Lucknow, Nov 5 (UNI) Clerics and political leaders drawn from all religions today decried the involvement of Hindu fundamental forces in terrorism in the country and demanded the government take immediate action against the RSS, Bajranj Dal, Shiv Sena and even the BJP.
The religious leaders, mentioning the involvement of Sadhvi Pragya Singh and a serving Army official in the Malegaon blasts, claimed it has given a new dimension in terrorism, as a national party's name has also been linked with it.
Under the banner of All India United Muslim Morcha (AIUMM), the religious leaders, who attended the press meet here, included Shia cleric Maulana Kalve Jawwad, Sunni cleric Maulana Syed Mohammad Hashim Mia Kichauvi, Ayodhya mahant Jugal Kishore Shastri, Kabir Math mahants Udar Saheb and Ramesh Das.
Sikh Pratinidih Board Chairman Dr Gurmeet Singh, UP Christian Association member R F Bani, Father Firoz Massih and AIUMM president M A Siddique were also present in the meet.
AIUMM president Dr Siddique said the government should take immediate action against organisations like the RSS, Bajrang Dal, Shiv Sena and even BJP to prevent such menance.
Maulana Kalve Jawwad said there is no place of terrorism in Islam, while Maulana Kichauvi said the disclosure of the hands behind the Malegoan blasts proves that the Muslims were being targetted in the issue of terrorism.
Mahant Shastri said now, it has been proved that the Gujarat government itself was behind most of the terrorist acts. ''If such things are not prevented immediately, there will be an emminent threat on the country's unity and intregity,'' he underlined.
Kabir Math mahants said that they have submitted a memorandum to President Pratibha Devisingh Patil for a high-level probe into the Batla House encounter episode.
Sikh and Christian representatives also criticised the organisations that were promoting terrorism in the country.
''Such things will break the country's unity and integrity,'' the religious leaders opined.
