Chain of Custodial Deaths

The inhuman, barbaric killing of Khalid Mujahid in the custody of Uttar Pradesh Police has once again exposed the dubious terror probes and custodial tortures to accused. Since the very first day, leading Muslim organizations and NGOs have protested against the arrest of deceased Khalid Mujahid and Tariq Qasmi. In its enquiry report 2012, RD Nimesh Commission has also cast doubt over the role of police. Notwithstanding, Khalid Mujahid died in mysterious circumstances in the custody of state government. His death has exposed the cruel face of the police, on one hand, and has put a question mark on the intentions of the election manifesto of ruling Samajwadi Party wherein it had promised to release innocent Muslim youths arrested in terror cases.

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind feels that even though the report of Nimesh Commission on the arrest of Khalid Mujahid and Tariq Qasmi looks satisfactory but the very long time the Commission took in preparation of the report, which was in itself against the demands of justice. And the fragile hope of justice was finished by the indifference and ignorance of the government. While the report was leaked in the media the government neither tabled it in the Assembly nor did take any clear and effective measure for the releases of innocent Khalid Mujahid and Tariq Qasmi.

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind feels that it is not just the brutal death of an innocent, oppressed noble youth, it is also a murder of human rights and outrage of the soul of justice, law and constitution. Jamaat strongly demands the Uttar Pradesh Government to award reasonable compensation to the family of Khalid Mujahid because he was in the custody and protection of the government but it could not ensure him justice and protect his life. The government should arrest and prosecute the police officers who falsely arrested and implicated him in terror case, and the jail officials who pushed him to death.

Terror Attack in Chhattisgarh

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind strongly condemns the terror attack at a caravan of Congress party in Bastar district of Chhattisgarh, terming it an inhuman and undemocratic act. Expressing sorrow at the deaths caused by the attack, Jamaat demands the government to initiate such positive and constructive steps that could help in eliminating such unwanted and undesirable incidents. Jamaat also demands the government to order a high-level probe into the Chhattisgarh attack so that the real culprits could be exposed and brought to book.

Jamaat expresses surprise at the fact that even in 65 years of Independence, central and state governments could not create an atmosphere of justice and equality, nor could train the citizenry not to resort to violence to address their grievances.

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind wants to draw the attention of the government to honestly analyze its schemes and plans for tribal areas and to ensure the local inhabitants their justified rights. The government should create an atmosphere there that tribal population seeks resolution of their problems through peaceful and constructive means. Jamaat also wants to tell the tribal people that violence and destruction cannot resolve their problems, rather will complicate them. The tribal people, therefore, must keep from illegal and unpleasant ways and always use peaceful, legal and constitutional means for every struggle.
