New Delhi: With 13 crucial prosecution witnesses turning hostile in the Ajmer blast case, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Sunday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi must take firm steps in cases of terrorism as it has no religion, caste and creed.
RJD spokesperson Manoj Jha said terror simply is a philosophy, which needs to be decimated.
"I find it very regressive. If governments of the day behave like this that with the change of the government you will have a different position on issues like terror then it becomes very scary. What kind of faith people will have in the judicial system or in the judicial process? Terror has no religion, no caste, no creed," Jha told ANI here.
"And if the government chooses to protect those who have some ideological similarity with their ideology, I think it is going to ruin the entire system in the long run and the people of India shall never forgive the Prime Minister and his entire political party," he added.
The trial of alleged Hindu extremists in the 2007 Ajmer blast case has received a setback as 13 of 93 witnesses have refused to support the prosecution in their depositions so far. Seven of those 13 are `material witnesses` whose testimonies are crucial to prove the case.
