Jharkhand: Tearing up of Lord Hanuman flag at Chhath ghat sparks off communal tension, 3 Muslim youth arrested

The police has asserted that reconciliation between the two warring factions could have struck but it could not happen due to some radical fundamentalists, who did not want the antagonism between the two parties to end.

Communal tension prevailed in Girodih’s Narayan Singhdih village in Jharkhand after some miscreants reportedly uprooted and tore off Lord Hanuman’s flag placed at Chhath Ghat. The angry villagers filed a complaint with the police following which three boys were arrested. The police have booked three individuals, Salamat Raza, Izamul Haq and Wasid Ansari, on the charges of hurting the religious sentiments of people.

Apart from these, Shoaib Ansari, Tanveer Ansari, Shamimullah, Sarafat Ansari and Budhan Ansari are listed by police as accused in the case. Ravindra Kumar Verma, representing agitated villagers, filed an FIR against 11 miscreants of Kasiotol for allegedly ripping apart a religious flag and affronting the religious sentiments of the followers.

According to the reports, following the completion of Chhath festival on Sunday(November 3, 2019), the accused pulled out and ripped up the flag on the ghat, flaring up tensions between the two communities. There was an attempt made by the police to settle the matter between the two sides but the tensions did not subside. All the efforts of the police to placate the soaring tensions in this case have so far gone in vain.
