muslim candidates out of the 12 who fought on Congress tickets won the elections. Whereas, out of 04 NCP candidates 02 have able to register the victory.


The other 05 assembly constituencies in Maharashtra where Muslim candidates have won the elections include Shivajinagar in Mumbai and Bhiwandi (East). From these two constituencies, Samajwadi Party (SP) Maharashtra President Abu Asim Azmi has won the elections.


Out of the 05 Muslim Congress MLAs four - Arif Naseem KHan, Baba Siddiquee, Ameen Patel and Aslam Shaikh - have won from various constituencies in Mumbai. The fifth Congress MLA is Ab Sattar who has won the election from Sillud. Arif Naseem Khan was Minister of State for Home in the erstwhile government.


AICMEU adds...

1.  Muslims got just 3.82 % seats in Maharshtra Assembly Election 2009 as the Muslims have won only 11 seats in 288 constituencies.

2. Among Muslim Winners 5 are from INC, 3 from SP, 2 from NCP and one from Jan Surajya Shakti while no one is independent.

3. Winning Muslims have defeated

a. Shivsena and BJP at  three constituencies each,

b. INC and independent in two constituencies each, while

c. MNS at one constituency.

4. Interestingly at two constituencies namely Malegaon Central and Mankhurd Shivaji Nagar Muslim candidates defeated Muslims.

5. Other Muslim candidates who were expected to win but loose this election are Mr. Anees Ahmad (Minister in last Government) and Mr. Bashir Moosa Patel.

The two NCP Muslim MLAs are Nawab Malik and Hasan Mushrif from Kagal. While Nawab Malik won from Anushakti Nagar in Mumbai, Hasan Mushrif won from Kagal. Nawab Mailk and Hasan Mushrif both were ministers in the previous government.


The other two Muslim candidates wh made their way to the 288-member Maharashtra Legislative Assembly are Mufti Mohd. Ismail and Rasheed Tahir Momin.


Mufti Mohd. Isamil - a cleric at a local Jama Masjid, president of Jamiatul Ulema Malegaon and member of the Governing Body of Madrasa Deoband has won the election from Malegaon (central) assembly constituency on Jan Sauraj Shakti party ticket. By winning the election, Mufti Ismail has become the first recognised Muslim Aalim and serving Imam to enter the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. Earlier, Maulana Ziauddin Bukhari had also won the Assembly elections in Maharashtra.


Rasheed Tahir Momin got elected from Bhowandi (West). He fought the election on Samajwadi Party (SP) ticket after Congress refused to give him the ticket.


The most prominent loser is Haji Anees Ahmed - Minister of Minority Affairs in the previous government. He contested the election from his home town Nagpur. But in a shocking turn of event, lost the seat to BJP's Sudhakar Deshmukh.


Other Muslim leaders who lost the election include Sayyad Ahmed from Mumbai, Salim Patel from Jalgaon and Ab Qadir from Aurangabad.


Haryana to have 05 Muslim MLAs

In a house of 90 MLAs, Haryana assembly will have a total of 05 Muslim MLAs. Though Congress has emerged as the single largest party in the October 13 elections, it has fallen short of the clear majority. Of the total 90 seats in Haryana Assembly, Congress has won 40 seats.


The earlier assembly had just 03 Muslim MLAs.


Jaleeb Khan who contested from Hathin after Congress denied him a ticket as an independent, defeated the official Congress candidate by a margin of more then 6000 votes.


The Jagadhri constituency witnessed a triangular contest among sitting Congress MLA Subhash Chand, former minister Akram Khan of the BSP and former MLA Kanwar Pal of the BJP. Akram Khan defeated Subhash Chand by a margin of more than 4000 votes.

Naseem Khan and Mohammed Ilyas contesting on INLD tickets won comfortably from Ferozepur Jhirka and Punahana respectively.


District Congress president of Mewat, Aftab Ahmed defeated nearest rival Sanjay of BJP by margin of 16904 votes.
