JIH demands judicial probe into violence in Delhi

New Delhi, Feb 25 (IANS) Expressing concern over the situation in the national capital, the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) demanded a judicial probe into the violence in northeast Delhi which claimed 10 lives.

"The situation in the nation''s capital is extremely worrying and there is an urgent need for all to work together and restore peace and normalcy immediately," said JIH President Saddatullah Hussaini.

"We all witnessed the overt incitement to violence by politicians followed by violent attacks on protesters. The Delhi Police was unable to control the violence. Armed gangs went on the rampage in the presence of the police, which didn''t do anything to stop them," said Hussaini in a statement.

The JIH demanded that the politicians who were responsible for provoking the violence should be immediately arrested. The Chief Minister along with his MLAs, the MPs of Delhi and prominent community and religious leaders must tour the violence-affected areas and appeal for calm.

"The Delhi Police must act against those breaking the law and resorting to acts of violence irrespective of the citizen''s religious and political affiliation. We have so far seen that the police are acting in an extremely prejudiced manner against the minority community," the JIH chief said.
