MUSLIMS ARE NOT FOREIGNERS IN INDIA: RAJINDER SACHAR

Inside India

Muslims need to be empowered with education and the community should stop its dependency on the government, said Rajinder Sachar, former Chief Justice of Delhi High Court. “Why you are completely depended upon the government...why not force the government to get equal opportunities for you? You will have to do that,” he said, speaking at the inaugural session of 9th All India Muslim Educational Conference (AIMES).

Delivering the keynote address, he said, “Muslims are not foreigners in India...they have equal rights as other communities have. If anyone talks about ‘Hindu Rashtra’ or one community he will destroy it because the country is not made of a single community.” Titled as ‘Iqra-2012’, the conference was inaugurated by Fathima Beevi, former Governor of Tamil Nadu and the first woman judge of the Supreme Court. In her address, Beevi said it was necessary to embrace technology and new models of education to bring positive change in the society.
