United States in the world and BJP in India responsible for Terrorism: Sharad Pawar

Malegaon: Thousands thronged the rally oganised against the Maharashtra Government and Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) yesterday late in the evening even as today’s Malegaon Bandh call given by Janata Dal (S) received mixed response.


The demonstrations that were also supported by Kul Jamaati Tanzeem and other local organizations were held to express the anger over, what they called as, the lackluster attitude of the State Government and Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) towards the accused arrested in the 2008 Malegaon blast case that led to the dismissal of stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) by the special court.


“After the court verdict, they say it was some mistakes in papers that the court dismissed the MCOCA charges against the accused. They had mistaken in Nanded. They had mistaken even in Poorna and Prabhani. Why did they not commit any mistake in the 2006 Malegaon blast case and other cases in which the accused are Muslim youths”, veteran socialist leader and former minister Nehal Ahmad said as the crowd numbering thousands raised slogans against the State Government and ATS.


Stating that he has been told Ashok Chavan had given the statements in support of the Hindu terrorists who were involved in bomb making in Nanded, Nehal Ahmad said, “Ashok Chavan is the Chief Minister in Maharashtra and Raghuvanshi in whose tenure as ATS Chief the accused in 2006 Nanded blast case were freed is reinstated to the post again. The respite to the 2008 Malegaon blast accused seems to be having its roots in this.”


Nehal Ah says...

“The police that remained mute spectators when the communal forces were showering flowers over the Hindu terrorists in Nashik refrain us from holding peaceful demonstrations.”

Stating that he did not wish to comment on the court order owing to the respect to the judicial system, he said, "The court decides on the details provided by the prosecution. It is the prosecution that has created the mess and it seems keeping an eye on the ensuing assembly elections, the government is lenient towards the criminals who were not only involved in killing the innocent people in Malegaon but also planned to overthrow the Indian government."


During the rally, the veteran socialist leader also questioned the attitude of the police department that was not ready to give the permission for the dharna and rally. “The town has always been anti Muslim League and is famous for its nationalist thinking. The town even sacrificed precious lives during the freedom struggle. Yet the police that remained mute spectators when the communal forces were showering flowers over the Hindu terrorists in Nashik refrain us from holding peaceful demonstrations", he said in front of the huge gathering on August 11 late in the evening that was held at the same place where the blast had occurred on September 29 in 2008.


Malegaon Bandh

Along with the late evening rally on August 11, Janata Dal (S) has also called a day long Malegaon Bandh today on August 12 to protest against the government attitude towards the 2008 blast accused. The Bandh received mixed response and though powerloom factories and markets in a particular area in the town remained closed, others were at work as usual. Schools and colleges too were busy with the routine academic activities.


Earlier in the morning, Nehal Ahmad led a Satygrah Morcha towards the City police station that was stopped by the police near the Ambedkar Chowk. Protestors led by Nehal Ahmad were later whisked away to City police station in police vehicles.


Meanwhile, Malegaon remained fully peaceful and no untoward incident reported from any part of the town during the two day agitation.
