Hyderabad: Dr. Asma Zehra, President, Muttahida Tahafuz-e-Shariat Committee for Women told that during the past two weeks, Muslim women were subjected to atrocities in UP. She strongly condemned these incidents and said that in all the four cases, the miscreants deliberately attacked Muslim girls and women. She further told that after Yogi took over as CM of UP, atrocities on minorities have increased by 40%. Govt. of UP is blacking out all such important news items on TV channels and in newspapers. Gang rape and throwing acid for residing in Hindu area and injuring seriously, throwing a burqa-clad Muslim woman by CRPF constable from the running train in Bijnor in the state of fasting and after gang rape, causing woman unconscious are all the incidents of atrocities on Muslim women.
Police and administration are not allowing any relatives to meet the victims. Even the activists of Human Rights Organization are not allowed to meet them. In all these cases, Govt. is destroying important evidences and proofs.
She also told that police and administration are engaged in saving the culprits as they did in Bilkis Bano case. She requested Muslim leaders and organizations to raise their voice against these atrocities, otherwise there is an apprehension that during the regime of Yogi, atrocities on Muslim women would increase. She also appealed to Women’s Commission to take immediate steps for eradicating such atrocities.
