    Mumbai: Organisers of the protest rally at Azad Maidan could face a stiff bill for the riots that broke out three weeks ago. A preliminary report compiled by the Crime Branch estimates that property worth Rs. 2.12 crore was damaged in the fracas, and the investigating team will now submit a letter to the collector's office, which will then forward it to the organisers asking them to pay for the damages caused.

    The August 11 protest rally that ended in vandalism and destruction of property was organised by Madinatul Ilm while Raza Academy supported it and participated in it. "If the organisers fail to pay for the damage caused, their properties might be attached, although it's a very lengthy process," said a Crime Branch officer, on condition of anonymity.

    On the day of the incident, several rioters went on a rampage torching police vehicles, BEST buses, media vans, and other private vehicles present at the spot. Based on the property that was damaged, the Crime Branch officials corresponded with respective agencies and then arrived at the provisional figure, which could go up further. "We had written to various organisations, including the BEST, and the police department's vehicle section. We also liaised with private news channels to ascertain the damages. The primary estimates have touched Rs. 2.12 crore," said Himanshu Roy, joint commissioner of police (Crime).

    Apart from this, the BMC has also sent a bill of Rs. 3 lakh to the Mumbai police commissioner pertaining to the damage of the Amar Jawan memorial, which will also be recovered from Raza Academy. The BMC has also expressed its willingness to register a separate FIR for the damages to the memorial, but cops are yet to take a decision on this matter.

    "We will send the total to the Mumbai collector who will recover the money from the organisers. If necessary, the participants in the rally will be asked to pay as well, regarding which a call will be taken soon," said the Crime Branch officer.

    Good show!

    A bamboo can also be shoved up in the Raza President's posterior.

    This Academy is known to rake up irrelevant issues as if they are the custodians of Islam!

    Good. Jaisa karo, waisa bharo. Infact, this should be applied henceforth on all organisations which take to vandalizing Government, Private and Public properties. The sum actually should be double the loss incurred, with a warning that next time they indulge in these sort of activities, the fine would be 5 times the value of loss. For a third time, 10 time the loss incurred. And for the 4th time, all would be thrown in jail for an indefinite period, plus money would be recovered from their bank accounts, investments, and immovable properties like house, lands, gold ornaments possessed etc.

    Rushdie visit: Muslim groups warn Cong of electoral consequences

    With every passing day, anger against the government decision to allow controversial writer Salman Rushdie in India is mounting. After top Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband, many Muslim organizations are agitating against the decision.

    Mumbai-based Raza Academy shot a letter to the UPA Chairperson, Sonia Gandhi demanding the cancellation of visa to Salman Rushdie.

    Raza Academy members on Wednesday agitated in a unique way. They were wearing the mask of Salman Rushdie and polishing the shoes of Muslims coming for namaz in Minara Mosque.

    In the wake of elections in five states and of Mumbai Municipal Corporation, Mohammed Saeed Noori, General Secretary of Raza Academy warned of electoral consequences. His letter states, “You must also think about the electoral losses in coming election.”

    However, answering a question if Raza Academy will oppose the Congress in the coming Municipal election in Mumbai, Saeed Noorie replied in negative. He said, “We are not making any announcement as of yet but, Muslims in general will vote against Congress for this decision.”

    Raza Academy also demanded the cancellation of Visa to Tasleema Nasreen and reminded Sonia Gandhi about the infamous Satanic Verses. It said, “Salman Rushdie and Tasleema Nasreen hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims and they roam free but if Muslims agitate, they are fired at, arrested and cases are filed against them.”

    It also asked the question why in the name of democracy our government allows the people like Tasleema Nasreen and Salman Rushdie who hurt the sentiments of minorities. They are danger to peace in our country.

    Maulana Moinuddin Ashrafi also criticized the UPA government and said, “The government is committing a mistake. It did not care for the millions of Muslims.”

    Mustaqeem Makki, editor of Huda Times said, “Government decision is not at par with its secular credentials.”

    He added, “If government does not take corrective measures it will have to bear the consequences in the coming election.”

    Feeling the heat of growing anger against Congress led UPA government’s inaction in Salman Rushdie case, a delegation of Muslim leaders from Congress including, Arif Nasim Khan, Minister of Minority Affairs, Maharashtra, Nizamuddin Raeen, President Minority affairs Mumbai Congress are going to meet Chief Minister of Maharashtra Prithviraj Chauhan on Wedensday.

    Idiots like Raza Academy coots are only acting as sleeping partners of the Thackaray family to whip up passions and light the embers of the fire that is there awaiting ignition!

    All this payment will come from Gulf donations to this sort of Islamic institutions so 2 crore is small amount as fine,

    When these guys have caused hell of unrest in a business city like Mumbai. They have caused the lot of loss to business & productivity as well as created social insecurity among the citizens. Therefore the damage assessment should be in a comprehensive manner not just material or property loss.

    They must be fined in tune to multiples of 50 to 100 crore on wards so that their overseas pay master also feel the heat in their pure a@@.
