Popular Front of India chairman E. Abubacker in a statement issued here today urged the Uttar Pradesh government to refrain from the moves to withdraw cases against BJP leaders involved in Muzaffarnagar riots. It is alarming to know that the state government has sent letters to DM and SSP asking for their views on the withdrawal of 131 criminal cases including 13 of murder and 11 of attempt to murder in Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts of U. P.
E. Abubacker told that the wounds of the Muzaffarnagar riots 2013 in which 63 lives were lost and 50,000 were rendered homeless still bleeds and traumatizes lives of people there. The moves of the Yogi Adityanath government to save the culprits from justice are adding insult to injury. He also termed it an attack on the justice delivery system.
In another statement, Popular Front chairman E. Abubacker strongly condemned the heinous killing of 39 Indian workers in ISIS custody and conveyed condolences to the hapless relatives of the victims. It is tragic that they have to wait nearly four years in utter uncertainty to get a final confirmation of death once they went missing in June 2014 from Mosul in Iraq. Since then the External Affairs Ministry has been lying to the nation that they are alive and efforts to rescue them are in progress. E. Abubacker called for a thorough enquiry into the whole episode. He also demanded maximum compensation to the families of those who met with the tragic mass death.
