  1. On August 2, 1994, the All India Milli Council launched a public movement through its All India Anti-TADA convention at Ambedkar Auditorium, New Delhi, to repeal the  inhuman law of TADA.It later on converted into 'Peoples Movement of India (PMI) which gained very effective support not only from prominent lawyers, legal experts, Human Rights Organisations, Ulama and intellectuals and leaders of various Muslim organisations The Milli Council also rejected the new Bill (the Criminal Law Amendment Bill, 1995) introduced in Parliament. Ultimately, this draconian law was repealed on May 23, 1995 with the untiring efforts of the All India Milli Council.

  2. On December 3, 1994 an All India Convention on "Communal Violence and Enforcement of Law" was held under the aegis of the All India Milli Council. More than 300 delegates from Delhi and other states participated in the convention. It is one of the basic objectives of the AIMC to mobilise the public opinion for curbing the tendencies of ever increasing fascism, communal hatred and violence, and to promote freternal feelings among all the cultural and religious units in India.

  3. The 'All India Deeni Madaris Convention' was held on 23-25,1994 at 'Aiwan-e- Ghalib' and 'Bachchon Ka Ghar', Daryaganj, New Delhi under the aegis of AIMC. It addressed itself to three Main Issues: (i) to remove all conflicts existing among the various Madrasas in the country. (ii) to make the syllabi of the Madrasas uptodate and preparing the students to carry out 'Dawah' in regional languages (iii) to ward off the false allegations of the communal fascist forces alongwith the government that have started a conspiracy to declare the Madrasas as the breeding grounds for ISI agents and anti-national activities.

  4. Under its Educational Scholarship Scheme, the AIMC awarded Rs.1,24,500/- to 249 students of class VI from various states in the academic year 1994-1995, Rs.2,00,000 among 89 students for Technical and Professional Courses during 1995-96 and Rs.3,03,000/- to 194 students from Assam, Bihar, Orissa, W.B., U.P., Rajasthan, Maharashtra & Andhra Pradesh etc. enrolled in Medical, Engineering, B.Pharma, Polytechnic and different courses of ITI etc. in the academic session 1996-1997.

  5. The All India Milli Council has also worked for providing relief to people affected by natural calamities.

  6. The circular of the Chief Election Commission of India dated May 18,1993 created a havoc in the Muslim Community as it was meant to delete some 22,000 Muslim names from the electoral roll of Assam. The AIMC recorded its strongest ever protest against this move. On Dec. 10, 1993, a high-level delegation of the Milli Council called on Mr. T.N. Seshan, the then Chief Election Commissioner. Unfortunately, Mr. Seshan refused to review the circular. Thereupon the Milli Council filed a writ petition in the High court against the circular.   The H.C declared the circular totally unconstitutional on January 28, 1994. The CEC appealed to the Supreme Court against the judgement. But the Supreme Court upheld the judgement of the High Court on May 15, 1994. Thus, the 22,000 Muslim voters of Assam were saved from being declared foreigners with the efforts of the All India Milli Council.

  7. The All India Milli Council, in connection with the 50th year celebrations of nation's Independence, organised a 48-day Karvan-e-Azadi which toured major cities, towns and rural areas of 17 states of the country. On Sept. 21, 1997 the Karvan started its national-level journey from Srirangapatnam, Mysore (Karnataka), led by Quazi Mujahidul Islam Quasmi, Secretary General, AIMC, and paid homages to the great martyrs and others who sacrificed  their lives fighting against the Britishers on May 4, 1799. The Karvan by traversing the length and breadth of the country tried not only to arouse a new zeal in the hearts of the Muslims but also coveyed true meanings of freedom, democracy and secularism to the people of India. The Karvan through its historical journey highlighted the sacrifices  offered by the Muslims in the freedom struggle. The Karvan brought forth the historical deeds of Muslim freedom-fighters which had been kept back intentionally. It also unearthed the conspiracies aiming at oblerating the glorious contribution of Muslims in the freedom struggle. It asked the Muslims to develop self-confidence and lead a courageous and bold life. The karvan (Freedom March) concluded at Delhi on Nov.7, 1997. These efforts of the Milli Council were appreciated by all and at every place the Karvan was accorded warm welcome by members of all committies.
    The Milli Council, through this grand exercise of intellectual renaissance not only highlighted the historical role of the Muslims in the freedom struggle, their political, cultural and social contributions and achievement but also presented the National Agenda for the development of the country. Through the National Agenda it was conveyed that the present political system of the country was totally decayed.To mark the golden jublee year of   independence, the AIMC brought out a set of 15 books and booklets alongwith audio-cassettes throwing light on the contribution of the largest minority community to the independence struggle.The most remarkable point was the demonstration of the spirit of composite heritage everywhere the Karvan visited. A 37-page White Paper was released addressed to the Central and State governments, national and state legislatures, political parties, judiciary, media, Human Rights Organisations and the intelligentia. The White Paper throws light on what we gained and lost during the last 50 years from the Muslims' point of view. The AIMC believes that the only solution to the ills affecting the country is Federalism. The idea of Federalism was incorporated in the country's constitution,but excessive centralisation of power displayed by successive governments in Dehli has obscured the federal character of India. The Karavan-e-Azadi presented  a memorundum of demands before government and the masses and expressed in no uncertain terms that the largest minority of the country which offered exemplary sacrifices in the freedom struggle will also be in  the fore-front in the exercise of the reconstruction and progress of the country.

  8. I On Jan. 25, 1993, a one-member Srikrishna Enquiry Commission was constituted to probe into the dreaded killing of Muslims in Mumbai during the infamous Communal riots of Dec. 6, 1992 and Jan. '93 after the demolition of the Babri Masjid. The AIMC acted immediately and decided on Feb. 4, 1993 to represent the victims before the Commission. The Milli Council constituted a 4-member Committee under the leadership of the renowned lawyer, Mr. Y.H. Muchhala. This committee also included the famous criminal lawyer, Mr. Noor Mohammed Bhasker, Mr. Sayeed Kurro (Advocate) and Mr. Saifuddin (Advocate). The committee played a significant role in arranging and producing witnesses before the commission during the course of enquiry and very successfully sought justice for the victims. The Milli Council guided this committee at every stage and met a large part of the expenses incurred therein.
