'Difficult to defend charges after Aseemanand's confession'

New Delhi: A shocked and devastated Malegaon after the Special MCOCA Court rejected the bail application of the 2006 Malegaon blast accused March 15, has decided to intensify protest and efforts to seek justice. It has also appealed to NGOs and activists across the country to support their campaign.


"After today's court verdict, we have been forced to intensify the protests against the government for the injustice it is doing to the innocent Muslim youths who are in jail since 2006", Kul Jamaati Tanzeem leader Maulana Ab Hameed Azhari said while speaking to


Expressing shock over the verdict, he said, "The verdict is disappointing and unexpected. Swami Aseemanand's confession had vindicated our stand that these youths were wrongly framed in the case. We expected that the court would release them on bail", he said.


He, however, did not criticizse the court but blamed the state government and the investigating agencies for the verdict.


"The investigation agencies and the government have done blunders in the past and they are doing the same now. It is only to hide their misdeeds and wrongdoings done since 2006 that they are not willing to release these youths", he said.


"At the behest of the state government, the investigating agencies did not bring the facts in front of the court. This is why the magistrate delivered such a verdict. Otherwise the case was clearly open in our favor", he added.


Kul Jamaati Tanzeem is comprised of the leaders from all sects and Muslim groups in Malegaon and it enjoys support from a vast majority of people in the town. Established immediately after the 2006 Malegaon blast, the organisation is fighting for the release of the Muslim youths ever since.


After today's verdict, the organisintion is contemplating on various options to intensify the protest and effort to seek justice. Since most of the members of the organisation are in Mumbai today, it is calling a meeting tomorrow to discuss future course of action.


Meanwhile, it has also appealed to the NGOs, activists, and peace-loving, justice loving and secular minded people from across the country to join and support their cause. They have in fact already received calls from few NGOs, who have extended support.


"We have received calls from All India Secular Forum (Mumbai), Qaumi Majlise Shura (Mumbai), Muslim Numainda Coucil (Aurangabad) and other NGOs and groups who are willing to join us", Shakeel Faizee, one of the members of the Kula Jamaati Tanzeem informed


The nine Muslim accused arrested in the 2006 Malegaon blast case had moved to the Special MCOCA Court January 17 seeking bail on the basis of the confessional statement of Swami Aseemanand, who is allegedly associated with Hindu terrorist groups and has confessed about his role in the 2006 Malegaon and other blasts.


The Special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court, however, rejected their bail application today. The accused have already decided to move to to High Court for an appeal.
