Muslim organisations demand withdrawal of FIR against against Dr Zafarul Islam Khan

Prominent Muslim leaders have demanded withdrawal of FIR registered against Chairman of the Delhi Minorities Commission Zafarul Islam Khan who has been booked on sedition charge for his social media posts.

Condemning the police action and terming it “biased”, the clerics and Muslim leaders from different parts of the country alleged that the case against Khan is just another form of “targeting” Muslims.

Joint Statement released by Muslim leaders:

“We condemn the action by the Delhi Police against Dr. Zafarul Islam Khan. The biased role of Delhi Police has once again been exposed by its action against the Chairman of the Delhi Minorities Commission over something he tweeted a few days back. One may differ with the content of Dr. Khan’s tweet and he had issued a clarification regarding the same. However, according to reports, the Delhi Police officers reached his residence without any prior notice and were adamant to take him along with them. This kind of action during the lockdown, exactly before iftar time, against the head of a quasi-judicial institution, gives an idea about the level to which the police can stoop. After failing to arrest those responsible for the huge loss of life and property during the riots of North-Delhi, the Delhi Police is targeting Muslims in different ways. Ignoring the nefarious activities, poisonous speeches, statements and organized attacks, well known to the whole world and punishing those who raise their voice for the oppressed or to target those who oppose the government policies at the hands of the police, is extremely dangerous for the entire country. We demand that the government should immediately take back the FIR against Dr. Zafarul Islam Khan and stop the Delhi Police from taking action against innocent citizens.”
