After Yakub’s hanging, Hindu victims of ‘1993 Mumbai Serial Blasts’ seek execution of Dawood, Tiger Memon and Anis Ibrahim on war footings.
HENB | Mumbai | July 30, 2015:: Though the Muslims in India and specially in Maharashtra seen in morose due to the hanging of Yakub Memon, the nabbed perpetrator in 1993 Mumbai Serial Blats, the Hindu families of blast victim hailed Yakub Memon’s hanging, saying it is the victory of law and hoped that fugitive mobster Dawood Ibrahim, Anis Ibrahim and Tiger Memon would meet the same fate on urgent basis. The 90% victims of 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai were Hindus, causing a total killing of 257 and injuring 713 people. The 12 blasts spots were selected in the Hindu prone business and public places by the Pakistan fed Islamist.
A Mathura resident Ashok Chaturvedi (25) was killed in Mumbai following series of blasts on March 12, 1993. The deceased Chaturvedi’s family has all praise for the learned judges of apex court for ultimately providing justice to his family by awarding death sentence to one of the accused of the serial blasts.
“Our family specially my mother virtually broke down after the death of my elder brother Ashok Chaturvedi (25) who was seriously injured in Mumbai blasts on March 12, 1993 near Air India building and succumbed to injuries in Jaslok Hospital on March 17, 1993,” said Deepak, the younger brother of the deceased.
However, this Wednesday has become important in their family as apex court has confirmed death sentence of the main accused Memon, he said.
“It virtually is the victory of law of our country,” he said, adding Dawood should also be nabbed. “My family would be more satisfied if other accused specially Dawood would also be given the same treatment,” he concluded.
Over 22 years after the 1993 Mumbai blasts, Yakub Memon, the sole convict on death row, was hanged on his 53rd birthday on Thursday after failure of last-gasp efforts by his counsels to stall the execution that led the Supreme Court to hear his plea in the wee hours before throwing it out.
Memon, whom the Supreme Court had described as the “driving spirit” behind the worst terror assault till date that left 257 dead and 713 wounded, was hanged at the Nagpur Central Jail shortly before 7am, just about two hours after his last-ditch attempt to gain reprieve came to naught.
But, the other perpetrators like Dawood Ibrahim, Tiger Memon and Anis Ibrahim are still at large and obviously in Pakistan.
Pakistan has violated ceasefire hours after Yakub hanging.
An Army jawan was killed in sniper attack by Pakistan troops who targeted forward posts in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir in violation of ceasefire. Sepoy Rachpal Singh was critically injured in sniper fire by Pakistani troops at a forward post in Poonch along the Line of Control last night, a police officer said today.
Singh, who belonged to 22-Sikh unit, later succumbed to his injuries. He was guarding Parvinder post when the incident occurred. This is the third incident of sniper attack by Pakistani troops along the LoC this month. Two BSF jawans were killed in similar incidents along LoC in Kashmir Valley. There were two other incidents of ceasefire violations along LoC in the Valley yesterday.
If we don’t derive any direct connection of this ceasefire violation with Yakub’s hanging, the situations remain critical as the Gurdaspur terror attack on July 27 by LeT modules sent by Pakistan, shows the policy of our neighbouring county in the Western border.
In this context, India should design a new Pakistan Policy including the destruction o all terror camps in POK and Pakistan along with the nabbing the trio Dawood, Anis and Tiger to show them the gallow as soon as possible.
And this is the demand of the peace loving people and the family members of the victims of the Islamic Terror and upsurging Jihad in India.
