NEW DELHI – Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind President Maulana Mahmood Madani has written a letter to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath regarding the unilateral action being taken by the local administration on the violence in Ibrahimpur area in Sultanpur district of Uttar Pradesh.
In the letter, he has demanded to stop the unilateral action and make a stride in restoring peace in the region.
It is noteworthy that on the day of Durga immersion in Ibrahimpur locality in Sultanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, some anti-social elements put the idol near the mosque and then started playing DJ loudly. At the time of Namaz, the responsible people of the mosque requested to go ahead from there but no one listened. Then the quarrel turned into violence. That mosque was damaged. Muslim shops and madrassa in Ibrahimpur were vandalized. Along with this, the students of the madrasa were also beaten up.
But the present situation is that the police are unilaterally arresting only Muslims. Instead of establishing justice, the SO Amarinder Singh incited the crowd while calling, “We will punish them selectively.” Will destroy their houses.” the viral video is now in the public domain. Whatever he said is now being implemented. Of the five people, including the madrasa, who got the notice for illegal occupation, four are Muslims and one is from Yadav community. All those arrested so far are Muslims who were beaten up by the lawyers in the court premises, said Jamiat.
Meanwhile, a delegation of Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind led by Maulana Mutahirul Islam, president of Jamiat Ulama Sultanpur unit, met the District Police Commissioner & police captain and submitted a memorandum to question the unilateral action.
Given these circumstances, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind President Maulana Madani has written a letter to the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Yogi Adityanath, in which a four-point proposal has been presented.
The letter noted that(1)Kindly instruct the police officials to ensure that violence is not repeated (2) Restore peace and tranquillity by holding meetings of Aman committees and common peace yatras. (3)Take appropriate and impartial action against the rioters without consideration of their faiths.
“We have credible information from Jamiat Ulama Sultanpur unit that Police are engaged in arresting persons only from a particular community. (4)Please ensure & instruct the local administration not to initiate any demolition exercise against the accused under the garb of illegal construction as this kind of action stigmatizes the entire community and affects the whole family members,” said Madani.
Meanwhile, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind General Secretary Maulana Hakeemuddin Qasmi on Friday spoke to Uttar Pradesh Minority Affairs Minister Danish Azad and demanded that law and order be restored and special instructions be given to the district administration to refrain from unilateral action.
It may be noted that a copy of the letter of the Jamiat president has also been given to the Commissioner of Police, Sultanpur. The Jamiat delegation included Jamiat Sultanpur president Maulana Mutahirul Islam, Maulana Abdullah Sultanpuri, Maulana Mohammad Usman Qasmi, Maulana Qazi Qaseem Qasmi, Maulana Sohail Ahmed Nadvi, Maulana Rafiullah Makki, Maulana Rafiullah, Maulana Ahmed, former MLA Safdar Raza Khan, Shakeel Ahmed Khan, Amjadullah Advocate, Abdul Sattar, Anees Ahmed Bhalki, Mohammad Ahmed Advocate and Meraj Ahmed
