The All-India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Sunday demanded that hundreds of Muslim youths “falsely” jailed on terror charges should be freed.

A working committee meeting of the Board held here strongly condemned police and other law-enforcing agencies for picking up Muslim youths who are not involved in terror activities.

“Despite being lodged in the jails for a long time, they have not been charge-sheeted”,  said the members unanimously.

They also demanded that the government should adequately compensate the youths who were acquitted in terror cases after long incarceration.

CPM leaders Prakash Karat and Subhashini Ali had raised the same issue when they called on  Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav earlier this week.

They demanded compensation for nine Muslim youths who had been absolved of terror charges by courts and released from jail.

The meeting also decided to oppose the proposal for compulsory registration of marriages and demanded that registration be made voluntary.

The members said some states like West Bengal and Assam have already adopted a lenient view on this issue.

The meeting, chaired by Maulana Rabe Hasan Nadvi, was convened to finalise the agenda for the Board’s three-day meeting to be held in Ujjain later this month.
