Massive rally marks merger of Mujahideen factions

With several contentious issues between them remaining unresolved, the two major factions of the Kerala Nadvathul Mujahideen (KNM) officially cemented their relationships by holding a massive rally on the Kozhikode beach on Tuesday.

The reunification of the KNM led by T.P. Abdulla Koya Madani and the breakaway faction Kerala Naduvathul Mujahideen (Markazu-DHAVA) led by Hussain Madavoor after their 14-year split saw thousands of activists taking part in the much-awaited historic event.

10 resolutions

As many as 10 resolutions, including call for unity of the Mujahids for the empowerment of the Muslim community and against superstitions and rituals, were adopted at the rally. It also exhorted the activists to resist the designs of the imperialistic-Zionist forces to create an atmosphere of anti-Islam globally.

A resolution opposed the proposal of the BJP-led government at the Centre to implement a common civil code in the guise of doing away with triple talaq.

The rally also decreid the move to take action against religious leaders under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and demanded the authorities to desist from taking action against Peace International School and its managing director M.M. Akbar.
