New Delhi: The CPI(M) today castigated the central government for "lack of firmness" in dealing with Hindutva extremists and demanded a coordinated probe into the attacks in Malegaon, Hyderabad and Ajmer allegedly carried out by these outfits.
"The terrorist attacks in Malegaon, Hyderabad and Ajmer must be seen as the handiwork of a network of Hindutva extremist groups. They are a mirror image of their Muslim counterparts. What is required therefore is a coordinated investigation into all these attacks", CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury said.
"It is inexplicable why cases involving the Hindutva terrorist attacks have not been handed over for investigation by the newly set up National Investigation Agency, barring the Goa blast case", he added.
In an editorial in the forthcoming issue of party organ 'People's Democracy', he said, the UPA government has shown "lack of clarity and firmness in dealing with Hindutva terror.
"Hopefully, the latest revelations regarding the Ajmer and Hyderabad blasts will end this pusillanimous approach", he wrote.
Observing that intelligence and security agencies have been "reluctant to recognise this reality", he said "They are fixated on terrorism emanating from Muslim extremism and its external links. Otherwise, the investigation into the horrific Samjhauta Express blast would not have reached a dead end. The target was the train to Pakistan filled with Muslims."
"Yet, stories were planted of extremist groups from Pakistan being responsible for this gruesome attack", he continued.
Noting that it was "no longer possible to deny that Hindutva terrorism is a reality", he alleged that the police and investigating agencies "did not make serious efforts to probe further and establish the culprits and their links with the Hindutva organisations" in several cases.
He said the Hindu extremist outfits had targeted Muslims at places of worship in all the three places in Ajmer, Malegaon and Hyderabad.
Maintaining that "preconceived notions" in the security agencies about 'Muslim terrorism' was "glaringly evident" in the Mecca Masjid blast and Ajmer probes, he said scores of Muslim youth were rounded up and many of them beaten and tortured.
"The latest revelation should bring about a correction in the approach of the police and security agencies", he said.
Elements from within Hindutva outfits have taken to the path of terrorist violence motivated by fanatical hatred, as outfits like Abhinav Bharat and Sanathan Sanstha, allegedly involved in these incidents, continued to "expound a militaristic Hindutva spewing hatred against Muslims".
