Jamaat-e-Islami to adopt 1,000 riot-hit Muzaffarnagar families
Jamaat-e-Islami Hind will adopt 1,000 families, displaced from five villages of riot-hit areas of Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar, and rehabilitate them in their original homes.
"Thousands of Muzaffarnagar riot-hit displaced families are forced to live in extremely small relief camps or under open sky without shelter in miserable conditions with very poor sanitation facilities, therefore Jamaat-e-Islami Hind's relief and rehabilitation committee has decided to adopt 1,000 selected families," all India secretary Mohammad Shafi Madani said in a release here.
The organisation will try to rehabilitate the families immediately, he said.
"We are doing legal works including registering FIRs. We will strive for providing suitable compensations from the government to each victim and will also pressurize the government for proper compensation to all people who suffered any loss and damage of property and commodities.
"We will also focus on communal harmony and create a good atmosphere in the riot-hit areas and will strive for building good mutual relationships between Muslims and Hindus, and Muslims and Jats," he added.
