Muslim Islamic NewsThree Muslims killed over cow rumour

The Milli Gazette Online

7 November 2005

New Delhi: A Hindu mob attacked a Muslim village east of Lucknow, capital of Uttar Pradesh, torching homes and killing three people, after hearing rumors that cows, considered holy by Hindus, were slaughtered for Islamic celebrations, police said on 6 November but the Indian media by and large ignored this incident reported by the Associated Press on 7 November. 

Hindus from neighboring areas attacked Mehndipur village in the northern Uttar Pradesh state on Saturday night and set fire to dozens of houses after being told villagers had killed cows for a feast to mark Eid-al-Fitr, the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the day before, said S. B. Shirodkar, a local police chief. 

Three Muslims died and more than 40 houses were torched, Shirodkar said. He said a police investigation revealed no cow had been slaughtered in the village. 

Authorities deployed paramilitary forces in and around Mehndipur, about 20 miles east of the state capital, Lucknow. Uttar Pradesh is India's most populous state, and about 20 percent of its 180 million people are Muslims.
