MCOCA COURT ALLOWS SUSPECTS TO OBSERVE RAMADHAN IN JAILS

Inside India

A special MCOCA court hearing most of the terror cases in Mumbai granted permission to dozens of accused for observing Ramadhan in jails. The accused, charged with being part of terror suspects or taking part in bomb blasts, had filed an application in the court seeking permission to fast in jail. “The application was filed by the Jamiat-ul-Ulema, an NGO that is taking care of legal cases of the accused. Jamiat on behalf of 7/11 train blast accused, Kamal Ansari, stated in the court that Ramadhan is a holy month and the time for sehri (pre-dawn meal) and iftar (breaking fast at sunset) is different from the time the jail food is served. Hence, the jail authorities be instructed to provide them food at the sehri and iftar time,” the applicants stated. Judge YD Shinde asked the jail authorities to give their say and later sanctioned the permission for Muslim jail inmates to fast in the jail.
