JUH to build ‘Jamiat Nagar’ in Assam

New Delhi: President of Jamiatul Ulama-e Hind (JUH), Maulana Arshad Madni said while speaking at a one-day conference of JUH’s executive committee, held at its head office at Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg (in Delhi) that loot and massacre of Muslims by Bodo terrorists has been going on in Assam from 22 July and that even at present Muslims were being shot and killed in Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa, Dhubri etc. They were being burnt alive also and their houses were being bulldozed. Proofs and documents of their being Indian citizens were being destroyed because of which conditions were becoming more explosive day by day but instead of controlling this situation, Assam’s Gogoi government while pursuing BJP’s ideology and agenda appears to be siding with the Bodos. Hence the executive committee of Jamiatul Ulama once again has emphatically demanded that the Indian government control this situation on a war footing, arrest Bodo terrorists, confiscate their illegal arms, make arrangements for the return of more than 5 lakh uprooted and homeless Muslims who were living in refugee camps, to their homes with foolproof security and till that time make suitable arrangements for their meals and accommodation in refugee camps and foil all conspiratorial attempts and activities of the Assam government and BJP and its outfits against Muslims.

He further said that in this meeting of the executive committee many proposals were approved, most important of which was that ‘Jamiat Nagar’ would be set up in riot-hit areas of Assam where arrangements would be made for the accommodation of uprooted and homeless Muslims. He said that in Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Dhubri, not only were Muslims shot and killed but according to his information, they were also burnt alive on a large scale. He said that when all indications and proofs of Assam Muslims being Indian citizens were being, and have been, destroyed they do not understand whether the government would be able to give them homes. Hence Jamiatul Ulama has decided to provide homes to such homeless people in Jamiat Nagar. He said that on earlier occasions also Jamiat Nagars were set set up in Kashmir, Bihar, Gujarat etc. He said that Jamiat’s executive committee has also unanimously decided that a hundred helpless and weak children will be selected from affected areas of Assam and arrangements would be made for their primary and higher education for which a annual budget of Rs. 50 lakh has been drawn up.

He said that arrangements were already being made by JUH for the eating and drinking of lakhs of Muslims in refugee camps and right from day one they have been expressing their worries about these victims after the massacre in Assam and were also warning the central and Assam governments to bring the situation under control at the earliest. He further said that after the executive committee meeting a delegation of Jamiatul Ulama would meet UPA’s chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi and home minister Shinde and put forward their demands to them.

He said in his presidential address that the on-going racial discrimination and violence in Assam, frightening Muslims by spreading rumours among the people with the help of social networking media and putting the blame on Muslims, indiscriminate arrests of innocent Muslim youth by ATSs, of different states, planned campaign of their character assassination and chain of communal riots in UP are different aspects of conspiracies by anti-Muslim forces whose objective was to divide the people along communal lines to occupy the seat of power in Delhi at all cost in the 2014 general election. Hence they had to foil these objectives of communal forces. Most of the important leaders and office bearers of JUH (Arshad group) participated in this conference in addition to many special invitees and observers.
