Basha expresses confidence in increased economic, political, and educational opportunities for Muslims in Andhra Pradesh.

Vijayawada: Deputy Chief Minister S.B. Amzath Basha said Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has given priority to development of minorities in addition to providing them opportunities in the government and YSR Congress party.

He was speaking at the All-India Milli Council Conference on Minorities Rights and Responsibilities in Vijayawada on Sunday in which minority leaders and masses participated in large numbers.

Addressing the gathering, Amzath Basha expressed confidence that in the coming days, Muslims will witness more economic, political and educational development in Andhra Pradesh.

All-India Milli Council (AIMC) state general secretary Sheikh Muneer Ahmed said they have taken up many problems with the government, which have been solved.

These include conducting MA Urdu classes at Acharya Nagarjuna University. They are working on introducing an MA Arabic course in ANU in the coming days. Likewise, they are trying to establish a branch of Dr. Abdul Haq Urdu University in Guntur and appoint teachers to modernise education in 175 madrasas.

AIMC national secretary Mustafa Rifai Jilani, AP state president Abdul Qadir and others said there are 30 crore Muslims living as complete patriots in the country. They refuted allegations of BJP branding Muslims as anti-nationals.

They charged that the BJP had introduced the Halal Haram slogan and bulldozer culture in UP, the burkha slogan in Karnataka and azaan controversy in Maharashtra to damage Muslims for political gains.
