Muslims rising against terror arrest of innocent youths
Patna: There has been resentment in the Muslim society as they did not believe their youths could be involved in terror blasts. But they remained silent. Now after courts have started releasing those youths one after another, the community is now expressing the resentment in a democratic way. In last 10 days, three programs were organized in different parts of the country condemning the terror arrest of Muslim youths. The latest was held in Darbhanga on Friday.
Thousands of people were at the program held by Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind in Darbhanga. Clerics — Maulana Arshad Madni (president, Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind), Maulana Anisur Rahman Qasmi (Chairman, Haj Committee, Bihar – and politicians — Mohammad Ali Ashraf Fatmi (Ex HRD Minister), Izhar Ahmad (MLA), Sultan Ahmad (Ex MLA) – all were present at the program and voiced against the arrest of innocents in terror cases. This was evidence that the community of the region is angry over the arrest of dozen odd youths from Darbhanga, Madhubani and other parts of Bihar since November 2011.
For years the community held conferences to condemn terror blasts and their seminaries issued fatwas against the menace – this all in the backdrop of arrest of Muslim youths after every terror blast in last 10 years, but they hardly uttered a word against the arrests. But when they saw courts acquitting Muslim youths in terror cases one after another, yet no check on arrest of innocent youths, they concluded this is conspiracy, this is injustice.
Patna demonstration of Bihar opposition leader on 2nd April 2012
On 2nd April first protest demonstration against the arrests was organized in Patna by Mr. Ghulam Ghaus, Leader of Opposition in Bihar Legislative Council. He condemned the arrests and warned that if the malicious campaign against Muslim community is not stopped he will lead a march towards Delhi. He alleged both state and central government could be behind the conspiracy.
On 31st March, top Muslim leaders came out on a platform and asked the governments, police and intelligence agencies to stop harassment, illegal detention and torture of innocent Muslim youths in the name of fighting terrorism. They also demanded prosecution and punishment of all police and intelligence officials who have been involved in falsely implicating Muslim youths in terror cases.
The convention was organised by All India Milli Council and supported by all major Muslim organisations including All India Muslim Majlis Mushawarat, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind, Welfare Party of India, Coordination Committee for Indian Muslims and Markazi Jamiat Ulema.
