“The gruesome incident of Una is not an isolated one. Many similar brutalities are committed in various parts of the country. In Ahmednagar, Maharashtra a Dalit girl was assaulted. Former Chief Minister of UP and prominent Dalit leader Mayawatiwas verbally abused and faced derogatory remarks by a leader belonging to the ruling party”, jamaat said in a statement adding that these incidents reflect the deep racial prejudices prevalent in Indian society.
“Ever since the NDA government took power at the Center, these racial chauvinists and anti-social elements have become emboldened and belligerent. The silence of our Prime Minister too has not helped matters”.
Jamaat emphasized that all human beings are born equal and hold equal status. Racial superiority and racial supremacy is a scourge to society and must be eliminated at all costs. All human beings should be respected and unity of mankind should be promoted.
Jamaat-e-Islami Hind calls for an effective check on atrocities against Dalits. The guilty should be punished in accordance with the law and the administration and police should be made accountable.
