Jamiat Protest Against Mob Lynching

New Delhi/Ranchi: Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (JUH) on Wednesday threatened to launch a nationwide protest if the government did not take action to curb mob lynching.

Jamiat Ulama's warning to the government came days after Tabrez Ansari was lynched by a mob in Jharkhand.

"If the state government failed to act in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Apex Court, then Jamiat would launch a country-wide protest against mob lynching", Mahmood Madani, General Secretary of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, said in New Delhi.

Earlier in the day, the Jamiat Ulama had held a protest march in front of Raj Bhawan in Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand, and some other parts of India against the brutal killing of Tabrez Ansari. Led by Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind national leaders, the protest march was attended by thousands of people from different segments of society.

The protesters expressed their anger over the killing and demanded from the state government to take stern punitive action against the guilty.

After the protest march, a delegation of JUH submitted memorandum to Chief Minister and Governor of Jharkhand.

In JUH’s memorandum it has been demanded that the killers of Tabrez Ansari and culprit police officers shall be brought to book immediately.

The memorandum also said that adequate financial compensation shall be paid to the next of kins of the deceased and government should give a job to his wife.

It has also been demanded that the state should act in accordance with the guidelines by the Apex Court to pay special financial compensation to the victims of mob lynching and appoint a nodal officer in every district to handle the issue.

Besides that the memorandum demanded that a separate law should be enacted and fast track Court shall be established to handle the mob-lynching cases.

"All the incidents of mob lynching that have taken place in Jharkhand in the past shall be transferred to the fat track court", the memorandum said.

"Every peace loving citizen of the country feels pained by such gory incidents. The death of Tabrez Ansari in the police custody is also a matter of great concern and seriousness. Such kind of ghastly and barbaric action can never be condoned in a democratic and civilized country like India", the memorandum said.

"The state government cannot abdicate its responsibility if such incidents are recurring there. The government of the day is bound by the constitution to protect the life and dignity of its citizens and take firm action against those who indulge in wreckless killing of innocent persons", the memorandum said.
