'HC bail to Malegaon blast accused exposes double standard'

Strongly condemning the poor handling of the 2008 Malegaon blast case, Muslim community leaders August 04 alleged that the Mumbai High Court verdict to grant bail to the blast   »

Malegaon: The Mumbai Muslims belonging to over a dozen NGOs August 04 expressed shock and anguish over the Mumbai HC verdict granting bail to the 2008 Malegaon blast accused and asked the government why bail could not be granted to the Muslim accused arrested in the 2006 Malegaon blast case on the same basis.


"If the 'Saffron Terrorists' can get the bail order from the court, why the Muslim youths of Malegaon who are in jail since last more than four years cannot be released on the same basis?", president of the Mumbai based Khair Ummat Trust, Haroon Mozawala asked the government.


Haroon Moozawala who presided over the meeting held at the Trust's Mumbai office yesterday was speaking to on phone from his Mumbai office.


"With the confessional statement of Aseemanand everything has become clear. It is surprising that the government is not willing to take any step for the release of the innocent Muslim youths even then. Why this injustice?", he asked.


The meeting also decided to hold a meeting August 07 in the morning to chalk out future course of action so that the matter is taken with the government in a proper manner. The organisers have also invited legal experts for their opinion.


Earlier on August 04, the Muslim community leaders here in Malegaon had also condemned the poor handling of the 2008 Malegaon blast case,  alleging that the Mumbai High Court verdict to grant bail to the blast accused has exposed the double standard of the investigating agencies.


"The court verdict has once again proved how leniently the investigating agencies are handling the 2008 Malegaon blast case in which Hindu terrorists are involved", Kul Jamaati Tanzeem leader Maulana Abdul Hameed Azhari said while speaking to


"On the other hand, the same agencies are very strict against the Muslim youths arrested in the 2006 blast case. This, despite the fact that Swami Aseemanand has already confessed about his involvement in the incident", he added.


Maulana Azhari was speaking a day after the Mumbai High Court granted bail August 03 to the two accused arrested in the 2008 Malegaon blast case.


"If it is the matter of the proof, what proof does the investigating agencies have against the Muslim youths? How can one rely on the charge-sheet filed by the investigating agencies which terms a person 600 kms away from Malegaon on the day of the incident as one of the planters?", he asked.


"Instead of correcting their mistakes, the investigating agencies are paving way for the release of the potential accused in the two blasts", he alleged.


He also criticized the government for the way it intends to fight the terrorism.


"Every now and then we hear that the prime minister and the home minister vow to fight the terrorism. Is this the way they want to fight the terrorism? Or by fighting the terrorism they mean to marginalize the Indian Muslims further on the basis of assumptions and fabricated stories?", he asked.


Meanwhile, the 24-hour hunger strike which began April 25, 2011 completed 100 days on August 03.


Despite Ramadan, the fasting protesters are sitting for dharna to demand release of the Muslim youths and a ban on the Hindutva terrorist organisations.


On the 100th day, they pledged once again that their protest would continue till their demands were met.
