    Muslims flee as communal violence scorches UP village

    A large number of members of the minority community are uneasy about returning to their homes in Asthan village in Pratapgarh district of Uttar Pradesh, from where they had to flee 10 days ago following violent communal clashes over the rape of a Dalit girl.

    Violence had rocked the village, located nearly 150 km from Lucknow, after the 13-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly gangraped and murdered by four Muslim boys from the same village.

    In the communal flare-up following the incident, houses and shops belonging to the Muslim community were burnt down by an angry mob after local authorities failed to initiate any action against the accused.

    No effort was made by district authorities to get a post-mortem done on the victim.

    The disturbance started when the victim's family and other villagers decided to take the funeral procession through the Muslim locality.

    Most families, terrorised by the violence, have chosen to leave the village in search of a safer haven. The administration has deployed armed personnel in the village but this has failed to restore their confidence.

    "We would have returned by now, but it appears that visits by leaders of different political parties have been responsible for raising the tension once again. We are scared to go back to Asthan," a villager told Azam Ansari, a resident of Pariyavan village, four km away from Asthan.

    Ansari told this scribe over the telephone, "I myself tried persuading some of the Asthan people to return to home, but they are still terrified after what they have gone through".

    The issue has also come up in the state assembly, where Parliamentary Affairs and Urban Development Minister Azam Khan has drawn much flak over it. He chose to use offence as the best form of defence by reminding Opposition Bahujan Samaj Party of the incidents of rape and communal clashes that took place during Mayawati's regime.

    He claimed, "Action had already been ordered by the state government and nearly a dozen people have already been taken into custody."

    He added, "It was to send a positive message that we ordered the suspension of both the district magistrate and superintendent of police; the new team is taking effective steps to rebuild the confidence of the people."

    Congress leader Pramod Tiwari demanded a judicial probe into the incident. He also demanded higher compensation for the victims, who were given an ex-gratia payment of Rs 50,000 as their homes were razed during the violence.

    No mention was made about whether any compensation had been offered to the family of the rape victim.

  3. The whole episode serves the Samajwadi Party's purpose of alienating the Dalit community from the rest
    it should be known , that in UP traditionally The Dalits enjoy a good rapport with Muslims ....

    Alienating them by portraying them as aggressor weakens the Opposite party's Vote Bank ...

    UP is blessed with such cheap politicians !

    I recently met the man who started it all. This is well planned and executed. Those who think that it is spontaneous reaction will be surprised to know that the whole carnage is political in nature and SP is waiting to milk the situation.

    Dastardly act of rape has to be condemned, but why the eff was it converted into a communal violence? Certainly smacks of political mischief.

  8. The Muslims are the floating votes of UP .....
    though they are generally inclined to go with SP ....still BSP is able to make inlays into them

    Dalits are generally BSP loyalists ....and otherwise friendly with Muslims..
    now Dalit is a vote bank hardest for any other party to crack ...

    So the strategy for SP is to alienate the Dalits , cutting them off from other communities
    thereby isolating and thinning the BSP votebank which otherwise also benefits from the floating Muslim Votes....

    by not prosecuting the original perpetrators of Rape crime ,
    you effectively force the Dalits to resort to Violence ....
    thus making them the aggressors ...

    and By Pitching Dalits against everybody else , you Polarise the Votes into BSP - Anti BSP
    and Anti BSP in Up means just one thing .......SP

    as we have already seen in recently held assembly elections in UP

    They will not act, they will let the villages burn. Then they will show their "Secular" face to woo the Muslims. SP will ward off the "communal forces" and save the day.

    No wonder UP is such a sh**hole and will be until this kind of destructive politics continues. Instead of improving agriculture, industry, education, health services, etc SP-BSP governments are engaged in corruption and casteist politics.

    Raju Bhaiyya, the notorious gangster and now Jail Minister of UP, is from Pratapgarh.

    His writ is Absolute out there.

    More than anything else, it is politics at work.

    SP vs BSP and in turn Congress, which is secular and would have to assuage the Muslim sentiment and would thus margilise the others!

    While SP and BSP caste divide is legend. It is the aim to show that Congress stands for Muslims alone. This obviously would be a body blow since UP is intensely backward swamp of communal and casteist divide!

    All tricks are on the table to ensure that the Congress is a spent force and no thanks to Rahul Gandhi and Diggyman.

    He who controls UP, controls India.

    A way to ensure that the Congress remains lame duck and beholden to 'outside' support if they want to remain in power!

    It was done to embarrass the Congress, apart from the usual BSP SP stupidity.

    Have you been to Pratapgarh and seen the scene of political schisms?

    Communal tension flared up in Pratapgarh following rape and murder of Dalit girl

    Communal tension flared up in Pratapgarh following rape and murder of a 11-year-old Dalit girl who was kidnapped three days back. The agitated family members of the victim and local villagers attacked the houses of the accused and their neighbours with stones and reportedly set ablaze about 15 houses along with their belongings on Saturday afternoon.

    The situation could be only brought under control after heavy police rushed along with IG Zone & DIG range of Allahabad, SP and District Magistrate both of Pratapgarh. Senior officers were still camping in the area to avert any further clash. One company of Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) was also deployed to assist the local police.

    Reports said that Rekha, a native of Nawabganj in Pratapgarh went missing on last Wednesday. Her body was recovered after two days on Friday from a near by jungle and the post-mortem examination reportedly established that she was gang raped before being murdered. Rekha's father Ram Sajeewan lodged a case in this connection against Imran, Farhan, Tausif, Saif Ali, all residents of the same area. The matter took an ugly turn when after the autopsy was completed, the family members and villagers were taking the body to for burial on Saturday afternoon.

    Reports said that when they were crossing from the village of the accused, the family members and their neighbours got agitated and they kept the body and attacked the houses. They first pelted stones and after the other party reacted, the agitated crowd set their houses on fire. The local police which was out numbered by the trouble makers later summoned additional force but still it took more than five hours to defuse the situation. The fire tenders also doused the fire. Later in presence of police force, the burial of the body of the victim was also performed.

    Meanwhile a teenage lovers reportedly committed suicide after jumping before a train in Hardoi while three persons which included two females were crushed to death after coming under the wheels of speeding train in Ramabainagar (Kanpur Dehat) on early Saturday morning.

    In Hardoi, Pramod, a resident of Nardhealsingh Ka Purwa in Sursa locality was having affair with his neighbourhood girl identified as Roshni. The family members of both the teenagers were against their affair and recently when the duo informed their parents that they were going to enter into wedding lock, the family members stopped them forcibly from meeting each other. Upset with their parents move, both Pramod and Roshni reportedly managed to slip out of their houses in the wee hours of Saturday. The family members when went to search them were shocked to recovered the bodies of the duo from the railway tracks. The local police send the bodies were post-mortem examination and were probing the matter.

    In Ramabainagar, 45-year-old Pushpa, a resident of Sheeshamau in Kanpur along with her 15-year-old son Himanshu and one kin identified as Shakuntala (50), hailing from Devpur in Unnao, all were returning from a marriage party organised at Ramabainagar in the early hours of Saturday. When they were crossing track at Roora Railway Station, all the three came under the wheels of speeding train and were crushed to death. The local police which rushed to the spot registered a case and send the body for autopsy test. The family members of the victims were also informed of the incident.

    I think, SP themselves want Muslims to live under fear. So that, They will take some cosmetic steps to provide some security before 2014 election. SP will try to prove that they are the only Messiah of Muslims. Like lalu did in late 90's.

    BSP won in 2007 state election (210/403) but lost 2009 general election. It was at 3rd number and little ahead than BJP+LD alliance by only 4 seats. Winning Assembly election doesn't mean, One will win parliament election. No Party won 40 out of 80 seats in UP in last 2 decades except BJP twice in 90's.

    Since, There is no relation between development and SP. Thus, Only caste and religion based politics is the solution. This is the only way SP can win 30 odd seats out of 80.

    Pratapgarh is no walkover.

    The Congress has a reckonable presence.

    Classic. Political games played by someone and repercussion is borne by an entire community.

    Isn't that the story all over?

    And isn't it true the fool communities fall prey to the lies of politicians and religious leaders of both sides.

    There is a Chinese proverb - when big fish fight, little fish eaten!

    Is there any hatred amongst the communities in daily life? No.

    It is inflamed by vested interests!

    I saw the Big Fight today on the President given pardon as if a dam has burst.

    You should have heard Colim Gonzales and other chap Dayal.

    They oozed compassion!

    As if the victims had no right to live!

    Politics and religion!

    Two bane of our nation!

    And that fool man Colin assured that the chap who killed will not be released to return to kill the members of the family who were not killed!

    As if Colin is in direct contact with God!

    Fool.

    How did Yadav keep roaming free when he was jailed for life?
