29. BJYM’S meet on June 7
NEW DELHI, June 5 - The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the youth wing of the BJP, will organise a conference of the Muslim youth to mark the golden Jubilee celebrations of the independence.
Addressing a joint Press conference here today, BJYM’s all India general secretary Shahnawaz Hussain and Delhi unit president Begraj Kathana, said that conference at national level will be held here on June 7. It will be presided over by Ms Uma Bharati. Prominent leaders, who will also address the conference, include Mr Sikander Bakht, MP and Mr Krishan Lal Sharma, MP.
They said that similar conferences will also be held later on at Lucknow (June 11), Calcutta (June 15) and Hyderabad (June 26).
that the BJYM was against the policy of appeasement. They clarified that
the interests of the Muslims will be safeguarded if the BJP came to power
at the Centre.*
BJP is now out to confirm, on the 50th anniversary of the Partition, the
Congress-Communist thesis that it was not the Muslims but the ‘Hindu communalists’
who divided the country. Small wonder that Muslim should be invited by
the BJP to celebrate a great triumph in the history of Islam in India.
