M-Y axis in danger in Laloo Land
|It is a repeat of the massacre of Muslims in Ranchi district, Bihar, when around a dozen Muslims were butchered by the
MCC, the Maoist outfit which has created a wave of terror in the whole of Bihar. As a sequel to that slaughter five more Muslims were butchered in Tahira a village in Siwan district.
It was an unprecedented move in this part of the world. Five Muslims, three of them minors, were slaughtered in the village in Siwan district which borders
Patna, the state capital. Independent reports emanating from the place put the toll at seven but the police has confirmed only five deaths. The attackers numbering around 20 swooped down on the village after 8pm on 16 October. Five persons from two families were brought out of their residences and hacked to death. Those killed were named as Muhammad
Hadis, Rahman Mian, Rustam Ansari, Qayyum alias Muslim and Afroz. This village is hardly seven kilometers away from Mojahidpur where 11 Yadavs were slaughtered in the early hours of 11 October. According to the police the attackers came from neighbouring villages.
The CPI (ML) has attributed the killings to the on-going war of supremacy between the gangs of Satish Pandey and
Shahabuddin, the local RJD member of Parliament. A member of CPI (ML) politburo, Nand Kishore
Prasad, said that, 'Satish Pandey is out and out a BJP man who is vitiating the atmosphere of the district.' Pandey unsuccessfully fought the assembly elections on Samata Party ticket last February. It should be recalled that about two dozen people have lost their lives in gang war in Siwan district since the first week of September when Chotay Khan was looted by some miscreants. Latest killings were a slap on the face of the police even as the state government deployed heavy central paramilitary forces under the supervision of three SPs in the district.
The ruling RJD president Laloo Prasad Yadav has visited the area since then. A galaxy of other leaders have also descended upon the hapless village. This incident is very significant for the RJD supremo as it is being seen as a well laid out plan to distance Muslims and Yadav whose unity is the basis of Laloo Yadav government in Bihar. The
Muslim-Yadav, more precisely M-Y axis, has ensured the continuance of RJD government in the power for a long time. If this axis collapses Laloo Yadav's party will not be able to retain power in the state even for long. Laloo Yadav knows this fact so he visited both the sites where the carnage took place.q
