Why not probe terror attacks on Muslims, asks Asaduddin OwaisiAll India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi today alleged that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) is not pursuing those bomb blast cases diligently where Muslims were the victims and the accused are non-Muslims.
All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi today alleged that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) is not pursuing those bomb blast cases diligently where Muslims were the victims and the accused are non-Muslims.
In a series of tweets today, Owaisi raked up incidents like Mecca Masjid and Malegaon blasts and wondered why the NIA was not convicting the accused persons in these cases.
"All accused in the 2013 Dilsukhnagar blast got conviction. But will NIA (National Investigation Agency) give conviction in the Mecca Masjid, Ajmer Dargah, Malegaon blasts cases?" the Lok Sabha MP asked in tweets.
"Why can't our premier investigation agencies show same urgency to convict all alleged terrorist cases of demolition of the Babri Masjid which is pending since 1992," he asked.
"Dilsukhnagar bomb blast accused can be convicted in three years but why is it taking long to convict Mecca Masjid, Ajmer, Malegaon? Can NIA throw some light?"
Owaisi's remarks came a day after a NIA court on Monday sentenced to death five convicts, including the banned Indian Mujahideen's co-founder Yaseen Bhatkal and a Pakistani, for the 2013 Hyderabad bomb blasts.
The twin blasts in Dilsukhnagar area on February 21, 2013 killed 18 persons, including an unborn child, and injured 131 others.
"Do not be surprised the way NIA is pursuing those bomb blast cases where accused are non-Muslims as they will be exonerated because of 'Ache Din'," the AIMIM leader said.
