Mr. E. Aboobacker, the SDPI national president, in a statement, while expressing deep shock over this despicable and dastardly act, has condoled the casualties of the innocents in the blast and extended heart-felt sympathies to the families of the victims and those injured.

He termed it as an inhuman act and demanded harshest punishment for the perpetrators of this heinous act. Killing innocent persons is not justified and it is a barbaric act. This cold-blooded killing of innocent people, only appears to be aimed at stoking sectarian tensions in a city known for its cosmopolitan outlook, he asserted.

Mr. Aboobacker cautioned that before anything is established conclusively and hard facts and clues point out to some definite conclusions the investigative agencies, political outfits and the media should restrain themselves from floating conjectures and speculations just on the basis of suspicion. Thus, the blame game should be avoided as in the past this has played havoc with the lives and career of many innocent youths.

He called upon both the Union and the state government to demonstrate an unfaltering commitment and determination to take on this menace decisively so that innocent lives may be saved. He urged the Home Ministry to conduct a thorough investigation into the blasts, and ensure that the culprits as well as those that inspired them are exposed and brought to justice.

Mr. Aboobacker urged the Union and the state government to fight terrorism in all of its malevolent manifestations without casting aspirations towards any caste, creed and community as a whole. Each case should be dealt on its merits and see to it that the lives and career of the innocents are not jeopardized in the process. ([email protected])
