Malegaon: On the first anniversary of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, he walked from Bhiwandi to Mumbai. On the second, from Bhikku Chowk in Malegaon to Mumbai he went on motorcycle. Now he is on his way to New Delhi from Bhiwandi on motorcycle, all to ensure that peace and justice extended to everyone in India.

Fakhare-Alam Khan Azmi is a journalist associated with an Urdu weekly in Bhiwandi – a town some 50 kms to Mumbai dominated by Muslims and famous for textile industry. On his way to New Delhi in the midst of Bhiwandi se Dilli tak Ekta Yatra- the march on motorcycle Fakhare-Alam has initiated with two of his friends, he was in Malegaon on March 12.

Ask him about the motive behind his yatra and he says: “Even after the investigations revealed that the hardline Hindu terrorists are involved in clear anti national activities, the government is not doing enough against them. Hence I decided to initiate this motorcycle yatra from Bhiwandi to New Delhi. In the national capital, we will meet the President of India and request her to intervene in the matter.”

“We will urge the president to intervene because these are the very people who were till recently dividing the country on communal lines by staging riots and now they are trying to achieve the same target by masterminding bomb blasts”, he said while speaking to

“The successive governments so far have been lenient towards them. We were also ignorant about their destructive activities in these many years. The result is that they have grown so strong that they are now planning for overthrowing the secular Indian government”, he added.

“Worse”, he said, “While these forces were enjoying leniency, innocent Muslims were paying for the wrongdoings of these very people and for the crimes they were not responsible for.”

“Now, even after most of the things have become clear, specially after Swami Aseemanand’s confession, there seems to be no breather for the innocent Muslims, who are languishing in jail since many years”, he said while referring to the Muslim youths from Malegaon in prison since 2006.

“The time has now come for us to stand against them and urge the government to take urgent and swift action against these people”, he said.

Fakhare-Alam has already sought appointment from the president through the government officials in Bhiwandi and he is expected to reach the national capital on March 18. Before meeting the president, he and his friends will sit for a day-long dharna at Janar Mantar.

This is not the first time that Fakhare Alam has set for such a yatra. On November 26, 2009 – the first anniversary of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, he had walked with few of his friends from Bhiwandi to Mumbai to join the mourners at Gateway of India.

On the second anniversary of the tragic incident, he had travelled from Bhikku Chowk in Malegaon to Gateway of India in Mumbai on motorcycle. Bhikku Chowk in Malegaon is the place that the investigating agencies believe was targeted by the Hindu terrorists on September 29, 2008. Fakhare Alam chose Bhikku Chowk for his yatra because, as he says, it was the blast at this place that helped to expose the hitherto hidden face of Hindu terrorism in India.
