Jamiat to provide legal help to HC blast accused

New Delhi: A Muslim organisation has decided
to extend legal help to seven youths from Bihar arrested for
their alleged involvement in the September 7 blast outside
the Delhi High Court.

The Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, which had been extending legal
services to people from the minority community accused of
involvement in acts of terror, has decided to help the seven
accused from North Bihar.

Jamiat chief Maulana Arshad Madni said that
family members of the men accused of involvement in the blast
outside Delhi High Court and Chinnaswami Stadium in Bangalore
had approached the organisation following which the decision
was taken.

"It is for the courts to decide whether a person is
guilty. Before that, it is not appropriate to term anyone as a
terrorist," he said.

The organisation had extended similar help to some of the
accused in the Malegaon blast case. They were granted bail a
few months ago.
