The Menace of  AIMIM

Dr T.H.Chowdary*


During the  Nizam’s rule there was the Majlis Ittehad-ul- Muslameen (MIM)  which  spawned  the notorious  Razakars under the   leadership of the  fascist Kasim Razvi . In June 1947 the  MIM  prevailed upon the Nizam to declare Hyderabad’s independence  and not accede to India ( or
Pakistan) . Thanks to  Sardar  Patel’s determination  and decisive Police Action ( Sept 13-17, 1948) the danger of the emergence of an Islamic state in the heart of India was nipped in the bud.


2. After the death of Sardar Patel, within 10 years  of the Police  Action in Sept 1948,  the MIM   was  revived  by  the Razakarist Oweisis.  This was with the patronage of the Congress which  was wanting to build  Muslims  into a  captive vote bank.  The same MIM has been revitalized to become the All India Majlis  Ithehad-ul Muslameen (AIMIM) under the notorious Oweisi brothers, the elder being an MP and the younger one is the Leader of the Opposition in the  Telangana  State Legislative  Assembly. The AIMIM, not Congress is the second largest party in Telangana Assembly.  The AIMIM under the elder  Oweisi, the   MP   has been extending  its activities all over India to  emerge as   the Muslim League of pre-1947. The  AIMIM has been  successfully extending   its activities  to other  parts of  India especially Maharashtra’s former Berar area centered around Aurangabad; Bihar, Bengal , UP and Karnataka .  Along with  the   AIMIM,  a number  of other  Islamist  political parties have also emerged    –    the revived  Indian Union Muslim League  (IUML) operating in Kerala,  the   all India    United Democratic  Front of  (AIUDF) of Maulana Azmal Badruddin  in Assam; the Popular Front of  India operating in Karnataka, Kerala, Tamilnadu, Delhi  and  UP.



3. That the  AIMIM is achieving notable   following   is now proved in the recent  elections to the Bihar’s State Legislative Assembly. The AIMIM  won  5 MLA seats. It put up 20 candidates. These five MLAs had been brought to  Hyderabad on 11th of Nov  and  feted  and a resolve was made that  all Muslims in India will be brought  under one umbrella  and establish  the “minority” force  as a challenge to the Indian Union.  They are  furiously trying to get the Dalits into their fold  - an effort  that could be traced to the 1920s itself.  In that period, in  the Nizam’s territory the Deendar and the MIM  converted many Dalits into  Islam  and one of the Dalits  was made a minister  in the Razakar- sponsored cabinet  of the Nizam.  Now their  talk is “minorities”(i.e Muslims) ,   SCs and STs  to form  a formidable political force in the country to seize power.


4. The Election Commission of India requires that all  political parties   intending   to   compete in  elections must swear their  allegiance to  secularism  . The  AIMIM and IUMLs names themselves  are  expressive of the religious community they are  composed of;  namely Muslim.  It is for consideration whether the  IUML and  the AIMIM  should  be de-recognized and banned as they are  publicly professing to be the parties of people of  a particular religion.


5. One  grievous situation is that the regional parties   are  promoting the Islamist parties in their pursuit  for power  by getting  Muslim votes. There is  in fact   competition between   almost all parties expecting the  BJP  to support Muslims demands like governments paying Imams and  Muezzins and construct Urdu  Ghars and Shadi Khanas, Haj Houses  and carve Muslim majority areas as separate districts. This bodes ill for the unity and integrity of India.


6. It is well to recall that   one Prof. Amar Abbas had   as long ago  as in a Dec 2000 issue of the Marxist journal, Economic and Political Weekly  argued for one more division of India  to create Mugahlistna comprising the north-west part of Assam;  northern part of  Bengal; northern  territories  in Bihar , UP and Punjab so that the Mugahlistan is  continuous with  the Islamist state of  Pakistan and    Bangladesh.  It would obviously be a client state of China just  as Pakistan has already become.  A nationalist party like the BJP and its  idealogues must  take notice of the  fast  growing  Islamist  political  forces and furious  growth in Muslim population which has already resulted in the  Muslim population going up from 9.8% in 1951 to over 16% now and  the political patronage to   Muslims resulting in creation of Muslim majority districts (Malappuram  in Kerala and Mewat in Haryana) and another 80 districts specially endowed with Muslim First development programs by the  UPA government during 2004-‘14. 


7. One immediate step that could be easily taken  for arresting  the growth of Muslim population  as well as that of the  rest is to make all welfare schemes   inapplicable to all persons of any family  irrespective of religion, which has  more than two children. Another step is to make polygamy (like  untouchability) criminal,  The Islamist  separatism and  Muslimification of India,  tukda by tukda (part by part)  should be  checked now.

  "If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
