Srinagar: Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday expressed surprise over the awakening of world leaders and Indian civil society over gruesome gang rape and murder case of innocent girl in Kathua.
In a statement, a chief spokesperson of Jama’at Advocate Zahid Ali said, “An 8 year old Muslim girl was abducted on 10th of January and her brutalized dead body was found on 17th of January this year, but the local police station tried its best to save the real culprits.”
He said, “At that stage, only the local Muslims staged protest against the slow pace of the investigation by the local police and when it got intensified, then the case was handed over to the state crime branch. From this day, the communalist parties tried their best to communalize the situation and organised the huge public rallies led by BJP-RSS leaders including the local legislators and two of the ministers even participated in these rallies supporting the real culprits.”
“None of the legislators or local politicians from BJP ever expressed a single world of sympathy with the bereaved family. The Indian wwomen’s commission and other related human rights bodies also remained tight lipped so far. The Indian Prime Minister Modi who is a self-proclaimed champion of women empowerment and Beti-Bachao has also played a role of a mute spectator so far, and now after the passage of a long period of three months, all of them got suddenly awakened for the reasons best known to them, may be under the international pressure.”
This silence is meaningful, he said, because the victim belonged to the Muslim community which in the eyes of these communalist elements has no right to live smoothly.
Jama’at-e-Islami expresses deep regret over the negative attitude of all those who kept meaningful silence or supported the rapist-murderers of an 8 year old Muslim girl in Kathua and demands the monitoring of the trial by any impartial agency from Amnesty International or any other world body so as to expose the vicious plan behind this inhuman act. Jama’at also demands stringent action against those who supported the inhuman rapist-killers only because of their hatred against Muslims.
