The leaders of Muslim organisations on May 29 met to decide the ways in order to counter the whole effort to terrorise and demonise individual Muslims and the community as a whole by illegal picking up of the youths. The members came to the decision to form a separate fund that would look into the financial requirements of the cases and a ‘legal cell’ to provide judicial assistance for those in need. The fact is that since the time of the inception of TADA and POTA, the accused in 98 per cent of cases were innocent. The most important thing to do at this moment is to raise awareness which is why the members decided to reach out to the international communities and organisations to look into the matter.
