Muslim Islamic NewsIndia: Police attacks peaceful rally protesting Hindutva miscreants

10 July 2009

The Milli Gazette

Mysore: Trouble in Mysore, Karnataka state, started at 6 am on 2 July 2009 when Haleema Saadia Masjid/Madrasa at Udayagiri in Mysore was desecrated by Hindutva miscreants. In the morning Muslims of the locality gathered near the Mosque after knowing about the incident. As in past, this incident was purposely carried out to provocate the Muslims, but the cadres of Popular Front of India (PFI) were successful to control the crowd. As the plans of the Sangh Parivar to incite violence failed, they resorted to attack a Muslim youth who was killed in the attack. The situation got worse when a 13-year-old Muslim boy called Junaid Pasha was killed in Police firing. Later another men named Tirupathi who hailed from Andhra Pradesh was attacked and killed by the Sangh Parivar who mistaken him to be Muslim because he spoke Hindi. Throughout the crisis, the Local MP, District Commissioner and Police officers were in regular touch with PFI district leadership seeking help to control the situation. Popular Front activists carried out field work to control the situation, the District President personally led a Vehicle announcement in the Muslims areas to ensure calm in the area.

Police attacks peaceful rally protesting Hindutva miscreantsOn 4 July the BJP called for Mysore Bandh in reaction to the attack on BJP Youth Morcha district president. There were not incidents reported during the Bandh. Next day, after the constant efforts of PFI the situation was brought under control and peace was restored in Mysore. The District Commissioner praised PFI for its role in bringing peace to the town. Later it was the State Home Minister who is renowned as a hardcore Hindutva fascist personally interfered in the issue and pressurized the Police to arrest PFI cadres. Police carried out raid at the residence of PFI cadres and a few cadres were arrested. The District Commissioner was in constant touch with PFI district president and asked him to get arrested as he could not resist the pressure from the Home Minister. On 6 July when PFI Mysore district leaders were coming out of the Mysore Journalist Association after addressing a press conference, the Police arrested 15 PFI cadres along with the District President. Later on 6th night the District office was raided without any notice and later sealed. Even the people who went to the court to give surety for the arrested cadres were arrested inside the court premises. The Police even filed cases against the Haleema Saadia Mosque committee officials accusing that they informed PFI front leaders about the mosque desecration incident.

The whole crisis which began due to the desecration of the Masjid was converted into an offensive against PFI. It is the incapability of the police to arrest the real culprits and they are hiding their failure by arresting and harassing PFI cadres and innocent citizens of Mysore. Till 10 July, 210 innocents people from both the communities who were not at all involved in the incident were arrested, while the original culprits roam about freely.

To protest against the injustice on innocent citizens of Mysore a "Jail Bharo" andolan was held in Mysore on 9 July afternoon. The peaceful protest was carried out demanding the release of more than 210 innocent people arrested in the communal clashes in Mysore. The people were sitting peacefully and were arrested in batches. The assembly was at Fountain Circle and the venue was completely jam-packed with protesters. Approximately 3 batches of protesters were arrested before the local women of Mysore marched in to join the protest and were also surrendering for voluntary arrest.

The police realized that the mob was far greater than they could arrest and secure in their jail. The police then resorted to lathi charge which created a stampede and there was rampant tear gas firing. Even such a brutal attack could not defeat the firm will of the protesters to get justice and they challenged the Police force by staying firm in their position and demanded to be arrested. The brutal use of police machinery continued for three hours. Many protestors were severely wounded and hospitalized.

The state leaders of popular Front of India including the President K. Abdul Latheef, and the General Secretary Afsar Pasha were among the first to be arrested and still not released. Later on after the crowd dispersed the leaders along with other social activists were in talks with the commissioner negotiating the release of all the innocent people who had been illegally detained and also pressuring their demand for the quick arrest of the real culprits who incited the trouble by their dastardly act of desecrating a place of worship.
