·         Every government  School and college will employ at least 2 Urdu  teachers and one Arabic / Persian teacher.

·         At least one person from every Muslim family will be given  a government job.

·         Every government official will be required to pass a Urdu  proficiency examination just as non- Telugu officers  are required to  pass an examination in Telugu  .

·         Congress will have a Muslim  as Chief- Minister for 2 years out of its 5 year term.

·         Congress will not implement  Uniform Civil Code (UCC) if even the Union government enacts it.

·         In Telangana (and in all Congress- ruled States ) Shariat laws only in all its contents including crimes like theft, adultery, murder, blasphemy, apostacy,  fornication  well be implemented. Enough number of Kazis with appropriate levels of proficiency will be appointed to administer Shariat Laws.

·         25% of all elective post in Panchayats, Mandal and Zilla Parishat will be reserved for Muslims

·         Just as  during UPA government  (2004-14) in the Center, there  will be Muslim First Development programs.

·         By the year 2047 the "Stigma" minority should disappear. The minority now shall be equal to or become the majority .

·         The use of the word “love jihad", will be banned. Marriage of girls from majority community that is, Hindu now, to Muslim boys will  not be adversely commented . Such marriages produce composite and secular culture. Therefore they would be encouraged.

·         Minorities would not be required to stand up when Islam -offensive  Vande Mataram is sung.

·         The Arabic inscription in the logo of the Osmania University  (which was replaced by a Sanskrit logo  after Hyderabad’s  integration with India)  will be restored.

·         No Muslim names of towns and places will be replaced by their former Hindu names.

·         The Congress requests the minority to  remember the great regard the Congress has for it by recalling that the great Prime Minister Indira  Gandhi sent her foreign minister, Frakruddin Ali Ahmad to Rabat (Capital of Morocco) in Sept 1969  at the head of a government delegation  seeking admission of secular India to the  Organisation of Islamic Co-operation (OIC).  The OIC did not admit India as  Member as India did not declare itself as an Islamic country.  The Congress would strive to be  acceptable to the  OIC and will renew India’s efforts to be admitted to the OIC.



·          The Congress would like the Minority to remember that Gandhiji the uncrowned king of Congress did not resent Maulana  Mohammed Ali’s repeated  assertion that the  Mahatma was inferior to any fallen  Muslim of bad character.  The incident is recalled to assure the minority that the  Congress wont take  offence  if  Islam’s Muslim say any uncomplimentary and derogatory words about Hindus as Congress is devoted to  tolerance.







Maulana Md.Ali  a leader of the khilafat movement called Mahatma Gandhi  a brother when Indian National Congress became a partner of the khilafat movement in the hope that it would lead to Hindu-Muslim unity in the fight for freedom of India. When khilafat movement came to naught as the Sultan of Turney  was deposed and expelled, speaking at  Aligarh and Ajmere (1924) said:


“However pure Mr. Gandhi’s character may be, he must appear to be from the point of view of religion inferior to any Musalaman, even though he be without character”.


The Statement created a great stir. Many did not believe that Mr. Mohamed Ali, who testified to so much veneration for Mr. Gandhi was capable of entertaining such ungenerous and contemptuous sentiments about him.  When Mr. Mohamed Ali was speaking in a meeting held at Amina Baug  Park in Lucknow, he was asked whether the sentiments attributed to him were true.  Mr. Mohamed Ali without any hesitation or compunction replied.


Yes! According to my religion and creed, I do hold an adulterous and a fallen Musalman to be  better than Mr. Gandhi” .




·         Congress wishes to recall and  reassure  minority that Gandhiji, the mentor  and leader of Congress did not denounce or did not find fault  in 1922 during the Khilafat Movement when the Moslem Moplahs  in Malabar desecrated and destroyed Hindu temples, and forcibly converted Hindus and violated  Hindu women.  Congress’  tolerance is such that " Gandhiji did not  condemn the Moplah’s vandalism and demoniac acts against Hindus. He described the Moplahs as “god-fearing” people and declared that “they are fighting for what they consider as religion and in a manner they consider as religious” . 



·         Congress therefore assures Muslims that their freedom to say and act as per their religion would be respected.

·         Localities in towns and cities  where  the majority population is Muslims  will be declared as   NoGo areas  for property tax collectors and  water and  electricity  meter readers and bill servers.

·         In schools and colleges Muslim girls  will be exempted  from wearing prescribed uniform. They can wear  the hijab  . So will the boys be given freedom to put on the  dress their tradition requires.

·         Finally, Congress requests the minority to remember  that it was a Congress government that lifted the ban on Majlis Ittehadul Muslameen (MIM)  in 1957 and  facilitated  its spread in the whole of India as AIMIM.

·         Lastly but most emphatically in the name of Gandhiji, Nehruji, Indiraji, Rajiv ji, Sonia ji, Rahul ji and Priyanka ji Congress in Telangana pledges its continued patronage to the minority and wishes that  Muslims shed the word minority by 2047 and be a proud and equal partner  with Hindus to rule India.  (1,209 words)
