Libya finds echo at Ramlila ground

Monday August 22, 2011 05:54:47 PM, Ziaulla Namani

Mumbai: Though there are known differences among the Muslim leaders, activists and organisations on extending support to Anna Hazare's crusade against corruption because of the allegations that the movement is backed by BJP and RSS, the Muslim community and organisations as such are coming strongly in favour of the campaign.


The political wing of Jamaat-e-Islami, Welfare Party of India (WPI) supported a strong Lokpal for curbing the corruption.


"This is a fact that the Lokpal bill presented by the UPA government is toothless. It has to be strong and Anna's model may be adopted," said spokesperson, WPI, SQR Ilyas.


Darul Uloom Islamic educational institution calls Hazare’s movement non-political which is required for the national interest.


Maulana Abul Qasim Banarasi, Vice-Chancellor, Darul Uloom at Deoband said, “A concrete action against corruption is earnestly needed. We have no business with politics. We cannot participate in the movement nor can we stage protest, but we do support Anna’s movement.”


Moulana Mohammed Islam Qasimi, a member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board, said it is the duty of every Indian to support the movement of Anna Hazare.


Muslim Women's Personal Law Board supports Anna as well.


The chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Mirwaiz Omar Farooq, has extended his support to Anna Hazare.


Meanwhile, Hazare’s anti-corruption campaign also received support from Muslims in Madhya Pradesh. More than 40 ‘Imams’ are planning to visit Delhi to extend support to Hazare.
