The Karkardooma District Court of Delhi has acquitted both Umar Khalid and Khalid Saifi in the northeast Delhi riots case. It should be remembered that the same court had denied Umar bail in March 2002, writes Syed Hassan Kazim
The FIR in the case was registered on the basis of the false statement of Constable Sangram Singh who said a “riotous mob” had pelted stones on Main Karawal Nagar Road, besides setting ablaze several vehicles in a nearby parking lot on February 24, 2020. Though Umar will have to remain in jail because the Delhi high court has denied him bail in the UAPA case.
All just because of their religion and thought, without giving any punishment is such a shame which no any flag could ever be able to cover. And then there is a bigger shame of the #UAPA case in which the #DelhiHighCourt didn’t give bail to Umar because of which he will have to remain in jail.
Indeed it’s an occasion to be glad that Umar Khalid and Khalid Saifi have been acquitted in the #DelhiRiotsCase. Though they deserved this, but at the same time the courts letting loose those criminals in uniform who fabricate fake charges against people of conscience like Umar, Sharjeel Imam, Khalid, Meeran Haider, Gulfishan Fatima.
This is nothing but torture of an individual because of the communal bias of many institutions around led by the society and state. More power to Umar, Khalid, Sharjeel, Gulfishan, Meeran and all, in fact, everyone who is in the line of fire of a communal state. By the way, which court of justice will give these people their lost days back just because somewhere, someone sitting at the top wanted them to be in jail to satisfy the collective conscience of a biased, communal mass?
The uniformed criminals who charged these conscience keepers in fake cases will now be on a prowl to arrest some other #Muslim youths on fake terror charges to ruin their lives and that of their families, in the name of nation and religion.
