And hold fast all of you together, to the cable of Allah, and be not divided among yourselves. – Holy Quran 3: 103
The Indian union Muslim league (IUML), the only representative political organisation of the Muslims of India, has completed 67 years of splendid services to the country and to the community. It has been in the pursuit of socio-political empowerment of the Muslim Ummah and other deprived sections of the people upholding the democratic rights guaranteed by the constitution of our country. IUML has undertaken strenuous efforts to reach out to the grass root level by mobilizing people on secular democratic ideals with a thrust on social justice and communal harmony. IUML calls upon the youth to take stock of the present situation and formulate future course of action in consonance with the lofty objectives of the party.
Let us have a brief overview of the lessons of history. Needless to say, the partition of the country turned to be a setback to the Muslims of northern India. The nation witnessed the unprecedented flow of refugees, millions in number, to and fro. About two million poor people were brutally assassinated in broad day light. Distinguished leaders of Muslim community migrated to the newly formed Muslim nation. Practically there was neither a leader to console the community nor an organization to look after them.
