Unconditional release of Abdul Nasser Maudany

      Banglore, India

When the Muslim spiritual leader Abdul Nasser Maudany was first arrested in 1998 and he spent nine and a half years in jail without trial. After nine and a half years, the judge told him that `you are innocent’! Those who loved democracy in India were shocked by this process. Maudany came out from Coimbatore jail and all the politicians in Kerala tried to gather his support. Neither the judge nor the supporters raised the issue that he deserved a proper compensation for rotting in jail for around a decade. Here is a situation where even the judge is admitting that the cases on Abdul Nasser Maudany were `fabricated’.


Instead of compensating Maudany for his unnecessary time in jail, he was again arrested with fabricated false charges. Journalist K.K. Shahina, who exposed this fabrication is also facing fabricated charges. Maudany today is in Bangalore jail without proper health care. His eye-sight is affected badly due to diabetes. 

Maudany stood for the unity of marginalized Muslims, dalits, adivasis and other marginalized sections. Perhaps this was the real reason which threatened many politicians.


Abdul Nasser Maudany is a symbol of thousands of fabricated false cases in India. The campaign for the release of Maudany is a campaign for retaining democracy in India. We request all democratic and secular people to involve in this campaign to release Maudany, whereby we raise our strong voice against one of the most significant violations of human rights in this country.

      A real whistle blower to Indian justice and police systems. Fake encounters, framed accusations, manipulated case diaries and detentions, brutal killings and what not. What a pathetic situation.

      It is high time to release Madani immediately without any delay as the allegation against him is a complete mockery and nonsense, impossible to happen in real world.

      The Supreme Court of India should consider his physical disabilities, ill-health and consider his bail petition with sympathy.

      I believe keeping a person in custody for a long period when trial is going on without considering his bail petition is injustice
