A shocked Malegaon decides to intensify protest, appeals NGOs to join hands

Malegaon: After waiting for more than four years and shocked by the court rejection of bail to the local youths arrested in the 2006 Malegaon blast case, Kul Jamaati Tanzeem in Malegaon has finally decided to intensify its campaign for justice it had started shortly after their arrests in 2006.


In an all party meeting called yesterday, few days after the court rejected the bail application March 15, the Kula Jamaati Tanzeem has decided to start a Jail Bharo Tehreek to press their demands.


"In order to apprise the government of our anger over the injustice it is doing to these Muslim youths and their families, we have decided to start a Jail Bharo Tehreek from April first week ", the Kul Jamaati Tanzeem leaders said after the meeting.


"That the investigating agencies work at the behest of the government is no secret. The way they opposed the bail application is a clear indication that the government is in no mood to correct its mistakes. Hence we are left with no option but to intensify our fight for justice",

they added.


The leaders have also appealed to the people who are willing to join the Jail Bharo Tehreek to register their names at six different offices in Malegaon.


Kul Jamaati Tanzeem is comprised of the leaders from all sects and Muslim groups in Malegaon and 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.


Earlier on March 05, the Kul Jamaati Tanzeem leaders after the dharna organised at Mumbai's Azad Maidan had given the government a time till April 06 to correct its mistakes and release the accused arrested in the 2006 Malegaon blast case.


Meanwhile, Maharashtra State Minority Commission has decided to raise the demand for the release of the Muslim youths at the meeting called by the National Minority Commission March 18.


"We would be demanding the release of these Muslim youths in the meeting called by the National Minority Commission in New Delhi March 18", Mohd Naseem Siddiqui, Chairman of the Maharashtra State Minority Commission said.


"The National Commission has invited the heads of all the state minority commissions with a single agenda. Our agenda at this meeting will be the demand for immediate release of these Muslim youths in jail since 2006", he added.


Union Home Minister P Chidamabaram and Minister for Minority Affairs Salaman Khurshid will also be present in this meeting.


"We don't have objection on investigations. Investigations can go on for years. After Swami Aseemanand's confession there is no need to keep these youths behind the bar", he said.


"Hence the central government should direct the CBI and the Maharashtra government to ATS so that these youths are released", he said.


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 March 15. The accused have already decided to move the High Court for an appeal.


Meanwhile, the CBI which has been granted permission re-investigation in the case after Aseemanad's confession has so far not succeeded in getting any breakthrough. However, according to the sources, its investigation is going on and one of its team has left for Rajasthan to interrogate Swami Aseemanand.
