    Being born a Muslim is a crime in Congress party: former MP - Times Of India
    ~
    BHOPAL: Former MP and head of the Indian Olympic Association, Aslam Sher Khan, has alleged that top leaders of the Congress party from Madhya Pradesh are trying to side-line him just because he is a Muslim.
    ~
    "I am the senior-most Muslim leader of the Congress party in Madhya Pradesh. I have been attached to the Congress for the past 32 years and was given tickets to contest Lok Sabha elections by the party high command through the decades from Indira Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi to PV Narasimha Rao," a peeved Aslam Sher Khan told TOI.
    ~
    "For the first time in the history of the Congress party, I feel as though being born a Muslim is a crime," Khan said on Sunday. "There is a clear division in the party with a privileged creamy group of persons including feudal lords and industrialists on one hand and Muslims, Dalits, tribals, backwards on the other. Theprivileged class will lead while we will be left behind," he added.
    ~
    The former member of the Indian hockey team argued that he was hurt by the behaviour of central leaders who refused to take him along to meet AICC president Sonia Gandhi after a coordination committee meeting at 24, Akbar Road in New Delhi on Saturday evening.
    ~
    There are 14 members in the Madhya Pradesh Congress coordination committee including union ministers Kamal Nath , Jyotiraditya Scindia, AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh andcentral leaders like Suresh Pachauri, Satyavrat Chaturvedi. AICC general secretary in-charge of Madhya Pradesh BK Hariprasad is also part of the coordination committee.
    ~
    According to Khan, all members of the coordination committee were summoned for a meeting to discuss and sort out differences between warring factions within the MPCC so that assembly election 2013 could be fought together against the ruling BJP.
    "This was a much-sought after meeting and we were told that the party president would be present. But BK Hariprasad said that Sonia Gandhi was busy and a delegation of six to seven persons would go to her residence at 10 Janpath and brief her. We were made to wait for one-and-a-half hours at the party headquarters and then asked to sign on a piece of paper. The privileged men went ahead to brief the party president and did not even return to tell us what was said," an irate Khan, who was elected to the Lok sabha from Betul constituency in 1984 and 1991 said.
    ~
    Leaders who met AICC president Sonia Gandhi's residence on Saturday evening included BK Hariprasad, Digvijay Singh, Kamal Nath, Suresh Pachauri, Jyotiraditya Scindia and PCC chief Kantilal Bhuria . "They left those who represent minorities, Dalits, backwards and women from meeting the party president," Khan alleged."We represent communities that are the backbone of theCongress party and yet there is no place for us. NP Prajapati who is a Dalit leader was not included neither was Indrajit Patel representing the OBC or Manju Rai who is a woman. And I am a Muslim.''
    ~
    Khan accused that the Congress has lost elections in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Bengal because of this continuous insult that is heaped on the less-privileged communities."In Madhya Pradesh we havelost every successive election from assembly to local bodies because of this attitude of central leaders," he said. "But this will not go on. I have vowed to stay within the Congress and show the party how important and strong the minority communities can be,"he threatened.
    ~
    Aslam Sher Khan is the second person in recent times to hurl accusations against central leaders. Earlier this month, MP from Dewas- Sajjan Singh Verma had pointed out that Congress leaders don't want to leave their air-conditioned comfort while the RSS campaigns for the BJP were living on just roasted gram dal and water.

    A lesson that Congress is not pro minorities but just politicking. It makes idiots out of voters.

    I think a lot of people will ignore this news, because it doesn't go with the narrative that is being paraded.

    Congress has been using these communities to remain in power only. Congress doesn't care about growth of ANY community. It's never for uniting the communities, always deviding. I guess Yusuf has the theory about how muslims are good to growth under BJP's rule.As we discussed in other thread that Business and unbiased,common opportunities to grow economically for every community are the keys for a United and peaceful India. Congress doesn't want to grow anybody so it can use the differences to play politics.

    I agree with the leftists here. Congress does not involve in minoritism like you know,
    1. Reservation for Muslims.
    2. Silence on the illegal BDs(before any lefty loony comes and says shit, look at the response from the Indian Muslim leaders on the matter)
    3. Communal violence bill which is like completely unbiased
    4. Play th "protection of Muslims" card from right wing terrorists like me( I rock :yey: ) by asking them to not vote for BJP- the party of Hindus:hmm:



    Anyway, if congress is a Secular party, then so is BJP and lets see if the Muslims here can vote for it. But they won't which all the lefty loonies know:truestory:

    It is, already in Andhra. The Bhagyalakshmi Mandir and the way Kiran Reddy govt handled it makes me think so...or it could also have been due the individual idealogical inclinations of some top honchos in the Govt like the Deputy CM who sent his wife to the mandir with full police protection when the issue was in full steam.

    This quote perfectly betrays what the INC, Badralok and the Communists have always been about.....concentration of power in the hands of upper class, upper caste, feudal elites under the guise of socialist egalitarianism.

    Aslam Sher Khan is an embittered person since he has not got his due.

    He has been one of the finest hockey players India has produced and for which he was basking in the limelight.

    It happens to all who get used to basking in the limelight to suddenly find themselves the reality of life beyond productive years.

    His father too was an Olympian hockey player and played in the Berlin Olympics.

    Congress is possibly the only party where Muslims do find due recognition and therefore, I wonder how far he is right.

    However, in MP, I presume it is old Digvijay and the Thakurs who call the shots and so the feeling of being left out in the cold is quite possible.

    Congress want to be seen as the savior of Muslims but they do nothing to uplift them, time for muslims to have their own party.

    The problem in India is that all political parties use everyone to suit their purpose i.e. vote to power and make merry!

    Political parties are like any corporate organisations where you enter at a lower rung ( provided you do not have a papa or mummy sitting at top) and you fight your way to the top.

    Aslam Sher Khan is no different, an Olympian, one of the few educated leaders in politics, very articulate speaker and he his geting sidelined by oldies who do not have the guts to fight the elections directly. they all derive their power from being close to the Madam and have no standing on the ground. It is but logical for people who are performing and winning elections are feeling stifled by these rotten carcasses.

    At the same time he knows that he has no future outside of the GOP,so his dissent has to wrapped in the politically correct sentences.

    Ray da what are you saying.
    I am surprised.
    Pleas explain it.
    But ya dada aslam khan dissipointed because he does not get attention from congress.
    But dada politics is like bollywood jo hit hain wohi fit hain.
    Its harsh but reality
    Aslam khan lose several loksabha election so he lost his importance in party.
    If you can win election you will rise rapidly.
    See mausam benajir noor become wb state youth congress president.
    Abdus sattar ,aba ghani khan chowdhuri held president posts in wb state congress because they can win election.
    At the end of day if you can win election from party you are important if you can't than you will lose importance.
    Yea digvijaya singh has a hold on mp congress

    I strongly oppose the idea of a party exclusively for muslims.
    Any party which is exclusive for one community is dangerous.
    Indian muslim are part of india.
    By creating separate party muslim will be further isolated from mainstrim.
    It will creat further misunderstanding betwen hindu-muslim.
    Belive me a muslim communal party is same like a hindu communal party.
    What a muslim communal party do i give you example as i saw them.
    1.first they will say vote for them because they are thekadar of islam.
    2.then they will try to creat a strong anti hindu sentiment among them,try to give example of various riot and put blame on local hindu population who has nothing to do with that riot.
    3.putting every blame
    on local hindu population and try to represent them as villen in front of muslim.
    4.try to increase misunderstanding betwen communities.
    5.discourage muslim from maintaing a good relation with hindus and stop cultural exchange betwen communities.
    6.try to provok communal sentiment among muslim by giving hateful spech.
    7.try to build up a feeling muslim are not so important part of india like others.
    In recent by election
    of murshidabad i saw this.
    I was feeling like slapping them in both face.
    Wherever a communal party rise communal harmony badly distrubed.
