Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind has moved the Supreme Court seeking directions to the Uttar Pradesh government to ensure that no further demolitions are carried out without following due process.

Houses of Muslim figures including prominent Muslim activist Afreen Fatima demolished after thousands of Muslims protested across Uttar Pradesh and they were arrested by the police for being alleged ‘masterminds’ of protests over anti-prophet Muhammed remarks.

The top Muslim body’s application has sought directions to initiate action against officials responsible for the houses demolished in violation of the rule of law and the municipal laws enacted by the State of Uttar Pradesh, reported Live Law. NNI
