(MENAFN - Arab News) The son of the late Indian Muslim leader Ebrahim Sulaiman Sait, and national secretary of the Indian Union Muslim League, has vowed to strengthen his party across India to protect the rights of Muslims and help them play a significant role in the country.
"In New Delhi we now have coalition governments. If we can win 10 parliamentary seats all over India we will become a big force to be reckoned with. We'll become part of the ruling front and can demand more for the community," Siraj Sait told Arab News.
"We should have a definite plan of action. We should choose constituencies where Muslims are a sizeable part of the population, select 30 constituencies and work hard from Punchayat level and focus on Muslim pockets. If we work for 10 years with a specific game plan we will achieve this number."
The young Muslim leader, who is in the Kingdom for Umrah, said he would pray for the whole world to become a better place.
"What I've learned from my father is that you have to ask Allah [to help] the Ummah before asking for yourself, because you are a member of the Ummah," he said.
He said the Kerala Muslim Cultural Center (KMCC) invited him to attend a presentation of their Baith Al-Rahma project in Riyadh. They plan to establish about 200 homes for the poor in Kerala, he said.

The charismatic leader, reminiscent of his father, said he would work to strengthen Muslim unity across the country, which boasts a Muslim population of nearly 200 million.
"What we lack is political unity, except in a few pockets such as Kerala, Assam and Andhra Pradesh. Unity will help us achieve political strength, education and economic progress." Muslims have been facing many problems in India, he said. "We have to make an effort to solve them using our resources and capabilities."
He described the drive to become prime minister by Narendra Modi - who was allegedly responsible for the carnage of Muslims in Gujarat - as the biggest danger facing the country. He urged the Congress Party to shoulder its responsibility to counter the challenge posed by Modi.
He said it was difficult to achieve political unity among Muslims in India because 80 percent of them live in poverty. "We have to provide them the basic necessities of life. I will try my best to strengthen the league to solve many of the problems facing Muslims."
