Indian Muslim organisations and leaders on Wednesday called the murder of a Hindu man in India a disgrace to humanity and an act of defaming Islam.
Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, a leading Muslim organisation, said in a statement that no one has the authority to take laws into their own hands.
This comes a day after police arrested two Muslim men for allegedly killing a Hindu man. The two men also threatened to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the same manner.
Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind’s President, Maulana Mahmood Asad Madani condemned the killing, saying "this incident is a great challenge to the law enforcement agencies of the country. No matter whosoever is the killer, no one has the authority to take law into his own hands.”
He added that Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind is against all forms of extremism and demands that strict action should be taken against such persons.
Social Democratic Party of India’s National Secretary, Taslim Ahmed Rehmani also said: "this murder cannot be accepted in a civilized society. I demand fast track court shall try this case and murderers must be hanged publicly.”
