Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has cancelled its Eid Milan Program protesting against lynching of innocent people, says Maulana Madani.
New Delhi: June 27
Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has decided to cancel its Eid Milan reception scheduled to be held on 30th June 2017. The recent communally inspired incidents of mob lynching of innocent youths have shocked the conscience of peace loving majority of citizen in the country. The most vulnerable sections of the society among Muslims, Dalits and other minority groups feel terrorized. Our constant pleas with the authorities have failed completely and there seems to be no end to the grievous situation. Therefore, says Maulana Mahmood Madani, General Secretary of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind “We are pained to take this decision expressing our empathy and solidarity with the oppressed people in order to voice the anguished feelings of the silent majority of Indian people and their firm resolve not to be cowed down and resist against such acts of aggression upon the weak and innocent citizen.
Maulana Madani also said: “We hope that the Government will understand our feelings and make efforts seriously to protect the lives and property of its citizen keeping up with its constitutional duty. In the eyes of law everyone is equal. No civilized society can abandon its minorities and weaker sections to the mercy of hooligans as it is happening now.”
Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind appeals to the Government of India to take firm actions against prevalent hooliganism and ensure that no such incidents take place in future and peace and amity is restored so that the public may celebrate the Eid, Holi and Diwali sharing with each other in their festivities and sorrows together, the prime intent behind its Eid Milan program which unfortunately is being deferred tell better days return. Let’s hope and pray it happens soon. Maulana Mahmood Madani appeals to all the invitees to the program to bear the inconvenience caused to them due to cancellation of the program as a gesture of their support for the humanitarian cause of oppressed people.
