Expose and Punish Sanghi Terror,
Ensure Justice for Minority Scapegoats
Swami Aseemanand's confession to the role of Hindutva outfits in a series of terror incidents including the Mecca Masjid, Ajmer Sharif, Malegaon, and the Samjhauta Express blasts has made 'saffron terror' impossible to dismiss, even for hitherto reluctant investigative agencies, political forces and media. The confession, made in front of a magistrate in December and reiterated again in January in court, certainly carries more weight than the torture-tainted custodial 'confessions' which are often the only evidence produced by police and investigative agencies so far in terror cases. Aseemanand has said that he was moved to confess by the plight of a Muslim youth falsely accused in the Mecca Masjid blasts, who befriended him in jail. It is a disturbing question for Indian democracy and justice that had Aseemanand not confessed, the communal profiling and scapegoating of minorities by the investigative agencies and a pliant media would have continued unquestioned.
