Jamaat Demands Govt. to Pass the Effective Communal Violence bill in Parliament

pressmeet-oct13

Expressing serious concerns over  the growing trends of communalism in the country, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind demanded the union government to immediately pass the communal violence bill in the parliament so that such unpleasant incidents could be checked effectively.

“The spread of communal  trends and political support to it are very dangerous for unity and integrity of the country. Since Independence, a number of communal riots have occurred in the country – this is not the loss of just one community, rather the entire nation. On one hand we are dreaming to become super power but on the other we are weakening our own country. Our dream cannot be fulfilled unless justice and equality are established and brotherhood, harmony and trust flourish among all sections of the society including minorities,” said Ameer (all India President) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari while addressing the press conference today at Jamaat’s headquarters in the capital.

In the press conference the Jamaat leader deliberated on several national and international issues including ordinance on convicted legislators, riots, communalism, growing shades of violence across the world and home ministry’s advisory to CMs regarding innocent Muslims arresting.

“Nowadays, the attitude of communal forces, police, government agencies and even the government towards minorities and the backward classes of the society, Dalits and Adivasis is very disturbing. The atmosphere of hatred and enmity created by communal forces at the time of Independence has now spread across the country. The communal riot on the outskirts of Bharatpur (Rajasthan) and around 100 communal riots in Uttar Pradesh in last one year have posed a serious question before the country,” Maulana Umari told media persons.

The President of the Jamaat said, “as Gujarat pogrom 2002 was the result of a well-chalked out conspiracy against the Muslims, most of the riots occurred since then also seem to be the result of planned conspiracy. The recent Muzaffarnagar riots have caused huge damage to human lives, economy and dignity and modesty of Muslims. Several social groups and independent fact-finding teams are saying that Muzaffarnagar riots too were organized and planned. This riot has not just exposed the lethargic attitude of the government but also put a question mark before the role of police and administration. Their partisan role is highly condemnable.”

Maulana Umari demanded the Uttar Pradesh government to award stringent punishment to guilty people after the high-level probe, conduct a thorough survey to assess the loss of human lives and properties and award adequate compensation to the victims, take immediate effective steps for rehabilitation of affected people at their original places and make proper arrangements for their protection.

He urged the government to create an atmosphere of peace and brotherhood and take stern action against those who are spoiling the atmosphere. “It is also the responsibility of the government to fulfill all requirements including food and medicine of the survivors living in relief camps. The government should make proper arrangement for filing FIR against the culprits,” Maulana Umari added.

Welcoming withdrawal of ordinance on convicted legislators, Jamaat urges politicians to adhere value-based politics

Welcoming the withdrawal of the ordinance on protecting convicted legislators by the union government, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind urged the politicians and parties to adhere firmly the value-based politics.

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind’s all India President said, “in the wake of the upcoming elections for five assemblies and Lok Sabha, the political and electoral activities are getting intensified and several hidden evils are getting exposed. At this juncture, intellectuals and wise people of the country are feeling the importance of value-based politics. The bad impacts of the growing influence of money, muscle power in the elections are being felt by the common people also. So much so that now a political party has been formed to eradicate corruption. Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has welcomed the Supreme Court judgment that has closed the doors of Parliament and Assemblies for the convicted politicians and strongly objected to the ordinance brought by the central government to check the impact of the apex court order. It is now good that the central government has withdrawn  the ordinance. We welcome the withdrawal of the ordinance which would have otherwise failed the serious and effective efforts being made to cleanse the political field.”

Stressing the need to wipe out corruption and communalism form India, Maulana Umari advised to politicians, “the growing problems of the masses of the country can never be solved unless and until there is a check on the corrupt, communal and criminal-minded people. That’s why Jamaat has been continuously telling the countrymen that politics should not be driven by self-interest, rather it should be based on fear of God, sense of accountability in hereafter life and welfare of the people.”

Jamaat demands full implementation of advisory by Home Minister Shinde to CMs against arrest of innocent Muslim youths

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind demanded  the government to ensure full implementation of the advisory sent by Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde to chief ministers regarding arrest innocent Muslim youths.

“This will help hundreds of innocent Muslim youths arrested in false terror cases in last 15-20 years to get justice and atrocities committed on them could be remedied to some extent. For last several years, several social and human rights groups as well as Muslim organizations have been demanding Home Minister and Prime Minister to stop arrest of innocent Muslims in the name of terrorism and release the innocents, but the government did not heed to the demand. Consequently many such innocents died in jails, their families waited for justice suffering with mental trauma and they are still facing several problems. Though the Home Minister has given his attention to the issue very late, yet the government should prove with actions that it is serious to end violation of human rights and to ensure justice to the oppressed,”  said the head of Jamaat.

Demanding to take some crucial step to stop innocent Muslim youths arresting in false cases, Maulana Umari said: “Special Courts should be set up without any delay for trial of the arrested youths.  The under-trials should be provided with government lawyers.  Action should be taken against the police officers who falsely implicated the innocent youths. The government should offer apology to the acquitted youths and award them adequate compensation. Implementation of the Home Ministry directions should be monitored and monthly progress report should be presented.”

Religious, political leaders come out to root out growing Shadow of Violence in the World: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind

To root out the growing shades of violence across the world Jamaat-e-Islami Hind urged religious and political leaders and champions of human rights to come out to resolve differences and problems through negotiations, dialogue and democratic means and justice should be done with the people who are facing injustice.

“As tolerance is shrinking and violence is growing in our country and many other countries of the world. There are peace and harmony everywhere in the universe of the Almighty Allah. It is the test of the human being that they should also live peacefully on the earth. The recent bombing near a church in Lahore (Pakistan) killing over 80 people including men, women and children, the terror attack at a business mall in Nairobi (Kenya) which killed around 100 innocent people, the attacks in Peshawar and in Nigeria, killings of Muslim minority in Myanmar and bloody incidents in Iraq — all these incidents are highly condemnable,” said the President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Maulana Jalaluddin Umari while addressing to media persons.

“We thinks that the use of violence to tackle differences and solve problems is utterly ineffective and strongly condemnable. Clashes and conflicts should be avoided, differences of viewpoints should be respected and tolerated and peace and communal harmony should be maintained. For this, justice should be done with the people who are facing injustice, poverty and deprivation; individuals and groups should stand with justice, strive against all kinds of injustice and make the world peaceful and free from wars,” Maulana Umari added.

The press conference was attended by Jamaat’s secretary general Nusrat Ali and its secretary Mohammad Ahmed while another secretary Engineer Saleem was the convener the conference.
