New Delhi: Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on Sunday alleged
that the training camps run by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)
and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were promoting Hindu terrorism.
He also alleged that the RSS and the BJP were behind the Samjhauta
Express, Meccca Masjid and Malegaon blasts.
“Training camps of both the BJP and the RSS are promoting Hindu
terrorism. Whether it is Samjhauta blast or Mecca Masjid blast or
Malegaon blast, they plant bombs and blame it on the minorities,” he
said on the last day of Congress Chintan Shivir in Jaipur.
Reacting quickly to the allegations made by the Home Minister, BJP
spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said: “Home Minister’s statement is
irresponsible and unfortunate. We condemn it.” He was joined by BJP
Vice President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi who said, “It is sad that the Home
Minister is trying to disturb the peace of the country. The Congress
should apologise, Sonia Gandhi should also apologise, otherwise they
will have to face the consequences.”
Defending himself, Shinde said that he didn’t say anything new and
only spoke about saffron terrorism which has already been talked about
many a times in newspapers. “It is saffron terrorism that I have
talked about. It is the same thing and nothing new. It has come in the
media several times,” the Home Minister said.
Sources said that Shinde was warned by the Congress leadership to make
the clarification. Earlier in the day, Congress president Sonia Gandhi
in her address at the Chintan Shiviar had asked party leaders to gear
up for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and not indulge in nepotism so
that they could win back people’s faith.
Congress leader and Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv
Shukla also clarified on Shinde’s statement saying he referred to
right-wing terrorism and not Hindu terrorism. “Terrorism has no
religion. The extremists and religious fanatics create terror. The
Home minister did not refer to Hindu terrorism instead he meant
right-wing terrorism,” he said.
Right wing activists are alleged to have plotted the Samjhauta Express
bomb blast. Six people, including Swami Aseemanand and Sadhvi Pragya
Thakur, have been chargesheeted by the National Investigation Agency.
Two bombs went off on the Samjhauta Express near Panipat on February
18, 2007 while it was on way to Lahore, killing 68 people.
Sadhvi Pragya is also one of the prime accused in the Malegaon blasts
case of September 29, 2008, in which six persons were killed and 100
others were injured. On January 19, 2009, Maharashtra Police had filed
a chargesheet in the Malegaon blasts case. According to the
chargesheet, Lt Col Prasad Purohit was the main conspirator, who
provided the explosives and Sadhvi Pragya arranged for the persons,
who planted the explosives.
In December, 2012, a man belonging to a right wing group was arrested
by the NIA in connection with the May 18, 2007 Mecca Masjid blast that
left 13 people dead in Hyderabad. Tej Ram was apprehended by NIA
sleuths from Ravidas Marg area of Depalpur, 15 km from Indore.

 

 

 

 

Four Suspects Detained in #Delhi Gang-rape Case #Vaw


New Delhi, Dec 17 (IANS): Four suspects have been detained by Delhi Police for the gang-rape of a girl in a moving bus, police said Monday. The condition of the girl is critical.

“We have detained four people and have impounded two buses,” said a police official.

The incident took place Sunday night, when the victim, a para-medical student and her boyfriend, boarded the bus from Munirka to go to Dwarka, after watching a movie.

Police said that around five to seven bus crew started misbehaving with the girl a few minutes after she boarded the bus, which had no other passengers.

The victim’s boyfriend tried to prevent the men from molesting her, but the men beat him up and sexually assaulted the girl.

The accused then threw the girl and her boyfriend out of the bus near Mahipalpur in south Delhi’s Vasant Vihar area.

Both victims were rushed to Safdarjung Hospital by a PCR van. While the girl battles for life, her boyfriend was discharged and police have recorded his statement and registered a case.

The boy’s uncle said, “Five to seven persons attacked the couple.”

“When my nephew tried to save the girl, he was beaten with iron rods… the girl was then gang-raped,” he said.

Meanwhile, the chairperson of the National Commission for Women, Mamta Sharma, said she would talk to Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on the issue.

“We will talk to the chief minister, take cognizance of the matter and inquire into it, as also keep tabs on the police investigations,” Sharma said.

“Such incidents are on the rise in the capital and this is due to the ignorance of the government as well the police force. If an incident like this can take place in the thickly populated Munirka area, it just shows that the police is not alert,” she said.

Sharma said the girl’s “male friend may have been involved with the accused.”

Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that “neither the home ministry nor Delhi Police are able to check such incidents” which have been on the rise.

“Delhi’s law and order is being handled very irresponsibly by the Delhi government,” he said.
