Jamaat-e-Islami Hind expresses concern over reports of spying on citizens

New Delhi, 22 July 2021: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has expressed concern over reports of spying on Indian citizens.

 

In a statement to the media, JIH Vice President Prof Salim Engineer said: “We are shocked to read the reports about a large number of Indian citizens coming under surveillance using spyware sold by an Israeli company. This is very damaging to our fundamental rights like the right to privacy, safety and security, and human dignity as guaranteed by the Constitution of India. If the spyware was deployed by some state agency then it is not the characteristic of a welfare but a police state. It would have been a great service to the nation had the money been spent on poverty alleviation rather than spying on citizens. A cursory glance at the list of people allegedly targeted by the spyware gives credence to the suspicion that the surveillance was carried out with not the most honorable of intentions.”

 

Expressing utmost concern over the episode that poses a great danger to the health of democracy, the JIH Vice President has demanded an inquiry into these reports by a JPC or by the Supreme Court and expects the government of India to come clean on the entire issue. He asked, “An important question that begs an answer – did any Indian agency purchase the spyware from Israel and use it for snooping on citizens of India?”
