Asks Sonia Gandhi and Election Commission for his immediate reinstatement
By Muslim Mirror News
New Delhi: The All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat has come out in support of M. W. Ansari IPS who was abruptly sacked from the post of the Secretary of the Maulana Azad Education Foundation and asked his reinstatement as quickly as possible.  Deploring the abrupt and hasty action taken by the Minister of Minority Affairs K Rehman Khan, Mushawarat on Monday said that removal of an upright and honest officer in the midst of elections has sent wrong a   message to the country and community. It also sent a letter to UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi protesting the sacking of Ansari in the most unconstitutional manner even without any proper enquiry. It is being mentioned here that Muslim Mirror was the first news portal which broke news of Ansari’s sacking.
President of AIMMM Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan said it is a clear violation of the model code of the election as the minister had only a few days left in office.  “The abrupt and untimely removal of an efficient and honest officer sends a very wrong message to the country and community”. Dr Khan has written in this respect to the Chief Election Commissioner and Sonia Gandhi asking for a quick reversal of this hasty and wrong decision and reinstatement of the honest officer who had brought life back to the Maulana Azad Educational Foundation. In his letter to Sonia Gandhi, he pointed out  that  “despite the Election Commission’s Model Code of Conduct which prohibits Union and state governments to make any appointment or promotion during the period of elections, the Union Minority Minister has found it appropriate to summarily sack an upright IPS officer who was serving as Secretary of the Maulana Azad Education Foundation which is a major central government organisation working for the educational and social upfilt of the minorities”.
He further said “The officer in question, Mr MW Ansari, who holds the post of the Director General of Police of Chattisgarh but was still serving this institution on deputation in order to serve the community. Observers say that after many years, this organisation had such a no-nonsense, efficient Secretary who got a lot done within a short period of time while earlier the organization was known for sheer ineffectiveness, laziness and corruption”.
The letter pointed out that “According to our information, the Minister was nursing a grudge against Mr Ansari for asking for accounts of certain amounts of the organization spent by the Minister, so he used an unproven case of renovation of the Foundation’s new premises at allegedly inflated cost to sack Mr Ansari unceremoniously though, if needed, the allegation could have been properly investigated allowing Mr Ansari to place on record his side of the story”.
