‘My son is innocent; he will be acquitted’: father of Mufti Saqib

Hapur: Mufti Saqib is one among the 10 suspects picked up by the National Investigative Agency (NIA). A delegation of Jamat-e-Islami Hind met the family of Mufti Saqib. Raids were conducted by the NIA at 17 places including six in Delhi and 11 in Uttar Pradesh.

Parents and brothers of Mufti Mohammed Saqib told the delegation that Mufti Saqib is a respected person and the villagers can bear witness to this. They said ISIS is not fostering in India, but some people are using its name to defame Muslim community.

Qari Mohammed Iftekhar has complete faith in Allah that his son will be proved innocent. He said a practising Muslim can never do wrong.

Imam of Minar Masjid Faisalabad Maulana Mohammed Aslam and Rafaqat Ali teacher of Madrasa-e-Rasheedia also endorsed that Mufti Saqib is a good person. They were shocked to know that Mufti Saqib was picked up by NIA. They said there must be some misunderstanding.
