Miscreants break a goddess’ idol in Saharanpur where such incidents have happened before

The Rampur Maniharan village has been a witness to tense scenes after some miscreants broke an idol of a goddess. As a result of that, irate locals demanded action against the perpetrators.

The incident took place on Sunday night in a 47 year old religious shrine where the goddess is worshipped. There are a total of 7 idols in this shrine and the miscreants vandalised the idol of the senior goddess.

The villagers discovered the act on Monday morning when they came to offer puja at the shrine. After the news of the incident spread, a large number of villagers accompanied by Hindu groups and BJP workers started protesting. All these people took out a protest march against this incident and reached the police station to demand action. Later the Sanatan Dharma Sabha filed a complaint against unknown persons.

As per other reports, the police soon started to set up a new idol in the shrine. The police also assured the villagers that the culprits won’t be spared. Later the MLA of the region quelled the anger of the people.

While reporting this incident, a disturbing claim was also made by one report that such incidents have been regularly happening in the region.

This claim holds true to a certain extent as it has been reported how an idol situated inside a Sree Tripur Maa Bala Sundari Devi temple in Deoband, Saharanpur was desecrated. This incident happened in September of this year.

Also in May it was reported that caste based tensions had spread in the area after the miscreants had desecrated an idol in Badhgaon village.

Apart from Saharanpur other regions too have seen similar instances. The Kanjarhodi village in Babri, UP had also seen a desecration of Maa Durga’s idol from a local temple.

We have in the past also reported a similar instance of idol desecration. In July, unidentified elements had vandalised an old Shiva idol in Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh. When one of the culprits (who was possibly mentally unsound) was arrested, he claimed that if people did not protest against Aamir Khan’s (on-screen) deeds in the movie PK, why should his acts be opposed.
