Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), which claims to be born after Indian Independence in 1948, is actually an off-shoot of Pakistan founder and Islamist Mohammad Ali Jinnah's All India Muslim League (AIML).
Rahul Gandhi was on the hunt for a a safe seat in the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections after Smriti Irani laid siege to the Nehru-Gandhi Parivar bastion of Amethi. Towards that end, he chose Wayanad in Kerala as his preferred second seat.
One of Congress support in Wayanad emanates from IUML which in turn is tied up with Jammat-e-Islami and SDPI, both accused by NIA in conducting arms training camps across the state under the pretence of health awareness camps.
Congress Party has finally arrived at a decision to field Rahul Gandhi from Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency as it is believed to be a traditional Congress bastion comprising of over 50 per cent of minority votes.
