Police has detained my son, threaten to kill if I complain: Mustafa

Mumbai: In an emotional appeal to Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, Muslim leaders on Monday urged him to stop indiscriminate implication of Muslim youth by the investigating agencies and demanded to introduce mechanism and specialized agency to curb and control illegal detention and trial in the name of anti- terrorism measure.


"Targeting of Muslim youth and their false implication in terrorist offenses concocted by security agencies and hyper active police officials has resulted into credibility deficit which is counter productive for our anti terrorism drive and initiative.


"In cases after cases several High Courts and Supreme Court have not only acquitted the falsely accused persons because of lack of evidence but they have indicted the police and prosecuting security agencies for willfully and maliciously implicating innocent persons", the Muslim leaders said to the prime minister.


"In this situation, it becomes imperative to immediately introduce mechanism and specialized agency to curb and control illegal detention and trial in the name of anti- terrorism measure", they urged.


The Muslim leaders of various Muslim NGOs who were led by President of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Qari Mohammad Usman and Gen Secretary Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind and Member of Parliament (MP) Mehoomd Madani met prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh at his race course residence on Monday.


Striking an emotion chord with the Prime Minister who himself is from minority community, the leaders said, "The minorities have always identified you as their best friend and supporter who is most sensitive, sincere and concerned about delivering justice to them.


"However UPA Government is nearing to complete its second term under your leadership but the issues remain unresolved. Certainly this situation is disturbing and demands urgent attention and action from you", they said.


Stating that despite severe indictment of earring officials by the court nothing has been done to prosecute them for their willful misuse of power, the leaders said, "Therefore, to curb the trend of false implication of accused persons, immediate penal action must be taken against them. However, it is an ignominy that instead of penalizing them, they continue to be promoted and rewarded."


Demanding justice for the Assam riots victims, the leaders said, "The country is yet to know what action has been taken to arrest and bring the culprits to book, who have killed and arsoned such a large number of our citizen."


About the rehabilitation work, they said, "The affected victims must be justly compensated in terms of Delhi High Court judgment in 1984 riot cases and Supreme Court Judgment in regard to camp inmates relief and rehabilitation in Gujarat in the aftermath of 2002 riots. The budget of relief and rehabilitation announce by the Govt. amounting to INR 300 cr. is nothing but a drop in the ocean. It must be increased in proportion to the loss suffered and the needs at hand."


Demanding the ban on telecast of the blasphemous film in India, the leaders said, "The govt. of India should take adequate steps to ban the telecast in India and impose heavy penalties on the YouTube and its owners: Google and ban them if they fail to prevent the use of their platform for activities which is causing breach of peace in our country."
