New Delhi, Mar 13: The All India Minorities Front today (Mar 13, 2006) alleged that the Pakistan ISI was responsible for the Varanasi blasts.
The AIMF condemned the recent blast at the Sankat Mochan Temple and also appealed to the United Nations and the US to declare Pakistan a terrorist state for repeatedly spreading terrorist activities in India.
''The Muslim community of India strongly condemns Pakistan for interfering in the internal affairs of India,''AIMF General Secretary Mohd Younus Siddiqui told a protest demonstration at Jantar Mantar.
The AIMF also urged the Centre to stop the proposed All India Yatra of former BJP president L K Advani saying that it would disturb the communal harmony in the country.
Addressing the demonstrators, Mr Siddiqui said,''to maintain peace and communal harmony, we appeal to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to ban the proposed yatra of Mr L K Advani.'' He alleged that through the yatra, Mr Advani wanted to take political advantage of the terrorist attack in Varanasi.
At a press meet at Nagpur on Saturday, Mr Advani said he along with BJP president Rajnath Singh would embark on 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' (India integration Yatra) against the policies of the United Progressive Alliance government which, he said, have resulted in the blasts at Varanasi.
