Muslims account for 90% of arrested individuals: Haryana Police


By Muslim Mirror Staff

In the aftermath of communal clashes that erupted in Nuh district of Haryana, a total of 170 individuals have been arrested, with a significant majority belonging to the Muslim community.

According to Nuh police sources, approximately 90 percent of the arrested individuals are Muslims. The clashes have prompted a total of 56 FIRs to be registered, indicating the scale of the violence that transpired.

Muslim community members have raised concerns over alleged bias in the arrests. They claim that the police disproportionately targeted Muslim men while failing to take adequate action against Hindu men involved in the violence.

A senior police officer acknowledged the high number of Muslim arrests but emphasized that action was also taken against Hindus responsible for the unrest. Notably, four suspects involved in the torching of a mosque were apprehended.

Amidst the controversy, Muslim families are seeking justice for their arrested relatives, maintaining their innocence. Among those detained are individuals who are believed to be under the age of 18, further intensifying the debate surrounding the arrests.

In some cases, family members assert that their detained sons and brothers were minors at the time of arrest, suggesting a potential violation of legal protocols.

One widow, Hurjahan, who had lost her husband last Ramzan, pleads for the release of her sons and son-in-law. Her sons, Junaid and Adil, along with her son-in-law Inam, were arrested in connection with the violence. Hurjahan attests that on the day of the violence, Junaid was at the library, Adil was tending to Inam’s shop, and Inam was at home. Some families contend that their detained relatives were far away from the scene of the violence when it occurred.

The Superintendent of Police (SP) of Nuh, Narendra Bajjarnia, maintains that all arrests were made based on evidence and age verification procedures. While tensions remain high in the aftermath of the communal clashes, concerns over the fairness of the arrests and subsequent legal processes continue to cast a shadow over the district.

As investigations unfold, the complex legal intricacies involved in this case are being closely examined.
