Recent cases of Muslims forced to chant ‘Jai Shree Ram’ fake, elements trying to fan communal tension in UP: UP DGP

There has been a recent spate of fake incidents being reported where Muslims have been allegedly beaten up and asked to chant Jai Shree Ram. These cases have mostly turned out to be completely fabricated. 

The recent spate of fake cases where it was reported that Muslims have been forced to chant Jai Shree Ram after being beaten up have raised alarm bells in Uttar Pradesh. The UP DGP spoke to the media and said that such cases of communal strife usually turn out to be false and that certain elements are trying to fan communal tension in Uttar Pradesh.

UP DGP OP Singh said that incidents that were reported from Aligarh, Unnao and Kanpur had nothing to do with anyone forcing to chant ‘Jai Shree Ram’. OP Singh appealed to the people not to pay attention to communal reports, as in the recent times’ attempts have been made to spark tensions in the state. He also added that they should try to understand the facts of the situation.

Appealing to the media too, digital and conventional, the UP DGP said that such rumours should not be fanned without facts.

Muslim being forced to chant Jai Shree Ram in Unnao

The Imam of Jama Masjid had claimed that 3 madrasa boys were beaten up by the Hindu boys after they were asked to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’. The Imam had also threatened ‘unprecedented action’ if the Hindu boys involved in the fight were not arrested by the police.

However, this incident turned out to be fake. As it turns out, according to the enquiry conducted by UP police, it has been found that a fight had broken out between two groups while playing cricket. In a press conference where ADG (LO) P V Ramaswamy and IG (LO) Praveen Kumar were present, they denied that anybody was forced to chant any religious slogan, and said that it was a fight between two groups on the playground that had turned violent.

UP DGP OP Singh mentioned this incident as an example of fake cases where elements are trying to fan communal tension by alleging that they were forced to chant ‘Jai Shree Ram’.

Muslim being forced to chant Jai Shree Ram in Kanpur

Alluding to this incident too, the UP DGP said that this incident of a Muslim man being asked to chant Jai Shree Ram turned out to be fake.

Reports had emerged that a Muslim auto driver in Kanpur, Aatib, was allegedly thrashed for not chanting Jai Shree Ram. It was reported that he was locked up inside a public toilet by three people for refusing to chant ‘Jai Shree Ram’.

However, the allegations that Aatib was forced to chant Jai Shri Ram are false. According to Police, the men who boarded Aatib’s auto were drunk and matters escalated when they refused to pay the fare and got into a heated argument. However, Aatib was not forced to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ as claims made by Aatib. SP South Raveena Tyagi had confirmed to OpIndia that the news of Aatib being forced to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ is false.

There has been a recent spate of fake incidents being reported where Muslims have been allegedly beaten up and asked to chant Jai Shree Ram. These cases have mostly turned out to be completely fabricated.
