AIMC Sets A Precedent in Maintaining Peace and Harmony
By A U Asif

It was a historic occasion. The Allahabad High Court verdict in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janambhumi title suit was expected. First, the date was September 24, 2010. Later, it was fixed for September 30. Every body and group was eagerly waiting for it. However, there was one organization that was engaged in ensuring how situation in the wake of the much-awaited verdict was tackled to maintain peace and communal harmony. Away from what would the High Court decide, tackling the situation in any case irrespective of the nature of the verdict was the moot point before the All India Milli Council (AIMC).

On September 21 the AIMC at an emergency meeting, presided over by its General Secretary Dr Manzoor Alam held at the Institute of Objective Studies (IOS) office, decided to constitute a 3-member “Monitoring Committee for Peace and Communal Harmony” under the stewardship of former Delhi Police official and its Finance Secretary Mauji Khan. The other two members included AIMC staffers Safi Akhtar and Waseem Ahmed. Afterwards, the Home Ministry was informed about its decision.

The Monitoring Committee with a dozen-member volunteer team sprung into action since September 29. The volunteers included Er Imdadullah Jauhar, Feroz Siddiqui, Ataur Rahman, Anwer Hussain, Imteyaz Hassan, Qamar Ishaque, Tanveer Ahmed, Raqueeb Alam, Mohammed Salman and others.

The committee monitored the situation for two days from the AIMC central office that remained opened 24 hours. Its volunteers performed duty in different shifts and kept an eye on the situation prevailing in different districts of the states like Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, West Bengal. Andhra Pradesh. Goa and Bihar and remained engaged day and night in exchanging views with its regional unit heads, workers and sympathizers as well as responsible local leaders.

On this occasion, telephones were ringing round the clock and the volunteers were striving to keep the general Muslims everywhere away from despair and negative reaction following the verdict. It assured them that while remaining committed to the standpoint of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), it would help it assess the legal aspects of the issue concerned and expedite the future course of action in this connection.

The AIMC efforts under the “Monitoring Committee for Peace and Communal Harmony” cast a magic-like effect upon the entire Muslim community and set a precedent. “This was, unquestioningly, a unique experiment from the civil society in maintaining peace and harmony,” said Mauji Khan, convener of the monitoring committee.
