Mecca Masjid blast case: BJP demands apology from Congress

Mecca Masjid blast case: BJP demands apology from Congress

The acquittal in the case raises the spectre of a similar collapse in the trial in Samjhauta case, where the NIA itself admitted in its charge-sheet that it had no clue how the explosives were arranged for and how the highly sophisticated bombs were prepared. 10 people including Swami Aseemanand were named accused in the case. The other accused including Sandeep Dange, Ramchandra kalsangara and Amit Chouhan are on run while Sunil Joshi was murdered. Investigation is continuing against two others. The team recovered an unexploded bomb at Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti dargah in Ajmer, which showed that mobile phones and SIMs used in the Ajmer blast were similar to the ones used in the Mecca Masjid blast.

The incident had triggered violent protests and riots, prompting police action in which five more people were killed.

The Hyderabad MP also questioned NIA's motives while mentioning former special prosecutor Rohini Salian's charges of how she was asked to go soft on these cases.

Subramaniam Swamy, the BJP leader, has said that there is nothing like Hindu terror and it was a word coined by the UPA and the Congress party to lure Muslim voters to vote for the Congress. "The conspiracy against the nation has been exposed". Claiming that the government has gone soft on such terror cases, he said that this exposes the government's so called fight against terrorism.

"It is happening in each case since the government was formed four years ago.people are losing faith in the agencies", he told reporters. However, the court in Hyderabad acquitted him in Mecca Masjid blast although the SIM cards used here were also used in Ajmer shrine blast. Qs is what will be left of criminal justice system if such biased prosecutions continue (sic).

Patra raked up comments of several Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi's remarks reportedly quoted in a U.S. diplomatic cable in which he had said that radicalised Hindu groups posed a bigger danger to the country. During the trial, 226 witnesses were examined in the court and 411 documents were produced.

Swami Asseemanand, suspected to be an ideologue of rightwing Hindutva outfit Abhinav Bharat, was arrested from Hardwar by the CBI on November 19, 2010. The NIA had relied heavily on this statement. He retracted his confessional statement with the claim that it was extracted under duress.

While initial investigations pointed towards the role of Pakistan terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), later it was found that members affiliated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), were behind the blast.
