New Delhi, Nov 17 (UNI) Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind President Maulana Ashad Madani and two others today filed a PIL in the Supreme Court seeking directions to the government to order a judicial inquiry in all cases in Malegaon since the 2001 communal riots.
The petitioners have also prayed to the apex court to direct the Maharashtra government to make public the Justice K N Patil committee report and the action taken report from the government.
They further prayed for the immediate release of the nine accused arrested for their alleged involvement in August 2006 Malegaon bomb blasts in which over 50 people were killed.
The petitioners have also prayed to the apex court to monitor the investigation.
The petition filed through counsel for the petitioner, Anis Suhrawardy, urged the Supreme Court to order a judicial inquiry either by a retired Supreme Court Judge or a sitting High Court Judge to book such people or organisations instrumental in destroying the secular fabric of the country and posing a grave threat to the territorial integrity of the nation.
They have submitted a list of seven cases alleging that only the Muslim community was being blamed for all terrorist attacks in the country and recent investigation by ATS, Mumbai has exposed a terror network involving Hindu fundamentalists and Army personnel.
The petitioners have sought action against those responsible for partial investigation into the terrorist attacks.
