Six Muslim organisations have come together to denounce the Islamic State (IS) as “unIslamic” and “terrorist” but have also exhibited concern over what they called a conspiracy to target and arrest educated young Muslim men under the “pretext of IS”.

This, they apprehend, is a ploy to create terror among the community, which will create a problem for the country in the long run. “Arrest of innocent Muslim youths on one hand, and steps for release of the accused in big Hindutva terror cases (on the other), prove that the ruling party is implementing its communal agenda and its slogan of ‘sabka saath sabka vikas’ was a mirage,” the organisations said Monday.

The six groups are Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, Ahle Hadees, All-India Majlis-e-Mushawarat, Milli Council, and the Welfare Party.

Alleging that there appears to be a motive behind demonising the community, S Q R T Ilyas of All-India Muslim Personal Law Board and Welfare Party said Home Minister Rajnath Singh had said at a counter-terror conference held in March last year that there was no IS in India. “What explains the vacillations since,” he asked. “Has one year suddenly made most educated young (Muslims) suspects?”

The group claimed that in 2014 only 18 of 141 people apprehended were chargesheeted, and the remaining 123 were found innocent.

Most of these people, too, would probably be released by higher courts, they said, alleging that young men from the community are picked up randomly and charged with being either terrorists or sympathisers.

They made seven demands of the NDA government, including “full expose of the Hindutva terror network uncovered by slain (Mumbai Police) ATS chief Hemant Karkare, and cases brought to light by admissions of Swami Aseemanand”. Thy also demanded formation of a panel to work as “watchdog” and look into cases of arrests made on “mere suspicion”.

    These groups are fronts of the hardliners to pressurize the govt. into inaction , and to peion the opposition for support in parliament. All the arrests so far have been on the basis of monitoring over a period of time , some alarming communication intercepts, or intelligence from cooperative foreign agencies. Yes they may be let off by courts, but the arrests are justified for the agencies . "Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas" is no mirage, as no minority organization, business, businessman, professional, or govt. servant has been victimized, and they have only prospered.

        Look at their charge,which means if these people do any anti national act police should not take any action.It is generally said'wolf in sheep clothing' but here wolf in his own clothing is showing his sharp teeth. Do we are notsupposed to take note of such elements who are enjoying every benefit and comfort in this country but are loyal to masters sitting outside the country.IMore surprising is that many misguided people here start crying intolerance when such elements are exposed.Shame on such people.

          These Is and ISI sympathisers should listen to or read what UAE foreign minister has just said, and about deportations by Turkey, Syria, Iraq, UAE, Saudi Arabia, and the grounds. They should also educate themselves from revelations on the activities of such accused.

              With media house like IE and reporting like this, does India really need a foe? Coloring everything with lens of religion, serving one-sided view with intent to polarize nation and create social unrest, providing platforms to rowdy elements and groups with aim to deflect nation's attention from real significant issues that threaten the unity and integrity of the nation; all in the name of journalism. Shame on you guys.

                Let there also be statistics on the number of people wrongly arrested on terror accusations. Without those figures, how are we to know that only Muslims are being omly targeted?

                    Indian muslims are involved in the ISIS, so if the police is checking on them there is legitimate reason for this. Quit acting like victims when you are morons.

                      om arrest of Muslim Youth , bing them Terrorists instantly on TV breaking news , without any investigation and prosecution is unfair and biased. Young Muslim men are often pickedup and jailed for long periods on terror charges with fabricated and false evidence with concocted stories. This is a police sham and investigation scandal of enormous proportion for our nation. An immeasurable damage is done to the life’s of hundreds of innocent Muslim youth and their suffering families in the name of Sham terror investigation by ATS and police and now NIA. frame muslim youth / students under false and fabricated terror charges and built up imaginary cases. Sorry state of affairs of investigation agencies and Ruling party . There is a realistic data which shows large number of young Muslims are put in prison with imaginary cases without trial or charge-sheet for years. The police and the media are deep prejudice against Muslims continue...Police and government has bed the Muslims as "Terrorists and Jihadi ," though it is not known and proved they have committed any acts of violence and crime in court of law... Evil isis war happening Continents away from India, but Indian youth bed isis fighters ,Terrorist, jihadi in India ....This is juss too much of filmy stories by police and investigation dept.

                        Dear Modiji when you meet Dr. Man Mohan Singhji PM of India on 29.8.2008 for safety of Gujarat ? India from JeM terrorists those attacked Ahmadabad by serial Bomb Blasts on 16.08.2008, Why and how the 10 Fidayeens of stan did attack in Mumbai on 26.11.2008. What UPA I did in 2008 to prevent the JeM Muslim Jihadi attack in India from 2002 Gujarat riots to 1.1.2016 on our Pathankot AIR Base by JeM. ====IntelliBriefs IntelliBriefs bring you Intelligence briefs on Geopolitics , Security and Intelligence from around the world . We gather information and insights from multiple sources and present you in a digestible format to quench your thirst for right perspective, with right information at right time at right place . We encourage people to contact us with any relevant information that other news media organizations don't cover . Contact : AUGUST 29, 2008 Narendra Modi met PM over national and Gujarat related security issues Ahmedabad, DeshGujarat, 30th of August, 2008 Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Friday (August 29) met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and made a strong demand for giving ent to a bill to combat terror and organised crime(GUJCOC) in the state. National Security Adviser M K Narayanan was also present in this meeting. Meeting went on for 45 minutes in Prime Minister office. READ GujCOC Bill : Union Government haven't sorted out "policy issues" yet ? Modi explained to the Prime Minister that the law similar to the Gujarat Control of Organised Crime Act was already operational in Maharashtra, then why not in Gujarat? Modi harped on the need for “strong laws” to prevent youngsters from falling prey to terrorists who were looking to recruit them for their anti-national activities. Modi said there was a need for border fencing and special training and providing modern equipment to the forces engaged in border security. Modi said he was not interested in playing politics on the issue of terrorism. “A political will is needed to further strengthen the police force including giving them more legal powers and resources. I requested the Prime Minister to immediately p Gujarat’s law against organised crime, which has been ped twice by the embly, and has been lying with the Centre for the past four years. It is important to understand that this law exists in Maharashtra and if a bomb blast takes place they can use it, but if it happens in Gujarat just 50 km away I don’t have the law. I want to tell those politicians who have their minds filled with vote bank politics that there were terrorist activities even when POTA was in force and that despite having Section 302 (of IPC which gives death penalty for murder) murders do take place. Does this mean we remove this clause? I apprised them about the information revealed by the terrorists arrested for their involvement in the Ahmedabad blasts. There is a need for co-ordination between the Centre and states and also among the states to combat terror. It has come to light that states which are doing well economically are especially being targeted. I requested the Prime Minister to call a meeting of such states and he has agreed to it. I also requested the Prime Minister that since Gujarat is a border and coastal state there is a need to re-look and upgrade its security.I am not here as a BJP leader but as a voice of the Gujarat embly which represents 5.5 crore people. We should face terrorism as a united force,” he said, when asked if he felt the BJP-ruled states were being discriminated against by the Centre in the fight against terror. I hope the Prime Minister and the government in Delhi will show political will and take a decision soon” Modi said after his meeting with the Prime Minister.

                            It has become a common practice to look for problem outside. Look inside your religious texts. Ask yourself where in text it was preached that you are above other humans, eliminate text that says you are allowed to do terrible harm to other humans in the name of God. God created everyone and asked us to help each other, not to kill each other. Do you a all agree?

                              Review how your ideology of hate in some sects religious books are used to create the fanatics. These texts are making them forget they are human beings. They think God gave them power to kill or enslave other humans. If God created everyone, no one has right to kill or enslave others. First review what was said in your books to bring peace. Whoever says you are above others is not human.

                                    The terror accused , who were released for lack of evidence , is not honourable aquittals. Police do not have clinching evidence , but suion persists.

                                      yes their demand is logical and all arrests should be made transparent. They don't have any responsibility for Pathankot attack because the attackers were not of their religion. they dont have any thing to do with the latest revelations made by Hedley but they are the so called guardians of the youths wwho are arrested by NIA and NIA doesn't have any right to do so. why the securities agencies are blocking the training of months by these innocent and educated younths.

These people will never stop and reducate their own eventhough worldover this briotherhood has killed innocent people left and right. What a sad scenario. I used to be liberal once.
