“Unfortunately, we have discussed a lot of things about Sachar Commission but at the same time, we have not even discussed Ranganath Mishra Commission. So, I would like to say that we have to take a very, very active step to implement the recommendations of the Sachar Commission. Unfortunately, there is a trend as far as the minorities are concerned. They are treated as an election urgent stuff. It should not be so. You have to do justice to them.”
Mr. Chairman, Sir, thank you very much for giving me this opportunity.
Sir, as correctly mentioned by the hon. Minister, the scope of this Bill is very limited. There is only a slight modification replacing one word with another word, ‘military law’ in place of ‘martial law’. The Standing Committee on this subject has also given the reason for that.
Sir, Liberhan Commission has presented its report after a delay of 17 years with 42 extensions. I wish no committee or commission will have this ill fate. Commission pinpointed-who are all intellectually ideologically, and physically responsible for the demolition of baberi masjid. Commission says that the demolition of mosque was well orchestrated with long preparation, pre-planning and not as spontaneous action out of anger. Commission has fixed the culpability on 68 persons such as A.B. Vajpeyi, K.S. Sundersan, L.
I would like to submit that I had held the education portfolio for seven years in Kerala, representing Muslim League. It was during my period that a Sanskrit University in the name of Sri Shankaracharya was established in Kerala. As far as education is concerned, BJP should not make communal division.
Madam, I stand to support the Motion of Thanks moved in this august body expressing thanks to the President’s speech. I express my heartfelt thanks for giving me this opportunity to make my maiden speech in this august body. As far as our organisation is concerned, that is, the Muslim League, we stand for secular, democratic process of our country. I hail from Ponnani Constituency of Kerala, which has given commendable contribution in the National movement.
