Bangalore: Karnataka Muslim Muttahida Mahaz has urged the Muslim organistions to promote social leaders at all levels to replace present corrupt political leaders. “Though it is a long-term programme, the beginning has to be made at the earliest,” said Mahaz convenor Mr. Masood Abdul Khadir, at its general body meeting held on 4th February here.
Mahaz is the confederation of 28 Muslim organisations presently working in Karnataka state. Presenting the brief report of the Mahaz, Mr. Syed Muhammad Iqbal said, “From the past four years Mahaz has been engaged in creating political awareness in the community. It took up issues of electoral identity cards, detention of innocent Muslim youth, and publication of blasphemous story in the daily ‘Kannada Prabha.’ It participated in the ‘anti cow slaughter bill’ movement.” He also explained about the activities which Mahaz undertook to strengthen its presence.
