India Tomorrow
NEW DELHI, DECEMBER 17— The top leaders of India’s largest Muslim organizations have decided to jointly launch “an organized campaign” against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Law which discriminates with Muslims on the basis of religion.

“We strongly condemn the Citizenship (Amendment) Law and consider it against the fundamental structure of the Constitution and constitutional values. We appeal to all peace-loving people of the country to oppose this law and put pressure on the government to withdraw it,” said the Muslim leaders in a resolution passed at the emergency meeting held Monday night in Delhi.

The leaders had gathered at the call of Syed Sadatullah Hussaini, President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind. They included: Maulana Mahmood Madani (Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind), Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan (Ittehad-e-Millat Council), Dr. Zafarul Islam Khan (Delhi Minorities Commission), Dr. Mohammad Manzoor Alam (All India Milli Council), Navaid Hamid (All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat), Maulana Shees Taimi (Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadees), Dr. SQR Ilyas (All India Muslim Personal Law Board), Mohammad Jafar (Jamaat-e-Islami Hind), Maulana Niyaz Ahmad Farooqui ((Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind)), Dr. Syed Zafar Mahmood (Zakat Foundation of India), Kamal Farooqui ((All India Muslim Personal Law Board)), Mujtaba Farooque (Jamaat-e-Islami Hind) and Abdul Jabbar Siddiqui (Jamaat-e-Islami Hind).

The meeting took place two days after police crackdown on the students of Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University who were protesting against the controversial citizenship law. The police action led to widespread protests at several universities across the country.

At the Monday meeting, Muslim leaders passed a resolution denouncing the police action at Jamia Millia and AMU. They applauded the students for peacefully and democratically protesting against the discriminatory law.

“This meeting strongly condemns the barbarity of Delhi police who brutally assaulted the protesters, barged into library and hostels and beat up the students. We demand independent judicial probe into the police atrocities and guilty officers should be punished,” reads the resolution.

The new citizenship law, passed by the Parliament last Tuesday, will grant citizenship to only non-Muslim migrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan who are living in India. The new law has removed several restrictions including requirement of document to grant citizenship to the people from Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Buddhist, Jain and Parsi communities. Muslims are apprehensive that when the government will start nationwide process for updation of National Register of Citizens (NRC), Muslims will be held for any lack of documents while others will get through thanks to the new citizenship law. 

The Muslim leaders called upon the protesters across the country to remain cautious and ensure that anti-social elements and opponents do not divert the protest or turn it violent. IndiaTomorrow

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind condemns police crackdown on JNU students

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind condemns police crackdown on JNU students

New Delhi:   Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has condemned the crackdown on the students of Jawaharlal Nehru University by the Delhi Police and CRPF.

In a press note issued today to the media, JIH Vice President Muhammad Salim Engineer said: “We condemn the lathi-charge by Delhi police and CRPF on protesting students of JNU. There are reports of many injured students and even journalists who were covering the protest. In a democratic setup, such use of excessive force against the student community is quite deplorable. We feel that the students’ demand for rollback of their hostel fees, which has been hiked 1000%, is genuine and the JNU administration and HRD Ministry must accept it.”

Commenting on the role of the government in education, Salim Engineer asserted: “The government must provide world-class education at an affordable cost to all sections of society. The government is trying to escape from its responsibility and passing the burden on students. This will deprive the poor and deserving students of education and the nation will suffer. We reiterate our earlier demand that the government must increase its minimum allocation for education to be 6% of the GDP. Our youth is our strength and we must nurture and take good care of them.”

Salim Engineer also advised the police and administration to observe restraint while dealing with students with regard to their demands pertaining to education and asked students to be peaceful and not to take the law in their own hands.

Jamaat Islami Hind urges justice-loving people to join in condemning Israeli atrocities in Gaza

Jamaat Islami Hind urges justice-loving people to join in condemning Israeli atrocities in Gaza

New Delhi: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has condemned the recent atrocities of Israel in Gaza and urged all justice-loving people of India to do the same.

In a press statement issued to the media, JIH President Syed Sadatullah Hussaini said: “the recent attacks by the Israeli Defense Forces on Gaza have resulted in more than 34 Palestinian deaths including eight members of a family leaving an infant orphaned. We condemn this aggression unequivocally and urge an immediate cessation of any further attacks on Gaza. The Israeli approach of intimidation and escalation without any regard to international norms of avoiding civilian targets is highly reprehensible. However, it is strange that this Israeli approach of unaccountable violence on an entire nation has not invited the censure of governments, civil society and the media. We urge the justice-loving people of India, our Muslim leadership, various political parties, the government of India and media to condemn this deplorable attack on the people of Gaza and support the Palestinian cause in attaining freedom from Israeli occupation.”

Serving a reminder, Mr.Sadatullah stated: “India has always fought imperialist powers and supported countries in their struggle against imperialism and apartheid. The absence of any condemnation over the killing of innocent Palestinian lives shall embolden Israel to continue its atrocities without accountability. The people of Palestine rely on India for supporting its struggle for an independent state. We must not let them down, in their hour of need.”

Not satisfied with the judgment but accept it and appeal to all to maintain peace:Jamaat-e-Islami Hind

New Delhi: The President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH), Syed Sadatullah Hussaini has appealed to all citizens of India for maintaining peace and communal harmony after the Supreme Court of India delivered the Ayodhya verdict today morning.

Addressing the media the JIH President said: “We are not completely satisfied with the Supreme Court judgment on the “Babri Masjid title suit”, some points of the judgment are very important as they strengthen the Constitution of India and will help in maintaining law and order in the country. However, we disagree with many things in the verdict, especially the conclusion.

We live in a civilized society where the rule of the law is paramount. We have always been saying that we will honor, respect, and accept what the Supreme Court and the judicial process will conclude. Our lawyers are reviewing the judgment whether there is scope to file a review or curative petition and we will make a decision regarding that in consultation with the other Muslim Personal Law Board members.

To conclude, we are not satisfied with the judgment but we appeal to the people that they must honor the judgment, respect the law, and maintain communal harmony. There should not be any polarization on communal lines due to the verdict. This judgment is neither a victory nor defeat of any party.”

Historic Supreme Court verdict in Babri Masjid land dispute case on Saturday morning at 10:30 AM ; 10 Points

Historic Supreme Court verdict in Babri Masjid land dispute case on Saturday morning at 10:30 AM ; 10 Points

November 08, 2019 23:56 IST

The Supreme Court will deliver its verdict on the Ayodhya dispute on Saturday morning, ending decades of uncertainty on the issue. The decision was taken by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi in consultation with four other judges deciding the case late on Friday evening. Massive security arrangements have been put in place to ensure that there is no backlash after the verdict.

Here are the top 10 highlights of the Ayodhya Case:

  1. The landmark verdict will be delivered at 10:30 am on Saturday. There was no clarity on the date until now, other than the fact that the judgment would be delivered before Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi's retirement on November 17.

  1. The five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had reserved the judgement on October 16 after a marathon hearing of 40 days. The other members of the bench are Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer.

  1. Earlier on Saturday, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had met top Uttar Pradesh officials to discuss law-and-order arrangements in this regard. At least 12,000 security personnel have been posted in Uttar Pradesh, where Ayodhya is situated, to ensure that no violence breaks out.

  1. The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has also ordered the closure of all schools, colleges, educational institutions and training centres in the state from Saturday to Monday. Similar orders have been issued in Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Jammu and Delhi too.

  1. "I appeal to everybody in the state to not listen to rumours. The government is committed to ensuring the safety of every single resident in the state. Any person who tries disrupting the peace in the state will be prosecuted," Yogi Adityanath tweeted late on Friday night.

  1. The government has increased the security provided to the five judges ahead of the Ayodhya verdict. Two helicopters have been kept on standby in Lucknow and Ayodhya to tackle any possible emergency. Security arrangements in Delhi have also been tightened.

  1. The dispute over 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya, claimed by both Hindus and Muslims, has dominated political discourse since the 1980s. While Hindu activists want to build a temple on the site, Muslim groups claim there is no proof that a temple existed there.

  1. In 1992, rightwing activists tore down the 16th century Babri mosque which they believed was built on the ruins of an ancient temple that marked the birthplace of the Lord Ram. In the riots that followed, more than 3,000 people were killed.

  1. An Allahabad High Court verdict prescribing a three-way division of the disputed land in September 2010 failed to satisfy the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla, the parties involved in the dispute. All three moved the Supreme Court.

  1. In an effort to ensure that violence doesn't break out after the verdict, senior RSS and BJP leaders had held a meeting with prominent Muslim clerics and intellectuals recently. They decided that nobody should indulge in hysterics irrespective of which way the judgment goes.
