Terror act in Mumbai is an attack against our Nation

AIUDF president, Maulana Badruddin Ajmal

Mumbai, 14 July: "It is an act of terror, it is highly deplorable and a crime against humanity. No sane society would tolerate such repeated havoc on human life and property let alone any religion.” These were the reactions of Maulana Badruddin Ajmal, Lok Sabha MP and president of All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), following serial bomb blasts in Indian’s financial capital Mumbai last evening. The triple blasts in south and central parts of the city have succumbed 22 innocent lives and wounded around 150 common people on Wednesday between 6:45 to 7 pm was the third successive serial blast from 1993 and latest major terror strike against the city after 26/11 of 2008.

‘Terrorism is a worldwide contagious ailment; it directly or indirectly affects all nations and every individual. The world has to face it with required sanity, unity and resolute strategy. The terror attacks in New Your, London and Mumbai must be taken equally by the world community. And similarly bomb blasts in Varanasi, Makkah Masjid, Malegaon and Mumbai must be viewed by the investigating and law enforcement agencies of India as just attacks against our nation.’ “There must be zero tolerance for any kind of terrorism from any group or nation and the perpetrators must be brought to justice sooner than later” said Maulana Badruddin Ajmal.

Expressing their anguish over the dastardly serial blasts in Mumbai, Tarun Rathi AIUDF Mumbai Pradesh president and M. Burhanuddin Qasmi, AIUDF Maharashtra spokesperson, explicitly condemned the deplorable terror act and offered condolence to the families of those lost their lives or are injured laying in the hospital. They also appealed to the youths of Mumbai especially AIUDF youths to rush to the hospitals and donate blood where needed.

Maulana Ajmal who is also the president of Assam State Jamiat Ulama-e Hind said that the obvious target of such attacks is to instigate chaos in the country, create mistrust among friendly neighbours and ultimately weaken our nation. It is the duty of government of India to catch-hold of the real culprits, expose them and severely punish them. He strongly cautioned the Mumbai Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) and the national media not to hurry towards any conclusion while identifying the criminals. Sometimes mere speculation and unhealthy discussions from media makes thing tougher for the government and agencies to do their work properly, he said.

AIUDF president Maulana Ajmal also appealed to the Mumbaikers and the nation to maintain peace and harmony. He said, "It is our country and we all have a responsibility to defeat this anti national menace unitedly". He advised people to ‘remain watchful, maintain peace and calm in all circumstances’. Shab-e Barat (the night of luck) is on this Sunday (17 July), Muslim should pray for the nation’s unity and safety, Maulana Ajmal said.
