Mau Riots Preplanned and Engineered by Hindu Vahini In Collusion with Civil and Police Officials
Suspension of SHOs and Composite Manning of Affected Thanas Demanded
Also Demands Rise in Ex-gratia Payments and Compensation for Loss of Property on Substitution Basis
Suggests Imposition of Punitive Fine to Recover Compensation
New Delhi, 18 October, 2005: Shri Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:
"The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) has, on the basis of reports received, come to the conclusion that the Mau riots was pre-planned and engineered by the Rashtriya Hindu Vahini in collusion with the civil and police officials.
It, therefore, welcomes the transfer of senior officials from Mau by the State Government and the consequent improvement in the situation. However, it is surprised that the local leaders and many activists of the Rashtriya Hindu Vahini are still at large.
The AIMMM demands that the SHO’s of the affected thanas be suspended and those thanas be manned in a composite manner to command the confidence of all residents.
It also requests the State Government to raise the ex-gratia payment for loss of life and limb to that sanctioned by the Central Government for the victims of 1984 Anti-Sikh Disturbances, Delhi.
It also demands that State Government compensate the loss of property not in a token manner but on substitution basis and suggests to the State Government that punitive fine be imposed on the residents of the affected mahallas in a manner so as to recover the compensation paid to one group for loss of life, limb and property from the other."
