The Council of Indian Muslims, UK (CIM), condemned the bomb blasts in Varanasi calling it as, sheer cowardice and heartlessness displayed by human looking beasts and are a blot on humanity.

In a statement CIM's Chairman Munaf Zeena said, "This is the work of shameless and insensitive elements who have no human feelings and who can not tolerate good inter-communal relations in the country and India's march towards prosperity and development or of those who want to reap political benefits by diverting public attention from their crimes.

Whoever is behind this savagery must know, whatever their socio-political agenda, one thing is sure that their destiny is failure and humiliation both in this world and in the hereafter."

He added that such elements should remember that Indian society, at large, "is too mature to be pushed into the frenzy that they are aiming to create. This is a fact that has been proved again and again and, God willing, the plans of these savages will once again be foiled."

Zeena urged the Indian Government to launch an immediate inquiry into "these vicious crimes" and give severe punishments to the culprits.

"Our thoughts and prayers go with those who have been affected by such a despicable crime," Zeena added.
