"In light of these facts, there is no point in talking of revoking the cases. Let the courts decide, but the government can take care of those innocents who are languishing in jail and the chargesheet has not been filed by police," Bukhari said.
By this yardstick, the government cannot release anyone. For, the only case where the charge-sheet has not been filed is the one relating to the Gorakhpur blasts, but no one has been arrested in this case.
Imam Bukhari, who has in the past accused the Akhilesh government of ignoring interests of Muslims, now appears satisfied. "At least they have started giving attention to Muslim issues," Bukhari said, but added that Muslim support to SP should not be taken for granted.
