11 years after the blasts at Mecca Masjid, on 16th April, 2018, a special NIA court acquitted Swami Aseemanand and others in the Mecca Masjid blast case. This was after examining over 200 witnesses and over 400 documents.
It is unfortunate that the then Congress government chose to use the blasts to create a bogey of #HinduTerror and popularising the word #SaffronTerror coined by the commie mag Frontline. The dragged the name of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh into it.
In 2010, we had written about how some sections of media playing into the hands of their political paymasters was happening through our article ” RSS, Bomb Blasts & Media Credibility ”
Some of the accused like Swami Aseemanand were held captive without a chargesheet for years together on multiple cases . Swami Aseemanand was especially targetted for the extensive work he was doing among the tribal communities and working as a bulwark against the Christian missionary organisations which were allegedly also the key funding agencies for the Congress party.
In their attempt to somehow discredit the Hindu organisations, clear terror links to outside the country were brushed aside . Read – The Enigma of Aseemanand
Now, the task of the government is to find the real perpetrators of the blast so that those & whose families who have suffered the blasts get solace.
