  1. Are these people representative of the Indian Muslim population?? shabana azmi, javed akhtar??

    Rahul Gandhi should meet the AIMPLB members–if he is serious indeed!

    Muslims should support Rajiv Gandhi only after he gives atleast following written assurances:
    1. Give Muslims reservation of 15% (according to population ratio) in Education, higher education, govt jobs and public sector—in order to undo the neglect of the patriotic Indian Muslim community as proven statistically by Justice Sachar findings.
    2. Preserving Muslim Personal Law Board and its rights.
    3.Supporting Arvind Kejriwal in Delhi and adopting his anti-corruption techniques and progress in education, health and services all over the nation.
    4.Prosecute rioteers, mob-lynchers and humanity-haters.
    5.Provide freedom to choose, profess and practise religion without discrimination.
    Muslims should vote alongwith Dalits to bring a coalition government everywhere–not give anyone complete majority to any single party.

  2. Those who are muslim haters and Islam haters in the midst of muslims are dubbed “Muslim Intellectuals” by Congress and BJP RSS alike. Present day muslims can no longer be fooled with such foolish moves. Such moves only become counter productive. Our representative body is All India Muslim Personal Law Board. We shall follow them.

      • A poor 10 to 14 year kid in Madrassa has the whole holy Quraan memorized by heart—total of 800 pages book, and is brought up in totally clean and simple humble spiritual environment.
        Every kid there is a living miracle of Almighty God.
        Why are you jealous of these humble children?
        You worldly greedy intellectuals are poles apart from a spiritual madrassa student !

  3. I think it is a wasteful exercise in politics these kind of meetings with people who have connect with ground reality is an eyewash. These are commercial people except for few. The Congress party at least now come out like the bjp and play politics. We all know how much the Congress has gone for the Muslims post to ndependence, these characters are not our torch bearers so please interact, if you are serious,with a cross section of the community and see the results. People are more enlightened no more vote banks please.

  4. Mr Rahul please abandon these type of politics now come out openly like the other party. The intellectuals are bunch of jokers who perform on payment they can never be our representatives of course they could be your party’s prospective Rajiya Sabha MPs😀😀

  5. Muslims admin this country more than anybody and you know very well what has happened,happening and going to happen(prediction).
    I expect Muslims to represent by their own at their best.
    Definitely Rahul Gandhi has good vision for this country.but incase of India output is same and input changes from party to party and i guess everyone know the reason.
