Indian Muslims Condemn Bomb Blasts in Varanasi
AIMMM Condemns Bomb Blasts in Varanasi as Barbaric Manifestation of Fanaticism and Hatred and warns against exploitation by communal forces
New Delhi, 8 March,
Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan, General Secretary of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:
“The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) strongly condemns the twin bomb blasts in Varanasi on 7 March 2006 which have taken the lives of at least 20 innocent people and injured around a hundred. Like earlier similar incidents, these blasts too were designed to terrorize the common people and vitiate the communal harmony in the country.
The AIMMM unreservedly condemns this and all similar terrorist acts and calls upon the Indian authorities to make all possible efforts not only to apprehend the culprits and bring them to justice but also to expose their backers who motivated, trained and equipped them.
The AIMMM also looks with deep apprehension at the efforts by the communal organisations to usurp these tragic incidents and thereby help the terrorists in polarising the Indian society on communal lines and, as a result, stoke the fires of suspicion and hatred in our country. Such efforts by the communal forces must be effectively thwarted as they indirectly play in the hands of the terrorists who perpetrate these criminal attacks.
The AIMMM offers its deep sympathy to the next-of-kin of the victims and assures them that the whole nation shares their sense of loss.”
