Anna’s Methodology unacceptable to Muslims

which seeks to impose its draft of Jan Lokpal Bill on the country.In a statement they said that the same method could be used tomorrow to pressurize the Government and the Parliament to ‘concede unreasonable, even unconstitutional demands’.

“Democracy demands Parliamentary supremacy in the field of legislation which should be based on national consensus emerging out of discussion and dialogue. No Committee or group or party can claim to have absolute wisdom or script the last word” the statement said.

They are of the view that the creation of a single entity to fight all kinds of corruption at all levels ‘is not a correct approach’ because such a mega authority, amounting to a super-government or a parallel government, will be impracticable and crumble under its own weight and breed new sources of corruption.

They agreed that corruption in judiciary should also be tackled but separately and for that reason it should not come under the purview of the common Lokpal. ‘Its independence cannot be allowed to be undermined’.

“The corporate sector, the NGOs, the professional classes and the mass media must also be made accountable through separate legal mechanisms to Lokapal-like controls”, the Muslim leaders demanded.

They felt that the existing mechanism of Lokayukt, the CVC and the CBI should be strengthened and freed from government control. At meeting they also suggested that basic political and electoral reforms were essential, to create a corruption-free super-structure of governance.

The statement issued after meeting called by the All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat (AIMMM) and was attended by representatives of Jamaat-e Islami Hind, Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadees, All India Milli Council, Welfare Party of India, Muslim Political Council, Students Islamic Organisation, however, said that Muslim community as a weaker section must fully support any movement to reduce and eliminate corruption in the country.

“It supports the idea that the proposed Lokpal should cover the political executive, including the Prime Minister and the higher Bureaucracy and the Legislators should also be brought under the purview of a strong and effective Lokpal”.
