HENB | Ranchi | 05 January 2015:: Serious communal tensions between Hindus and Muslims prevail in Barwadih in Giridih district in Jharkhand (now a BJP run state) after two groups of people clashed on Sunday morning.The police have imposed Section 144 prohibiting group activities.
Prohibitory orders were imposed at Barwadih after a clash broke out between members of two communities during a procession there on the occasion of birth anniversary celebrations of Prophet Muhammad, said the police.
“Prohibitory orders have been imposed under section 144 CrPC following the clash,” Giridih SP Kranti Kumar said.
After the people of two communities-Hindus and Muslims-clashed,the police intervened. But the cops faced tough time in restoring peace as stones were hurled on them.
Reports say shops and vehicles were burnt.Even two passenger buses were tried to be burnt.”The passengers faced untold miseries. They fled from the area and protected themselves”,said a report reaching Ranchi.
When some shop keepers objected, they were thrashed by the lawbreakers, said the report.Though a section of the police guarded the area, tension continued to prevail in Barwadih.
About 10 people, including children and policemen, received heavy to minor injuries and at least eleven vehicles were set on fire or damaged in the clash at Giridih town’s Barwadih locality on Sunday morning in a procession taken out as part of Prophet Muhammad’s birth anniversary celebrations.
The police, camping in the Barwadih and town area to ward off any untoward incident, have arrested few persons. The entire town has been turned into a cantonment to prevent the tension to escalate further. Prohibitory order has been imposed in the area following the large-scale violence. While confirming the incident, Giridih Superintendent of Police Karanti Kumar Garidesi said that the trouble began around 11 am on Sunday.
“There was about 15-20 minutes of stone-pelting when the procession was winding down in Barwadih under Muffasil police station. Seven bikes and two four wheelers were set on fire and two other buses were damaged. Some people, including two children and some personnel, received minor injuries,” said the SP.
Assembled Muslim mass attacked the Hindu shop owners and injured the Hindu passers by.
Meanwhile, Giridih BJP MLA Nirbhay Kumar Shahbadi, municipal council chairperson Dinesh Yadav, former Congress Gandey MLA Sarfaraj and some other leaders visited the riot- prone areas and interacted with the people of both the communities and appealed them to maintain peace.
One Hindu man severely injured by the Muslim rioters has been referred to Dhanbad Sate Hospital for adequate treatment. Some other victims viz. Ravi Basaiwala, Ashish Barnewal and Shravan Basaiwala told that they were attacked by the Muslim processionists all on a sudden. One Hindu shop-keeper Ashis Ram told that Muslim hooligans came with arms and looted Hindu shops rampantly.
Now it is revealed that around 40,000 people of the Muslim community stormed near the Barwadih area and a heated argument broke-out between the two group over the road collision between a bike and a medium vehicle. Soon, the revelers divided into two groups and thrashed each other. The mob also damaged windscreens of several vehicles and set several bikes on fire. The incensed mobs and local villagers started throwing bricksbats, leading the police to fire in the air to disperse the protesting mob before resorting to lathi charge.This led to a stampede in which two people including one policeman sustained injuries. The others were attacked directly be the violent Muslim mob.
Commoners questioned why the Muslim participants in the Milad-un-Nabi procession carried lethal weapons for the celebration meant for the birth day anniversary of Hazrat Muhammad, the self-styled peace keeper who is the icon of all Jihadis including Talibans and ISIS.
