Kalbe Jawad on UP Police

Lucknow: Prominent Shia cleric Kalbe Jawad Sunday hit out at UP Police saying they attacked children in Madrasas and also questioned police action in Muzaffarnagar.

"Children were beaten up in madrasas by the police", he said adding that he has written to the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister to order a probe of the entire matter.

Jawad also said that the government did not do its homework properly before going ahead with the law which is creating fear among the people, especially the Muslims.

"There is a fear among the Muslims that if they do not have proper documents, the government will send them to the camps. What will the government do with those who do not have papers. The government should explain to the Muslims that nothing like this is going to happen", he said.

Jawad said the way government put its act together to maintain peace after the Ayodhya verdict, in the same way it should have acted in the wake of the new citizenship law. More Muslims are participating in the protests, as they feel more threatened than other communities, he added.

At the same time, Jawad also slammed the opposition parties for using the anti-CAA protests for their own benefits. He said there was confusion and fear among Muslims about the new law and it was the duty of the government to clear the doubts.

"All opposition parties are taking advantage of the CAA protests. They are provoking Muslims that they will be expelled from the country. Such a situation has been created that the Muslims cannot understand what to do", Jawad said.

Shia cleric said that Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav's statement that he will not fill the NPR has sent a wrong message to the Muslim community. "All these statements are causing problems. The government should convince Muslims about all these things", he said.

He also said that the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has nothing to do with the protests against the CAA, they are silent on the issue.
