Bijnor: Muslim youths break Goddess Bhavani idol after entering temple pretending to be Hindus

During interrogation, the youths revealed that they had changed their names to hide their identity.

The UP police have arrested two Muslim youths for vandalising a Hanuman temple and breaking the Goddess Bhavani’s idol in Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh.


As per reports, on Wednesday, around 9.30 am the two Muslim youths entered the Panchmukhi Hanuman temple and asked the priest to put tilak on their foreheads. After roaming around for some time they pelted stones at the Bhavani Mata’s idol and vandalised it using sticks and stones.

City Kotwal RC Sharma revealed that one of the accused named Rashid son of Adil is a resident of Mohalla Mirdagan and the other accused is Yasin, son of Shadab, is a resident of Mohalla Kassabian in Bijnor district, Uttar Pradesh.

The committee officials and devotees accused Rashid and Yasin of breaking the idol and started beating them up. Several police officials, including SP Sanjeev Tyagi, SP City Laxmi Niwas Mishra, SDM Sadar Brajesh Kumar and CO City Arun Kumar, after getting the information rushed to the spot.

Assuring that strict action would be taken against the miscreants the officers pacified the mob and arrested the two accused. They were then taken to Haldaur police station where they were interrogated for four hours.

Many people belonging to different Hindu organisations reached the police station and demanded prompt action.

During interrogation, the youths revealed that they had changed their names to hide their identity. The police revealed that the two youths were accompanied by two girls who are believed to be school students. As per the reports, the temple committee has informed the police that the youths were regular visitors to the temple and put on the ‘tika’.
