Asserting that the Muslims in the Telangana region strongly favour a separate state contrary to what was projected in the Srikrishna Committee report, Malik Moatasim Khan, state president of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind said that in the coming future, the organisation will be in the forefront of various statehood agitations. Speaking at a press conference which saw the participation of prominent Telangana agitation leaders, Khan also expressed confidence that MIM would also support the cause soon. Rubbishing apprehensions that a separate Telangana may whip up communal tensions, he said that communal problems were present throughout the country. “If separate Telangana is formed, the Rayalseema-Andhra domination will end and more Muslims will get an opportunity to play key roles in various fields,” he said.
