Adilabad: To strengthen its political base in the changed political scenario in the country and to unite Dalits, adivasis and Muslims to fight against communal forces, the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen is taking forward its new slogan “Jai Bheem, Jai Meem” to new heights by organising a public meeting on Saturday in Nagpur, Maharashtra, where the RSS has its headquarters.

With ‘Jai Bheem’, which refers to Dr B.R. Ambedkar, the MIM wants to woo Dalits. ‘Jai Meem’ is the Urdu alphabet equivalent to ‘M’ and is meant to attract Muslims.


MIM leaders feel that the party’s slogan has hit the right nerve and the results in the recent Maharashtra elections, where it won two seats, were an indication of this.

Nagpur is also considered a sacred place by Dalits as B.R. Ambedkar embraced Buddhism along with thousands of his followers there in 1956.

It may be mentioned that the Bengaluru police had not given permission to party president Asaduddin Owaisi to address a public meeting there,

According to sources, a large number of Dalits and Muslims will take part in the Nagpur meeting, addressed by Mr Owaisi. The meeting assumes significance in the backdrop of the right wing ghar wapsi programme and other developments.

It is expected that Mr Owaisi will highlight the recent political developments at Nagpur and may announce his party’s future political course. MIM leader from Adilabad Farooq Ahmed said some Dalit organisations had also extended their support to MIM.
