Rajasthan Police have detained 11 Muslim youths for pelting stones at the Hindu Ranbheri bike rally which was being taken out in Jaipur Rural on last Sunday, March 26.
The state government has seemingly deployed police force to provide security for the rally, but they failed to control the mob, as was evident from video footage that emerged. Soon, an additional police force was called and the Muslim stone pelters were chased away and 11 of the them were arrested.
The stone pelting occurred when the rally reached Tala village of Raiser area of Jamwa Ramgarh on the occasion of Hindu New Year.
The Hindu Ranbheri bike rally started from Khel Maidan Chandwaji at around 10.15 a.m. on Sunday and passed through different areas. However, around 3 p.m., some miscreants pelted stones near Tala Johra of Raiser police station area. A case has been registered at Raiser police station by Sadhuram Jat who was present in the rally.
Meanwhile, the Rajasthan BJP has protested against this incident. BJP’s MP Colonel Rajyavardhan Rathore tweeted a video of the incident and raised questions on the functioning of the Congress government.
He said that, “Hindu rally attacked in Jaipur’s Jamva Ramgarh today. PFI terrorist mentality has flourished under Congress rule. This government also shows leniency on those who pelt stones and violence on the events of the Hindu community. These incidents are the result of this appeasement. The administration should act promptly against such madrassas and miscreants.”
The video shows that many of the skull-cap wearing stone pelters appear to be teens, and there is a high probability that they were mobilized by some local madrasa/Jamaat body. Such brazen acts of mob violence in presence of police do not appear possible without collusion of local administration.
BJP MLA and party spokesperson Ramlal Sharma attacked the Congress government over the anti-Hindu violence in Jaipur district.
He said, “There was a sudden attack on the saffron rally by people of a particular community which pelted stones after which the police arrested 11 people. Out of those 11 people, there are many people who are suspicious and are not residents of the village or even from nearby villages. This indicates that this attack has been done in a planned way by the people of the particular community. Bharatiya Janata Party demands action as this is not the first incident in Rajasthan, such incidents have happened at many places in the state due to the promotion of appeasement politics after the Congress government came to power.”
“Police need to take strict action to curb these incidents and if strict action is not taken then it is difficult to curb these incidents. That’s why the government should take action against the culprits soon. Police are trying to register cases against innocent people, if police register cases against innocent people in this way, then Bharatiya Janata Party is not going to keep quiet,” he added.
Islamists resort to usual tricks, shouted ‘Islamophobia’
Meanwhile, the Islamic radicals did what they are known for, using any possible opportunity to play their victim card and shout ‘Islamophobia’. Here an Islamic news portal Millat Times and Radio Mirchi RJ Sayema, who was shockingly endorsed by the US Embassy in India recently as a ‘trailblazer and positive change maker’, tweeted about this issue, and they portrayed it as if Hindus were the ones who attacked the Muslims.
However, arrests made by Rajasthan Police, witness statements and the video evidence destroyed this Islamist propaganda. At the same time, many eyewitnesses who were participating in this rally confirmed that when the cops and the people in the rally tried to stop the attackers from stone pelting, it only emboldened them more. Multiple people stated that despite the provocation, the participants in the rally didn’t react and moved ahead peacefully.
