New Delhi: June 29, 2017: A Delegation of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind led by its National General Secretary Maulana Mahmood Madani met Home Minister Rajnath Singh today to urge the Centre to curb the growing incidents of mob lynching of innocent youths that have shocked the conscience of peace loving majority of citizen in the country. Maulana Mahmood Madani while recalling the series of incidents that have taken place recently in Mewat, West Bengal, and Jharkhand said that the most vulnerable sections of the society among Muslims, Dalits and other minority groups felt terrorized. “We had been assured earlier that such incidents will be dealt with firmly and the government will take effective action to ensure that the people’s life and property is secured. However, our constant pleas with the authorities have failed completely and there seems to be no end to the grievous situation. Therefore, we have come back to you again to convey to you seeking relief for the oppressed people and request you to please take immediate action to stop the acts of aggression upon the weak and innocent citizen.”
