Jamiat hails SC ruling on NRC|
NEW DELHI, Dec 6 - Calling it a grand victory of justice that assured citizenship of lakhs of people, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind general secretary Maulana Syed Mahmood Asad Madani and Jamiat Ulama-i-Assam president Badruddin Ajmal said the Centre and the Assam government failed to convince the Supreme Court and the judgement proved a big blow to the conspiracy hatched to deprive people of their rightful citizenship.
Expressing their gratitude to all those who contributed in the fight or helped it with their prayers, the two leaders said the Supreme Court issued a historic judgement in the Assam citizenship case. It came as a sigh of relief for about 48 lakh people, especially the married women whose citizenship was at risk.
The Jamiat said the Gauhati High Court ruling was very alarming for about 48 lakh people who submitted panchayat certificates as supporting documents to prove family linkage.
