All INDIA MUSLIM MAJLIS-E-SHOORA
A Non Starter, Why?
This was also a part of my strategy that a national organization representing almost all sections of Muslim society be established so that the community may get a consultative mechanism right from the grass root level to national level. On paper it was done, people also joined, organization was also registered and a political convention was also held but it could not be pushed further. It required adequate financial resources which I could not manage and as such its proper structure could not be raised though highly distinguished people from all walks of life, representing all regions, states and shades of opinion got associated with it.
"The funds were and are available for fictitious conventions and so called Muslim oriented welfare activities, backed by vested political interests and Hindu industrialists having their own political and economic agenda to persue and from other such arrangements".
"And above all, I have never believed in serving the Master's will and their drawn agenda, rather I want my community to be the Master of its own fate, will and decisions. I also did not want any thing in my coffers by way of loans or financial assistance unauthorizedly under the cover of some government scheme".
Some persons who had joined this organization out of selfish motives also parted with as persons not getting immediate gains, sometimes rather generally adopt such a course. As a matter of fact this organization was not established for personal gains. I have always wanted community financial assistance to run it which did not come to me.
"I have always been against foreign assistance in political matters of Muslims. I hope Almighty Allah will raise people from within the community who shall come forward to run and support the organization in the manner I want. The day I find such persons I intend to activate it to its full potential. Insha-Allah."

I am grateful to all of you for showing interest in this initiative. Reasons for not keeping the Shoora functional have already been elaborated. Until and unless transparent Muslim funding is not available to run the Shoora for the good of the community its full activation is not possible. However, let me assure you that though it is now ten years old but in these years it has not been misused for any personal, social, political, economic or financial purpose. The first and the last convention was held in Ansari Auditorium, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi on 21st April 1996.
In my personal capacity, what all I have been doing in this period I am making that public and now it is for each one of you to assess and and have an independent judgement on my past track record.
I would love to see Shoora becoming fully functional and perform the role for which it was floated. My efforts in this direction are constantly there.
As of now to take the message of this mission and movement I am launching a website with the title, "muslimmajliseshooraindia.org" Through this site I will be interacting with the media, people in general and the youth of my community in particular. It will be kept update, comprehensive and yielding. Inshallah.
