Vic­tims of Pol­i­tics

India Today - - MAIL - MAYA AGARWAL, via email

It is un­for­tu­nate that due to vote-bank pol­i­tics of the Uttar Pradesh gov­ern­ment, peo­ple in Muzaf­far­na­gar and towns and vil­lages in its vicin­ity are suf­fer­ing (“Caught in the Cross­fire”, Novem­ber 11). The cruel pol­i­tics, apart from caus­ing death and de­struc­tion, has lead to a break­down in the trust and con­fi­dence that used to ex­ist be­tween peo­ple of dif­fer­ent com­mu­ni­ties. Sa­ma­jwadi Party’s Azam Khan is largely re­spon­si­ble for the ri­ots, as he in­cited Mus­lims in name of Modi and Gu­jarat, and then forced the po­lice into not tak­ing any ac­tion against the ri­ot­ers. The Supreme Court should or­der a thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the ri­ots and the in­ves­tiga­tive agen­cies should see to the fact that real cul­prits are brought to task, ir­re­spec­tive of their caste, re­li­gion or po­si­tion.
