Jamaat-e-Islami Hind demands govt to pass Communal Violence Bill
Saturday October 5, 2013 8:43 PM, News Network

Expressing serious concerns over the growing trends of communalism in the country, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind demanded the union government to pass the communal violence bill in the parliament so that such unpleasant incidents could be checked effectively.

"The spread of communal trends and political support to it are very dangerous for unity and integrity of the country. Since Independence, a number of communal riots have occurred in the country - this is not the loss of just one community, rather the entire nation", said Ameer (all India President) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Syed Jalaluddin Umari while addressing the press conference today at Jamaat's headquarters in the capital.

"On one hand we are dreaming to become super power but on the other we are weakening our own country. Our dream cannot be fulfilled unless justice and equality are established and brotherhood, harmony and trust flourish among all sections of the society including minorities," he added.

In the press conference the Jamaat leader deliberated on several national and international issues including ordinance on convicted legislators, riots, communalism, growing shades of violence across the world and home ministry's advisory to CMs regarding innocent Muslims arresting.

"Nowadays, the attitude of communal forces, police, government agencies and even the government towards minorities and the backward classes of the society, Dalits and Adivasis is very disturbing", Umari told media persons.

The atmosphere of hatred and enmity created by communal forces at the time of Independence has now spread across the country. The communal riot on the outskirts of Bharatpur (Rajasthan) and around 100 communal riots in Uttar Pradesh in last one year have posed a serious question before the country," he said..

The President of the Jamaat said, "as Gujarat pogrom 2002 was the result of a well-chalked out conspiracy against the Muslims, most of the riots occurred since then also seem to be the result of planned conspiracy."

"The recent Muzaffarnagar riots have caused huge damage to human lives, economy and dignity and modesty of Muslims. Several social groups and independent fact-finding teams are saying that Muzaffarnagar riots too were organized and planned. This riot has not just exposed the lethargic attitude of the government but also put a question mark before the role of police and administration. Their partisan role is highly condemnable", he said.

He demanded from the Uttar Pradesh government to award stringent punishment to guilty people after the high-level probe, conduct a thorough survey to assess the loss of human lives and properties and award adequate compensation to the victims, take immediate effective steps for rehabilitation of affected people at their original places and make proper arrangements for their protection.

He urged the government to create an atmosphere of peace and brotherhood and take stern action against those who are spoiling the atmosphere.

"It is also the responsibility of the government to fulfill all requirements including food and medicine of the survivors living in relief camps. The government should make proper arrangement for filing FIR against the culprits," he said.
