Jamaat-e-Islami Hind to build houses for riot victims

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has announced to build 200 houses for the Muzaffarnagar riot victims.

A JIH delegation, led by its Secretary General Nusrat Ali, visited the relief camps at Loi, Budhana, Shahpur and Basi Kalan and assessed the relief and rehabilitation works.

The body also prepared a detailed report of all riots victims.

According to its report, a total of 113 persons were killed while 30 others went missing in the riots in Muzaffarnagar and adjoining districts.

In 113 killings, 97 are Muslims and 16 are Hindus, it said.

The delegation met with the victims, living in relief camps and listened to their problems. It also met with relief camps in-charges and assured them for providing all basic needs for affected persons.

The JIH is erecting one thousand water-proof tents which would save camps residents from cold and rain.

Meanwhile, All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat, an umbrella body of Indian Muslim organisations, also condemned the report submitted by the Samajwadi Party delegation after visiting Muzaffarnagar and adjoining areas today.

The Mushawarat also condemned the Samajwadi government's attempts to forcibly repatriate refugees against their wish to their villages where their relatives were killed and burned alive, where their houses were torched and where their women were raped and girls kidnapped.
