Solidarity Youth Movement, the vibrant youth wing of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind in Kerala organised a grand conference at Calicut on January 10. The conference based on the theme “Youth is for struggle” was attended by more than 25,000 people, including thousands of women. The rally held in the city prior to the conference was attended by 6000 youth and was decorated with many floats on themes of contemporary importance.

Mr T Arif Ali, Ameer JIH Kerala circle, inaugurated the conference. He demanded that the ongoing aggression of Israel over Palestine has to be stopped at the earliest unilaterally. India, a country having a heritage of long years should come forward to lead the anti-imperial bloc of the world and ask and exert pressure on Israel to stop the massacre.

Mr Arif Ali also clarified that the entry of JIH into the political realm of the country cannot be stopped through mere rumour mongering. Jamaat had acted creatively in Indian politics from the early times of emergency. He asked those religious and secular groups opposing the entry of Jamaat into politics to study the stances of Mahatma Gandhi about Democracy and Secularism. Gandhiji had described parliamentary democracy as “barren” and democracy as “prostitute”. Gandhiji had also articulated democracy as the best toy a country can get. But nobody called him anti-national. He also negated the western approach that distanced religious values from the public spheres. Jamaat also has the same approaches of Gandhiji on these issues. It always tries to get light from the divine book that could be expanded according to the civilizational progresses, he added.

Talking on the occasion, Mr O Abdurahaman, Editor Malayalam daily Madhyamam said the need of hour is a political activism based on peace and justice.

Renowned activist C R Neelakantan, JIH State Secretary K K Zuhra, Solidarity State President P Mujeeb Rahman also spoke.

Two Audio CDs of Solidarity songs were released. GRO Vasu, K Ajitha, Adv Thomas, V Kunhali, P N Das, Rafi Puthiya Kadvu, P C Basheer, S Qamarudheen, T Mohammed, K Mohammed Najeeb, Khalid Moosa Nadwi, Abdu Razak Paleri and T K Juman were present on the dais.
