Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has strongly condemned the arrest of Maulana Abdul Qavi, vice president of Jamiat Ulema in Hyderabad, at the Delhi airport while he was on way to Deoband.
Jamaat has termed it as the worst example of state terror as well as the injustices and violation of human rights being suffered by Muslims for last several years. Jamaat demanded the government to end such anti-Muslim atrocities.
Nusrat Ali, secretary general of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind said “leaders of Muslim organizations have been demanding the Central government to stop detention and arrest of Muslims, especially the educated among them, and release the arrested persons and award them proper compensation.”
Police have been continuing the arrest of more and more Muslims, only to terrorize the entire community, ignoring the instructions of Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde. The arrest of Maulana Abdul Qavi and some Muslim youths two days earlier in Rajasthan and Delhi was latest example of the continuing state terror against Muslims.
Jamaat’s Secretary General wondered why the government is not trying to understand that this undemocratic and unjustified attitude will only harm the country and its image and will cause shame for the country in the entire world.
He demanded immediate release of Abdul Qavi, legal action against the guilty police officers and full compensation for sullying the image of a Muslim organization and its leader.
He also asked Muslims to collectively protest against the ongoing injustices in the country, not to become victim of fear psychology and counter the conspiracy against the country and community through effective use of laws of the land.
He also advised Muslims to use the collective power of vote in the Lok Sabha elections to defeat those people who have caused problems for the community.
