With Muslims being harassed in various parts of the country on the pretext of investigation, he warned that “it would not serve the cause instead would destabilise the peace and security of the country that was the main objective of the perpetrators.”

Maulana Mahmood Madani condemned the serial bomb blasts of July 13 and termed this as a dastardly act for creating fear among general public and for disturbing peaceful social fabrics of the country. He called upon all sections of society to unitedly fight against this menace. He also expressed hope that such handful of destructive elements can never win over peaceful forces of our society.

Taking exception to media for naming certain obscure organization that sounds of belonging to a particular community just after blast without proper identification he questioned as to “why not the ambit of investigation extended to the forces who are always busy in openly destroying peace and security and communal harmony of the country under the garb of cow protection, construction of Ram Mandir and whose name suspected in recent terror blasts instead of blaming an outfit (Indian Mujahedin) which has not even obvious existence and whose wings reportedly clipped by governmental agencies.” However, he asserted whoever is culprit must be brought to justce and dealt with iron hand.

Appealing to media he said that it should not act as an accuser, prosecutor and judge but convey to the masses the true picture of events. He also emphasized at strengthening intelligence network in the country to nib such mishaps in the bud. “Preventive action is necessary not always cry after disaster” Madani said.

He said the government should not bow before a handful of misguided elements, but fight against them with courage and tenacity.

He expressed his deep sorrow over loss of lives in the bomb blasts and appealed to welfare organizations of every community for providing them with treatment and rehabilitation.
