On Thursday, a group of women belonging to a Muslim organisation held a congregation at Saidabad Ujale Shah Eidgah grounds. Over a hundred Muslim women congregated to hold a “prayer meeting” protesting the Supreme Court verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi case where the court awarded the entire 67-acre land to Hindus and mandated that the Muslims would get an alternate 5 acre land in Ayodhya to build their Mosque. The main leaders of this congregation were two daughters of one cleric Maulana Abdul Aleem Islahi — Shabista and Zille Huma.
The police had initially denied permission to them, but later it granted conditional accord, saying they were not supposed to disrupt peace and refrain from communal utterances.
However, the group of Muslim women who had congregated to protest against the Ayodhya verdict raised several communally charged slogans. In a video that emerged, the Muslim women can be seen raising several slogans like ‘todenge todenge, Ram Mandir todenge’ (we will break Ram Mandir), ‘laathi goli khayenge, Babri Masjid banayenge’ (we don’t mind being beaten up with sticks or being shot at, but we will make the Babri Masjid), ‘humari arzoo, shahadat shahadat’. With the slogans of Naara-e-Taqbeer and Allaho Akbar, the Muslim women were seeing stoking tension by vowing to break the Ram Mandir that will be built at Ayodhya and build Babri Masjid.
After raising the slogans, speaking to the media, the group’s leader criticised the Supreme Court verdict in strong words. She said that the Muslim women do now want ‘charity’. And while raising hateful slogans, hilariously, the Muslim lady said that this verdict has proven that the Supreme Court has ‘surrendered to Hindu terrorists’ and that, the verdict is based on faith and not facts. She further said that Allah has already delivered his verdict, and they will only listen to Allah, on Mosques and that their claim on Babri Masjid would remain till a Mosque is not build at the same site.
She further stoked passions by blaming Muslim organisations of being ‘cowardly’. She said that because they were being ‘cowards’, Muslim women had to come out on the streets to protest. Almost threatening, she said that Muslims are apparently being suppressed and that nobody will understand how the Muslim’s anger against the Ayodhya verdict will manifest itself.
Two daughters of one cleric Maulana Abdul Aleem Islahi — Shabista and Zille Huma have been booked under 124 (A). A case has also been made under IPC Sections 153 A&B (promoting enmity and hatred between the two communities) and 295A (deliberate and malicious acts to outrage religious feelings) has also been filed. Sector sub-inspector DD Singh had filed a complaint with the station house officer, upon which the police issued an FIR.
“We have found the content of the programme highly inflammatory and the congregation had tried to create communal enmity the two communities”, said Saidabad inspector K Srinivas according to Times of India. On Friday, the police tightened security around Mecca Masjid to thwart possible protest after the prayers in connection with the arrest of DJS president and four others by police in a conspiracy case. The task force had picked up four DJS activists from Golconda. Rapid Action Force was deployed near the Mecca Masjid.
The Police also said, “Around 110 Muslim women and girls under the leadership of one woman Jille Huma unlawfully gathered and congregated in the Ujalesha Eidgah ground and offered prayers. After completion of prayers for about 20 minutes, Huma held the mic and raised provocative slogans”.
Amjed Ullah Khan, the Ex Corporator, 35 Azampura Division and youth leader of Majlis Bachao Tehreek in Hyderabad and the son of Amanatullah Khan condemned the case being registered against the Muslim women saying that “praying” is a right granted under the constitution.
