This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
to realize and accept the change in geopolitics and socio-political situation within the Bharat tremendously altered by the partition. The Muslim leaders carry on their communal agenda such as demand for a separate electorate or reservations for their community with in the constituent assembly and in political meetings. At this juncture I want to convey that the constitutional safeguards inserted by the framers of the Constitution also created obstacles and feeling of mistrust in the majority community who was devastated by the horrible partition. With these Constitution safeguards, the Muslim leadership harmed the Muslim community more than anything else did.
When the constituent assembly debate was about to finish, Dr B. R. Ambedkar, said in his reply to the debate on November 25, 1949. That, however good a constitution may be it is sure to turn or bad, because those who are called to work it happened to be a bad lot. The working of a constitution does not depend wholly upon the nature of the Constitution. The Constitution can provide only the organs of the state such as the legislature, the executive, and the judiciary. The factors on which the working of these organs of the state depends the people and the political parties. They will set up as their instrument to carry out their wishes and their politics. Who can so say, how the people of India, and their parties will be in future? He further said that it is futile to pass any judgment upon the Constitution without reference to the part, which the people and their parties are likely to play.
In a democratic setup like India the process of social integration. The Lucknow Pact. In total disregard of its history. always guided by the separatist school of thought. and Chelmsford in 1918. and radically altered situation. decided the destiny of the Muslims in Bharatiya Subcontinent. They even failed to understand the basic fact that what they are demanding will paint the remaining Muslim community as antinational. which ultimately resulted into partition of this country. the Muslim leadership in India never allows the Muslim masses to start this process of social and political integration with other mainstream communities or a majority community. form rest of the Bharat. The creation of separate electorate for the Muslims drastically reduces an important leverage for them and they started their isolation. the Muslim league members demanded separate electorates for the Muslims in Bharat. and as a group preparing for many more partition of this country. observed that a minority. and in post-independence India whether of Muslim league or Congress or Socialists or Communists. jointly authorized by the Montagu. The Lucknow pact between the Congress and the Muslim league in 1916 was acceptance of this separatist political theory. This nonparticipation in the mainstream political activism was evident during the debates in constituent assembly. the best course is always participation in the political process. Unfortunately. . The report on Indian constitutional reforms. after the Hunter commission report. the Muslim leaders did not shoulder this challenge in positive spirit. Unfortunately. In a democratic process. which is given special representation. along with political integration is in between the different communities is the basic requirement. The Muslim leadership of Bharat in pre-independence era.
The creation of separate electorate for the Muslims of Bharat created a mechanism to banish them from power and effectively obstruct the process of social and political integration and send them into isolation.owing to its weak and backward state. The Muslim league. I know there is an attempt by . If you are thinking of anything else. When the all India Muslim league. which is the biggest obstacle in integrating the Bharatiya Muslim with the rest of Bharat. which it has lost. The demand for the separate electorate and reservation for the Muslims is continuance of the same separate test mindset. is a very serious hindrance to the development of the self-governing principle. There is no inducement to the one side to forbear or to the other to exert itself. If you want to wind up the league you can do so. you are finished. On November 14-15 1947. but I think it would be a great mistake. failed to understand the ground realities. So as the different political parties committed the same mistake in the post independence Bharat. To make good the ground. On the other hand. The give and take. is lacking. is positively encouraged to settle down into a feeling of satisfied security. The communal system stereotypes existing relations. and that they are free to use their power for their own purposes. Jinnah insisted on the league's continuation in India. We regard any system of communal electorates. it is under no inducement to educate and qualify itself. This separatist and destructive mindset of Mohammad Ali Jinnah was continued even after the bloodbath of millions of innocent Hindus and Muslims. met for the last time in Karachi. compared with the stronger majority. which is the essence of political life. therefore. the latter will be tempted to feel that they have done all they need to do for their weaker fellow countrymen. Jinnah said that there must be a Muslim league in Hindustan.
1947. Even now. It is true that some of the Muslim members supported the Patel’s resolution however the damage was done.Maulana Abul Kalam Azad and others to break the identity of Muslims in India. Assuming that they are agreed today to the reservation of seats. He threatened to withdraw the concession of reservation of seats. For a community to think that its interests are different from that of the country in which it live is a great mistake. The leaders of Indian Muslims compel the constituent assembly to discuss the issue of separate electorates and reservation for the Muslims in the legislature and parliament. poker (a Muslim representative) moved amendment that as far as Muslims are concerned. But I know this that they have got a mandate from the Muslim league to move this amendment. I would consider myself to be the greatest enemy of the Muslim community. be held on the basis of separate electorates. the bulk of Muslim representatives pressed for reservation of seats and separate electorates. in May 1949 Patel dropped reservation of seats on a motion. Assume that you have separate electorates on a communal basis. This is not a place today to act on your conscience and to act for the good of the country. Vallabh Bhai Patel was not happy with the demand for separate electorates. Will you ever find a . Finally. do not do it. Then. when Vallabh Bhai Patel moved that all the elections will be held on the basis of joint electorates. because of the consequences of the step in a secular and democratic state. Under the directions of the leaders of Muslim league is from Pakistan. I feel sorry for them. Patel response was not pleasant but the fact delivered cannot be ignored. On August 27. Do not allow it. Patel said that I do not know whether there has been any change in their attitude to bring forward such an amendment. after all this long reflection and experience of what has happened in this country. Even after witnessing bloodbath of partition. B.
This failure is no doubt. they are victim of gross discrimination. and the Muslims are regarded as second-class citizens. but the Muslim leadership failed miserably to understand the import of the analysis presented by Mr. the element of fear psychosis is settled in the thought process of Indian Muslims due to events of history. these moderate Muslim leaders vanished from the political scene of Bharat and the space was completely controlled by separatist and fundamentalist Muslim leaders without having any relation with the suffering of common Muslim masses. cannot afford this isolation with separatist goal. A series of communal riots. or who do not trust the majority. What Mr. It is true that some Muslim leaders supported the views of Patel. Patel. failure of Muslim leadership. and the Muslim leaders responsible for a concretizing this fear psychosis for their own selfish benefits. Accordingly. We cannot forget the role of Muslim leadership during the colonial period. Then. it is a national failure also. you will have no share in the government.place in any of the ministries in the province or in the centre? You have a separate interest. The Muslim leadership mostly pursued the communal agenda. You will exclude yourself and remained perpetually in a minority. and after the independence. under the falsely created myth that the Muslims are handicapped. However. what advantage will you gain. Patel said. Having history of conflict and war since last 1200 years the Muslims of the subcontinent now onwards. She had a Ministry or a government based on joint responsibility. over the period of time. in every part . effectively. in independent Bharat. but at the same time. was in the interest of minority. The Muslims of Bharat suffered due to selfish and shortsighted politics of the so-called Muslim leaders and the politics of Congress Socialist Communist etc. cannot obviously come into the government itself. where people do not trust's.
or slight procreation. this notion is settled down in the psyche of common Bharatiya that the Bharatiya Muslims are still somehow. Sometimes. with periodic blasts. they must disassociate themselves with Pakistan and refrain from any activity. sometimes with petty reasons. As Patel observed that the Muslim leaders were guided by Pakistan. which strengthened the notion that the Bharatiya Muslims is still crying for existing Pakistan or trying to form a new Pakistani. established the fact that the Muslims of Bharat do not ready to accept this country as their own country. With such notion already exists. Bharat. and is strengthened by series of communal riots in post independence. we end with more wounds. It will cause more harm. even without reason. Empowerment of Bharatiya Muslims cannot be achieved by communal mobilization. In the process of resolving the dispute Most of the time. either guided or advised by their Pakistani brothers. .of India. The problem is now complex and with many undefined dimensions.
