'Difficult to defend charges after Aseemanand's confession'

Mumbai/Malegaon: Accepting the call given by more than 40 NGOs, thousands of people thronged the Azad Maidan in Mumbai on January 20 demanding release of the Muslim youths arrested in the blast cases and a ban on RSS and its affiliate organisations.


The protest was organised following the confession of Swami Aseemanand - a Hindu extremist, who in his confessional statement before a magistrate, said Hindu organisations were involved in various bomb blasts including Malegaon 2006 & 2008, Samjhuata Express, Mecca Masjid and Ajmer blasts.


In the protest that the organisers termed as 'Agitation Against Sanghi Terrorism', the speakers alleged that by carrying out a propaganda through the media, investigators had built a perception of Muslims being responsible for terrorism.

“If there is a blast in a masjid and Muslims are killed, even a common man will tell you that it cannot be the job of a Muslim person. Investigating agencies have deliberately twisted investigations and trapped Muslim youths. Strict inquiry and action is needed against the RSS and erring investigators. A blast is a blot on the nation,” The Hindu quoted Maulana Adbul Hameed Azhari of Malegaon as saying.

In light of Swami Aseemanand's confession of his involvement in the Malegaon 2006 blast, they demanded bail for the nine accused arrested in the case.


The protestors demanded a ban on “fascist organisations” such as the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Abhinav Bharat.


“These organisations are the root cause of hatred and enmity between people in the nation,” the organizers said in a press statement made during the rally.


The organisers said if their demands were not met before the budget session, they would be forced to intensify their protest and gherao the state assemblies and the parliament.


Thursday's rally was also addressed by Ab Kaleem, who specially came from Hyderabad to demand release of the Muslim youths and protest against terrorism. Ab Kaleem was detained in connection with Mecca Masjid blast. He was released on bail last week after Swami Aseemanand mentioned in his confessional statement that it was after meeting Ab Kaleem that he decided to do a 'pryashchit' for his 'wrongdoings'.
