Unity among Dalith & Muslims-#NotInMyName

So long as Muslims and Dalits do not get united, fascist forces would continue to trouble them since Govt. is providing an opportunity to do this. These thoughts were expressed by Mr. Zaheeruddin Ali Khan, Managing Editor of Siasat Urdu Daily while addressing a protest meeting held at Press Club yesterday organized by Citizens’ Forum for Peace and Justice, Hyderabad against the atrocities on Muslims and Dalits under the pretext of protection of cow. Mr. Zaheeruddin Ali Khan further told that in the recently held UP Assembly elections, Dalit leader, Ms. Mayawati could not get even a single seat from 85 Assembly constituencies where predominant population belongs to weaker sections. The tragic situation is that in these Assembly constituencies, there are 20% Muslims. Despite this, the votes of Muslims and Dalits got split and BJP won the seats. If Dalits and Muslims had fought jointly, BJP would not have got even a single seat. Dr K Narayana, Professor Kodanda Ram, Mr. Syed Azeez Pasha, Mr J B Raju can also be seen addressing. (Photo: Zabi)
