The Kasganj region of Uttar Pradesh has been on the boil since Republic Day, after communal clashes were reported following a Tiranga yatra by the ABVP, where people from particular community pelted stones which led to clashes.

The exact chain of events leading to the violence have been subjected to multiple versions. But it is clear that something triggered a fight between local muslims and the participants of the yatra, where in the ensuing violence a young volunteer named Chandan died. As per reports, it has been alleged by Chandan’s father, that his son was killed for refusing to chant “Pakistan Zindabad”.

Even though this death was widely mourned by Indians, some so-called liberals started to blame him for his own death.
