Gujarat: Police confirm Congress leader instigated violence against non-Gujaratis

As already reported earlier, certain districts in Gujarat is facing widespread violence against non‑Gujaratis, mostly against people from Bihar and UP. The violence followed rape of a minor girl in a Thakor dominant village, after which a labourer from Bihar was arrested by police accusing him of the crime. After it was known that a person from Bihar has allegedly raped a Gujarati Thakor girl, it was reported that Kshatriya Thakor Sena instigated revenge violence against people from Bihar and UP working in the state, in various industries as well as people working as street vendors. The attacks were instigated by messages circulated in various social media networks. Following the attack, hordes of people from the two north Indian states have been leaving the state via buses and trains.

The president of Kshatriya Thakor Sena is Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor, who has intensified the demand for reserving 80% jobs for locals in the state after the incident. To contain the violence, police have arrested over 300 people, most of whom belong the Thakor Sena. Alpesh Thakor had denied that Sena has instigated the violence, and had demanded that all arrested Sena members should be immediately released by the police.

But now evidence has come up which show that it is Thakor Sena leaders who have started the violence against non-Gujaratis. Earlier a video footage had emerged where a man was seeing threatening non-Gujaratis. Now, police have identified the person and confirmed that he is MV Thakore, a local leader of the Congress party and elected Taluka Panchayat member. Police have arrested three persons who were seen along with Thakore in the video, but MV Thakore himself is absconding.

In the video, Thakore was seen threatening non-Gujarati people of massive violence if they don’t leave the state, and he had given them time till 9 PM on 8th October to do so. He says that after the deadline is over, he does not want to see anyone from Bihar and UP in his village. Everyone from Bihar and UP will have to leave, and they will come again to check, he adds.

It is important to note that while the violence against non-Gujaratis is happening for almost a week now, it didn’t find much attention from national media like they cover other similar incidents. There is such a large-scale violence against mostly economically weaker people in a BJP ruled states, and it was a not a top news for media outlets. Perhaps the reason behind this is the instigators of the violence. When some random people beat up cow thieves, it becomes a national crisis, but when Congress leaders lead a massive attack against thousands of people driving them out of the state, it does not deserve an outrage.
