NCHRO is concerned about the vindictive action by the Delhi police against Dr. SQR Ilyas, the National President of the Welfare Party. The Delhi police which is under the direct control of the home ministry have now included the name of Dr Ilyas in the charge sheet as one who has instigated violence in the city.
Interestingly the names of the real villains who engineered the riots, like Kapil Mishra, Jagdeesh Pradhan and Mohan Singh were not included in the charge sheet. Dr Ilyas is a respected leader in the Delhi, who stands for peace and harmony. It is said that he gave a provocative speech in Chand Bagh which instigated the rioters. Yet the majority of people brutally attacked and killed in the riots were Muslims.
The struggle against the CAA and NRC all over India was a peace full one appreciated by neutral observers.
NCHRO condemns the vindictive and partisan action of the Delhi Police and urges it to withdraw the charges against Dr.Ilyas and urges the Delhi police to arrest the real murderers and culprits actually responsible for the violence.
