Help spread the truth about Telangana region of India. Since 1956, when Andhra and Telangana merged, Telangana has gotten the short end of the stick in terms of natural resources, funding and representation in government. Though two major rivers have their sources in Telangana, irrigation projects divert the precious water to other areas. The feelings have often spilled over into violence, and in 1969, 400 people died in Telangana-related violence.

Muslims in Nizamabad for Telangana state

The Muslims were more upset after the MIM stand against Telangana during the allparty meeting in Delhi on Jan 5. Political observers said being the only political outfit of Muslim minorities in the state, the MIM has failed to catch the pulse of the community at a time when a majority of them are actively taking part in the ongoing T-movement in the districts. The Muslim minorities of Telangana region are livid at the Majlis-e-Ittehadul-Muslimeen (MIM) party for its prolonged silence on the T-issue.Almost all minority organizations like Jamaat-Islami-Hind, Jamaat Ulema-e-Hind, Movement for Peace and Justice, Students Islamic Organization and others have already extended their unequivocal support for separate Telangana.     Muslim leaders and activists, irrespective of political ideologies, have been sitting on relay hunger strikes and staging dharnas in support of Telangana at Nehru Park in Nizamabad town in the last 15 days.  Muslim population is sizable in Nizamabad, Bodhan, Kamareddy areas in Nizamabad district, Bhainsa, Adilabad and Nirmal in Adilabad and Karimnagar, Jagityal, Korutla, Metpalli and Peddapalli in Karimnagar districts.
