New Delhi, February 19 (KMS): The prominent Muslim organisation Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind has has said that the abduction and killing of two Muslims in India is an inhuman and barbaric act.
Charred bodies of Nasir (25) and Junaid alias Juna (35), residents of Ghatmeeka village in Bharatpur district of Indian state Rajasthan, were found inside a burnt car at in Bhiwani, Haryana, on Thursday. The both Muslims were abducted and killed after their car was burnt by Hindutva terror group of Bajrang Dal.
Jamiat president Maulana Mahmood Madani has said, “This is not an isolated case; before this, another young man named Waris, a resident of Hussainpur village in Haryana’s Mewat district, was also killed on the same pattern on January, 28 2023.”
“All these incidents of hatred and crimes against the Muslim minority community are a pointer towards polarising and creating a vitiating atmosphere in India,” he said.
“What perplexes one is that in spite of the accused being named and police cases lodged against them, it has been observed that those who identify themselves as so called cow protectors, often function under the patronage of the state administration and police, who instead of taking any action against them, usually protects them,” he said.
Madani said such “inhuman, barbaric, and uncivilised” acts can’t be tolerated in any society.
In a letter addressed to the BJP government in New Delhi, Madani urged it to take immediate and appropriate steps to ensure that the accused are apprehended at the earliest and are tried under the due process of the law, a statement released by Jamiat said.
The Jamiat demanded an immediate judicial enquiry of the matter and rehabilitation measures for the affected family, the statement said.
