Bajrang Dal did Samjhauta, earlier blasts, says a threat letter to Jamiat Ulama

New Delhi, March 7 (indianmuslims.info ) Though the investigating agency probing into the blast that ripped two coaches of the Lahore-bound Samjhauta Express on February 19 has not yet reached any logical conclusion, a threat letter, delivered at Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind headquarters here as well as at its Mumbai office, claims that the blast was carried out by Bajrang Dal.

Though the said letter is unsigned, typewritten in Marathi, and even the address on the envelop is typewritten, it specifically mentions that the Samjhauta Express blast was carried out by Bajrang Dal.

The letter wondered whether the Jamiat people had forgotten the blasts carried out in the country earlier.

“We had warned you against being pretty wise and holding large conferences. But you people didn’t pay heed to our warning and held a large gathering at Malegaon on February 17, 18 and 19. We would have exploded the bombs there but the explosives were seized in Mumbai,” the threat letter reads.

“We will establish Hindu Rashtra here anyhow. No one can harm us. You people will be detained,” it adds.

Talking to indianmuslims.info here Wednesday, Jamiat’s secretary-cum-spokesperson Maulana Abdul Hameed Noamani confirmed the receipt of the threat letter typewritten in Marathi at both its headquarters and its office in Mumbai.

“Our organisation helped the victims after the bomb blasts in Samjhauta Express; that could be the reason behind the threat,” he guessed.

Addressing the Jamiat as “Fools,” the letter threatened Jamiat’s general secretary and Rashtriya Lok Dal MP from Dehradun Maulana Mahmood Madni of dire consequences if he continued to support the backward classes.

The Maulana has formally complained to the Delhi Police that he has received a threat letter from Bajrang Dal. A copy of the complaint has been given to Commissioner of Police Dr KK Paul while another copy of the same has been sent to the SSP, Dehradun.

Police sources said a case has been registered at the IP Estate police station and further investigations are on. “We are trying to find the origin of the letter,” a police officer said.

Maulana Madni informed the presspersons that on his way back to Delhi from Dehradun (Uttarakhand) by Masauri Express on February 19, he had received a call from +9144401 on his mobile at 9:15 p.m. threatening to teach him a lessen if he continued to attend meetings and conferences. On reaching Delhi he filed a written complaint in IP Estate police station on February 20 and lodged an F.I.R. there on February 26.

Lamenting that the police have failed to trace the caller as yet, the Maulana said he is not afraid of such threats.

“No power can stop us from striving for the rights of the oppressed, weak and deprived sections. In a democracy every person has every right to fight for his rights and any attempt to suppress it will be a mockery of law, and we will never let it happen,” he observed with a sense of confidence in his tone.
