Government of Goa,

Respected Sir,

Sub: Memorandum demanding to conduct impartial inquiry of recent Madgaon bomb blast and arrest the culprits.

This memorandum is submitted to you after conducting a massive Dharna in Madgaon wherein huge number of people , intellectuals and speakers have actively took part.

Our state Goa is the most prominent tourist place in India and known for its cordial mixed culture, peace and communal harmony. But, the recent happenings in Goa are tarnishing the dignity and image of the state and very harmful to the Hindu-Muslim-Christian unity.

Madgaon bomb blast which took place on 16-10-09 at 9.30 pm is the example for the anti social and anti national elements activities in Goa. These elements had planned to explode the bomb in four places on the eve of Deepavali which might have killed hundreds of innocent people and give way for communal clashes. It is very clearly understandable that the intention of those communal and terrorist outfits was to target the Muslim and Christian community by showing the fingers towards them as responsible for the blast and as terrorists or fundamentalists or anti nationals etc,.

Two persons have died in the blasts while carrying the live bombs in a scooter. They were the members and leaders of a communal outfit in Goa. The outfit has had active role in many communal violence and bomb explosions in many parts of our country. The outfit also circulates a periodical tabloid namely “sanathan prabhath” in Goa which fully contains venomous, violent and flammable matters and growing communal hatred among innocent Hindus.

It is very clearly visible that the bomb explosion was systematically planned by the fascist/communal forces. It is also learnt from the reliable media source that some vested political interests, media and police are trying to hush up the case and protecting the culprits.

Hence, we request you to kindly request the central Government to conduct impartial CBI investigation of this bomb blast and investigate the activities of the fascist communal forces. We also request the Government to arrest all the culprits of the bomb blast without any prejudice.

We hope you will do the appropriate steps in this regard.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

(Sayed Iftiyaz)
State President
Popular Front of India, Goa.
