Communal tension and riots
By NA Ansari

Communal riots and tension gripped different parts of the country within a couple of days. At least five persons were killed on 4 January in Marad Coastal areas near Kozhikode (Kerala) and around 20 injured in communal riots who have been admitted in differents hospitals with stab wounds. Condition of five of the injured persons was reported to be serious. Several houses, shops and boats were also set on fire, shoot-at-sight orders were issued and services of Rapid Action Force (RAF) and CRPF personnel were requisitioned to cope with the situation. Clashes started on 3 January night over a minor issue but took a serious turn the next day.

Communal clashes also took place on 4 Jan. in Karnataka's Uttar Kannad district on minor grounds leading to cases of stone-pelting, police lathi charge, arrest of seventeen persons, tense atmosphere in the affected area and imposition of prohibitory orders and section 144. The Eidgah in Phooph town in Bhind district was attacked, wall demolished and other damage inflicted on 30 December. Prohibitory orders under Section 144 were enforced to contain tension. 

Communal tension also prevailed in Lakshman Garh of District Sikar in Rajasthan on 4 Jan. as a result of desecration of a religious place of worship. According to reports, a group of miscreants entered a temple of this village and broke three idols which resulted in clashes, communal tension and promulgation of prohibitory orders. Rajasthan Armed Constabulary has been posted in the affected area. A mosque gate was burnt in Sikar district on 7 Jan. All these incidents took place in a couple of days only and tension continues in all these areas.
