Foundation Chairman E.M. Abdul Rahiman, who chaired the function quoted the Qur’anic verse that “Allah will not change a community unless they change themselves” during his presidential address to emphasize the need of developing an attitude change required for achieving a “Bright Future” instead of blaming the past and rollicking in the memories of the glorious past. The India 2047 Project initiated by Empower India Foundation is meant to empower the community in social, political, cultural, economic and educational spheres. The Project in fact is a dream, hope, determination and commitment with its Mission and Vision defined, focus areas with pertinent objectives identified and action items determined, he introduced the project to the gathering. Equal growth and development are our right in a democracy; and it is the need of the hour to make alliance with the other marginalized communities like the Dalits, Adivasis and other minorities to seize our rights when it is being denied by the rulers. During the past three and half years of the fascist rule, “othering” and alienating the Muslims havecreated a sort of fear an insecurity in Muslims. But still the hope is not lost, he said, narrating his experience during a visit of Muslim community leaders in Uttar Pradesh, who are ready to take up the mission of empowerment if proper guidance and leadership are given.

Pre-lunch session continued with Dr. Fakhruddin Mohammed, Hon. Secretary of MESCO, Hyderabad releasing the online version of the Project Document, by handing a CD of the Project Document to Ms. Salma Sadiqa, Joint Registrar, Karnataka Minority Commission. During his speech after releasing the online version, Dr. Fakhruddin Mohammed urged the community not to waste the forthcoming thirty years, and to become the part of this 2047 Project to empower the community by the dawn of the second century of independence. He congratulated the Empower India team for initiating such a huge project which would help the community to get empowered in line with the directions of Qur’an and practices of Rasool (SA).

The keynote address was delivered by Dr. P.K Abdul Azeez. India is a pluralistic country where people of diverse religious faiths have been living together in harmony. Freedom struggle was fought together by Muslims and Hindus and there had been many martyrs in the struggle from both communities. Our ancestors chose to live in this country by keeping it close to their heart, after the independence. Muslims are not ready to be second citizens, though the political parties and historians deliberately try to obscure the sacrifices of Muslims for the country by tagging them “Doubtful Citizens”. Despite the efforts of certain anti-national forces to dent the amity among the communities, India still remains a nation where people have freedom to express their views and live according to their faith, unlike many monarchical countries, Dr. Azeez commented. Sachar Report has unveiled the appalling condition of the Muslim community in India. This state could be overcome only by empowering the Mohallas. If Empower India Foundation is able to lead this empowerment mission, then the Muslim community will definitely move to a higher level. Educational backwardness should also be addressed with due importance. Supreme Court is now hearing the Triple Talaq issue; unfortunately, Muslim community lack competent lawyers from within to defend the case from the Islamic perspective. We should develop scholars from within the community who will be able to assume higher positions in all fields of life. So, educational empowerment should also occupy the front row in the empowerment agenda. We should develop a multi-faceted community sans narrow mindedness, and with required skills to move to higher levels,for the success of this mission, said Dr. Azeez.

Prof. Nishath Khalida Parveen, former Principal, Abbas Khan College for Women, and Vice Chairperson of Empower India Foundation commented in her speech that the Foundation was giving conceptual, intellectual and motivational support to the community in the empowerment mission. We should be able to understand the pinch and pain of others; and so we should not be self-centered individuals. When we are selfless in serving the community we will be the richest achiever, she said.

Salma Sadiqa, Joint Registrar, Karnataka Minority Commission offered all support of the commission to the mission during her felicitation. Prominent journalist Parvez Bari, social activist Shafiulla and Foundation trustee Abdul Wahid Sait also spoke.
