Jasim raised junaid Lynching issue in minority commission

The Chairman 
National Commission for Minorities (NCM)
Govt. of India
New Delhi.

Sub: In reference to the ‘rising lynching incidents’ and in particular the  recent lynching case of Junaid in  a train.

Esteemed Sir,

Forum for Muslim Studies & Analysis (FMSA), Aligarh is deeply concerned on the rising incidents of lynching innocent people on pretext of cow  protection .The most recent and much publicised lynching is of Junaid, a Hafiz-e-Quran (one who knows Quran by heart) of tender age while returning to his home town from Delhi in a train . In this connection, on behalf of the FMSA, I wish to point out that :

1.   Lynching of Junaid has not only received wide publicity but has been widely condemned by every section of society.
2.   The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi himself took up issue publicly and said that , 'no person has right to take law in his own hands’ and ‘killing people in the name of Gau Rakhsha ( cow protection ) is unacceptable.’
3.   National Commission for Minorities ( NCM ) is an statuary body constituted for the protection of rights of the minorities .
4.   I must remind you about UN Declaration on the Rights of the Persons belonging to National or Ethnic ,Religious and Linguistic minorities on 18 December 1992 which says ", states shall protect the existence of the national or ethnic, cultural, religious and linguistic identity of minorities and encourage conditions for the promotion of that identity." India is signatory of the said UN Declaration and the NCM is observing 18 December as Minorities Rights Day every year.
5.   You will be aware that under Chapter III of Functions of the Commission ( NCM ), it is stipulated: "The commission will monitor the working of the Constitution and in laws enacted by Parliament and the state legislatures. It further says," the Commission will make recommendations for the effective implementation of safeguards for the  protection of the interests of minorities by the central government and the state governments look into specific complaints regarding deprivation of rights and safeguards of the minorities and take such matters with the appropriate authorities ‘.
6.   I believe that you will agree that presently the central and state government and the NCM have all failed in honouring the UN Declaration as well as Chapter III ( Functions  of the Commission ). There is dire need to take corrective steps. Will you please let me know about what steps have you taken according to UN Declaration or Chapter III of NCM Functions on incidents of lynching in general and on lynching of Junaid in particular ?

7.   It is expected by saner elements of Indian society in general and Muslims in particular that NCM may have taken some meaningful and effective steps to control and stop such lynching incidents.
8.   FMSA and the country wants to know whether the NCM has set up any Inquiry Committee or Commission on site and concerned places to inquire the circumstances leading to lynching of Junaid ? Please elaborate.
9.   The country also wants to know that whether you as the Chairman of NCM condemned the lynching of Junaid or not?

10.                As the country is fathoming economically under leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, such lynching incidents are not only negatively effecting development but also lowering image of central government and country. So have you taken any positive action to stop the said lynching? Please elaborate.

I am sending this petition to you on behalf of the Forum for Muslim Studies & Analysis ( FMSA ) Aligarh in good faith as FMSA is supporting developmental agenda of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi due to his "Sab Ka Saath , Sab Ka Vikas" policy. We are deeply concerned, so please take up the issue and let me know accordingly.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Dr. Jasim Mohammad
