UP police thrash Muslim voters: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind urges EC probe

UP police thrash Muslim voters: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind urges EC probe

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, a socio-religious organization, has called upon the Election Commission of India to thoroughly investigate alleged voter suppression targeting Muslims and marginalized communities.

Citing media reports, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind highlighted cases from Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal district, where police allegedly assaulted voters in Muslim-majority villages at polling booths. The organization emphasized the need for immediate corrective measures to prevent the recurrence of such events in future electoral phases.

In a related judicial matter, the Supreme Court dismissed a plea seeking the disqualification of Prime Minister Narendra Modi from contesting elections for six years. The petition argued that Modi solicited votes in the name of religion, contravening electoral norms.

Specifically, it was alleged that he invoked Hindu deities and sacred sites during his campaign for the ongoing Lok Sabha polls. However, the Supreme Court found no grounds to disqualify the Prime Minister, allowing him to continue his election campaign.

In another electoral controversy, BJP’s Hyderabad candidate, Madhavi Latha, alleged that a minor girl was caught casting a vote in the constituency, raising questions about voter integrity.

This allegation followed a series of contentious events, including Latha being booked for misconduct. She was accused of making Muslim voters remove their veils to verify their identities at a polling station, an action seen as targeting the Muslim community.

Earlier in April, Latha faced accusations of hurting religious sentiments by miming an act of shooting an arrow at a mosque during a procession. Latha expressed frustration over the lack of action against others, despite FIRs being registered against her, which she described as being treated like “medals.”
