Hindu-Muslim clashes rock Mograhat
Strong Hindu defense foils Islamists’ plan to persecute Hindus en masse
As fresh reports are coming in, the fair in village: Kamarpukur, P.S. Mograhat, District: 24 Paraganas (South), has been rocked by a series of Hindu-Muslim clashes, starting from evening of April 29, 2012 thus far.
In accordance with sources, problem erupted when an Islamist wanted to give a fake Indian currency note to a Hindu shopkeeper; he refused to accept it leading to a scuffle between the two. The situation would have ended there if the Islamist returned with more of his fellows to teach the Hindu shopkeeper a lesson. The pack of Islamists torched the entire shop and whoever tried to oppose them was beaten outrageously.
Hindu shopkeeper cried for help desperately; Hindu youths in the vicinity, acquainted with such postures of Islamists day in and day out, built up a strong defence and in no time smashed a few shops of Islamists forming the said pack.
This incident sparked off another set of troubles. Hundreds of Islamists turned up in the venue soon started vicious attacks on Hindus soon. However, unlike other times, Hindus did not withdraw to their houses and were found to implement countermeasures as well. And rule of administration became the greatest casualty as a result.
A number of police contingents along with SDPO rushed to the spot (on the very night) to rein in the situation.
RAF has been deployed to maintain a vigil in the area and tension continues to grip the area.
More details are being awaited.
