Celebrations of merger of Hyderabad in Indian Union were held at various places in Hyderabd Karnataka Region. A Colloquium was organized by the Managing Committee of Huda Masjid of Chincholi on “Police Action on Hyderabad and its Reality”.
The meeting started with the recitation of the Quranic verses by Mr. Lal Mohammed. Mr. Syed Kaleemuddin presented his welcome address. Expressing in views, he told that the youths of today feel themselves guilty because they are ignorant of the facts about Police Action on Hyderabad. They blamed their ancestors for it. In order to eradicate this misunderstanding this colloquium has been arranged.
Mr. Khaja Moinuddin, Councillor of the Municipality highlighted the events of Police Action and told that it was a conspiracy of the communal minded people and a few Govt. officials. Muslims were put to loss deliberately. He told that when India got Independence, it was not in the present shape. It was divided into more than 300 smaller states.
Gradually, all these states were merged into Indian Union. In the same way, Hyderabad State was also merged with India. Although this event is remembered but the damages caused to the Muslims are not mentioned MR. Abdul Quddoos (Jamaat-e-Islami) in his speech told that Hyderabad State was a secular state in which everyone was treated equally.
The merger of Hyderabad State is not a very extra ordinary event but it is presented as if it has been conquered by attacking an enemy. Sikkim was also merged at a very later stage but this is not mentioned. In all the political parties in India there is a fixed limit for any Muslim leader of the party. If he crosses that limit, he is pushed to background. He is discouraged. It is, therefore necessary for the Muslim leadership of this country to work in various political parties keeping in mind the interests of the Muslim Community.
Mr. Abdul Qayyum, former Municipal Councilor, Mr. Syed Zameer, Mr. Abdul Basith, Chairman of the Municipality, Mr. Abdul Hameed, Mr. Mahmood Ali Quraishi, Mohammed Mazher Ali and many others attended the meeting.
