Dear Devendra Ji,
As per a circular released on 26th August 2017, Jt. Commissioner of Police(Traffic)-Mumbai Amitesh Kumar seems prohibiting his own officers from checking vehicles entering Mumbai with animals for Bakri Eid.
The reason quoted for such prohibition is “such checks cause them harassment and hurt their religious sentiments of Muslims”. So does it mean that anything and everything on pretext of kill for Bakri Eid can enter Mumbai?. Mumbai along with entire maharashtra has complete beef ban and this lapse could ensure cows being transported for a kill in Eid. Also there is a major risk of explosives/RDX and bombs being transported to financial capital of India.
Mumbai does not seem to learn the lesson from 1993 blasts. Dawood Ibrahim is alleged to have purchased officials from Customs, Traffic, Police across Maharashtra to bring in RDX and conducted serial blasts with Tiger Memon and others.
As quoted in the circular, it seems that Joint Commissioner of Police Traffic, Mumbai has taken upon himself to facilitate such misdemeanor by issuing a circular prohibiting his staff from checking the incoming vehicles.
Mumbai already is in top of the priority list of cities to conduct attacks by Jihadi elements and had series of attacks including serial bomb blasts, train blasts, 26/11 to name a few. It had also witnessed large scale riots started by Muslims killing many in early 90’s. Mumbai unfortunately is a place, where global terrorists like Dawood Ibrahim, Chhota Rajan, Chhota Shakeel and Tiger Memon started their gangster/underworld work.
We strongly feel that as Home Minister/Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis takes the cognizance of the situation and takes necessary action to prevent any incident during festival season.
We end this open letter with a quote from our Prime Minister “Sabka Saath aur Sabka Vikas” and “Equality for all, Appeasement for None”. For the sake of appeasement of one community, request you to NOT put the entire Mumbai into Safety Concern.
A Caring Indian who has zero(0) tolerance against terrorism
