Lucknow: Questioning the secular nature of the Indian judicial and political system, civil rights activists have demanded a White Paper on Indian Mujahideen (IM) and the terror cases in which right wing groups like Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh are allegedly involved.
Moreover, a demand has been made for creation of a special commission to look into all the terror cases in the last ten years and Abhinav Bharat, Sanatan, Hindu Yuva Vahini, Hindu Janjagran Samiti and Bajrang Dal be banned.
The demands were made at a seminar organized recently on Malegaon bomb blasts, judicial communalism and the truth of Indian Mujahideen.
The increasing communal tendency of judiciary on terrorist issues came up as a serious concern in the seminar while raising doubt on the very existence of IM.
Senior journalist, Subhash Gatade said that when judiciary accepts that two accused of Malegaon blasts, Kalsangda and Sahu both were aware of the conspiracy of Malegaon blasts then how and why bail was granted to them.
“Though in the same case, even after the confession of Swami Aseemanand, 9 innocent Muslim youths are still in jail. This is nothing but judicial communalism,” he added.
Magsaysay awardee Sandeep Pandey raised concern that though all the enquiries and the civil society calls Batla house encounter a fake one, the govt sees it as one of its achievements. It clearly indicates that how this government views terrorism with a communal approach.
While addressing the audience, national president of Welfare Party of India, Mujtaba Farooq said that the politics behind the terrorist blasts is connected to the politics of distrust against Muslims that has been built meticulously. “Even after ATS’s allegations on Col. Purohit of training one thousand people for carrying out blasts, why was it not enquired by intelligence?” he asked.
“Civil society needs to start a political campaign to destroy the conspiracy against building a propaganda of terrorism by associating IM’s name though it neither has any base nor any evidence,” said senior journalist, Ajit Sahi.
