Badruddin Ajmal

The Indian National Congress government at the centre appointed Sachar Committee and its report has focused the attention of the community to the issues of socio-economic backwardness and unity with the backward section of the society. It is a formidable challenge to the secular-democratic section of the community to stay focused on issues of social justice and equality. The Sachar Committee report has the revolutionized whole concept of the policy making towards Muslims.[4] Since the report saw the light of the day, the government has launched several fresh schemes which are gradually benefiting the backward Muslims.

Against such backdrop, the Ajmal-lead AIUDF had managed to win 18 seats in the 2011 Legislative Assembly election. [5] which resulted the party to become more zealous as self styled guardians of Assamese people in general and Muslims in particular.[6]

Flag and Symbol[edit]
