Jama’at refutes allegations leveled by agencies, terms it defamatory


Srinagar, Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir while refuting all allegations leveled by different agencies and Delhi officials as baseless, biased and unfounded, makes it amply clear that Jama’at is formed for propagation of the message and teachings of Islam based on justice, peace and equality, in its true form in a peaceful, democratic and lawful way and never adopts any underground, violent or disruptive methods for achieving its cherished goal.
According to a statement issued to KNS, Jamaat said the party constitution of Jama’at strictly prohibits the use of any undemocratic, unlawful or violent method, causing any law and order problem or strife on the earth. So the concocted allegations that Jama’at or any of its wings is, in any way involved in spreading or promoting any kind of terrorism or violence is totally false and baseless, being outside the purview of the activities of the organization. It is simply a defamatory campaign against Jama’at in order to justify the ban which under no legal system in vogue in the civilized world can be justified. Jama’at has made it amply clear time and again that it is not a constituent of any of the factions of the Hurriyat Conference but still then Jama’at is blamed for promoting and accelerating the activities of this conglomerate of different political factions of Jammu and Kashmir. In the similar way, Jama’at has time and again denied having any direct or indirect link with any underground militant organization but despite it, it is blamed to be promoter of violence and terrorism.
Jama’at has no link with any other organization outside the boundaries of Jammu and Kashmir but still it is falselesly blamed to have links with the organizations working in other countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh, which is nothing but a blatant lie. The youth wing of Jama’at, Islami Jamiat-e-Tulaba has its own constitution which is non-political in nature and its activities are restricted to the field of general education and moral building. The state administration or the agencies cannot cite a single example to show its involvement even in an agitation which under a democratic set-up is lawful and a constitutional right. It has contributed a lot towards educational upliftment of the society. The educational institutions which are blamed to be controlled by Jama’at are in fact independent institutions where the government recognized syllabi is in vogue and to link these educational institutions with any illegal or terrorist activity, is as false as calling a day, a night.
Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir, while vehemently refuting all the allegations leveled by different agencies against it of its having any direct, indirect or even remote link with any activity contravening any of the law in vogue in this state, as baseless and concocted, demands the revocation of the ban imposed upon it, to uphold the democratic values and the constitutional guarantees regarding the freedoms of speech and religion. Jama’at clarifies it that it stands on its own for its financial necessities and does not receive any illegal funds whatsoever, from anywhere. This fact is known to every official of the state and its agencies well confirmed by them. (KNS)
