While debate continues on whether the threat to a particular religion and its adherents is real or perceived, All India Muslim Personal Law Board has taken a step ahead through a grand rally at Amroha in UP titled “Deen o Dastoor Bachao” rally, translated in English as “Save the religion and constitution” rally. Needless to say, leading clerics from across India as well as secularists and sympathisers from other communities will be expressing their ire at the radical elements who, they perceive, are bent on changing the character of constitution, through a silent patronage of those who have come to power.
Venue will be Eidgah maidan in Amroha, a little distance away from the Capital, in the heart of Western Uttar Pradesh. And the date will be 10th of December, 2015. A huge gathering will be addressed by the prominent Muslim leaders like Hazrat Maulana Rabe Hasan Nadvi, Maulana Mohd. Wali Rahmani, Dr. Kalbe Sadiq, Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan Sahab and other prominent Muslim leaders. The gathering would also be addressed by prominent members of other communities like Christian, Sikh, Buddhist, Lingayat and Dalit leaders.
Says Kamal Faruqi, the Convenor of the grand event at Amroha: “It is going to be a grand rally. We are expecting a few lakh people from Amroha and neighbourhood to attend. Leading Muslim clerics are uniting to give strength to their voice against a threat that is visible to all. Not just the Muslim clerics, prominent personalities from various other marginalized communities and other prominent individuals who too perceive the ramifications and grave consequences of where the nation is being led by some self-seeking rightist individuals who are even bent on changing the character of the constitution, will address the gathering.
Aziz Haider of RNI News, which is contributing to the cause by handling logistics related to media and communication for the rally, is of opinion that it is time now for all those who wish for a stronger and united India in future to negate these divisionary forces and this rally is just the beginning of efforts to create awareness among the largely simple and peace loving citizens of India.
The grand rally at Eidgah Maidan on 10th December will be preceded by executive committee meeting of All India Muslim Personal Law Board at Mesco Public School Dhanaura Road on 9th morning. A press conference is scheduled to be held at 4 p.m. after the executive committee meeting.
