JUH moves SC to stop illegal demolition of homes in UP

New Delhi, June 13 (KMS): The Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind on Monday moved the Supreme Court seeking directives to the Uttar Pradesh government to stop demolition drives undertaken without following due process of law.

The civil administration in Prayagraj and Saharanpur had razed houses of people involved in protests against remarks on Prophet Muhammad by former BJP spokesperson, Nupur Sharma.

The application has sought directives to initiate action against officials responsible for the houses being demolished in violation of the rule of law.


According to the Muslim organisation, the present situation is more alarming as the Supreme Court had already ordered a stay of demolitions that were being carried out as a punitive measure in Northwest Delhi in similar circumstances.

The house of Mohammed Javed, the ‘main accused’ in the Prayagraj clashes, was razed down on Sunday.
