Twelve Muslims were killed and about 30 others from the community were injured in the serial blasts in Jaipur, the Rajasthan Muslim Forum said on Friday.

Of the total 64 deaths and 150 injured, the number of casualties from the community was 12 while 30 other Muslims were injured in the explosions, convenor of RMF, a conglomerate of 15 Muslim organisations, Kari Mueenudin told reporters in Jaipur.

He said there were economic losses to the traders of the community too as the business of jewellery, clothes, shoes and other artisan works are being done by the community.

Thousands of daily wage earners, mostly artisans, have not come back to work, he said.

Twenty per cent affected people were from the Muslim community, he said.

Kari said RMF wanted a fair probe to arrest the culprits responsible for carrying out the blasts.

"Terrorists have no religion., they just disturb communal harmony in a country like India, which is advancing and showing global presence," he said.

Kari said political parties should rise above party politics and enable the state and the Central governments to complete the investigation.
