Jharkhand: Four incidents of stone-pelting on Saraswati Puja procession by Muslim mobs reported

Clashes were reported from Patna, too, when stonepelting took place on the Saraswati idol immersion procession.

Four separate incidents of attack on Hindus during the Saraswati Puja celebrations by Muslim mobs have been reported in various places of Jharkhand.

According to Jagran report, in Jharkhand’s Vidyasagar, Muslim mobs attacked Hindus who were carrying out a procession of Goddess Saraswati ahead of idol immersion. As they crossed locality dominated by Muslims, the local residents objected against Hindus playing religious songs near Karmatar area.

A clash erupted between two communities which resulted in a tense situation around the Paratol village near Karmatar. The Muslims did not let the procession move forward and carried out attacks on the procession. The police soon rushed to the spot and calmed down the situation. The Hindu groups had to stop the immersion procession, which was later carried out by police themselves.

In another incident in Kathbari village, the idol was immersed under the supervision of the police administration after a clash erupted over the issue of playing loud musing near the mosque. As the procession passed in front of the mosque, a clash erupted between the two groups.

The police showed at the spot and resorted to lathi-charging the two groups. The Hindus left the spot without immersing the idol, which was later carried out by police officials.
