Over Rs 12,000 crore (US$ 3 bn) fund for Muslim minority to spread Islamic education in the works, Indian govt confirms.
Upananda Brahmachari | HE Media Bureau | Guwahati | Sun Dec 29, 2013:: While apex court severally gives cautions to the govts not to opt any favouritism on religious basis in case of extending governmental help to any individual or section, the Central govt in India run by Congress party and some of the state govts are nullifying the court orders and the spirit of so-called ‘secularism’ inserted in the preamble of Indian constitution by Congress itself.
This time a huge fund of Rs 12,000-18,000 (3 billion US $) are being ready by central govt to boost up the Education of the Muslim minorities (touching 20% of total population of India) mainly through Madrasas, Islamic Colleges, Universities, Islamic Seminaries, Islamic Education Foundations, NGOs – all set to establish a Islamic State in India in the same way of Aligarh and Deoband Movement.
The other constitutional minorities like Sikh (1.9%) Buddhists (0.8%), Jains (0.5%), Parsis (negligible) are striving to maintain their educational institutions but not getting any privilege as such as they are not communal like Muslims and do not posses any ‘Vote Bank’ rather.
The Centre on Sunday said it will soon announce a special fund to the tune of US$ 3 billion for upliftment of the Muslim people by providing infrastructure, mainly for education.
“We need infrastructure. Indian Muslims need education and for that we need infrastructure. Currently we lack in infrastructure,” Union Minister for Minority Affairs K Rahman Khan said in Guwahati in an Islamic Education Convention organised by three fundamental organisations viz. American Federation of Muslims of Indian Origin (AFMI), Ajmal Foundation and Markazul Ma’arif.
Now, it is evident that the Congress party plans to strengthen fundamental school of education with a sectarian outlook. They are mulling a huge US$ 3 billion (Rs.15,000-18,000 Crore) fund to give Islamic education to Indian Muslims in an appeasing mode to get blessed with Muslim vote bank.
The notorious Communal MP (Member of Parliament) of Dhubri, Assam, Md Badruddin Ajmal who is paving Assam as Islamic state in north-east were seen very intimately in the convention on Sunday with the central minister for minority affairs maintaining the formula, ” Birds of green (read Islamic) colour folk together”. Ajmal is the key of these organisations like Ajmal Foundation and Markazul Ma’arif.
“We are working on to create a fund of US$ 2-3 billion” (which will be around Rs 12,000-18,000 crore as per current exchange rates)…”Even if only one per cent of Indian Muslims donate, we will be able to generate this amount,” Khan said while delivering the keynote address during a function of American Federation of Muslims of India origin.
Indicating the financial richness of the affluent section of Muslim people desirous to generate a separate educational, finacial, political, social system under Shariyat dictum, the Minority Affairs Minister expressed his view in the International Educational Summit for Islamic Education
He said Muslim people in India have the resources but only need the mechanism to generate and manage the fund. Saying these at least the central Minister reiterated that the Muslims are in India not ordinarily poor than the general poverty stricken people (mainly marginal Hindus in India.
When asked by when the government is likely to finalize the fund, Khan said “We have been working on this for some time. Now we are going to announce it very soon.”
He further said the government is taking all necessary steps to improve the conditions of the Muslims.
“The only priority of Indian Muslims is education. If you are educated, the society can be changed… Do not think that you are a minority, think that you are the second largest population in India,” Khan said.
On utilisation of funds by the North Eastern states, the Minister said the Centre had allocated Rs 700 crore for a multi-sectoral development in the region during the 11th Five Year Plan.
“Utilisation of funds is very slow. We have had discussions with the Chief Minister. We urge the state governments to give priority and focus more on utilisation,” he added.
The international speakers at the convention include scholars from Canada, USA, Singapore, United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates. These speakers advocated the ‘streamlining of Islamic education for all’ with the values of Quran and Hadit.
Besides, 133 meritorious students who have passed out from Class 10 and 12 from different parts of the country, including six from Assam, will be awarded with gold, silver and bronze medals along with cash prize.
AIUDF MLA and Convention Chairman Sirajuddin Ajmal said that this was the first time AFMI was holding its convention in this north-eastern part of the country and hoped students would benefit from this.
The American Federation of Muslims of Indian Origin (AFMI) is a prime funding organisation which provides funds to Muslim organisations in the name of education which promote fundamental Islamic pattern in education through the preaching and practice of the Handbook of Jehad, i.e. Quran. An international conspiracy to Islamize the Indian education system is also evident throughout India.
