The Delhi High Court on Tuesday allowed bail to Safoora Zargar, 27 year old student of Jamia Milia Islamia University under custody for alleged conspiracy behind Delhi riots, after the Delhi Police stated that it had no objection to her release on humanitarian grounds.
An M.Phil Student of Jamia Millia Islamia, Safoora Zargar, was arrested under the ‘Unlawful Activities Prevention Act’ (UAPA) for her active involvement in the Delhi Riots in February 2020 and the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). She has been denied bail for the third time on June 4 by Additional Sessions Court Judge Dharmender Rana after a four hour long hearing at Patiala Court in Delhi. She is also the Media Coordinator of the Jamia Coordination Committee (JCC). This is Zargar's third unsuccessful denied bail plea.
The spread of Islamophobia and anti-Islamic sentiments have taken a huge toll over the Muslims in India, particularly in the last few months. Ever since the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of Narendra Modi has come to power, we have been witnessing widespread sectarian divide and the government has also reflected bias against Muslims.
In October 2018 Safoora Zargar was married and now when she was expecting her first baby she was sent to solitary confinement at Tihar Jail under false charges as she was one of the strongest leading voices in anti-CAA protest.
AIMIM leader Akhtarul Iman raised voice for Jamia's student, Safoora, and said that Between jail and Bail only name matters
