IUML: find political solutions

Staff Reporter

Muneer addresses anti-terror meet

Kozhikode: Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) leader M.K. Muneer has said that a political approach is the best way to deal with the growing terrorism and fascism in the State.

He was speaking at an anti-terrorism and anti-fascism convention organised by the IUML district committee here on Monday in connection with the anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition.

Making a scathing attack on Muslim fundamentalist outfits, Dr. Muneer said the incidents such as attack on the Muvattupuzha Newman College teacher had tarnished the image of the Muslim community. Such attacks had also created an impression that all terrorists were Muslims, he said.

He said that the IUML did not need the assistance of “quotation teams” to take up the challenges faced by Islam. Any challenges could be tackled through democratic means.

The former Minister said the State remained incident-free soon after the demolition of the Babri Masjid because of the pragmatic and strong leadership of the IUML. Then the party leadership had vigorously campaigned asking its workers not to resort to violence but protest in a peaceful and democratic manner.

The IUML had taken an unconditional stand against all sorts of fascism. The decisions that had been taken by the late Syed Mohammedali Shihab Thangal gave the party to move ahead during the turbulent times, Dr. Muneer said.

IUML district leaders M.C. Mayin Haji, C.K. Moidu, T.P.M. Zahir, C. Abdurehiman, K.M. Shaji and V.K. Firoz spoke.
