Aurangabad, Maharashtra, Nov 23 (UNI) The All India caravan on 'peace and justice', organised by the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, in the wake of the ''unprecedented havoc created in the name of terrorism and communalism'', reached the city today.

The Caravan, that commenced its journey from Delhi earlier this month, reached here from Nanded after passing through various parts of the country.

Addressing a press conference here, after participating in a procession taken out in the city this afternoon, Nazar Mohammed Madu, the state unit president of the outfit, said that certain communal people were inciting a particular group that their religion was in danger.

''In fact, no one's religion is at risk and all are living peacefully in the country. The same message is being spread through this caravan,'' he said.

The slogan of the caravan is 'Injustice is Terror; Justice is Peace' and this itself indicates that injustice should not be done with any member of any community and if it happens so, people of other religions should oppose it.

On the issue of innocent people languishing in jails due to the slow legal process, Madu said the JIH has full faith in the judiciary of the country.

''JIH has no plans to contest the forthcoming Assembly and Lok Sabha elections in the State. Also, the caravan has nothing to do with elections,'' he added.

Earlier, the procession commenced from Paithan Gate around noon, led by State unit office-bearers of JIH. Around 3,000 people, including children and women, participated in the procession that culminated at Aurangpura.
