In this regard, the National President of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Maulana Mahmood A. Madani on Monday sent a letter to the Home Minister Amit Shah and Delhi Police Commissioner Shri Rakesh Asthana. Apart from this, a delegation led by Maulana Hakeemuddin Qasmi, General Secretary, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, called on Jaspal Singh, Joint Police Commissioner, New Delhi Range and Deepak Yadav, DCP at his makeshift camp at Jantar Mantar and handed over a copy of the said letter to them.

“The hate shouting video is being circulated and shared by a large number of people on social media platforms. It has hurt the Muslims and peace-loving people across all communities,” reads the letter.

“I would like to request you to kindly instruct concerned officers at the Ministry of Home Affairs and Delhi Police to take stern actions against the culprits who are found involved in this. I am apprehensive about the situation developing in Delhi, and the law and order of Delhi is being put at risk by extremist groups once again and a situation like Delhi Riots 2020 may recur if such elements are not punished,” the letter says.

The letter also mentioned the statement of the newly appointed commissioner of Police, Delhi, Rakesh Asthana Ji, who has affirmed that communal harmony and fairness will be his top priority. “But mere assurance is not enough; this must be followed by action,” JIH said.
