Muslim Morcha demands end to mob lynching

Stages protest at Jantar Mantar

The All India United Muslim Morcha, which works for the empowerment of the community, on Thursday, staged a day-long sit-in protest at Jantar Mantar, demanding incidents of mob lynching across the Capital be stopped.

Inclusion in SC/ST Act

The Morcha, in a statement, said it also demanded the inclusion of minorities in the SC/ST Act constituted under Article 341 of the Constitution.

“Like the Ayodhya dispute, the issue of Dalit Muslim reservation is also in the apex court, waiting for its final verdict. As both the issues are standing since 1949 and 1950, therefore the final verdict on both should come together otherwise it will be a great injustice with the marginalised Muslim mass, that is Dalit Muslims, who are the victims of the Ayodhya case,” said the Morcha’s national vice-president Kamal Ashraf.

Terming mob lynchings a “new technique” of accelerating “the wave of communal politics in India”, Hafiz Gulam Sarwar, the national spokesperson of the outfit, urged the inclusion of Dalit Muslims under the SC/ST Act in order to “erase the fear psychosis” among them.
