Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has urged Home Minister Shushil Kumar Shinde to take effective action against those who spread communal hatred in the country. It also called for the release of Muslim youths who were wrongly implicated in terrorist attacks in the country.
“We welcome the minister’s statement that the poison of hatred and communalism being spread for a long time in the country by organizations like RSS and BJP should be brought to an end,” said Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari, president of Jamaat.
Shinde had pointed out that the Hindu communal organizations are promoting terrorism through their camps.
“The minister should take practical steps in the light of information provided by his department and other investigative agencies. He should order a high-level investigation into the arrest of innocent Muslim youths who have been wrongly implicated in bomb blasts and violent incidents, which in fact were handiwork of communalists,” the Jamaat leader said.
The innocent youths should be released and the real culprits should be appropriately dealt with, Umari told reporters. “Thorough investigation should be made about Bhonsala Military School in Nashik, Abhinav Bharat, Sanatan Sanstha and different Hindu forces and every source of communalism and terrorism should be closed,” the Jamaat leader said.
Expressing serious concern over the violence against women across the country, Umari said, “It is a matter of great concern that women, who are half of humanity, are unsafe in our country and incidents of sexual attacks on them and rapes are continuously taking place. For the lasting solution of the problem, the concept of respect to humanity and respect to women should be promoted on strong footing. Islam, first of all, lays stress on cleansing of thoughts and hearts. The Holy Qur’an has emphasized avoiding evil glances and protecting modesty and chastity. To achieve this, we should inculcate fear of God and sense of responsibility and accountability before God.
Umari said the Jamaat is of the view that this problem cannot be solved just by legislation. “A durable solution can be achieved only through a basic change in our thoughts and by creating practical changes in our society.”
On Dhule riots, the president said, “a small altercation on a petty issue took the shape of a communal conflict in Dhule, Maharashtra. Police acted in a partisan way, used excessive power and killed six Muslim youths by resorting to point blank firing. In all 42 persons were injured in firing. It is clear from the video footages and through the photos published that the police did not fire to control the mob but to kill with vengeance as it directly fired on the upper parts of body. According to the fact-finding report and investigative reports by newspapers, the attitude of police was openly partisan, atrocious and communal. We strongly feel that this attitude of police is fraught with grave dangers for the future of the country.”
Demanding unbiased investigation into these deplorable events, Umari called on the central government to take steps to reform police and castigate the communal elements inside it. “We also demands that a judicial inquiry of this incident through a high court judge should be ordered and the report should be submitted within a specific time, appropriate compensation should be given to the relatives of the persons killed and injured and stringent action should be taken against the erring police officers,” he added.
