‘Have no links with militant groups, do not believe in agitational politics’: Jamaat-e-Islami on NIA raids at its premises in J&Okay

Distancing itself from the “terror-financing allegations” over which dozens of its premises in Jammu and Kashmir had been raided by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) final week, the three former chiefs of Jamaat-e-Islami have mentioned that the organisation “has no direct or tacit link with any militant group”.

This is the primary time that the Jamaat has issued an announcement since being banned in February 2019.

“Jamaat has time and again made it quite clear that it had no direct or tacit touch or link with any militant group and all such allegations against Jamaat were false… Jamaat never believed in agitational politics and had never employed any such methods which might cause any least disturbance in the law-and-order situation or any kind of strife on the earth,” the press assertion issued collectively by Sheikh Ghilam Hassan, Ghulam Mohammad Bhat and Mohammad Abdullah Wani learn.

It added, “Jamaat always employed propagatory methods, verbal as well as written, to carry forward its mission, programmes and policies which were beneficial for the entire human society. But despite this fact, it was banned and declared as an ‘unlawful association’ a number of times without any rhyme or reason, levelling such allegations which had no basis but were all against the facts, in total ignorance of the real situation.”

The assertion additional mentioned that the “public services of the organisation were ignored” whereas banning the outfit on some “flimsy and concocted allegations”.

Making a reference to the 1998 press convention of the then Jamaat chief Ghulam Mohammad Bhat the place he had categorically distanced the organisation from any militant organisation, the assertion mentioned that Jamat is a “peaceful, democratic and transparent” organisation.

“Jamat was made for propagating Islamic teachings among the public in its pristine form and for the social services of the humanity without any discrimination,” the assertion mentioned, whereas including, “(Jamat was made) in particular to provide material assistance to the economically and educationally downtrodden section of the general public from its lawfully created resources.”

Distancing Jamat from separatist politics, the three former Chiefs have mentioned that the organisation is just not a constituent of the separatist conglomerate Hurriyat Conference for a very long time.

“Jamaat had dissociated from the Hurriyat Conference (both factions) in 2008 and as such doesn’t remain a unit of any of these factions therefrom. It is hereby further cleared that Jamaat was neither a creation of any political issue nor had so far created such an issue. If there was any such public political issue, Jamaat too was affected only because of being a part of the public at large.” The assertion learn.

The three former Chiefs additionally referred to as for the lifting of the ban. “It is hoped that the ban on it will be lifted forthwith thereby allowing this human-friendly socio-religious organisation to work freely for the cause of humanity,” the assertion added.
