    According to the Newspaper,"Previously, we used to get invitation for all such meetings, but we don't know why we were not invited this time. Officials in the district administration know the significance of our organization that has taken several initiatives to preserve harmony in the region.Former DG and IGP Ajai Kumar Singh also had appreciated the initiatives taken by the committee in a letter in 2010 for resolving a communal issue through dialogues with VHP and Bajranga Dal. It is unfortunate that the district administration has ignored our organization when they held peace meeting recently," Masood said.He said that the committee is an apolitical organization that is represented by leaders from all political parties.Further, talking about recent incidents of murders, Masood said police should arrest all the accused in the murder of RSS worker Sharath Madivala and SDPI member Ashraf Kalaai immediately.
