Patna: Cruelty on Muslim prisoners in Sabarmati Central Jail of Gujarat is going on for last few days. The torture on the Muslim inmates of the Sabarmati jail reached to its peak level. The police personnel of the crime branch were sent especially to torture the Muslim inmates. The hands, legs and teeth of nearly 35 Muslims were broken.


The injured inmates are not provided with medical facilities, their relatives and even lawyers are not allowed to meet them. In protest of this oppression and demand for justice, Maulana Naseeruddin went on indefinite hunger strike from 27th March 2009.


According to Mr. Khalid Shaikh, advocate of Maulana Naseeruddin, when Maulana Naseeruddin came to know about the inhuman behavior of the officials with Muslim inmates, he demanded violence to be stopped, punish the guilty police officials and provide justice to the injured Muslim inmates. Maulana also demanded to provide basic facilities in the jail. But when his demands were taken for granted by the administration, he went on indefinite hunger strike.


It is to be noted that Maulana Naseeruddin is himself in Sabarmati jail, Ahmedabad under high security and undergoing trial on a criminal conspiracy case in Gujarat since 2004. His one son Mohammd Raziuddin Nasir is in Belgam jail in Karnataka on the suspicion of his links with terrorist activities while his eldest son Mohamed Muqeemuddin Yassir is also in jail on the charges of conspiracy to wage war against the nation and two other criminal cases.


Talking toTwoCircles.net Lateef Mohd Khan, general secretary of Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee, said that Maulana Naseeruddin owned a workshop and was a prominent personality not only among Muslims but also among dalits. His speeches were liked by the people especially youths were fond of that. But he was only inspiring people to follow Islamic teachings nothing else.


However, Maulana has said that he would continue hunger strike unless justice is done to the Muslim inmates because fight for justice is his duty.


Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee (CLMC) in its statement expressed its deep concern over the indefinite hunger strike by Maulana and deteriorating condition of his health. It also expressed its solidarity with Maulana and sent appeal on national and international level to stop atrocities.


Expressing its grief on present condition of Sabarmati jail CLMC termed it similar to the Abu Gharib and Gauntanamo Bay torture cells.


CLMC has sent report to National Human Rights Commission, National Commission for Minorities and Amnesty International and appealed to end violence and ensure the justice to inmates.


CLMC also sent an appeal to the chief Justice of India to intervene into the situation by keeping in view the Gujarat situation and for the greater cause of the humanity and also appealed to the people to show solidarity towards Maulana Naseeruddin and the prisoners of the Sabarmati jail of Ahmedabad by sending their appeals to President, Voice President, Chief Justice, Prime Minister, Home Minister, National Human Rights Commission and National Commission for Minorities.

Sare Jahan Se Accha

Hindustan Hamara

In 1905 more than 100 years from today, when Iqbal was a lecturer at the Government College, Lahore he was invited by his student Lala Hardayal to preside over a function. Instead of making a speech, Iqbal sang Sare Jahan Se Accha Hindustan Hamara in his style. Iqbal compiled this poem in praise of India and the poem preaches the communal harmony that had unfortunately started ceasing in India by that time. Each and every word in this poem depicts an Indian’s respect and love for the motherland and the values the Indian society inherited for long...Read Full
