Reports claim exodus of Hindu families in Agra, Police deny claims

Hindu families living in Shastri Nagar colony of Agra’s Shamshabad road in Uttar Pradesh, are preparing for an exodus owing to the harassment meted out to them by the members of a “particular community”, as reported by One India.

The Hindu families have alleged that members belonging to a “particular community” use nefarious elements to create conflict and abuse them. It has also been alleged that these elements harass Hindu girls. Owing to this, they claim their life has become a living hell. Irked by this, the Hindu families have decided to sell their houses and go elsewhere.

As per a Patrika report, it has been alleged that a land in the Shastri Nagar colony has been illegally captured by two families. After this Hindus are being threatened to leave the area after selling their houses, otherwise those too would be illegally captured.

It is being claimed that many members of these Hindu families serve in the army. Despite this, they allege the women aren’t being able to leave their houses, and girls too are not finding it possible to go to school. Hence they claim, they decided to sell their houses and settle elsewhere.

The Hindu families allege that they have implored the administration to take action, but their pleas have fallen on deaf ears.

A Dainik Jagran report has claimed that the conflict stems from a land dispute and took a communal colour on Thursday. The report claims that two “minority families” reside in this colony where there’s an empty plot of land near their place of worship.

They had sought permission from the administration to host a religious ceremony there on Friday but were turned down. They then rushed to the District Magistrate threatening exodus, who then allowed them to carry out Ibadat (worship) without any use of a loudspeaker.

The next day Hindu families put up “house on sale” posters on their homes and threatened exodus, after alleging the harassment their women face at the hands of the “minority community”, for which no action was being taken.

Following this, police and administrative officials rushed to the spot and detained 30 individuals from both the communities. The Ibadat later took place in the evening under police protection.

The report claims that this dispute goes back to eight months when the residents of the colony were prevented from storing materials on the empty plot for some occasion, by the “minority community”.

With regards to the current situation, SDM (City) KP Singh has claimed that there’s no exodus like situation and that the problem stems from a land dispute.

Update: Following our report, Agra police issued a tweet in response to one of our readers that the matter didn’t pertain to any form of exodus. They claimed that the problem stemmed from a land dispute, which was being contested in the court. The headline has been changed the reflect the same.
