SP leader Farookh Ghosi expelled from SP

Samajwadi-Party-logo (2)Lucknow, Aug 1 -Samajwadi Party's (SP) Vice-President for Maharashtra Mohammad Farookh Ghosi was today expelled from the party for demanding Rahin Yakub Menon, wife of hanged terrorist Yakub Memon be made a member of parliament. Earlier today the party had refused his demands and party's Political Pension Minister Rajendra Chaudhary here said party is not going to entertain this demand and will not get involved in any such controversy. Meanwhile, UP BJP president Laxmikant Bajpai demanded a clarification from SP president Mulayam Singh Yadav on the act of the party leader. "Such act of the SP Mumbai's leader is a clear cut anti-national act and supporting terrorism in the country," Mr Bajpai told reporters here while demanding action against the leader. The letter of the Mumbai seems that SP has no faith on the country's judiciary and they are just indulged in vote-politics, he said while adding that these people should be punished. "I also think Mulayam would not support such elements in his party," he opined. Mohammed Farooq Ghosi, claimed himself as vice-president of Mumbai's SP unit has written a letter to Samajwadi Party Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav yesterday urging him to induct Yakub Memon’s wife Rahin Memon in active politics and make her an MP. According to Farooq, the Memon family has undergone several hardships in life after the occurrence of 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts. They are mourning the death of Yakub Memon who was hanged to death on July 30. Ghosi, also added that the family has become helpless after Yakub’s death and injustice has been meted against them. Several family members of Yakub Memon were among the accused in the case and some of them were discharged for want of evidence. Yakub’s wife Rahin was also arrested along with her husband in the 1993 bomb blast case. She too faced charges of aiding and abetting terror acts, but was acquitted in September 2006 due to lack of evidence. The letter further says to Mulayam that, “You are our leader and you are known to help the poor and needy persons. According to me, Rahin has become helpless and there are many women in the country who are living miserable lives like her. We have to come forward to help these women. Today, Muslims are considered as vote bank and they are being sidelined by the mainstream political parties. I hope that you will consider my request.”
