Initially, the conferences will be held in Kolkata, Kanpur and Hyderabad. In addition to this, Jamiat also decided to fight cases in the Supreme Court pertaining to the Muslim personal laws.

The National executive meeting chaired by Maulana Usman Mansoopuri, National President, Jamiat also expressed their deep concern over prevailing anarchy, violation of human rights, killing of civilians and blinding of youth by pellet guns.

The national executive demanded to constitute an inquiry committee to punish the guilty officials and ban the uses of pellet guns with immediate effect. The national executive exhorted the central government to repeal AFSPA and institute a broad-based inquiry into extrajudicial killings in Kashmir, and open a result-oriented dialogue with the Valley’s stakeholders to discuss the larger political questions. If the Indian state could strike a peace deal with the Naga insurgents, why not Kashmir, which is even more central to India’s national security? The resolution reads.

The 33rd general session of Jamiat is going to be held on November 11, 12 at Ajmer, Rajasthan. The much talked about general session is expected to cover issues such as protection of Muslim personal laws, introduction of Communal Violence Bill, new education policy of the central government and imposing of particular religious practices in the schools and mechanism for promoting national harmony and condemnation of growing impact of terrorism, reservation for the Muslims and social reforms in the light Islamic teachings.
