RR Patil or RSS Patil, asks Mumbai based Urdu daily

Saturday February 12, 2011 03:57:10 PM, Staff Reporter

Malegaon: In a no-holds-barred attack on Maharashtra Home Minister and senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader RR Patil, a Mumbai based Urdu daily in its recently published issue raised questions over his integrity as minister and blamed him for working on RSS directives.

“From communal riots at Meeraj, Pusad and Dhule to bomb blasts in Malegaon, Mumbai and other places, the home ministry under RR Patil always blamed the Muslims and indicted them in cooked-up cases. But the same home ministry remains mute spectator when people ransack hospitals, resort to violence, openly damage public properties, and what has now become clear, indulge in terror activities”, Urdu Time, a Mumbai based daily wrote in its special column February 07.

“The home minister, who had ordered police to resort to firing in reply to stones could not even order lathi-charge against them”, Farooque Ansari, Deputy Editor of Urdu Times wrote in his daily column on the editorial page.

The newspaper’s tirade against RR Patil came in the wake of state government’s decision to appoint former ATS Chief KP Raghuwanshi as Thane Police Commissioner. Raghuwanshi during his tenure as Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief was blamed for wrongly framing Muslim youths in terror cases.

“By appointing Raghuwanshi as Thane Police Commissioner, RR Patil has only added salt to the injuries of the Muslim community”, he added.

“The Muslim community members are seeking action against Raghuwanshi ever since Swami Aseemanand’s confessional statement appeared in the media. Instead of facing action, he is being rewarded”, he wrote.

“During his entire tenure as Home Minister, there is no example to prove if he is interested in doing justice to the Muslims”, Farooque Ansari wrote in his daily column.

“Looking at the way he is functioning, one fails to understand if he is RR Patil or RSS Patil”, he wrote further.

In yet another article in the same issue, Urdu Times targeted the entire Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and blamed it for working against minorities.

“By appointing KP Raghuwansgi as Thane Police Commissioner, NCP has made it very clear that it is not only against minorities but it does not want to keep this thing a secret’, Ab Rahman Siddiqui wrote in Urdu Times February 07.

“NCP is at the helm of affairs in the state home ministry ever since the Cong-NCP alliance government came in the power. But the party which won the elections on Muslim votes never cared about the promises it had made to the community”, he wrote.
