Telangana: Gandhi statue vandalised, pro-Pakistan slogans written in Nizamabad

The miscreants had blackened the Gandhi statue and had garlanded it with a paper with pro-Pakistan slogans written on it.

In a shocking incident in Nizamabad district of Telangana, a statue of Mahatma Gandhi has been desecrated by painting it black and garlanding it with a paper written with slogans denouncing India and hailing Pakistan on Sunday by some unidentified persons.

According to a report in The Hindu, the incident took place at Gundaram village of Nizamabad district when unidentified assailants blackened Gandhi statue and hung a paper on the statue with pro-Pakistan slogans written on it.

Reportedly, the police officials suspect that a newly emerged outfit belonging to a ‘particular community’ is behind the attack on the statue. The outfit had undertaken activities in the name of educating poor children and imparting awareness on fitness in certain minority areas in the district.

Recently, the police had arrested three persons belonging to this group on the complaint of municipal authorities that they had built illegal sheds to carrying out their activities.

According to the report in The Hindu, Circle Inspector of Police R Raghu said the police rushed to the village, located a few km away from the district headquarters Nizamabad and launched an investigation to identify the culprits.

“We are probing whether the outfit which was mentioned earlier has any connection with the defacing of the Gandhi statue. It is a serious issue and hence inquiry is being done from all angles,” he said.

OpIndia had reached out to Nizamabad police station but the police officials were reluctant to provide any information regarding the accused of the desecration incident. We shall update the report once we get a response from the Nizamabad rural police.
