Representatives and Audience of the Convention of AIMC, Mavalankar Hall,New Delhi

After day-long discussion and due deliberation, the convention adopted the following 11-point resolution:

  1. This national convention condemns systematic campaign aimed at demoralizing Muslim youth and others. This national convention resolves to ensure protection of Muslim youth and those belonging to other minorities and weaker sections as a whole---socially, morally, economically, legally etc as enshrined in the Constitution of India.

  2. All unjust and undemocratic laws impinging upon right to life, liberty, expression and association must be repealed forthwith. Laws on sedition must be repealed immediately.

  3. Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967 (UAPA) is a black law. Its presence in the statute book is a blot on the country- bigger than TADA and POTA. Its draconian provisions and their abuse against Muslims, Tribals and other weaker sections of society has attained menacing proportions. UAPA must be repealed immediately.
    The Convention calls upon the government to withdraw Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Bill, 2011, immediately, as the first step. The Convention emphasizes that all anti-terror and other drastic legislations should only be emergency legislations and should not be put on the statute books permanently. They must be subjected to periodic review.

  4. The continuous ban on the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) since 2001 is unjustified, illegal and unconstitutional. Similarly, the declaration of SIMI as "terrorist organization" is also without basis. The ban on SIMI must be lifted immediately and its name should be removed from the schedule of "terrorist organizations" of the UAPA. SIMI must be allowed to function within the constitutional and democratic framework of the country.

  5. Harassment, illegal detention and torture of innocent Muslim youth and those belonging to other communities in the name of fighting terrorism must be stopped. All police and intelligence officials involved in foisting false cases must be prosecuted and punished expeditiously.

  6. Intelligence agencies must have a statutory act ensuring parliamentary control and accountability including audit control by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG). Further, no intelligence agency, including proposed National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), should be given powers to arrest.

  7. All pending cases involving alleged terrorist offences must be subjected to a comprehensive review by a sitting judge of the Supreme Court. The commission should also include cases of harassment, illegal detention and false implication.

  8. Prosecution of all cases under now-defunct TADA and POTA must be closed.

  9. All pending cases involving alleged terrorist offences must be expeditiously disposed of by ordering their hearing on day-to-day basis.

  10. Compensation should be awarded mandatorily to all persons acquitted of terrorist offences.

  11. A comprehensive law providing for reparation for victims and punishment for wrongful prosecutions must be enacted.
This convention decided to launch a campaign named "Movement for Justice" for taking forward the above demands and to secure justice, social, political and economic, for all.
