United States in the world and BJP in India responsible for Terrorism: Sharad Pawar

Malegaon: Unlike thousands of other towns in the Indian subcontinent that might have been glittered in dazzling lights as the sun set today pronouncing the beginning of Shab-e-Baraat, regarded as a golden night by millions of Muslims, black flags rule almost every street and every house in Malegaon. Though the crowd exceeding lakhs in number thronged the Qabristan - the Muslim burial ground to offer special night prayers people are sporting black strips on their shoulders as a mark of protest and to express their anger against the government.

 

"Since last three years we are pleading to the government to look into our grievances. Today the situation has reached to such an extent where those belonging to the ruling parties are holding demonstrations against their own governments. But the government is adamant against us", Shafeeque Ansari said to ummid.com while coming out of the Qabristan after offering the prayers.

 

Shafeeque's son Sajid had taken admission in a Chinese medial college but died in the 2006 blast along with his cousin Shahbaaz.

 

Three years ago the same day on September 8, 2006 a series of blasts had occurred near the Hamidiya Mosque located inside the Qabristan killing more than thirty people and injuring over three hundred, many of them being the children who were offering the Friday prayers. The terror wounds might have been healed by now but the tragedy doubled itself when the investigating agencies blamed the Muslims for the Muslim killings and arrested Muslim youths on the charges of executing the blasts instead of arresting, according to the general perception in the town, the real culprits behind the incident.

 

Accepting the call given by the Kul Jamaati Tanzeem on the third anniversary of the 2006 blast today, Muslims in Malgeoan are protesting to press their demands for speedy completion of the CBI investigations, transfer of the cases in a fast track court, equal compensation to the blast victims, release of the innocent youths lingering in jail and removal of KP Raghuvanshi from the post of the ATS chief.

 

Dharna against Govt. apathies

Earlier in the day, Kul Jamaati Tanzeem leaders sat for a dharna at Mushawerat chowk, one of the blast sites, barely few hundred meters from the Qabristan. The dharna that was joined by Awami Bharat Andolan leaders Feroz Methiborewala and Kishore Jagtap among others began at 02:00 in the afternoon and ended peacefully at 05:00 in the evening with the leaders pledging to fight till justice is done and the real culprits of the blast are brought to book.

 

"What a pity! When LK Advani objected over the detention of Hindu terrorists, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh immediately sent the National Security Advisor to pacify him. Here whole Malegaon is crying since last three years for justice but no one in the government is ready to care for our grievances", Kul Jamaati Tanzeem leader Maulana Ab. Hameed Azhari, who was leading the demonstration said while reiterating the apt repeated demands.

 

Blaming the State Government and ATS chief KP Raghuvanshi for their grievances Kul Jamaati Tanzeem leaders warned the way things are being handled after Hemant Karkare's death in Mumbai terror attack would be dangerous for the country in the longer run.

 

"Till his death on November 26, Hemant Karkare was exposing the dangerous terror network that was hidden till then", said Sufi Ghulam Rasool and asked, "Where have those big fishes gone all of a sudden that Hemant Karkare wanted to catch? Where have those gone who, as claimed by Hemant Karkare, were trained by Col. Prohit and his gang? Why Narendra Modi was so anxious to offer a huge cash to Karakare's wife? Why the ATS which is very quick in nabbing the Muslim youths is not showing the same quickness in nabbing those who were in the list of slain ATS chief Hemant Karkare?"

 

Stating that there is no such thing as International Terrorism but it is a Global Industry of Terror that is pushing us into the third world war Awami Bharat Andolan leader Feroz Methiborewala who came with Kishore Jagtap from Mumbai to join today's dharna in his speech said, "We are not here to fight for a Muslim cause. We are fighting the in the National interest and we have come here to save the whole Bharat."
