In a blistering attack on the Congress and the Left parties for the "victory celebration" on the acquittal of Abdul Rashid Madani in the Coimbatore blasts case, the BJP has said it is a "terror glorification" and brazen climax of hypocrisy-secularism.
Describing Madani as India's Osama-Bin-Laden, BJP national vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that the competition between the Congress and the Left parties to save Madani clearly showed that they were using their full might to save the culprit.
Naqvi added that a few months back the Congress and the Communist parties had put up posters of Madani during by-elections in Kerala and had equated him with Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Marx and Lenin just for the vote-bank politics.
"It was shameless capitulation for vote-bank politics," Naqvi said.
The BJP leader said that passing resolutions in Kerala Assembly by the Congress and the Left to release Madani, meeting Madani in Jail by the leaders of the so-called secular parties, getting photographed with Madani to be shown in hoardings and posters on the roads of Kerala and launching campaign to secure Madani's release were proof of the fact that the UPA Government and the State Government had betrayed the country on this issue and had surrendered before the terrorism.
Naqvi said that from the very beginning the brazen surrender of the Congress and the Communist parties before the terrorism - be it the repeal of the POTA, be it the hanging of Afzal Guru or the release of Madani from jail, all these moves go to boost the moral of the terrorist and separatist elements. These anti-national forces have started to feel that a terror friendly era has begun in the country in the name of secularism.
Naqvi cautioned the Congress and the Communist parties to draw lesson from pro-terror policies of Pravez Musharraf.
"The terrorism which was nursed by Pakistan so far is proving to be the greatest danger to the existence of Pakistan. Crores of patriotic Indians would give befitting reply to the victory celebrations by the Congress and Communist parties in support of Madani." Naqvi said.
