Muslim quota reduced from 4% to 3% in Telangana: Shabbir Ali

Shabbir Ali Slams CM KCR

Hyderabad, Aug.10 (Maxim News): Former minister Mohammed Ali Shabbir today strongly criticised Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao for not including the photos of Muslim Freedom Fighters in the official Advertisement issued by Telangana Govt on ‘Swatantra Bharat Vajrotsavalu’ published on August 8.

“The TRS govt did not include the picture of any freedom fighter belonging to the Muslim community. Although it is incorrect to identify the freedom fighters, who fought and even laid down their lives for the country’s independence, based on their religion, we are forced to raise the issue when you selectively omitted the pictures of Muslim freedom fighters from the official advertisement. The advertisement was published on the occasion of the anniversary of the Quit India Movement.

But it is highly condemnable that the TRS Govt has not included in its advertisement the picture of Moulana Abul Kalam Azad, who had spent a large portion of his life in jail for his participation in India’s Freedom movement. During the Quit India movement, Moulana Azad was imprisoned from 1942 to 1945 with other senior leaders of the Congress party,” Shabbir Ali told CM KCR in an open letter on Wednesday.


Shabbir Ali alleged that CM KCR’s hatred for the Muslim community and its leaders was no more a secret. The non-inclusion of a picture of any Muslim freedom fighter in the official advertisement for ‘Swatantra Bharat Vajrotsavalu’ has once again exposed the communal mentality of the TRS Govt.

KCR government has so far illegally demolished six mosques and it never apologised for the same. The demolition of Masjid-e-Khaja Mahmood in Shamshabad on August 2 is a recent example. The mosque was illegally demolished and following protest by Muslim organisations and other parties, it ordered its reconstruction.

Shabbir Ali demanded that CM KCR tender an unconditional apology for not including the picture of Muslim freedom fighters in the official advertisement of ‘Swatantra Bharat Vajrotsavalu’ and take necessary action.


“In the previous Congress Govt headed by Dr Y.S. Rajashekhar Reddy, we had named the Godavari River Water scheme as Maulana Abul Kalam Hyderabad Sujala Saravanthi scheme. However, KCR Govt has either changed the name or Moulana Azad’s name is deliberately being avoided,” he alleged.

He also marked a copy of the letter to K. Keshava Rao, MP & Chairman of ‘Swatantra Bharat Vajrotsavalu’ Committee appointed by the State Govt. (Hydnow)

    Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits

    I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
