New Delhi: The Popular Front of India (PFI) has appreciated the “alertness” shown by courts against police probe into Delhi pogrom. In a statement, PFI chief OMA Salam praised additional sessions judge Vinod Yadav for criticising police officers in connection with their “shoddy” probe into Madina Masjid vandalism case.
He further referred to the Karkardooma court’s verdict, in which the police were fined Rs 25,000 for not registering a separate FIR on the complaint of one Mohammad Nasir, who was shot at by alleged RSS workers and lost one of his eyes during the pogrom.
”The Delhi Police, notorious for its communal bias and anti-Muslim stance had faced severe criticism last year for its ineffective handling of the N E-Delhi riots, as they were found aiding and abetting Hindutva violence against innocent Muslims,” Salam said.
The minority communities in India have been victims to this connivance of the Police forces who often incited and abetted Hindutva violence, falsely implicated innocent victims and then went on to conspire with the Hindutva politicians to save the Hindutva rioters from criminal proceedings, he added.
The PFI chief called upon the judiciary to monitor further proceedings, adding that Hindutva [Hindu nationalist ideology] politicians affiliated with the “powerful” in the city are still untouched by the law and want to incite further hate and violence against the minority community.
