Press Release: MPN Condemns Anti-India Slogans and Discourage Muslim Youth from Participating in Any Misguided Protests

Muslim Professionals Network of India is an independent body that provides social platform for the professionals working in the various industries such as IT, finance, medicine, law etc. to connect, collaborate and act towards the inclusive development and growth of our nation. Formed in 2013, MPN has taken up various projects and initiatives to promote employment and job creation among Muslim Professionals. Also, over the years MPN has focussed considerable effort in charitable activities in areas such as Education, Health and Natural Calamities.

MPN strongly condemns any anti-India slogans or protests and discourage any Muslim Students or professionals participating in the same. We recognize that, there is strong anti-government sentiment among Muslim Youth & Professionals after series of misadventures by BJP Government. The extremist right-wing forces want Muslim Youth to protest against BJP Government and then portray such protests as anti-national activities. Some sections of the media have fallen into this trap of right-wing forces. So, it’s extremely important for Muslim Youth, especially professionals to remain cautious in this hostile situations.

MPN strongly suggests the Muslim Youth to focus on education and career Development. These are the testing times for the minorities in our great nation and despite the discrimination and intolerance, we must emerge as winners. We must exhibit compassion even in hostile situations and overcome the challenges through persistent effort and ethical honesty. MPN is also reaching to various Muslim Professionals across companies to not indulge in unproductive discussions about intolerance, freedom of speech, etc. Such discussions aren’t going to help and might actually result in further discrimination.

“Muslim Professionals across India must learn from the rise and success of Satya Nadella of Microsoft and Sundar Pichai of Google. There is absolute need for Muslim Professionals to rise up in their careers and emerge as leaders of major multi-nationals in India and abroad. MPN strongly encourages Muslim youth towards entrepreneurship and take a crack to disrupt global & Indian markets with innovative ideas. Excelling in existing careers and job creation must are our two key focus areas. This is the need of the hour for the community.” says Mohammed Abubakr, the newly elected President of MPN. Abubakr was previously with Microsoft and now running his start-up in healthcare space.

“Its high time that Muslim youth take control of their own future and not be swayed by others”, said Javed Sikander, Former President and Founding member of MPN. “That future is about education, hard work and development” he added.

“Muslim Youth should not indulge in any anti India activities, do not join such protests.
