Nashik: Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) sought permission of the local police for taking out a march protesting against the bomb blasts in Mumbai. But the permission was refused even after 4 days of continuous follow up.
About 200 persons died in the bomb blasts. There was one person from Lasalgaon too. Therefore, permission was sought for taking out a protest march. But police told the members of HJS that they were unable to grant permission and advised them to approach the official at Taluqa place. Accordingly, an application was given to the official at Taluqa place when they were asked to get opinion of the police from Lasalgaon. Lasalgaon police advised the Taluqa police against granting permission. Finally permission was not granted for even a peaceful march. HJS had similar experience earlier when they wanted to take out a march against the denigrating pictures of deities drawn by painter M F Hussain and against the proposed Eradication of Blind Faith Act.
