Bitta flays Jamia’s move to give legal aid to terror suspects

Indore (PTI): Anti-Terrorist Front President Maninderjeet Singh Bitta on Sunday criticised Jamia Milia Islamia University Vice-Chancellor Mushirul Hasan for extending legal aid to two students arrested in connection with the Delhi serial blasts.

“I strongly condemn the decision of Jamia VC to extend legal aid to those arrested in connection with the Delhi serial blasts,” Bitta told reporters here.

The students had been arrested in connection with the September 13 blasts after an encounter in the national capital, in which two suspected militants were killed.

Hasan had extended legal assistance to the duo.

Bitta criticised the Union Ministry for reportedly speaking in favour of SIMI and alleged that due to vote bank politics there has been a spurt in terror incidents.

“Till such politics continued, terrorism will continue to thrive in the country,” he said.

Bitta said there is a strong need for creation of Anti-Terrorist Courts on the lines of military courts to try anti-national elements and once such court convict a person, not even the President of India should have the power to entertain his/her clemency petition.

He said that the present government lacks the will to fight terrorism and added that like Punjab it should be fought unitedly by pursuing aggressive policies.

Praising Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, Bitta welcomed his statement that the country needed tougher laws to deal with terrorism.
