India Muslims Set Free After Unjustified Jail
A court order declaring Noorul Huda innocent of terror charges after five years in prison did not bring much relief to the young Muslim who suffered humiliation, abuse and racial profiling behind jail bars.
“I was arrested during Ramadan. But despite my appeal, the jail authorities refused to provide any food or drink to me to help me break my fast,” Noorul Huda told OnIslam.net.
“They stripped me, and they hit me on my legs and head with stick. They also kicked my private organs and I nearly fainted in pain.”
The misery of the 24-year-old Muslim followed terror attacks in Malegaon, a town in southern India with a large Muslim population, in 2006.
Following the attacks, which killed 38 and injured more than 100 people, mostly Muslims, the forces of Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) arrested Noorul Huda along with eight other Muslim young men.
Soon after their arrest, the ATS charged the nine young Muslim men, announcing that the terror attack case had been solved.
As the men were sent to jail custody, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), another federal agency, confirmed that the men were guilty.
“They also threatened to abduct my sister and rape my sister if I did not sign a confessional statement by declaring that I was part of the team that bombed Malegaon,” the young Muslim added.
The first light towards proving their innocence appeared after 2008 attacks when India’s premier federal investigation agency, National Investigation Agency (NIA), was established to investigate terrorist cases across the country.
Indentifying four Hindu radicals as culprits behind the Malegaon attack, the agency announced two weeks ago there was no proof to link the nine Muslim men.
As it became clear that the Muslim youths were wrongly accused in the case, India’s junior home minister R P N Singh has described the arrest and jailing of the youths as “extremely unfortunate”.
“Malegaon case shows that the government’s decision to hand over the investigation to the NIA was a right move. It’s extremely unfortunate that some innocent people were arrested and charge-sheeted in the case,” Singh said.
“We will take all necessary actions to ensure that such incident (of wrongful jailing of any innocent person) is not repeated in future.”
