New Delhi: June 12, 2017:
Maulana Mahmood Madani, General Secretary of Jamiat Ulam-i-Hind in a letter addressed to Shri, Rajnath Singh, the Home Minister of India has demanded stringent action against those persons who are involved in demolition of under construction mosque situated in Sonia Vihar, Chauhan Patti New Delhi.
The communal elements are also threatening local Muslim community of the area to evacuate their residents.
Maulana Madani has also demanded aqequate security arrangements for the local Muslims and rebuilding of the mosque.
It is to be noted that a delegation of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind visited the affected area and had several round of meetings with concerned person over there. Maulana Madani in his letter, drew the attention of the Home Minister that the police was reported by the local Muslims about the threats they received via social media on May 29 (eight days before) the incident but no action was taken by the local police in this regard. As a result of police inaction and laxity, few anti-social elements demolished the mosque during the holy month of Ramadan.
Terrifying situation still prevails in the area after five days of the incident, because police administration has not been cooperating with the members of minority community. In view of sensitivity of the issue, Maulana Madani has demanded swift action in the matter.
