United Muslim Forum (MUF), an umbrella grouping of various Muslim organizations and clerics of Telangana have asked Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao not to test their patience and immediately make a categorical announcement for reconstruction of the two mosques demolished in the Secretariat premises.
According to report
, the statement said, "However, the Government's silence shows that it is following into the footsteps of the Congress and that it has no importance of the sanctity of mosques and regard for the sentiments of Muslims. If this is the case, Muslims will finalize a plan of action for democratic protest for the restoration of mosques. The patience of Muslims should not be tested on this sensitive issue."
With reference to Babri Masjid demolition, the Muslim leaders stated that the Indian National Congress (INC) party had committed a mistake and it is still facing the wrath of Muslims. They also remarked that an alliance with the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) does not mean Muslims would keep quiet on the issue of mosques.
The Chief Minister on July 10 had expressed regret over damage to mosque and temple during the demolition of old buildings at the secretariat and promised to rebuild them.
Reacting to this, the MUF had said that regret alone was not enough and those responsible for demolition should be brought to book and demolished mosques should be rebuilt where they stood.
However, so far no any Hindu organization has warned State Government regarding the immediate reconstruction of a temple.
