Why do we need an organisation like this?
As many aspects of Muslims issues in India have been relegated to the back ground by the successive regimes in independent India and the political class claiming to be representatives of the community, and in this way creating a big vacuum in the needs and address system so it became necessary to refresh the whole idea of identifying with the real problems of the community.
