‘Thousands of young Muslim men languish in incarceration without charge sheets to their name’

Seeking action on the prolonged incarceration of Muslim youth over unsubstantiated terror charges, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board has demanded that those against whom no charge sheet had been filed even after several years of imprisonment be discharged and compensation given to those who have been acquitted.

The Board also sought action against the police officers who “falsely implicated these youths.” Claiming that a sense of insecurity had crept in among Muslims, the Board decided, during a working committee meeting on Sunday, to submit a resolution to the Central and State governments.

The meeting was presided over by Board president Maulana Rabey Hasni Nadwi.
