Jalna (Maha): MP and senior leader of Jamiat-ul Ulema Hind, Maulana Syed Mehmood Asad Madni said he would oppose the Central Madarsa Board which infringes religious and cultural identity of Madarsa.

Madni was speaking at a conference 'Usol-e Insaf' held at the Urdu High School compound here today.

He said that the government should give reservation to Muslims without disturbing other quotas. He said the UPA government should amend the Constitution and bring a bill of reservation in the Parliament. However, Madni said that Muslims should pursue education as qualities and brains would be valued and respected.

He urged Muslims to prepare a vision of 20 years for spreading education in the community. He said that education is solution for all problems.

He lambasted the Maharashtra government for arresting innocent persons. He said the accused should not be branded as a criminal. An accused, irrespective of caste and religious, should not be declared criminal unless the court declares. He appealed the Muslims not to fall prey to emotive issues which are obstacles of their development. He appealed the community to be aware of deceivers who provoke the community.

He said that where there is justice there is development. "No country can be developed without prevailing justice." He alleged that Muslims are being sidelined. He said that Muslim is not minority in the country they are shareholders and not tenant in the country. However, he said that Muslims should know their responsibility as well as their rights.

There is no place for terrorism in Islam, he said. "We do not give the answer of violence to violence," he said. Rights can be achieved through peaceful and democratic manner, he said.
