Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, the CLMC general secretary, Lateef Mohd. Khan, the A.P. Civil Liberties Committee's Ratnamala, Darsgah Jehad-o-Shahadat's Mahabub Ali, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board secretary, Maulana Abdul Rahim Quereshi, and others felt that the violence had political undertones and could not be characterised as communal violence.
"It's the BJP-RSS-VHP combine which is responsible for the trouble in the old city.
They want to terrorise Muslims and reap dividends during the forthcoming Assembly elections by polarisation. There's a definite political motive behind the pre-planned incidents by Hindutva forces," they said.
The CLMC was especially critical of BJP leaders, including the Union Minister for Urban Development, Bandaru Dattatreya, and the former MLA, Baddam Bal Reddy, for their alleged provocative statements, actions and "creating tension". It claimed that the Kishanbagh incidents had no relation to the Babari Masjid demolition anniversary that was being observed on December 6.
