Uttar Pradesh: Muslim mob attacks Hindu temple, damages the structure with weapons in Lakhimpur Kheri

Groups of Muslims under one Wasim allegedly tried to dig a drain to remove the temple, when the Hindus objected they attacked with weapons, leading to communal tensions in Gauriya village in Lakhimpur Kheri.

After the Muslim mob allegedly desecrated Durga temple in Delhi, a similar incident has occurred in Gauria village Lakhimpur Kheri district of Uttar Pradesh when a mob of Muslims attacked a Mahadev Mandir and damaged the structure. The incident was reported in Gauriya village in Fardhan area on Sunday.

According to reports, on Sunday, an argument between Muslims and Hindus broke out on the issue of construction of a sewage channel next to the temple premises by Muslim men. The incident took place when some Muslims men allegedly started digging in front of the Mahadev temple to construct a sewage channel despite objections raised by the Hindu community.

The argument turned violent after a group of Muslims attacked the temple premises and damaged the structure. According to the Hindus in the village, who are reportedly the minority community, Muslims not only vandalised their temple but also attacked and injured one person.

The villagers claim that the Muslim groups in the village wanted to deliberately attack Hindus and used trivial issues as the pretext to attack minority Hindus residing in the area.

Further, the villagers alleged that the Muslims residing in the area were unhappy regarding the presence of the temple in the area. They had threatened to demolish the temple before. The villagers claim that Wasim, Sharafath Khan alias Nasir Khan, Rashid had threatened to demolish of the temple earlier too.

Villagers stated to media that the main accused Wasim is a history-sheeter and has many criminal cases against him. Despite a constructed drain being present, Wasim and his associates allegedly wanted to deliberately dig up another drain so they can get the temple demolished.

As the situation turned extremely violent, one of the villagers informed the police regarding the clashes. The Neemgaon and Fardhan police officials soon arrived at the spot along with the Additional Superintendent of Police and took the situation to their control.

Meanwhile, the Kheri police have confirmed the incident and tweeted that they have registered a complaint against the accused. The Kheri police said that an investigation has been initiated.

A similar incident of vandalism of Hindu temple by a Muslim mob in Delhi has shocked the people of the country. On the night of June 30, 2019, a mob had entered Durga Mata Mandir, Lal Kuan in Chandni Chowk had vandalized the idols inside. The locals had posted videos of the temple on social media that showed the Muslim mob entering the temple and thrashing Hindus residents of the neighbourhood.
