Jamaat-e-Islami Hind today demanded that the NDA government at the Centre should prove its seriousness in stopping fascist and communal attacks on the minorities and dispel the notion of being soft towards communal and fascist forces. Addressing the media at their monthly press conference in New Delhi, Secretary General of Jamaat e Islami Hind Muhammad Salim Engineer said: “Jamaat considers incidents such as the lynching of Muhammad Akhlaq in Dadri to be the logical culmination of the communal and divisive agenda followed by the NDA government wherein a climate of violence, intimidation and hatred against the minority community is being perpetuated for narrow political gains. Such incidents are preplanned and engineered to coincide with upcoming elections for polarization of votes along communal lines. Jamaat demands justice for the family of the victim and that the guilty should be punished at the earliest.”

Jamaat e Islami Hind expresses deep sorrow at the stampede in Mecca during the Hajj pilgrimage on the 24th September and hopes that the Saudi government will come out with the findings of their enquiry and ensure that there is no reoccurrence of such incidents.

Jamaat has decided to support the secular candidates with good character capable of defeating the BJP led front in the upcoming assembly elections in Bihar scheduled in October-November 2015 and is preparing a list of candidates to be supported after the required consultations with the concerned stakeholders.

Jamaat also expressed its disappointment with the recent tour of Prime Minister Modi to the US and Ireland. Jamaat asked the Prime Minister to spell out the benefits that the poor and marginalized sections will gain in his dream to make India a $20 trillion economy as even after 15 months under his stewardship as Prime Minister the poor and deprived do not see any tangible difference in their lives.

Jamaat e Islami Hind also appealed to the President of India not to give his assent to the Gujarat Control of Terrorism and Organized Crime (GCTOC) Bill 2015, forwarded to him by the Home ministry
