Mumbai/Malegaon: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan assured the Muslim MLAs and leaders who met him separately to lead a delegation to Delhi August 17. The delegation led by the Chief Minister will meet the Prime Minister and Union Home Minister with the demand to seek justice for the Muslim youths accused in the 2006 Malegaon bomb blasts.

 

Dr Azimuddin, Coordinator, Federation of Minorities NGOs of Maharashtra, led a delegation which met Chavan at the state guest house August 14.

 

“We are satisfied with the meeting with the CM. He has assured us of meeting the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and doing everything possible to ensure release of the arrested youths,” said Dr Azimuddin.

 

Earlier, Chief Minister Chavan had assured the same thing to two separate delegations - one comprising the Muslim MLAs of Maharashtra and the other of Muslim leaders led by newly elected MP Husain Dalwai. The two delegations met the Chief Minister at the state guest house yesterday.

 

The organisations are demanding release of nine men arrested for their alleged role in the 2006 Malegaon blast. Dr Azimuddin said the groups had urged the state not argue against the bail appeal of the accused.  

 

Following the meeting with the Chief Minister, the Muslim organisations have withdrawn their call to boycott Iftaar parties organised by the Congress.

 

"After Chief Minister's assurance, we have decided to withdraw the Iftaar boycott", Dr. Azimuddin said.

 

An Iftaar party had been organised at the Haj house by the Mumbai Regional Congress Committee on Saturday which the organisations had threatened to boycott.

 

The decision to boycott the Iftaar parties was taken in a meeting held in Mumbai August 07. It was  attended by over a dozen NGOs of Mumbai and Malegaon.

 

Meanwhile, the 24-hr long hunger strike, which began April 25, 2011 enters 110th day today with more than 60 years old women now participating in the protest to demand justice for the Muslim youths who are in jail since 2006/07.

Hundreds of people February 07, 2011 converged at Mushawerat chowk in Malegaon - one of the site that witnessed a series of blast on September 08, 2006, to listen to Former Minister Nehal Ahmed. Nehal Ahmed addressed the people from atop the Tipu Sultan tower because, according to him, the local police did not give him the permission to hold the rally to press the government to release the Muslim youths arrested in the case.
