New Delhi : Students Islamic Organisation of India, Delhi Zone staged a demonstration at Jantar Mantar here Saturday to express utmost grief over the unwarranted firing on the protesting people around Charminar in the aftermath of Bomb Blast at Makkah Masjid at Hyderabad on Friday where five people had already lost their lives and others got grievously injured.

Addressing the gathering, SIO Delhi president Adnan Yousuf demanded immediate arrest of the culprits and a CBI inquiry into the Bomb Blast incident. He also urged the government to ensure that such incidents do not occur in future. 

A memorandum was submitted to Union Home Minister demanding a thorough probe to unearth the truth about the incident, C.B.I. enquiry to identify the real culprits behind this heinous crime and enquire why the police took such a dastardly step of killing people by resorting to firing.

"Why before reaching out the real culprits our police and administrative machinery customarily names involvement of few Muslim outfits responsible for such acts, and in this case, why so soon the name of few Muslim outfits were floated. Such wanton naming fathoms hate against a particular community which might create communal disharmony," said a statement released here.

They also demanded the guilty police officials who ordered firing be punished and sacked from active service.

The gathering was also addressed by Jamaat-e-Islami Hind assistant secretary (in charge Media and Public Relations) Dr. N. K. Afandi and the convener of Instant Action Group SIO Delhi Zone Khalid Mubashshir. Both speakers echoed the similar feelings.

SIO Delhi also welcomed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Rajashekhar Reddy's announcement that CBI enquiry into the blast would be conducted, and urged the chief minister to fulfil the promises made in this regard.
