Muslim Islamic NewsFocus: Communal riots

Communal Clash in Agra

The Milli Gazette Online

Agra: Communal Tension and riot-like situation arose in Agra on 23 October. Such a situation arose when a Muslim woman in burqa had gone to Raj Kumar Cloth House, a shop in Agra’s Subhash Bazar. The shop keeper suspected the woman of having stolen some cloth and raised an alarm. Neighbouring shop keepers assembled at Raj Kumar Cloth House and there were exchange of hot words between the woman and the shop owner who insisted searching her bag. Shop keepers claimed that the woman’s bag was searched and cloth was found but the woman denied it. The woman is alleged to have slapped the shop owner and the shop keeper is alleged to have molested her.

The woman reached home and narrated the incident to family members. At this, the enraged youths of the nearby Mantola locality assembled at the shop and started pelting stones. People of the other community also assembled there and there was stoning from both sides for about half an hour. Police rushed in and fired in the air to scare the crowd. Shop keepers pulled their shutters for fear of a communal riot. The situation there and in neighbouring areas was like an undeclared curfew. 

However, there were minor clashes but no communal riots erupted. No arrests were also made and according to police sources, situation is fully under control but strict vigil is being maintained. (Rashtriya Sahara, October 24, 2005) «
