New Delhi, Sep 15 (UNI) Member of the National Integration Council(NIC) Shabnam Hashmi and writer and social activist Ram Puniyani today shot off a letter to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, expressing concern over what they called the investigating agencies' biased and partisan role in probing acts of terrorism.
They urged him to instruct the authorities to conduct impartial probe into the Delhi terror blasts to unravel the real culprits.
They said it was sad that acts of terror had been happening and the Home Ministry had been watching helplessly.
Ms Hashmi and Mr Punyani said in a number of incidents of recent blasts in towns of Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka and Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh, the police had found Sangha Parivar outfits to be involved but despite that every time a terror act was committed, the agencies and the media immediately declare that it was the handiwork of some Muslim organisation without any proof, and then follows the harassment and torture of so many innocent people.
''If we look at the timing of the terror attacks, it is very clear that only one political outfit is gaining from it and it is the Sangh. With their eyes on the Central government, their agenda of polarising the voter is going ahead successfully,'' the letter said.
The two activists also sought to draw the Prime Minister's attention over the fact that the meeting of the National Integration Council had not been held except once.
''The first agenda papers which were prepared, if you remember, were highly communal and objectionable. A number of us had raised the issue during the meeting and the Home Minister had replied, 'treat them as scrap' in your presence. Probably the Home Minister realised that people like us were too uncomfortable to have in the NIC, who would raise these questions. The NIC was never convened again. It was supposed to meet every six months,'' the letter said.
