Blasts in Saharanpur

Two bomb blasts took place almost simultaneously one after the other in the north Indian town of Saharanpur’s Mangloo Wali Masjid early morning May 13, according to reports reaching here. One bomb exploded on the roof of the mosque while the other explosion took place near the gate of the mosque, resulting in damage to the door, tiles and outer walls of the mosque. 

A third, unexploded, time bomb was also discovered near the entrance to the mosque which was fitted with battery, wire and a timing device. The first bomb exploded minutes before the Fajr prayers while the third one, which was diffused, was meant to explode just after the prayers when people would be leaving the mosque. 

According to a local explosive expert, the defused bomb was a very powerful device and had it gone off, enormous loss of life could have been caused. However, immediately after its discovery, it was defused by experts who rushed to the area with the police.

Though no injury or loss of life was caused by the two bomb blasts in the mosque, these are alarming incidents. This is the fourth such incident against mosques and madrasahs in the town of Saharanpur during the past four months from January 28. Some threatening leaflets were also found near the diffused bomb which explained the aim of the saboteurs: to make India a Hindu ‘Rashtra’ (state), setting up ‘Akhand Bharat’ ('Greater India' including Pakistan and Bangladesh) and to teach Muslims a lesson. An unknown organization, Arya Sena (Aryan Army), has owned up responsibility for these pamphlets and bombs. 

Top civil officials of the city reached the spot on receiving the news of the bomb blasts. The consensus is that whosoever is behind these blasts, the intention is to create communal tension and spoil the peaceful atmosphere. There is a wave of anger among the residents who have demanded the district authorities to apprehend the culprits within 24 hours. Incidentally, it may be mentioned that Saharanpur is the electoral district of Uttar Pradesh state’s new chief minister, Ms Mayawati.

In a related incident, communal riot erupted May 12 in Nandarbar town in Maharashtra state in which two people were killed and 17 injured. A small altercation developed into a Hindu-Muslim clash in which mobs attacked each other and burnt houses and shops. Police resorted to firing and one of the casualties was killed in police firing. 15 persons have been arrested. Curfew has been imposed in the region. Authorities said that this violence is not connected with Gujarat which shares borders with Maharashtra.
