Millat Bedari Muhim Committee (MBMC), which had supported the Congress during Lok Sabha polls, said that Muslims can do without ‘pseudo appeasement and tokenism which the Congress has been offering during the past few years’.
    
The outfit passed a resolution on Monday describing Antony's statement as a "conspiracy to totally alienate Muslims from Congress and destabilize Sonia's leadership within the party.
    
"Antony's statement has come as a shock to the Muslims who are left behind socially, economically and educationally," MBMC secretary Jasim Mohammad said.
    
Jasim claimed that some ‘Congress-led state governments had in fact tried to 'hoodwink Muslims' by promising to introduce job quotas when they were fully aware that these quotas would be struck down by the courts’.

Antony had earlier said that some sections of the society have an impression that the Congress is inclined towards minority communities.
