Makkah Masjid firing enquiry report a mockery of Commission of Enquiries act: Shafeeq Mohajir
Wednesday, 25 May 2011
Hyderabad, May 25: Renowned Lawyer Mr. Shafeeq Ur Rahman Mohajir who had submitted concrete evidence to justice Backer Rao Enquiry Commission which was enquiring the police firing after the Makkah Masjid bomb blast, reacted harshly on the report and expressed dissatisfaction.
He said that justifying the police firing is an act of covering the failures of the Govt. He further told that this report is a mockery of the Commission of Enquiries Act and an insult to the spirits of the martyrs and their families.
By doing so, the commission has ridiculed the institutions of justice and governance. Police firing could not be justified from any angle. The commission has tried to conceal the facts. If the commission and the Govt. think that by justifying police firing and by absolving police officials, they can refrain the public from agitating, it an utopian dream. He said that the Govt. should not be under misconception that the Muslims and people honouring justice will keep quiet. They will challenge the report in court.
The claim of the police that it had used rubber bullets proved false before the commission.
