The Allahabad High Court has granted bail to Deoband cleric Maulana Masood Madni in a rape case. Justice Arvind Kumar Tripathi passed the order on Tuesday, allowing the bail plea of Madni, who was arrested in March this year upon the complaint of the woman hailing from Jind district in Haryana.

In the FIR lodged at Deoband police station of Saharanpur district in western Uttar Pradesh, the complainant had claimed that due to her inability to bear a child, she met Madni going by his reputation as a “spiritual doctor”.

She had further alleged that Madni asked her to come to his house in Deoband for performing special rituals and when she went there he raped her. Madni is the brother of Maulana Mahmood Madni – president of Islamic outfit Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind and a former Rajya Sabha member.

    This kind of journalism stains the name of a respected and renowned personality, change it as soon as possible. Is this the journalism at national level ? The indian express must understand that this will also tarnish its image. Its ridiculous....
