Strongly condemning the poor handling of the 2008
Malegaon blast case, Muslim community leaders August 04 alleged
that the Mumbai High Court verdict to grant bail to the blast
accused has exposed the double standard of the investigating
"The court verdict has once again
proved how leniently the investigating agencies are handling the
2008 Malegaon blast case in which Hindu terrorists are involved",
Kul Jamaati Tanzeem leader Maulana Abdul Hameed Azhari said while
speaking to ummid.com.
"On the other hand, the same
agencies are very strict against the Muslim youths arrested in the
2006 blast case. This, despite the fact that Swami Aseemanand has
already confessed about his involvement in the incident", he
Maulana Azhari was speaking a day
after the Mumbai High Court granted bail August 03 to the two
accused arrested in the 2008 Malegaon blast case.
"If it is the matter of the proof,
what proof does the investigating agencies have against the Muslim
youths? How can one rely on the charge-sheet filed by the
investigating agencies which terms a person
600 kms away from Malegaon on the day of the incident as one of
the planters?", he asked.
"Instead of correcting their
mistakes, the investigating agencies are paving way for the
release of the potential accused in the two blasts", he alleged.
He also criticized the government
for the way it intends to fight the terrorism.
"Every now and then we hear that the
prime minister and the home minister vow to fight the terrorism.

on the basis of assumptions and fabricated stories?", he asked.
