Muslims of Uttar Pradesh, including former bureaucrats, retired judges, journalists and social activists have formed a peace forum in Lucknow to fight against the divisive forces.

With Maulana Zahir Ahmed Siddiqui as its president the Forum plans to coordinate with various individuals and groups, institutions and organisations and to “channelise the energies of the community in a constructive manner.”

The forum aims to address the basic problems of the community – education and health – instead of allowing them to be acting as a vote bank, Maulana Zahir informed the reporters.

“We have no boundaries and we are willing to coordinate with any and every group that is genuinely interested in the welfare and uplift of the minorities,” added Maulana Zahir Ahmed.
