15 years on, India denying justice to families of Samjhauta Express attack victims

64

Despite lapse of 15 years, the Indian government continues to deny justice to the families of victims of the Samjhauta Express terrorist attack despite availability of evidence.

On February 18, 2007, 68 persons, mostly Pakistanis, were killed in bomb blasts in Samjhauta Express, a cross border train service between Pakistan and India, said a report released, today, by Kashmir Media Service. The report maintained that the bombs were planted by Hindutva terrorists with connivance of Indian secret agencies.

It deplored that the Indian court acquitted four Hindu terrorists despite having evidence of their involvement in the heinous act, adding the court acquitted four culprits owing to their Hindutva connections. It pointed out that the court decision came even after a Hindu extremist leader and affiliated with RSS, Swami Aseemanand confessed during the investigations of having been a part of the incident.

The report maintained that acquittal of those involved in blasts showed Hindu extremists enjoy impunity under Modi-led fascist Indian government and that the court decision in this regard was a reflection of Indian state policy to protect Hindu terrorists.

It lamented that Indian agencies had blamed a Pakistan-based group despite seeing a clear Hindutva link to the Samjhauta blast. The report said that Samjhauta Express bombing was a false flag operation aimed at maligning Pakistan. It pointed out that the Indian secret agencies had staged several Samjhauta Express blast like false flag operations to defame Pakistan, adding the world must realize that the RSS-backed fascist BJP regime is a threat to global peace.INP
