HYDERABAD: Several Muslim organisations and various political parties expressed dismay over the acquittal of five persons who were accused in the Macca Masjid blast case here.
Majlis Bachao Tahreek (MBT) describ-ed it as a major blow to the fight against terrorism. MBT spokesperson Amjadullah Khan said that the acquittal in Macca Masjid blast case clearly proves the lenient attitude of the BJP government at the Centre and the TRS government in Telangana in pursuing the cases of ‘Saffron Terrorism.’
He said that the court acquitted the accused as it could not find any ‘direct evidence’ against them. Mr Khan alleged that the NIA had diluted its investigations at the instance of the BJP government.
“After these acquittals, who should we hold responsible for the blasts that killed nine people and injured 58 others persons? Victims of Macca Masjid blast have been denied justice. The accused persons have been acquitted and the culprits are moving freely. It is highly shameful that the perpetrators of a terror act remains non-punished even after 11 years,” Mr Khan said.
