Strong show of unity by Muslims ahead of Malegaon youth's release

Malegaon: If not impossible, it is uncommon indeed to see a Muslim cleric from one sect leading prayers and delivering religious discourses in a mosque belonging to other sect. However, this rare but pleasant happening is witnessed in a Mumbai mosque where Muslims from Malegaon are camping while in the metropolis to seek bail for the local youths who are holed up in jail for the last five years after being arrested in the 2006 Malegaon blast case.
A group of about 30 Muslims from Malegaon comprising relatives, close friends, guarantors and lawyers of the seven accused are staying at Jama Masjid Ahle Hadees in Central Mumbai since Monday. Led by the Kul Jamaati Tanzeem leaders, they are in Mumbai waiting for the release of the accused from jail. The accused were granted bail by the Special MCOCA Court on November 05 and are expected to be released any moment. As the procedure for checking and verifying the bail documents is taking time longer than expected, the trustees of the Jama Masjid Ahl-e-Hadees are leaving no stone unturned to provide them relief and comfort. At the same time, their extended stay in the mosque has given birth to some extraordinary and rare scenes.
