An Open Letter To Ms. Sonia Gandhi
Ms. Sonia Gandhi,
All India Congress Party,
Sub: Uncertainty on Telangana issue may lead to violence – Do not use Muslims
shoulder to shoot the target
Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee express its deep concern on present situation of Telangana where peoples life and liberty are curbed on the name of security, to stop the Telangana March and the situation is very volatile. Under these circumstances any untoward incident may take place from any side. As per our information you are well aware of all these situations both from intelligence and your own sources. It is a matter of highly condemnable that even after knowing all this you have become a silent spectator. As a responsible leader it is not suitable for you to do so! Because at this moment to divert the attention from Telangana issue selfish and communal elements of any political party may take advantage and create communal violence in the city of Hyderabad. It is largely believed that the state and your own party are trying to create violence and communal colour may be given to it. This can be said and may be proved true also because Mr. Jagga Reddy who is the MLA of your party and government whip in the State Assembly has openly said that a Muslim political party is hurdle in the formation of Telangana. These types of statements may provoke the sentiments of Telangana people and ultimately the common Muslims may become the target of anger.
Because of these types of news, statements fear complex has developed among the Muslim community that once again they are going to become victims of regional politics. Because it is largely believed that by creating violent situation in the Hyderabad city, your party wants to shoot two birds with one arrow i.e. to change the CM and to dissolve the Telangana movement.
At this high time we want to draw your attention on this sensitive issue which is related to the sentiments of Telangana people as well as the life and liberty of Muslims. As you already know that Muslims are the suffers of this region and if any untoward incidents happen with them, then it is you who will be directly responsible for it as it is your party that is ruling in A.P. You will no more have any right to serve as the president of Congress Party and ultimately you will have to resign from that post and withdraw from politics.
Therefore, it is your responsibility to act promptly and decisively and direct the state government of A.P. not to play dirty politics with the people of Telangana especially Muslims. You take the decision as per your party policy but here we warn you not to use name of Muslims to suppress the Telangana movement. Finally we want to say that do not use Muslims shoulder to shoot the target.
Hope you will take serious note of this.
