Pakistan Zindabad chanted during Muharram processions in UP and Bihar, sedition case filed

Muharram, which is an event of mourning for many Muslims around the country, was observed on 1st October.

It unfortunately generated some controversy in parts of the country after it was reported that many places had witnessed communal tensions during Tazia processions. Now further disturbing reports have come out from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh about pro-Pakistan slogans being chanted during these events.

As reported from Pipra Kathari village in East Champaran, Bihar, panic spread in the region when some youths wearing clothes with Pakistan written on it, started taking part in the procession with sticks as weapons and tried to create a communal atmosphere. Some of the youths were wearing t-shirts similar to Pakistan cricket team jersey, which reportedly had Nawjawan committee, Pipra Kathari tola written on the back.

Not just this, even slogans of “Pakistan Zindabad” were heard during the procession. Even though people protested against it while the procession was taking place, the police failed to take any action. But SP Vinay Kumar promised the same after carrying out an investigation. As a result of that, a case of sedition was filed against 21 persons on Monday.

The case has also reportedly been filed against the miscreants for the breach of communal harmony and raids are on to nab him. Some of the accused are named Nazir, Aftab, Sarfaraz, Salman, Azhar, Gauhar, Aujekh, Imran, Salaluddin and Nasseruddin.

A similar incident was also reported from Agra. On Sunday night, tension spread in Kirawali region of Agra after Pakistan Zindabad slogans were chanted post the Tazia procession. This resulted in a clash between the two communities wherein people pelted stones at each other.

As per the report, the Tazia was organised in front of a certain Vazir’s house which is in Azad Mohalla. There from Saturday midnight, songs were being played and according to neighbours, “Pakistan Zindabad” slogans were also chanted. They as a result complained to the police. Officials later arrived and after having a chat with the youths, returned back.

The youths though again started chanting slogans at 8 PM on Sunday after which people from the other community allegedly beat them up. As a result, the matter escalated and led to the stone pelting incident. The police after coming to know about the incident arrested 3 youths.

The SP of the region has stated that after the inspector completes his probe, cases would be filed against the accused.

In our report yesterday, we had also mentioned that a similar pro-Pakistan slogans were also chanted at Sheopur in Madhya Pradesh during a Tazia procession.
