11 Muslims acquitted of all charges in a TADA case after 25 years


By Hanan Zaffar, MM

In a significant judgement, a Nashik court has acquitted 11 Muslim men nearly 25 years after they were first charged under Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) (TADA) Act.
“The whole case was framed because of personal animosity of a Police officer Deepak Jogh with the people of our area. He used to harass us and framed charges without any basis,” said Syed Murtaza Meer, one among the 11 acquitted persons, while talking to Muslim Mirrior.


Meer’s younger brother Ashfaq was also framed in the case.

Justice S.C. Khati of Nashik’s Special TADA Court ordered their acquittal on February 27.

“Case against us was so poor that even Government of Maharashta was not interested in pursuing it. Policemen used to say you will easily get out, since they didn’t even know what to file in a charge sheet” says Meer.

Apart from Meer brothers those arrested included Jameel Ahmed Abdullah Khan, Mohammed Yunus Mohammed Ishaq, Farooque Nazir Khan, Yusuf Gulab Khan, Ayyub Ismail Khan, Waseemuddin Shamsuddin, Shaikha Shafi Shaikh Azeez, Haroon Mohammed Bafati and Moulana Abdul Qader Habibi.

They were charged under section 120 (B) and 153 of IPC and Section 3(3)(4)(5) and Section 4(1)(4) of TADA Act for allegedly conspiring to avenge the December 1992 Babri Masjid demolition and obtaining terror training.


  1. There should some LAW to punish the responsible police for making false charges. otherwise this will repeat again and again. This is not the first time. And judiciary take 25 years to find this truth. What a joke. Other nations will laugh at the professionalism of Police and Judiciary
