Sheikh El-Zakzaky and Mallimah Zeenah have been given access to their medical team. They are still restricted to the hospital premises, but there are negotiations going on to resolve this situation. Everyone’s swift action this morning is deeply appreciated.
Ealier on, the Indian government was restraining Sheikh El-Zakazky, denying medical treatment; threatening return to Nigeria, the government appears to acting as a policeman in the Kaduna district of Nigeria. They appear to have collaborated with Nigerian security services.
The Islamic Movement in Nigeria and IHRC are calling on the international community and global civil society to demand the Indian government immediately remove its security personnel from the hospital, remove all restrictions on the Sheikh and Mallimah Zeenah, and place restrictions on what appears to be the unfettered operation of Nigerian security services in India.
Chair of IHRC, Massoud Shadjareh said:
“The Sheikh and his wife are in catastrophic health crises. It seems astounding that the Indian government has become involved in this matter in such a devastating way, and that the so-called ‘strong man’ of India wishes to act like the poodle of the ailing Buhari.”
Campaigners are urged to monitor the situation via the IHRC website.
