Delegation of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind led by Maulana Qari Mohammad Usman Mansurpuri, President Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind met Prime Minister Narendra Modi today at his residence in New Delhi.

The delegation discussed with the PM several issues including the current communal situation of the country.

Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind president Maulana Qari Usman and its General secretary Maulana Mahmood Madani while spoke to media after conclusion of the meeting. JUH said that meeting was ‘satisfactory and positive’.

Maulana Mahmood Madani said, “PM heard us passionately and agreed with our concerns.”

He said, “PM also appreciated our stand that the divorce was internal issue of the Muslim community and the community itself should take reformative steps.”

The meeting between prime minister and JUH leaders was mainly focused for ‘opening the door of mutual communication and closer understanding that would lead to further opportunities’.

According to Madani, PM Modi was apprehensive about growing hatred in the name of cow protection and he assured that he would not let this trend prosper.

While notifying Narendra Modi about the cow vigilance and related terrorism, the delegation said, “Your recent reprimand to private groups taking law in their hands and launching murderous attacks for salvaging cows has sent the correct message but much has to be done by law enforcing agencies and the state administration.”

The recent incidents of manslaughter on the pretext of cow slaughter have sent shock waves of terror and fear through Muslim, Dalit and the weakest sections of the society. “We are afraid that the fear and despondence if unchecked could prove highly counterproductive”, said the letter handed out to Modi.

Although JUH seemed ‘happy’ the Modi praised Islam and Sufism, as it said, “We are happy to note that in the context of tarnishing the image of Islam and Muslim globally you made the Indian Muslim communities hold their head high by projecting Indian Muslim community’s ideology of peaceful Islam with reference to India’s tradition of Islamic Sufism and their aversion to extremist ideology.

Muslim community has issues and grievances just like any other community which have to be dealt with as per the exigency but this shouldn’t undermine their aspiration to be equal stake holder.

The delegation requested Narendra Modi to create mechanism for access to him or his appointee for continuing dialogue and closer understanding so that Muslim community is assured of its role and share in the development of our country.
