Speakers seek panel to probe recent violence in parts of the country
HUBLI: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind organised a procession and held a public meeting here on Tuesday as part of its “Caravan for Peace and Justice”.
Apart from members of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, several school and college students took part in the procession from Fateh-Shavali Dargah in Old Hubli.
After the procession a public meeting was held at the Islamic Centre at Bhandivad Base.
Chandrashekhars Swamiji of Hosa Math inaugurated the procession earlier.
Several girls from the Muslim community took part in the procession holding placards and banners condemning violence and activities that posed threat to peace and harmony.
Speakers at the meeting urged the Union Government to come out with a White Paper on the situation in the country owing to increasing communal violence, regional and linguistic chauvinism, caste conflicts and terror attacks which had affected the socio-economic and cultural fabric of the country.
The speakers demanded that any effort aimed at breaking the unity and integrity of the country be investigated properly, followed by stringent action.
The Union Government should appoint a high-powered commission to inquire into these acts at the earliest, the speakers said.
The speakers included the office-bearers of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind and a few religious heads, who urged the participants to contribute towards peace and harmony and nation building.
