goons disguised as "Gao Sewa Samiti" terrorise Muslims of Malegaon
19 November 2009
Malegaon: As Eid Al-Azha festival approaches, Hindutva
goons have stepped up their efforts to terror the Muslims of this
district. Disguised as “Gao Sewa Samiti” and led by Subhash Malu and his
associates, they are freely creating mischief in Malegaon.
During this festival which will fall this years towards the end of
November, Muslims will offer qurbani, that is slaughtering
permitted animals like bulls, buffalos, goats and sheep. People claiming
to belong to Gaoshala Samiti, who are led by Subhash Malu, have taken the
law in their hands to terrorise Muslims by spreading rumours and attacking
vehicles carrying such animals. These goons, in the name of protecting
cows, are looting animals being transported by merchants using force. They
are also looting money and valuables of Muslims with the connivance of the
local Police. This has endangered public peace and order.
President of Malegaon’s Qaumi Majlis-e-Shoora Maulana Abdul Kareem Milli
has presented a memorandum on 18 November to the Chief Minister of
Maharashtra drawing his attention to this criminal activity with police
connivance. Maulana Milli asked the CM to personally intervene in this
matter and save ordinary Muslims from the criminal activities of Hindutva
goons who are looting and robbing peaceful Muslims.
Maulana Milli said in his memorandum that this activity surfaces each year
at this time and every year some Muslims animal merchants are victimized
by these goons.
During one such attack on 16 November 2009, two animal merchants were
killed by these goons led by Subhash Malu and his associates. They
attacked the animal merchants, robbed their valuable articles and money
and looted the animals. The two merchants were shown as dying during a
motor accident. Maulana Milli has asked the CM to order the prosecution of
these goons especially Subhash Malu. He has demanded that this goon and
his associates should be externed from Malegaon in order to ensure the
town’s peace and communal harmony.
