A tense situation had emerged in Ramgarh, Jharkhand as some Muslim groups clashed with Hindus after the latter had organised a peaceful procession on the account of Ram Navami, reports Dainik Jagran.
According to the report, the violence broke out when the procession entered the area belonging to the Muslim community. Following this, some people began to pelt stones at the rally, which resulted in further violence between two communities. The people involved in the procession also started pelting stones after they were hit by stones. The tense situation continued to prevail for nearly one and a half hours despite the presence of the police administration.
Similarly, another communal incident occurred in Kasmara, Jharkhand after Muslim communities allegedly objected to the passing of a procession organised by a group of Hindus on the occasion of Ram Navami festival.
According to the reports, the tension gripped when few Muslims opposed the Ram Navami Yatra to be continued in front of the Kamalapur Mosque. However, with the intervention of BDO Monia Lata, Inspector MO Rustom and Kasmar police station in-charge Rajendra Chaudhary, the situation was brought to control.
Reportedly, the Ram Navami procession was going through the Masjid mohalla in Kamlapur and the information regarding the procession route was already submitted to the authorities. But, the organisers were shocked to see Muslims objecting it despite having all the necessary permissions.
The area around Soorsagar had witnessed some clashes three days ago when clashing youths damaged a motorcycle. Some claimed that stoning of a house and subsequent clashes over the procession were an extension of the earlier clash which police did not handle properly.
The incident occurred when Muslims attacked the house of a Hindu family located in a narrow lane. The victim Hindus alleged that the police did not turn up in time despite their repeated calls to the control room.
However, the Police said clashes broke out during Ram Navami procession delaying their arrival at the house. Some vehicles were set on fire and mobs stoned houses and clashed with police injuring two cops in Vyapariyon ka Mohalla in Soorsagar police station.
