Minorities feel they are being targeted: PM

IANS | Sep 10, 2011, 01.30PM IST

NEW DELHI: The minority communities often feel they are being unfairly targeted in the "aftermath of unfortunate incidents", Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday said, inaugurating the National Integration Council meet, which is to debate the communal violence bill.

Singh said while the law should be allowed to take its own course, the investigating agencies should be free of biases and prejudices of any kind.

"It is a matter of great satisfaction that in recent years, relations among various communities have by and large remained harmonious," the prime minister observed.

"Members of this council have played an active role in ensuring that people respond with maturity to developments that may otherwise flare up communal tempers."

"Nevertheless, we need to maintain a continuous vigil in this regard. We also need to recognise that members of the minority communities often have a perception of being unfairly targeted by law enforcement agencies in the aftermath of unfortunate incidents," he said.

His remarks come in the wake of recent investigations by security agencies into the role of Hindutva groups in bomb attacks like the Ajmer Sharief Dargah and the Hyderabad Mecca Masjid, both in 2007. Earlier, the investigating agencies had suspected the role extremist groups from the minority community for the attacks.

"While law must take its own course, we need to ensure that our investigating agencies are free from biases and prejudices of any kind. The media also has to play an increasingly important and constructive role in promoting peace and harmony in our society," he added.

The communal violence bill seeks to hold state governments and functionaries responsible for any targeted attacks on minority communities and for stricter punishments against perpetrators of violence against any particular minority or downtrodden communities.

Soul jyot ji thanks for the article.

Which planet such people live on when they make statements like,

".... We also need to recognise that members of the minority communities often have a perception of being unfairly targeted by law enforcement agencies in the aftermath of unfortunate incidents," he said.

Really Eh! That is why we call such people politicians who are there to deny bad activities done by their cronies and take credit for all the good.

I believe once "Anna Hazare" bill takes force people will become so much honest specially the politicians lol.

No limit to baloney being dished out at the highest echelons in India.

Sat Sri Akal.
