In a village called Sangthu in Bihar’s Jamui district, Hindu devotees participating in a procession celebrating the Ayodhya Shri Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha were attacked by Islamists. The issue arose when people from the Muslim community obstructed the devotees participating in the Shobha Yatra, leading to a clash between the two groups. The police were informed and managed to control the situation, but not before some people suffered minor injuries, and a bike and a DJ were damaged in the violence.
To prevent any further problems, a significant number of police officers were sent to the village. This incident has caused tension in Sangthu, which has a history of clashes between Hindus and Muslims. Despite previous precautions, the district administration took an attempt to disrupt communal harmony that occurred during Monday’s procession.
Three individuals named Chinku Kumar, Amit Kumar Kushwaha, and Sunny Kumar, who were part of the procession, were seriously injured. According to villagers, Muslim community members were playing cricket and preventing the tying of flags on poles, along with playing loud music on the day of Ramlala’s Pran Pratishtha. When Hindu devotees objected, they were blocked by the Islamists. The villagers stated that when the police arrived, instead of taking action against the troublemakers, they chased away Hindu devotees.
DSP Abhishek Kumar Singh stated that the police were deployed in the village due to a ‘minor clash’ between the two communities. The police are closely monitoring the situation to control the tension in the village. Villagers are being urged to remain calm and maintain communal harmony.
