Fanatic Hindu rioters entering Jammu as Yatris: Report
Srinagar, August 13 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Muslims in Jammu have revealed that hundreds of Hindu rioters from outside the territory have entered city as Hindu Yatris to fan anti-Muslim violence on a large scale.
A Muslim cleric in a media interview in Jammu said, “We have informed the authorities about this development and demanded an immediate crackdown on them”.
“We have proofs that at least five hundred rioters are staying with BJP, RSS and VHP leaders and it is they who are attacking our Masjids in Jammu. They must be identified and thrown out from the city,” one of the Jammu Muslims said.
A senior police official said after receiving inputs the police have sealed Lakhanpur entry-point.
A local news agency quoting a top official said some Hindu fanatic leaders had provided accommodation to these rioters in their houses and party offices.
“These rioters are acting as Amarnath and Vishno Devi pilgrims. They stay in tents meant for Yatris and it becomes very difficult for the authorities to differentiate between real Yatri’s and rioters,” the official added.
Meanwhile, the head of Ulema-e-Ahnaf, Maulana Ahdar Hussain in a statement said that saffron brigade was involved in the violence in Jammu and the same brigade had a hand in the Kishtwar incident which took place on Eid.
