Curfew relaxed in riot-hit old Hyderabad

Is India still an uncivilized nation?

Hyderabad: Activists belonging to the Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee in a fact finding report blamed the state government and the police for the riots that spread in Hyderabad in second week of April. They also accused Hindutva brigade of provocation and instigating violence.


"Congress government responsible for the communal violence in Hyderabad city. RSS outfits communalizing the situation and polarizing population by developing communal sentiments", the activists observed in their report.


"Communal violence that spread in Hyderabad is not a sudden act of violence. In recent years, communal fever is rising in Andhra Pradesh.


"It is a part of continuation of greater conspiracy that has impact especially in the Telangana region because of regional movement for separate Telangana State which is captured by BJP to gain political power.


"They are working hard with the RSS outfits to communalize the situation and polarize population by developing communal sentiments. Due to this, communal hatred has increased in this region by which both the rural and urban peoples’ lives are in danger and have become the target of Hindutva fascists ideology", they noted.


Accusing VHP leader Pravin Togadia, who visited Hyderabad before and after the riots, of provocation and questioning the inaction of the state government, the activists noted, "After Togadia left Hyderabad, riots started in Hyderabad and curfew was imposed in several parts of city, section 144 was imposed in Hyderabad and Secunderabad areas. During this period also Togadia visited the city and the Congress government permitted to hold a camp of VHP and Hindu Vahini and arranged facilities to him where he addressed (rally) and once again instigated the cadre."


Riots began in Hyderabad Sunday on April 08 when the news spread that the Hanuman temple is desecrated in the Kurmaguda area. The fact finding team quoting from the people claimed that local corporator Sahadev Yadav with the help of his henchmen is taking care of this temple. Problem began when at around 7-8am on the fateful day, someone started shouting that green colour is spread on the wall.


The fact finding reports says: "(after this) Local people were trying to sort out the issue by themselves but some youths started making calls and SMSs from mobiles. Within no time a mob gathered at the spot and started shouting slogans of Jai Shri Ram.


"Govind Singh of VHP, BJP and Hindu Vahini leaders also arrived within minutes and one of them announced that there is a leg of cow placed on the ventilator.


"The team asked the locals as to how do they know that it was the leg of a cow, they could not say anything particularly but said they heard VHP and Bajrang Dal leaders saying this, but they did not see it personally."


The fact find team comprising Prof. Rehana Sultana, Lateef Mohd Khan, Kaneez Fathima, Shefali Jha, S.Q.Masood, M.Mandakini, Yahiya Khan and Mohd Ismail Khan observed: "After the Madannapet incidence, many Masjids were desecrated by throwing the dead dogs and pigs."


This committee also observed, "In the violence Muslims houses were attacked, their properties destroyed, women were misbehaved, Muslim youth were attacked but police instead of providing protection to Muslims were shielding Hindutva forces."


The report also accused police of arresting number of innocent Muslim youths and also showing many youths absconding by implicating them, who were acquitted in the Makkah Masjid blast case.


Questioning the role of police, the report observed, "Some of the locals also said that the police personnel were greeting each other with Jai Sri Ram."
