Authorities on Sunday demolished a house in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj city, claiming that it belonged to Javed Mohammad, the activist and businessman arrested in connection with the violence witnessed during a protest held on Friday. However, records shows that the premises was actually by Javed’s wife Parveen Fatima, reported The Indian Express.
“The PDA (Prayagraj Development Authority) issued a notice to my father and demolished my mother’s residence,” Javed and Fatima’s younger daughter Sumaiya was quoted by The Indian Express as saying.
She added that the house was owned by her mother Parveen Fatima’s father Kaleemuddin Siddiqui. He had gifted it to her mother over two decades ago.
The report referred to a receipt issued by Jal Kal Vibhag, Prayagraj, on February 8 which shows that Parveen Fatima paid a water bill of Rs 4,578.
A day before the demolition, local authorities had issued a notice. However, it was addressed to Javed Mohammad and not to his wife Parveen Fatma who is the actual owner.
I do not know under which section of the Indian Penal Code any criminal’s home can be demolished. Assuming a person is the mastermind of the riot, the court will punish him. What right does the Chief Minister or his police have to punish that person? And this is what is happening, Yogi Aditya Nath is abusing power. Destroying India’s constitutional infrastructure. Sometimes he is said to be the mastermind of the riots, or his house is an illegal construction. So what’s the real deal?
