The Indian Union Muslim League has offered supportive aid to the family of Hathras victim and demanded an investigation probe in the gang rape and murder of the 19-year-old Dalit girl. The party delegation visited the family on October 11, 2020, and offered assistance to the family.
National President of Muslim Students' Federation (MSF), Student wing of IUML, on behalf of the organization and the party extended strong solidarity with the family of Hathras Victim. He said, "We are ready to extend any kind of assistance and support to the family of the victim in order to ensure justice in the case"
He further accused ruling regime Bhartiya Janata Party of being partial to the family and victim because they belong to a particular caste. He said, "BJP is trying to give a caste angle to the issue. The family is under the threat of social boycott. There is only a negligible number of Dalit families in the village Bhulgarhi, where the Dalit girl was raped and murdered and so these families and under the large fear."
Although the case has been sent to probe by Central Bureau of Investigation, we demand an investigation under the supervision of the Supreme Court, which can only ensure fair investigation and justice.
