Since last 2 days, media is talking about the withdrawal of cases against the Muslim leaders involved in Muzaffarnagar riot. I am completely against such notion because of the very fact that they belong to a particular community of the country doesn’t mean they are leading the whole population of that community.
Uttar Pradesh government’s decision to withdraw the cases of violence and riots against the leaders of Muslim community is completely wrong. Akhilesh Yadav
should understand that Muslims are not different from the rest of the country and they are part of this vast and diverse country. They come under the purview of same constitution and law of the Land so there should not be any wrong support to any community.
People of UP had given him mandate to get a good and corruption free governance. People of that state were fed up of with last 20 odd years of governance of different leadership in the state. We had seen different political parties running the government in state but none of them were truly interested in good governance.
It is imperative to understand that in those years’ politics was mainly revolving around castes and religion. But this time especially youth of the state, overwhelmingly supported Akhilesh led Samajwadi party because they were seeing a young face with good education in state election campaign. People of the state had chosen him over the others just because of his own agenda and promise of good governance. Samajwadi party could not have won that election without Akhilesh’s face.
Political leaders of this country should understand that Muslims are now not following any leader. Most of the so called Muslim leaders are afraid of even talking about plight of Muslims in this country and therefore Muslims as a whole are not follower of any of these leaders. They are leaders of political parties to just woo the Muslims’ vote and nothing else.
By trying to save such leaders in Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh led government is doing same whatever had been done by Modi led government in Gujarat. Maya Kodnani, one of the accused of Gujarat
riots, was a minister of Gujarat government and later on she had been convicted in Gujarat riots cases by Court of Law.
In my personal opinion, Akhilesh should not support any such move of withdrawal of cases against such people because it is against the constitution of country.
