BJP has always asked for tough laws and action against terrorists. And now, ironically, the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) has invoked the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) against the 10 people arrested for their alleged involvement in the September 29 Malegaon blast. The Sections applied are 3(1)(i), which provides for a death penalty if the crime had led to death of an individual, 3(2) for life imprisonment for conspirators or abettors and 3(4) which provides for a minimum sentence of five years for anyone who is a member of the organised crime syndicate. Meanwhile, the PM is supposed to have called BJP leader LK Advani to tell him that he is upset with religious labels for terror, and that he doesn't believe in "Hindu" or "Islamic terror". Advani had said: "I read her[Pragya Singh Thakur's] affidavit and was shocked to find out that in a country like India where saints are respected and where we take pride in our rule of law and democracy such barbaric treatment has been meted out to a sadhvi."
