'HC bail to Malegaon blast accused exposes double standard'

Malegaon: Over a dozen NGOs of Mumbai and Malegaon August 07 decided to call on Maharashtra Chief Minister to seek justice for the Muslim youths detained in the 2006 Malegaon blast case and express their anguish over the poor handling of the 2008 Malegaon blast case by the investigating agencies.


"We will be meeting Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan probably on August 13 to express our concern over the negligence and injustice meted to the innocent Muslim youths who were framed in the 2006 Malegaon blast case", said Salim Alware, convener of the Federation of Minorities NGOs of Maharashtra.


Salim Alware was speaking to on phone after a meeting which was held at Khair Ummat Trust's Mumbai office following the Mumbai High Court's decision to grant bail to the two accused arrested in the 2008 Malegaon blast case. The meeting was attended by Maharashtra Minority Commission Vice Chairman Abraham Mathai and Mahesh Bhatt besides other prominent community leaders from Mumbai and Malegaon.


"The meeting also observed that it was because of the lackluster attitude of the investigating agencies towards the Hindutva terrorists and poor handling of the case that they were granted bail by the court", Alware added.


The meeting also decided to boycott the Iftaar parties which are normally organised by the political parties during Ramadan if the government does not show any action.


It is to be noted that questions are raised about the investigations of the 2006 Malegaon blast from the day one. While the Muslim community leaders are of the view that the blast were carried by the Hindutva terrorists, the investigating agencies rejecting their claim charged nine Muslim youths in the case.


Ironically, one of the arrested youths, whom the investigation charged as one of the planters of the bomb on September 08, 2006 in Malegaon, was at Phoolsawangi - a town 600 kms away from Malegaon at the time of the incident


The case took a surprising turnaround January this year when Swami Aseemanand, arrested in Samjhauta Express, Mecca Masjid and Ajmer blasts also confessed about the involvement of the Hindutva terrorists in the 2006 Malegaon blast case.


In a swift move following the confession of Aseemanand, the Andhra Pradesh government ordered to release the Muslim accused who were arrested in the Mecca Masjid case. The Maharashtra government, however, despite repeated pleas is yet to take any such decision. The accused had applied for the bail but because of the strong opposition from the investigating agencies, it was rejected by the court.


Against this backdrop, the Muslim community was up for a shock when it learnt that the Mumbai HC had granted bail to two of the accused who were arrested in the 2008 Malegaon blast case.
