PM urged to ban VHP, Bajrang Dal, sack Modi as Gujarat CM

Vajpayee tells delegation no harm will come to returning Hajis threatened by Sangh Parivar

A multi-religious delegation of senior religious, political, and human rights leaders met with Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee last night, 2nd March 2002, and urged him to take urgent steps that no harm befell Haj pilgrims who are now returning to India from Mecca and will be traveling to their homes by train from various ports and airports in the country. VHP-Bajrang Dal leaders in Uttar Pradesh had announced after the Sabarmati Train burning that they would put their armed Sangh parivar cadres on railway station, and threatened to attack the Haj pilgrims in relation for the death of karsevaks in the Godhra incident. 

The Prime Minister assured the delegation that all steps would be taken to ensure the safety of the Haj Pilgrims on their way back home.

The delegation which called on the Prime Minister consisted of Jamiat Ulema Hind president Maulana Asad Madni, a former member of Parliament, former Union law minister H R Bhardwaj, All India Christian Council and All India Catholic Union national vice president Dr. John Dayal, former National Minorities Commission chairman Prof Tahir Mahmood, Communist Party of India secretary Shameem Faizi, veteran activist and editor D R Goyal, and Jamiat general secretary Mahmood Madni. Maulana Asad Madni led the delegation.

The delegation, which gave to the Prime Minister copies of inflammatory posters brought out by the VHP-Bajrang Dal, called for an immediate ban on the two organisations, which had let lose a reign of terror in Gujarat. The state administration seemed to have utterly collapsed and the police were indeed siding with aggressive mobs that targeted Muslim localities, the Prime Minister was told. The violence was spreading to the villages in Gujarat and to othe states, which would have very serious consequences, they said. The delegation urged the Prime Minister to dismiss the Narendra Modi government, and if need be, put the state under Presidents rule. Armed forces should also restore peace in the rural areas.

The delegation noted that while the state government had announced compensation of Rs 2 lakh for the victims of the Train burning, no compensation was announced for the victims of the communal violence sweeping Gujarat. “Thee should be no discrimination,” the delegation said. The Prime Minister agreed that compensation should be paid to all victims.

The delegation also called for permission for religious and voluntary bodies to take relief material for people affected in the violence. Thee were also need for people of goodwill to be allowed to tour Gujarat to help restore confidence among the minorities, the delegations said.
