'Difficult to defend charges after Aseemanand's confession'

Malegaon/Mumbai: The Congress-led governments, both at the centre  and in Maharashtra, might be taking pride for having done enough to bring the minorities to the mainstream. However, the fact is that the Muslims in Mahrashtra are feeling alienated.

 

This was petitioned before the newly appointed Chief of the National Commission for  Minorities, Wajahat Habibullah when he visited Mumbai this Thursday.

 

"The government claims, it has done this, this and that for the minorities...But looking at its attitude towards the Muslims, we are sorry to say that we are actually feeling alienated", a delegation of Muslim community leaders said to Wajahat Habibullah.

 

Wajahat Habibullah was in Mumbai March 03 and had invited the community leaders to discuss the issues minorities are facing in Maharashtra.

 

"Right from the Sri Krishna Commission report on Mumbai riots to extending justice to the Muslim youths wrongly arrested in the blast cases, the government just does not show any will to fulfill its constitutional responsibilities", senior counsel Yusuf Machala and other community leaders said to the Minorities Panel chief even as top police officers including Maharashtra DIG look on.

 

The delegation that also included advocates and leaders from Malegaon presented in front of the Minorities Panel chief the evidences that question the police version about the 2006 Malegaon blast along with the confessional statement of Swami Aseemanand.

 

Immediately after taking charge as the chief of the National Commission for Minorities, Wajahat Habibullah had reportedly said that on the basis of Swami Aseemanand it was clear that the Muslim youths were wrongly implicated in the case and they should be released.
