The Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha wishes to emphasize that Bharatiya values envision man and woman as fundamentally complementary to each other, who, with a mutually understanding relationship, engage themselves in their respective roles to build a harmonious family and contribute in all walks of national life. Bharat’s history and literature is full of instances illustrating woman’s glory and greatness. In ‘Rigveda’, the oldest treatise in human history, more than 30 women are mentioned as seers who have contributed ‘Mantras’ to it, and its body text amply illustrates the splendid contribution of woman in all walks of life. It has continued since then. It is a fact that nature has ordained certain difference between man and woman. But Bharatiya tradition has never approved of any discrimination against woman, always giving her a place of respect and honor in every sphere of life. Hence it must be ensured that there is no discriminatory behavior against them and their participation in the decision-making process is always upheld.

Luxurious lifestyle has led to gradual degeneration in our social life. Foreign invaders selectively targeted our beliefs and symbols of devotion, and our universally acclaimed values of life started disintegrating. The glamour of materialism made us blind followers of the West, where promiscuity is what we got in the name of woman’s emancipation. The storm of globalization and liberalization led to a craze of turning woman into an object of enjoyment rather than an epitome of respect. The ABPS expresses its concern over the scornful attempts to destroy the dignity and honour of our womenfolk thereby destroying our family system by way of the depiction of vulgar and obscene pictures and visuals of woman in advertisements, magazines and periodicals, news channels, television serials and movies.

The ABPS sees it as regretful that women are being increasingly subjected to indecent behavior  eve-teasing, sexual exploitation, abuse and other despicable crimes. It is deeply distressing that in addition to female foeticide, dowry violence etc; they are subjected to sexual abuse at work places, public places and even homes too. The ABPS demands that the Government must ensure effective implementation of the laws intended for the safety, security and empowerment of woman; as well as those meant for the protection of woman from domestic violence; abuse-exploitation at public places and work places. A strict law, along with an effective code of conduct that would uphold the dignity of womenfolk, should be enacted to regulate the advertisements and programs of print and electronic media.

The ABPS profoundly feels the need for a radical transformation in the mindset of society to bring in a meaningful change in this de-culturising situation. Just to rely upon the laws promulgated by the Government will be self-deceptive. The society must honestly realize that it is created by the institution of family and woman is the pivot of the family; hence a developed society cannot be envisaged without an enlightened, awakened and empowered woman. It is a pressing necessity that families, education system, media and society must change their attitude to ensure a respectful behavior towards woman. The ABPS appeals to the saints and social leaders also to take a leading role in this respect.

End of Resolution.

Ahmadiya community denied permission for Hyderabad meet

The news item below ( from 2008) shows that the government will bend to every threat that the MIM poses.

It is unfortunate that the Ahmediyas were not allowed to have their conference in Hyderabad and the government has bowed down to the threats of the MIM. Proves once again that the Sunni Muslims exercise influence and control on the government. The government strategically focusses on Sunni Muslim , Christians and  couple of caste groups votes for its survival and therefore works towards creating fissures among other religious denominations.

Hyderabad, June 10, 2008 (IANS) The Andhra Pradesh government has refused permission to the Ahmadiya community to hold a meeting here June 15 following protests from some Muslim groups.

Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy directed the police not to allow the community to hold its meeting at any public place as this could create law and order problems in the city.

A delegation of Muslim groups led by Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi had called on the chief minister Monday to demand that the Ahmadiya, also called Qadianis, should not be allowed to hold their conference.

The controversial sect was to hold its meeting at the Public Gardens, in the heart of the city.

The delegation said the meet could vitiate the peaceful atmosphere as the activities of Qadianis were provocative. A representation submitted to the chief minister said the Qadianis were declared non-Muslims by all Muslims countries as their beliefs clash with the basic tenets of Islam.

The delegation comprising several clerics said the activities of the sect were hurting the religious sentiments of Muslims as it calls itself Ahmadiya Muslims and warned that the permission to hold a meeting could create law and order problems.

“They (Qadianis) don’t believe that Hazrat Mohammed is the last prophet sent by Allah and this is against the basic belief of Muslims but they still carry on activities with Muslim names thus misleading people,” said Abdul Raheem Qureshi, assistant secretary of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, the apex body of Indian Muslims.

He pointed out that the founder of the sect had claimed that he was a prophet and sometimes even said he was Jesus.

Owaisi, leader of the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM), explained the activities of the sect to the chief minister, who directed the officials not to allow the sect to hold its meeting at any public place and not to give any official patronage to the event.

The chief minister said ministers would neither attend the meet nor send any greeting message. He also asked authorities of state-owned Road Transport Corporation (RTC) to remove the posters about the event from all RTC buses.

The delegation comprised prominent religious scholar Moulana Hameeduddin Auqil Hussami, imam of the historic Mecca Masjid here, Moulana Abdullah Qureshi Al-Azhari and representatives of several groups including Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamiatul Ulema, Tableegi Jamaat and the head of Jamia Nizamia, an over 130-year-old Islamic university.

Muslims comprise 30 percent of the city’s seven million population.
