All the Muslim youth, who had been arrested following the desecration of the Holy Qur’an at Batla House Chowk in the Jamia Nagar area of New Delhi on September 22, were released on December 24.
Jamia Nagar Coordination Committee, which had been spearheading the movement for the release of these detained Muslims and final resolution of the case against them, has expressed pleasure over the grant of bail to all of them.
The Committee, which had been formed soon after the incident by the representatives of some Muslim organisations and community and residents welfare associations including Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, Milli Council, etc., has extended thanks to all its constituents for their significant contribution to bringing the case to this end.
Convener of the Committee Irfanullah Khan expressed pleasure that three-month long concerted efforts coupled with Muslim unity and legal measures taken by the Committee have played a significant role that led to the release of the detainees on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha. “For this all the members of the Committee deserve congratulations,” he said.
Commenting on not filing of the charge-sheet by the police during all these three months, the convenor of the Committee said, “Not filing of the charge-sheet as yet supports our stand that the charges levelled against the detainees in this case were totally wrong and baseless.”
