Stop arrest of innocents Muslims on the pretext of ISIS: Muslim organisations

Denouncing the Islamic State (IS) and terrorist, as “unIslamic” the Muslim organizations express the fear over the arrest of hundreds of Muslim youths on the pretext of ISIS.

The organizations include Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, Ahle Hadees, All-India Majlis-e-Mushawarat, Milli Council, and the Welfare Party.

The organisation termed the arrests as a conspiracy to target the educated young Muslim men under the “pretext of IS”, they told this is a ploy to create terror among the community, which will create a problem for the country in the long run.

“Arrest of innocent Muslim youths on one hand, and steps for release of the Hindutva terror in riot cases, prove that the ruling party is implementing its communal agenda. They blso said that Govt slogan ‘sabka saath sabka vikas’ is a mirage”.

According to Indian Express news, a member of All-India Muslim Personal Law Board and Welfare Party said last year in a counter-terror conference Home Minister Rajnath Singh had said that there was no IS in India. “What explains the vacillations since,” he asked. “Has one year suddenly made most educated young (Muslims) suspects?”

The group claimed that most of the arrested youngsters are later released saying as innocents by higher courts, they said, alleging that young men from the community are picked up randomly and charged with being either terrorists or sympathisers.

The group also made seven demands of the NDA government, including “full expose of the Hindutva terror network uncovered by ATS chief Hemant Karkare”.  Thy also demanded formation of a panel to work as “watchdog” and look into cases of arrests made on “mere suspicion”.
