New Delhi, Apr 1 (UNI) The BJP 'Minority Morcha' will organise its three-day national executive meeting in Hyderabad from April four.
It was being done to send a clear message to BJP's political opponents that acceptability of the party among the Muslims was increasing, Morcha president and former Union Minister Shahnawaz Hussain said.
He said Hyderabad was chosen as venue for the meeting because of its pre-dominant Muslim population. A resolution would be adopted to appeal to the minority to make a new beginning by tying up with the BJP, which would ensure them greater development and protect their rights'' unlike the Congress, which had just befooled the community since Independence.'' Mr Hussain said ever since the BJP had announced party patriarch L K Advani as its prime ministerial candidate, more and more Muslims were looking towards him.
''The minority was aware of the fact that during the NDA regime, when Mr Advani was Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, there was stability in the country,'' he said.
There was no occasion that Muslims complained against Mr Advani for any kind of discrimination and the country remained comparatively peaceful, the leader said.
''Mr Advani's image as Home Minister was a big factor for Muslims to join the BJP,'' he said.
The meeting, which will be attended by many senior BJP leaders, would be inaugurated by former party president M Venkaiah Naidu.
It will tell the minority that the party neither make hollow promises nor believes in appeasement policy but will work for the progress of the Muslims in the country.
