New Delhi: Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC), an advocacy group dedicated to safeguard India’s pluralist and tolerant ethos, welcomes the Supreme Court of India’s decision to grant bail to noted human rights activist Dr Binayak Sen.
IAMC along with its friends in the international human rights community is relieved that the apex court has taken the first step in putting an end to a series of grave injustices committed against an innocent man at the behest of powerful business interests by the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Chhattisgarh Government.
“Supreme Court’s move to drop sedation charges against Binayak Sen restores the credibility of India’s justice system, which was severely damaged by the lower court earlier this year,” said IAMC President Shaheen Khateeb.
“We commend the persistence of all our friends and coalition partners everywhere along with the 22 Nobel laureates who campaigned for the past 4 years to demand justice for Dr Sen,” Khateeb further added.
IAMC demands a thorough and expedited review by the Supreme Court of the alleged conviction of Dr Sen and hope that the apex court would intervene appropriately to right the many wrongs committed against Dr Sen by the lower courts.
Indian American Muslim Council (formerly Indian Muslim Council-USA) is the largest advocacy organization of Indian Muslims in the United States with 10 chapters across the nation.
