AIMMM Reacts on Kolkata Violence
By Our Staff Reporter

New Delhi, November 22 The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) has deplored the outbreak of violence in some areas of Kolkata, triggered by the untimely call of the little known organization All India Minority Forum for a protest against the extension of visa to the Bangladeshi writer Tasleema Nasreen which led to confrontation with the police. “It appears that the demonstration was taken over by political elements, across the spectrum, to exploit the accumulated outrage and anger in the Muslim community against the tragic happenings in Nandigram in a mischievous bid to damage both the image of the Community and the cause of Nandigram,” said Syed Shahabuddin, President, AIMMM in a statement issued today.

According to Shahabuddin, the AIMMM had been urging the Government to cancel the extension of visa to Tasleema Nasreen whose repeated attacks on Islam and the Holy Prophet had not only violated the law but also angered the Muslim community. “When the Muslim Ittehad Parishad, on which MMM West Bengal is represented, was planning to organize a public meeting on November 15 in Kolkata on the Nandigram question it was advised by the AIMMM not to mix up Nandigram, which was not a religious issue, with the Tasleema Nasreen question,” said the AIMMM leader.

According to Shahabuddin, the AIMMM once again cautioned the Muslim community not to play into the hands of irresponsible demagogues and agents provocateur, while exercising its legitimate right to participate fully in national politics as well as to seek due and prompt government action on any offence against their religious susceptibilities.

The AIMMM leader too appealed to the mass media as well to make a clear distinction between religious and communal questions and not to project the Kolkata incident as a communal outbreak. It noted with a sense of relief that the situation was brought under control, without much bloodshed, through timely action by the state government.

The AIMMM urged the state government to expedite relief measures and ensure return of the displaced to their homes in dignity and security.
