    Muslim institute 'training girls for jihad', Mumbai Police memo reveals - The Times of India

    MUMBAI: Mumbai Police has kicked up a controversy following its circular which says the women's wing of an Islamic organization is "brainwashing and training girls for jihad". The outfit has threatened legal action if no apology is tendered by the police.

    The "internal circular" said the Girls Islamic Organization (GIO) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, one of the country's largest Islamic organizations that runs 40 high schools and three junior colleges in Maharashtra, has been operating with the objective of "brainwashing college and school girls and train them for jihad".

    "The group GIO is related to Jamaat-e-Islami Hind and it was established in Kerala. The purported aim of this organization is to make more and more Muslim women aware of their religion and the holy Quran. But the real objective of this organization is to brainwash school and college girls and train them for jihad," the circular, issued last month, says.

    The document, meant for internal circulation, got leaked and has invited the wrath of Jamaat with its Maharashtra spokesman Mohammad Aslam Ghazi threatening to sue the police department if it does not apologise.

    Ghazi alleged it was a deliberate attempt to tarnish the image of the socio-religious organization.

    "The circular was leaked with vicious intentions. The allegations against GIO are false and baseless," he said.

    "The Mumbai Police either has to prove the allegations or apologize for the error. Otherwise, we would sue them for defamation," said Ghazi, adding their organization worked for "peace, justice and to fight against prejudice of the state machinery".

    Mumbai Police spokesman Satyanarayana Choudhary said "the circular was meant to be only for the department and not for public."

    Earlier, Mumbai Police had got embroiled in a row over a poem by a traffic police inspector Sujata Patil published in an issue of the force's in-house journal 'Samwad' where she had described last year's Azad Maidan protesters as "snakes" and "traitors" whose hands should have been "chopped off". Amid threat of legal action and mounting anger of Mulim organizations, Patil had apologised in writing. The apology was published in the next issue of 'Samwad'.

    Serious matter. Also, the Cops need to be freed from political clout else they'll turn into private armies of our politicians
    I've heard that even ASIs get shot for every petty reason these days.

    Some latest on the same topic ;- Mumbai police face defamation suit for false terror circular - Mumbai Mirror

    Mumbai police face defamation suit for false terror circular

    An internal Special Branch note dubs the Girls Islamic Organisation, a well-known body that teaches the Quran to girls, a terror group
    The Jamat-e-Islami Hind, a wellknown organisation that runs more than 500 educational institutions across the country, has threatened to sue the Mumbai police for defamation if they do not apologise for a Special Branch circular that alleged that members of its women’s wing “were indoctrinating college girls and imparting training in jihad.”

    The Girls Islamic Organisation is a branch of the hardline Jamat, one of India’s largest Islamic organisation that runs 40 high schools and 3 junior colleges in Maharashtra.

    On Sunday, Jamat office bearers told Mumbai Mirror that they are preparing legal action against the Mumbai police for defaming their organisation. Additional Commissioner of Police, Special Branch, Naval Bajaj, whose signature the memo bears, sought to distance himself from the controversy and said the communication was an internal circular that was never meant to be in the public domain.

    “The circular was meant for internal purpose only,” Bajaj told this newspaper. “It was not supposed to be in the public domain but unfortunately it is now in the public domain. And the damage has been done. No officer will write a report on his own without getting the information.”

    The circular, issued in the third week of March, read: “The group GIO is an offshoot of the 65-year-old Jamat-e-Islami Organisation and is currently active in Kerala. The purported aim of this organisation is to make more and more Muslim women aware of their religion and the holy Quran.

    But the real objective of this organisation is to brainwash college and school girls and train them for jihad.” The circular also names two women – Saleha Baji and Sumayya – as heading the organisation. The Jamat dubbed the circular as a conspiracy to malign Islam and Muslims.

    “We run 40 high schools and three junior colleges just in Maharashtra,” said Mohammad Aslam Ghazi, spokesperson, Jamat-e-Islami Hind, Maharashtra. “There seems to be no rhyme or reason to relate the Girls’ Islamic Organisation to terrorist activities. We are meeting Bajaj with a delegation on Monday to ask why the circular was issued. If he doesn’t apologise, we will file a case of defamation.” Ghazi said the Jamat-e-Islami Hind was a socio-religious organisation working for peace, justice and to fight against prejudice injected by the state machinery.

    “GIO is our daughter organisation, instituted to provide girls with both Islamic and modern education,” said Ghazi. “The defamatory circular is a result of the communal minds deeply ingrained among our administrative, intelligence and security agencies.”

    Activists slammed the Mumbai police for what they said was a prejudiced and baseless circular. Mumbai-based criminal lawyer Majeed Memon said such circulars only created panic, suspicion and avoidable controversies.

    “While it is true that the security of citizens is paramount, it is equally important that policemen do not abuse their powers under the guise of security by harassing a section of the society,” said Memon. “Aren’t policemen expected to keep an eye on everyone; why Muslim women alone?”

    Rizwan Merchant, another criminal lawyer, said “Every religious group is free to practice and preach their own religion. On the other hand by issuing such circulars it shows that the roving eyes of the police and it also means invasion of privacy of Muslim women.”

    the mumbai police is absolutely right in issuing circulars based on actual intelligence.this circular is meant for police and not for public consumption.if we say that there is no domestic islamic terrorism in india sponsored by pakis and saudis through madrasas who are indoctrinating hatred among young muslim boys and girls towards their fellow countrymen and spreading the message of jihad,then we are living in denial and recent hyderabad blasts are a grim reminder of this situation.the political patronage these organisations receive from "secular" parties are the main reason of their unabated survival and at least the police should be free to do whatever little they can to mitigate the situation.
