Reports show Hindus leaving their homes in Asansol, West Bengal after riots

As per ABP News report, following the riots in Asansol and other parts of West Bengal during Ram Navami celebrations, Hindus in the area are moving to ‘safer locations’.

According to one of the migrants ABP News talked to, the Hindus are moving to safer locations where ‘population of Muslims is quite less’. Another migrant reportedly said that Mamata Banerjee is doing nothing for the Hindus.

Parts of West Bengal have turned into a melting pot following Ram Navami celebrations on 24-25 of this month. Union Minister Babul Supriyo, pinned the entire blame for the Burdwan incident on Trinamool Congress and alleged that Mamata Banerjee was deliberately “antagonising” Hindu sentiments for votes. The epicentre of the violence seems to have shifted to Raniganj, a town about 100 KM from Burdwan. As per reports, the trouble began at the Hill Bustee area of the town when stones were pelted at a Ram Navami procession on Monday morning. This escalated into a clash between various groups which included bomb blasts and shots getting fired in various parts of the town.

Recently, fresh violence was reported from Asansol where a Ram Navami procession was attacked by both groups pelting stones at each other. Shockingly, even as Bengal burnt, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee was busy in the national capital forging an anti-BJP alliance for the upcoming 2019 general elections.

As of now, 3 casualties have been reported in the violence and 60 people have been arrested.

Section 144 has been imposed in certain areas adjoining Asansol in Bardhaman district and additional security forces, including the Rapid Action Force (RAF), have also been deployed alongside the police keeping in view law and order situation.
