Thousands of delegates from different parts of the state and from various sectors of society like Business, Agriculture, Teaching, etc. took part in the conference.
The backwardness of Muslims and minorities is still remain unsolved. The findings of several commissions and their suggestions should be in the primary consideration of both state and central governments. Kerala Muslim Jamath will take initiative to propose these matters in front of the authority. Every organisations should stand together for this.
Every project for sustainable development and prosperity would be backed. And will defend the vested interests to misinterpret Muslim community in the plural society. For that, academic summits, seminars and colloquium will be conducted nationwide. We have to check out the communal forces and their polarization which have been disintegrating our nation. People should be aware of their agenda. We will have to arrange people`s parliaments to disclose communal plans to destroy the composite culture of our society.

Along with educational packages, KMJ will concentrate on rehabilitation and natural disaster management.
