Jamaat-e-Islami Hind’s relief and rehabilitation committee will adopt 1000 selected families, displaced from five villages of Muzaffarnagar riot areas in its first phase programme and the committee will try to immediately rehabilitate them in their original homes.
“Thousands of Muzaffarnagar riot hit displaced families are forced to live in extremely small relief camps or under open sky without shelter in miserable conditions with very poor sanitation facilities, therefore Jamaat-e-Islami Hind’s relief and rehabilitation committee has decided to adopt 1000 selected families, displaced from five villages in its first phase programme of emergency relief and it will try to immediately but safely rehabilitate them as much as possible in their original homes,” said Jamaat-e-Islami Hind’s all India secretary Mohammad Shafi Madani, who has been chairman of Islamic Relief Committee of Gujarat (IRCG), also in-charge of relief and rehabilitation works in Assam’s riot areas.
Giving details of the relief and rehabilitation works Mr. Madani said, “We are doing target legal works including registering FIRs. We will strive for providing suitable compensations from the government to each victim and will also pressurize government for proper compensation to all persons who suffered any loss and damage of property and commodities. We will also focus on communal harmony and will create a good atmosphere in the riot hit areas and will do our best for building good mutual relationships between Muslims and Hindus, and Muslims and Jats.”
“In first phase programme of the relief committee on emergency basis, 1000 tents will be erected for 1000 adopted families providing all basic needs on temporary basis i.e. 2000 quilts (Lihaf), 1000 big size mats, proper sanitation facilities, 10 hand pumps, street light poles, 5 temporary schools will be established for them. As Eid ul Azha is near, animals will be sacrificed to share these displaced families in Eid celebrations,” Mr. Madani informed after assessment of survey and relief works, as a delegation led by Shafi Madani has recently visited Meerut’s Falah-e Aam Hospital, the headquarters of Jamaat’s Muzaffarnagar relief works.
Giving details of the legal works, Mr. Madani said, “a sub-committee for legal works has been formed and Advocate Abdul Qayyum of Meerut has been selected as the head, while APCR UP chapter’s office bearers will be members of this subcommittee and Association for Protection of Civil Rights’s (APCR) national coordinator Mr. Syed Akhlaq will monitor and assist it in executing legal works.”
The relief committee has completed survey works as its members and other volunteers visited relief camps and filled the survey forms detailing all important data about each riot hit person and family. The Jamaat’s UP (West) President, Maulana Inamullah Islahi along with other state leaders of Jamaat has also recently visited some relief camps and riot hit areas for monitoring relief and survey works.
Apart from Mr. Madani, Mr. Syed Akhlaq, Mr. Anwarulhaq, Jamaat’s Media Dept, were the part of this delegation.
