Muslim outfit voices concern over detention of youths

Jamat-e-Islami Hindi today claimed that Muslim youths were being "indiscriminatly" arrested under terror charges and voiced concern over the recent detention of members of the community by Delhi Police.

"The indiscriminate arrests of Muslim youths under so called charges of terrorism in the country is a cause of concern," vice president of the organisation Nusrat Ali said when asked about detention of 13 persons by Delhi Police on Tuesday.

Four of those detained for their alleged ideological leaning towards banned outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) were today released due to lack of adequate evidence. Three have been arrested while six others are undergoing questioning.

"The reports show forced recoveries of materials from such accused which is why a large number of them are later acquitted by the courts," Ali said in a statement.Jamat is helping such youth by extending legal help to them and financial help to their families, he said.

The outfit's leaders have also expressed concern over drought situation in many parts of the country and demanded that the government impose a ban on industries which are causing "scarcity and pollution" of water.

"Jamat has been trying to assist drought affected people with the help of its volunteers and by supplying water through tankers in Latur and Udaygir in Maharashtra," Ali said.

The organisation condemned violence in Syria and expresseddeep concern over killing of innnocent people in the middle east country.

"Jamat opposes intervention of US and Russia in Syria and demands that the United Nations take a serious view of the deteriorating situation there and play an effective role," he added.
