Bulandshahr: Shivling desecrated, Irshad arrested for urinating on the idol

Confirming the incident, the Bulandshahr police tweeted that the accused 'Irshad' has been booked under Section 295(Injuring or defiling a place of worship with the intent to insult a religion) and Section 153A(Promoting enmity between different religious groups) and immediately sent to jail.

In what appears as a wanton attempt to stoke communal tensions in the city, a man named ‘Irshad’ alias Irani had urinated on the Shivling in a Mahadev temple in city’s Jahangirabad neighbourhood. The man was immediately arrested by the Bulandshahr police after a complaint was filed by Bajrang Dal members against Irshad for trying to spoil the sanctity of the ancient Shiv temple.

In a report by Sudarshan News, the Bajrang Dal member Yatinder Gehna said, “A Muslim man named Irani was caught red-handed peeing on the Shivling of the ancient Shiv Temple in old mandi of Jahangirabad area. He was often found lurking around the temple premises. People here are angry with his act. He has fled from the place. A police complaint had been filed against him and he has been nabbed from his house.”
