Message given by Dr. Mohammad Manzoor Alam on the eve of Eid-ul Fitr 

In an interview with the Millat Times (Urdu daily, Delhi), published on May 2, 2022, on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr, Dr. Mohammad Manzoor Alam, General Secretary, All India Milli Council, said that the Blessed Month of Ramadan is bidding farewell. Guided by the Divine help, we tried to benefit ourselves from this month; we kept fast, offered prayers, recited the Holy Qur’an, tried to understand its meaning and commentary, gave charity and did our best by all possible means to create strong bonds with our Lord.  We should also think if, in the context of the prevailing circumstances, we are ready to get necessary lessons from the Noble Qur’an. Dr. Manzoor Alam said that it is necessary to reflect on such questions.


Dr. Mohammad Manzoor Alam

The development of any society and country depends on the delivery of justice. Social justice, harmony in society and the prevention of riots guarantee the progress and growth of humanity. A country or society can be called developed in the real sense only if justice thrives there, and people’s life, property and honour are secure; where people are allowed to speak the truth and live with full freedom, feeling safe; where people are confident that if they are oppressed, action will be taken against the transgressors who will be booked under the law of the land, and criminals will get due punishment for their misdeeds. When there is assurance that the Judiciary will deliver justice and police will perform their duty honestly, while investigative agencies will act without any bias, and if it happens, the transgressors and criminals will not dare to oppress and coerce the innocent in future. 


Dr. Mohammad Manzoor Alam
At this time, our dear motherland is moving in a strange direction. Due to the policies of the government, which came into being in 2014, the guts of the communal forces and anti-social elements have gone so high that every single peace-loving citizen of the country is extremely distressed. These conditions are compelling serious and sincere circles of the country, particularly minorities, to reflect on the present grave situation. On one side are communities living in our land and minorities, while on the other hand, are Muslims who constitute the largest minority. The latter are confronted with unparalleled anxiety. International bodies are also showing their concern over the over-all situation. In these circumstances there is no escape from seeking some effective remedy by undertaking certain measures. If these measures are taken, conditions may improve, and the gravity of the situation can be altered to a great extent.
