Sufia Madani has urged the intervention of the Central government and the Human Rights Commission for the release of her husband Abdul Nasser Madani from jail for medical treatment. She said that a petition would be filed before the Bangalore court on Monday for seeking permission for Madani to attend his daughter’s wedding on March 10.
In a press conference held at the Ernakulam Press Club, Sufia Madani stated that urgent steps should be taken to save the life of Madani. “He should be released on bail for getting better medical treatment. He is suffering from visual ailments, with the retina of his right eye fully dysfunctional and that of the left eye partially affected. He is diabetic and hence, the doctors are unwilling to conduct surgery. He is also suffering from renal diseases. There are swellings on his legs and he is unable to walk,” she said.
Sufia said that her daughter’s wedding would be held on March 10 and the presence of her father is mandatory for the function. “We would request the court to allow him to attend the wedding. His presence is needed for the rituals including giving our daughter’s hand in marriage,” Sufia said.
