Elections 2009: Will Majlis lose Hyderabad?


For the first time in decades the hegemony of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) seems to be under a serious threat in Hyderabad.

Zahid Ali Khan, the editor of the renowned Urdu daily Siasat, who has been involved with social work, is contesting the election as an independent candidate. He has managed to get the support of virutally every party on the political spectrum.

The Majlis remains strong but this is the first election after the demise of veteran Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi and his son sitting MP Asaduddin may not find it a cakewalk as it was in the 2004 elections when his father had vacated the constituency for him and he managed to reach the Parliament.

Zahid Ali Khan is seen a progressive leader. He has the right credentials and has managed a rainbow coalition with half-a-dozen parties supporting him. These parties have decided not to field any candidate in support of Khan.

The Leftists, Chiranjeevi's Praja Rajyam, Telugu Desam Party (TDP), K Chandrashekhar Rao's TRS and several other parties have come out in Khan's support. Their aim is to finish Majlis' stronghold on Hyderabad.

Though it is believed that despite the middle-class and educated class openly speaking in favour of Zahid Ali Khan and opposting the hooliganism by Majlis cadre, the masses may still vote for Majlis.

Khan says that he is fighting a corrupt and communal party that has not brought any change to the lives of even ordinary Muslims for which it claims to speak.

Siasat is considered one of the most respected newspapers and has played an important role in Muslim society in the Deccan. However, it is felt that despite the grand alliance which Khan seems to have forged, it may not translate into votes. PHOTO: Asaduddin Owaisi (Right)

Assault on Zahid Ali Khan turned the tables
It was the attack on Khan that had led to widespread condemnation. It was suspected that Majlis cadre were involved in the incident. Subsequently, Khan became the rallying point of all anti-MIM parties.

However, if the non-Muslim voters throw their weight behind the joint opposition candidate [Khan], Owaisi may have a tough time. Twice in the past, BJP candidates have managed to secure over 4 lakh votes and had once nearly given a shock to the late Salahuddin Owaisi.

If these votes go to Khan apart from part of the Muslim vote, then Owaisi is in serious trouble. BJP is yet to decide whether to field any candidate from Hyderabad. It has been urged not to fileld any candidate to facilitate Khan's victory and in process end the Majlis' hegemony.

The Majlis has in early years played a role in the politics of Hyderabad. After the police action, it was involved in social work and after Abdul Wahid Owaisi, his son Salahuddin who was termed Salar-e-Millat won Assembly election for over decades .

Later Owaisi became invincible as fropm 1984 till 2004 he never lost the Parliamentary election. However, there is strong criticism of the family-centric party that revolves around Owaisis. The official party website mentions even Asaduddin and his brother Akbaruddin as Legends.

The Owaisis had to start an Urdu paper Etemaad to hold sway on people and counter the other influential Urdu dailies--Munsif and Siasat along with Rahnuma-e-Deccan that had joined hands and were opposing Majlis' role.

But MIM hopes that after the recent delimitation the rise is Muslim votes in the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constitutency, it has an edge even in wort case scenerio. The party had successfully faced a challenge from Amanullah Khan's Majlis Bachao Tehrik [MBT] in the past. It remains to be seen if the editor-turned-politician manages to stage a coup.

INSHALLAH
ZAHED ALI KHAN will win because he is the right person who does social work inspite of not being in politics.
may ALLAH give him success
Owasi group of family is just making money by the politics
they dont want muslims to be educated if muslim gets educated they will not become in power and by keeping the muslims in the slum by not developing the oldcity and these people stay in developed areas like banjara hills, himayat nagar in corers of houses made by the money of poor muslims. they only take votes by making devotional speaches of well known great muslims all over the world who have served the muslim community but they will never speak about the developement they have made in their assembly constituency. after comming in power they never come to oldcity they only come for inagurations & marriage invitations thats all..
i want to make people awake and make their votes to the correct persons tehy think would develope their area. from past 50 years mim is ruling and not doing any benifit to any comunity they just eat away the money santioned by the governament for the development of the oldcity
Chandrababu naidu has made airport in oldcity & is looking forward for the developement of the oldcity by bringing Big shoppingmalls & Resturants in oldcity which really lack in oldcity.
this MIM people dont want Oldcity to develope & make people fool nd eat the money which is given for the developement of oldcity as they are in fear that if muslims get educated they will cast their vote by thinking on devlopement of their constituency they think they can make muslims FOOL by giving name of ALLAH & MESSENGER OF ALLAH
i conclude by saying please cast your vote in correct way to correct person who u think will develope ur area
i think T.D.P is looking forward for the DEVELOPEMENT of OLDCITY so u people think over it and cast ur vote to right person only mim is not the muslim person but the people standing from other parties are also muslims from OLDCITY u give onechance to T.D.P & feel the diffrence
thank u & please cast ur vote to correct person U think

Its not a question of Zahid ALI Khan Winning OR Asad owaisi LOOSING.We dont want Asad to just win Elections but we want him to defeat these opportunists who just for their personal grudge want to disturb the whole community.Defeat them once for all and dont leave them after electipns also.Stop Being so nice you cannot make everybody happy.KHAN Lateef khan took munsif coz he was defeated in Nizam clubs president election by Zahid ali khan.He once was enemy of zahid.People should know the facts.Noone can beleive that the sons of Late Amanullah khan can b well wisher of the community when the even cannot do well for the locality,where they live(Till date they have mushtaq malik is acting president coz they cant trust anybody).Zahid ali khan too have personal problems with AKBER OWAISI,though in that case it was noway related to akber(if ZAHID ALI KAHN OR HIS FAMILY MEMBERS READ THEY CAN UNDERSTAN WHAT I MEAN."isharon ko agar samjo to raaz ko raaz rahne do".)Anways lot of NGOS do social sevice but they always not run for election,You should have some +++qualites for being a political representative of community. In NOWAY ZAHID ALI KHAN HAVE IT.
Inshallah AIMIM will win all the constituencies where they are contesting.

As-Salam-Alikum,
If anybody remember the DUA of Asadudding Owasi when once he done on the event of Jummatul Vida in Mecca Masjid he prayed to Allah to dethrow TDP out of power by shivering in his body, if you see the DUA which he done on the occassion Miladun Nabi at Darussalam on 8th March with a lot of shivering and cry in front of "bargah-E-Elahi" Iam confident Inshallah "Huzoor ke sadke wa tufool see" god will oblige his DUA and give Majils Inshallah 8 Assembly Seats. Malakpet Muslims should show their Unity this time.

Hyderabadi Muslims are smart enough to elect Asad Owaisi. I ment Asad Owaisi in USA, he gave me very good impression, he is honest, able and bold leader. We need this young and talented leadership. Zahid Ali Khan is backed by people who don't know about Hyderabad people and politics and just want to see MIM downside. Khan Lateef Khan is backing Zahid. Everyone knows how KLK accquire his wealth by cheating and marrying two lady doctors. If you look his background from Nizam college and onwards. True leader is Asad Owaisi, we should all back him in upcomming elections. Inshallah Allah will black the gface of Zahid Khan and KLK. They are trying to divide muslims.
GO with MIM...

May Allah give more seats to MIM in AP and India.

Ameeen

Neither Zahid Khan will win nor MIM will win. A BJP candidate with 10% of Hindu votes will win.

Majlis is a communal party involved in tasleema incident and riots. It must be defeated.

Its only MIM due to which people of old city live like kings.No one can dare to point out anyone when these ppl are with us. People will realize their value only after they loose them..Inshallah..MIM will win with a big majority..Ameen

To Hyderabadi Muslims :
VOTE FOR CHANGE - CHANGE IS ALLWAYS GOOD - INSTILLS ACCOUNTABILITY AND FEAR AND DEMANDS RESULTS.
This is not against ASAD UDDIN OWAISI OR ZAHID ALI KHAN.
It is high time we the muslims of the Hyderabad retospect and see where we stand and who we should vote for.
Things to be considered before we cast our vote:
DONT VOTE BY LISTENING TO SPEECHES - Sick and tired of same hollow promises and inflamatory religious touch [ Refering prophet pbuh and Nare-Takbeer ].
What have you done in last 5 years ?
Dont talk about your forefathers acheivements? or your forefathers forefathers? Tell how many times did you visit the contituency in last 5 years?
Show us where's the contituency development fund spent - Not on your coterie or your workers?
How easily were you acessible to the same people with whome you are begging votes now only to return after next 5 years?
Where were you when the people of your own community were fighting among themselves for basic ameneties like water / roads / lights and whole lot of politico legal issues ......?
What issues did you raise for the community in last 5 years and what are your acheivements in the last parliament for your community in particular and society in general?
How much did your personal wealth increase in last 5 years?How much did your balance increase in Swiss A/c and other benami A/c's?
How well did u exploited the uneducated illiterate masses of your community ?
Our own loving city - The Great City of Hyderabad is the oldest - world renowned but howcome i still find New City / Secunderabad /Cyberabad all catching up the IT revolution Why was your constituency left behind? What was your role or effort - A mute spectator ? Or a Happy Politician keeping an eye on election 2009 - So that you can still exploit the uneducated illiterate masses.
On what parameter are you selecting the current candidates ?
[ Education / Money Power / Muscle Power / Loyalty - Your Peons or absolutely no parameter ]
WAKE UP O HYDERABADIS WAKE UP
CHANGE IS NEEDED
CHANGE IS IMMINENT
GOD WILL NOT HELP THOSE WHO DO NOT SEEK HELP.
LOOK FOR ALTERNATIVES ONCE SO THAT WHO EVER COMES UP THIS TIME SHOULD HAVE THE FEAR OF FACING YOU AGAIN THE NEXT TIME.
DONT LET THESE COMMUNITY LEADERS TAKE YOU FOR GRANTED.
MAKE THEM REALIZE THEY ARE ANSWERABLE.
Dont get carried away by hot religious speeches or fear of loosing to communal parties.Religion card can no longer be played in secular INDIA.
Religion weather it is used by BJP or any other party is not going to fetch any good in terms of vote conversion for the simple fact that we are living in a true devolped world.
So lets stop thinking on religious lines - Even if hard core Hindu fundamentalists form govt they cant remove all the muslims from the map of India for the simple fact that it is impossible - Unless and untill God the Almighty destines so and if it destined so then no force on this earth can stop it either.

Abdu,

Either you don't know Old hyderabad or you think others don't know. Who lives like kings? MIM guys? yes. Not common man, muslim or hindu in these areas. What development took place under these MIM guys? Vote for Development and Hope. Not those who have been only fooling old city muslims along with congress.

Muslim candidates fail to attract Hindu votes. In constituensies where the population of Muslims is more than 30% it is seen that there are many muslim candidates contesting against each other which results in the division and fragmentation of muslim votes. This ultimately leads to their defeat, while a lone candidate from the BJP or Shiv Sena will win the election as the Hindu vote gets consolidated in their favour.

Assalamu Alaikum Dear Brothers…If we are giving vote to MIM just because they are muslims then its not a wise decision..as MIM knows very well that our Hyderabadi muslims will act in Josh not in hosh and they knew they will get vote just because the MIM leaders are muslims…When any poor muslim brother or sister try for MBBS seat these leaders say all rubbish to them..so no poor family will have any aim of MBBS seat…Bhai zara soonchiyai 50 saal mai kya tarkhi howi hai..At the end of 5 years these Leaders inaugrate all water lines construction, drainage lines, street lights and few schools and publish them in the newspaper as how much they are spending…MIM knows well kai agar khaom padhi likhi hojaygi tu inki seat chale jayegi..isiliyai ek rickshaw walai ka beta rick shaw chala sakta hai koi naukri nahi karsakta..thalai walai ka beta thaila laga sakta hai school nahi jasakta…They have nominated Balala from Malakpet …He is famour for sud khoor…He was previously a corporate from Charminiar…Why dint MIM selected any person from Malakpet…qismat pur ronai sai pehalai tadbeer karni chahiya…is waqt josh sai ziada hosh sai kaam lijiyai…ek galti 5 saal tak katai rahegi.baad mai afsoos kai siwa kuch nahi rahega…MIM kai jazbati bayanat mashoor hain.khaas kai akber kai…kash yeh jazbati bayanat deen kai liyai hotai…All MIM Leaders earn sud ki kamai, haram kamai..and so on…tu kis angle sai yeh log hamari rehnumai karaigi…yeh baat mashoor hai kai akber owaisi nai amaullah khan ko haranai youngsters ko 1000 rupees diyai thai….agar allah pur itna yakheen hai tu yeh neechi hurkatai mat karo aur mukhabla karo…zahid ali khan was not a MP or MLA but he did a lot for the muslims as much as he can..agar iqtedar ka laluch hota to wo pehlai atai…65 yrs mai nahi……merai bhai..agar meri baat buri lagi tu mafi chahta hoon..agai aap ki marzi…fi amanillah

Assalam alaikum,
I feel this time Zahed ali khan should be voted, its like new employer in a company where he works more dedicatedly and honestly. where as the senior employer works in comfort zone.
I personally feel Akbar should not be voted at all, he feel and wants us to be fools by provoking such inflamatery speaches. anoher waste candidate is Ahmed pasha quadri, he is good for nothing, use less, base less etc. He was seen twice in our area, once for last voting campaign and next for promoting Etemaad paper. apart from him, Balala is famous of intrest business, akbar for his land grabing. when akbar cracks a joke during his speech our people shouts "nare takbir".
guys ..unless they live with us how can they think about our problems.
Atleast Zahid ali khan had done some good social work..what MIM did? They pull lakhs and crores of money from engineering, medical college and limitless from land grabging cases.
