The bombs that went off near a mosque on Friday afternoon shocked the local community in Malegaon.

More than 600 angry Muslims marched to the local police station to protest the blasts, sources said.

The situation threatened to spiral out of control when Muslim leaders in Delhi telephoned Malegaon to pacify local leaders.

Muslim clerics in Delhi asked the local leaders to disperse the crowd and maintain peace and communal harmony.

Jamaat Ulema Hind chief Mahmood Madni and his associates based in Delhi and elsewhere are constantly in touch with community leaders in Malegaon urging them to maintain peace.

The Jamaat Ulema Hind has a huge institutional network in Malegaon. Congress leaders have activated the network to ensure that peace is maintained at all cost.
