WPI delegation meets Karnataka Home Minister on Abdunnasir Madani is...

Bangalore: A delegation of Welfare Party of India led by national Vice-President Dr. Lalitha Naik met the Karnataka Home Minister K.J. George on the issue of Abdunnasir Madani, the religious scholar and political leader from Kerala, put up in the Agrahara prison since August 2010 for alleged involvement in the 2008 Bangalore blast. The delegation informed the Minister that Madani was suffering from a host of diseases such as chronic diabetics and cervical spondulosis. With vision power of one eye fully lost, his other one eye is 80% affected. The Minister told the delegation that he will look into the matter and do whatever possible.

The delegation told the minister that Madani, who had lost one of his legs in a bomb attack in 1992 allegedly by R.S.S is unable to move and do his primary requirements without someone’s assistance. In the memorandum submitted, the Party alleged many of his diseases aggravated and health condition deteriorated during jail-ship in Parappana as he was denied proper health care. His treatment expense at the Soukhya Hospital, where he was admitted for a short period, was met, not by the Karnataka government but by his family and friends.

The delegation reminded the minister that Madani was imprisoned in Coimbatore jail accused in a similar case without bail or parole for nearly a decade. He was found innocent and acquitted by the Coimbatore court. Welfare Party leaders requested the minister to see that what happened in Coimbatore jail must not be repeated here at Bangalore. The memorandum clarified that prominent legal luminaries and political leaders like Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer, Chief Minister Oomen Chandi, and Leader of the Opposition V.S. Achuthanandan besides a lot of political, religious and community leaders had requested the former B.J.P government for providing medical care to Mr. Madani, but in vain.

It was told to the Minister that they expected much from the present government committed to secularism and justice and strongly demanded to give bail on humanitarian grounds for treatment, to speed up the trial by setting up a FAST TRACK COURT and to conduct the trial in an open court.

Regarding the gang-rape of a 22- year old Keralite student at Manipal University campus, the Home Minister said the government was seriously pursuing the matter and eight teams have been constituted for the investigation.

The delegation was comprised of P.C. Hamza, national General Secretary, Subramani, national Secretary, Kerala State Vice-Presidents Thennilapuram Radhakrishnan and Abdul Hameed Vaniyambalam, K. Ambujakshan, Kerala State General Secretary and Razack Paleri, Kerala State Secretary.
