'Difficult to defend charges after Aseemanand's confession'

Mumbai: The Muslim protesters from various parts of Maharashtra state gathered at Azad Maidan in Mumbai March 05 gave a time till April 06 to the government for the release of the Muslim youths arrested in the 2006 Malegaon blast case.

“We are seeking justice since last more than four years. It is too much now. We are giving a month’s time to the government to drop all charges against these Muslim youths and for their release", Kul Jamaati Tanzeem Leader Maulana Ab Hameed Azhari, who was leading the protest, demanded in his concluding speech.


"Also, these youths should be compensated and the government should tender apology to them and their families for the grave injustice it has done", he demanded.


"After April 06, we will intensify our protest and the government will only be responsible for the consequences”, he added.


“Today’s protest is symbolic and is organised to register our concern over the government’s lackluster attitude towards the innocent Muslim youths who were erroneously implicated in the 2006 Malegaon blast case”, he said even as the protesters, who came in a large number from Mumbai, Malegaon, Bhiwandi, Auranagabd, Jalgaon, Prabhani, Latur, Beed and other places in Maharashtra, raised their hands in endorsement.


Various options including rasta –roko, jail-bharo andolan, protest at Maharashtra Assembly House during the budget session and boycotting the Muslim leaders in Congress and Nationalist Party (NCP) were discussed during the rally as part of their plan to intensify protest if the government does not concede to their demands.

The other demands that were raised during the rally include action against the erring officials and fast track court for Aurangabad arms haul case.

It was also decided that a delegation of Qaumi Majlis-e-Shura (Mumbai), Kul Jamaat Tanzeem (Malegaon) and Muslim Numainda Council (Aurangabad) will travel to the four states where assembly elections are scheduled to be held in the next few months to expose the government’s apathy towards the Muslims.


Earlier, the organisers declined to meet the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and state home minister stating that they had already met them enough number of times and "it is now time for them to take action on their demands".

The protest was called ahead of the crucial hearing March 07 in the Special MACOCA Court on the bail application of the Muslim youths arrested in the 2006 Malegaon blast case. The Muslim youths in jail since 2006 approached the court January 17 this year for bail following Swami Aseemanand’s confessional statement.

Ever since their arrest in the case, Muslim leaders are claiming that these youths are wrongly implicated in the case. They intensified their demand after Swami Aseemanand in his confessional statement said that the 2006 blast in Malegaon, like Samjhauta Express, Mecca Masjid, Ajmer and the 2008 Malegaon blasts, was also carried by the Hindutva terrorists.
