Azamgarh, Aug 21 (UNI) Alleging that not SIMI but Hindu organisations were behind the simultaneous Ahmedabad blast, the Delhi Jama Mazid shahi Imam Ahmad Bukhari demanded the government to release the blast's prime accused Abul Bashar and warned of a nationwide agitation if the needful not done.
Imam Bukhari was here to meet the family of Abul Bashar at Binapara village in Saraimir area.
Later, talking to mediapersons, he said Bashar is ''innocent'' and they will be compelled to stage an andolan bigger than that of 1947, if Bashar not released.
Demanding judicial probe into the matter, he said the US email received a minute before the Ahmedabad blast should be investigated thoroughly.
Charging the Central and the State government with being ''biased'', he said '' in the name of terrorism Muslims are being harassed not only in Uttar Pradesh, but in entire country.'' He further said SIMI is not a terrorist organisation and main culprits are the Hindu organisations like RSS, VHP and Shiv Sena.
He said Muslims would no more keep mum and take to street over the arrest of Dr Tariq Kasmi and Abul Bashar.
