Srinagar, March 02, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jamaat-e-Islami while terming the imposition of ban on it by the Indian government as unconstitutional, undemocratic and unethical has said that it will move to court to challenge the action. The JI in a statement issued in Srinagar said the organization carries out its activities peacefully which are transparent and visible. “The Jamaat works on priority basis for propagation of Islamic teachings, development of society and dignity of humanity,” it said.
“The allegations levelled against the Jamaat are concocted and baseless. It will move to court and in this regards deliberations are going on with legal experts,” the statement added. It is to mention here that Indian police and troops in a massive crackdown have arrested over 400 leaders and activists of the Jamaat during the last one week.
The occupation authorities have sealed several properties belonging to Jamaat-e-Islami including residences of some of its activists. A police official in Srinagar said that several properties, including residential houses, belonging to various JI leaders and activists were sealed in many areas of the city and elsewhere in the Valley on Friday night. He said bank accounts of JI leaders have also been frozen.
