Hyderabad: The souvenir depicting the role of Movement for Peace and Justice, an outfit of Jamat-e-Islami was released by Mr. Mohammed Mahmood Ali, Dy.

Before Jamat-e-Islami joined Telangana Movement, Andhra leaders were making an attempt to sabotage Telangana Movement saying that Muslims are not in favour of separate Telangana.

Addressing the gathering, Prof. Kodandaram told that under the conspiracy, certain political parties were trying to give an impression that the Muslims are against Telangana Movement. During this period, Jamat-e-Islami and MPJ organized a grand public meeting at Nizam College to show that the Muslims are with Telangana Movement. Mr. M. Veda Kumar, Chairman of Telangana Resource Center gave the details of the contribution made by Jamat-e-Islami and MPJ. Secretary of MPJ, Mr. Saleem gave the detailed report on this occasion.
