Hundreds of Muslims from Azamgarh town of Uttar Pradesh has arrived at the Old Delhi Railway Station in a special train christened "Ulema Express" . They want to hold demonstrations in the national capital to protest against police shootout at Batla House in which two terrorists from Azamgarh were killed! It seems they are particularly angry with M C Sharma being awarded Ashok Chakra.
Mulana Amir Rasadi, convener of Ulama Council that organized the Ulema Express trip, said.
"We waited enough but by awarding the Ashok Chakra to M C Sharma (the police inspector killed in the shootout) the Congress led UPA (United Progressive Alliance) has authenticated the September 19 Batla House encounter. "The fact remains that we have lost our two promising youths. Sharma was honoured even before any probe into such a horrible incident. We have lost all faith in the system and are now united to show New Delhi our real strength,"
