A Statement by the Citizens for Justice and Peace, Communalism Combat, Muslims for Secular Democracy

Condemn the bomb blast in Delhi

The Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP), Mumbai, Communalism Combat and Muslims for Secular Democracy (MSD) condemn the irresponsible and criminal act of exploding a bomb near gate number five of the Delhi High Court. It is reported that the explosion occurred around 10.30 today morning. At least nine persons are feared to have lost their lives and an estimated 50 persons injured at the time of releasing this statement. The injured have been reportedly taken to nearby hospitals for medical treatment.  Weextend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the bereaved families and wish the survivors a wholesome recovery.

The blasts outside the Delhi High Court today have taken the lives of poor litigants who around that time throng in large numbers to access the portals of justice. It is tragic and unfortunate that this mindless act of violence has taken innocent lives. We urge that the authorities ensure just and equitablke compensation and reparation for the victims of this irreparable loss.

There can be no doubt that the repeated terrorist attacks in one or another part of the country in recent years are not just incidents of mindless violence but part of a sinister design. The obvious intention is to widen the communal divide, spread mutual suspicion and hatred between communities and thus endanger national unity.

The media reporting live from the scene of crime should express adequate caution, not to make speculative and emotion-driven assumptions and should operate professionally, respecting also the privacy of the unfortunate individuals injured in the incident. Investigations into different incidents of terror attacks in recent years have clearly revealed that extremism is not the monopoly of a particular religion. The mass murderers may claim to act in the name of this or that faith but they share a common objective: bleeding India by spreading communal discord through wanton acts of violence against innocent citizens.

We need to function in unison to combat the threats posed by such acts of violence.
