‘Police should not pick up innocents as suspects’
Mumbai: National Commission for Minorities has said police should not pick up innocent people from the minority community as suspects.
"The police should not pick up innocent people from the minority community as suspects," Minority Commission vice-chairperson H T Sangliana told reporters here.
He said he met state Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan recently and expressed this to him.
"As they (state government) have taken the advice seriously, it will help in minimising such incidents," he said.
Meanwhile, stressing the need for improvement of madarsas, Sangliana said the standard of `Madarsas` was "poor" in the state.
"There is a need to improve the Madarsas in the state," he said, lamenting that the government was finding it difficult to recruit trained teachers for these schools for minority community.
He also expressed concern over the dwindling population of Parsis in the state.
Dr Sangliana was here to take stock of implementation of the Prime Minister`s 15-point programme in the state for uplift of minorities.
