    HYDERABAD: Two people were killed and nine injured on Wednesday when police opened fire to disperse two clashing groups in Hyderabad, police said.

    Curfew was imposed to bring the situation under control in Sikh Chowni in Kishan Bagh under the limits of Rajendernagar police station, a part of Cyberabad police commissionerate.

    Trouble broke out after miscreants attacked houses and shops of a particular community following rumours that a religious flag was burnt.

    Police opened fire to disperse the clashing groups killing two people and injuring nine, a police spokesman of Cyberabad told IANS.

    Cyberabad police commissioner C V Anand said the situation was brought under control. He appealed to people to maintain calm and cooperate with the police in restoring peace.

    As tension spread to the adjoining areas of the old city of Hyderabad, police imposed prohibitory orders. Additional police and paramilitary forces were rushed to the troubled area.

    Shopkeepers in the markets around the historic Charminar downed shutters while police stepped up patrolling.

    Personnel of Rapid Action Force (RAF) were deployed in the communally sensitive old city. Several RAF vehicles were seen moving into the interior areas as a precautionary measure.

    One person was killed and several were injured in the violence in the same area over a similar incident few years ago.

    The talk is that some MIM mullahs burned a Sikh flag and sikhs protested in return and it lead to clashes and police firing.

    Expect these type of incidents frequently in Hyderabad.

    I think Hyd. police is fairly competent to not let any riot to spread. They will nip it in the bud. Also there is significant amount of central police force presence around the old city area.

    I have heard such rumours since 1990's. MIM always wins somehow. I expect the same this time too.

    On Topic, police must have a hawk eye on all congregations where sermons are given and hate speakers must be immediately taken to task. Proving them to be stupid/degrading their stature must be done on priority. Only then will these idiots lose followers.

    Three killed in police firing after communal clashes in Hyderabad, curfew imposed

    [​IMG]
    he trouble spot is contiguous to the communally sensitive Old City localities of Hyderabad.

    Three men died in police firing following communal clashes near the Sikh Chawni locality in the Kishan Bagh area south of Hyderabad on Wednesday. Police opened fire to disperse rioting groups and imposed curfew in the entire Rajendranagar police station limits soon after to prevent the tension and violence from escalating and spreading to other areas. The trouble spot is contiguous to the communally sensitive Old City localities of Hyderabad.
    Trouble erupted after some residents of the Sikh Chawni discovered that suspected miscreants, who belong to the adjacent Muslim neighbourhood, had burnt one of their religious flags early on Wednesday. Warring groups from both sides gathered after two Muslim youth were attacked in retaliation for the burning of the flag. Police arrived as tensions deepened but even before they could pacify both groups began pelting stones at one another. Attacks on houses and arson followed. When the situation spun out of control the police opened fire to quell the rioters.

    In the violence, three persons were killed and 17 others, including ten police personnel, were injured in the pelting of stones. At least ten vehicles, cars and two wheelers, were set afire and a few shops and houses besides a video camera vehicle of the Cyberabad police was attacked even as the police struggled to contain the clashes.

    Apprehensive of the violence spreading to other areas the police imposed curfew in the Rajendranagar police station area and stepped up vigil in all sensitive areas of the Old City. Contingents of the armed police and para military forces brought to Hyderabad for election security were deployed to thwart any signs of trouble brewing in the city. Patrolling has also been stepped up in the interior areas of the Old City.

    "We are ensuring that it does not have any other and further repercussions. We are ensuring that there is peace and tranquility in the city. Patrolling vehicles are on the move to maintain law and order. We will ensure that no further incidents taken place," said the Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anurag Sharma.

    Victims of the mayhem alleged that the assailants armed with swords and knives entered their houses and attacked them. They alleged police opened fire without using teargas or batons. Some of the trouble makers were taken into custody, police pickets have been set up and certain areas barricaded to prevent spread of violence. "The police did precious little to contain and put an end to the violence in a systematic manner. Instead it resorted to a knee jerk reaction - firing on the rioters," complained the All India Majlis - e - Ittehadul Muslimeen president Asaduddin Owaisi.

    The police have a different version of the developments. "Around 1,000 members from both sides indulged in clashes. As lathi- charge proved ineffective, police warned the clashing groups and opened fire. Curfew has been imposed indefinitely and Section 144 Crpc banning the assembly of four or more persons clamped in Rajendranagar police state area under Cyberabad Police Commissionerate," explained a senior police official. By dusk, tension had not eased though stepped up security ensured that the situation was under control.

    Tension between the Deccani Sikhs and the Muslims living in the area is not new. In 2006, one person was killed and several injured in a similar communal clash.

    Three killed in police firing after communal clashes in Hyderabad, curfew imposed : South, News - India Today

    ***************************************************

    I love the political correctness of the Indian media.

    This magazine has thrown in the word "Sikh" very inconspicuously and never clearly indicated the communities involved, though it leaves no doubt that Muslims have died and thereby indicating obliquely that Muslims were involved. The statement that 'suspected miscreants, who belong to the adjacent Muslim neighbourhood, in no way with credence establish that it is the Muslims who did it.

    The TELEGRAPH is more disingenuous since they obfuscate with the term that is used for Hindu Muslim clashes - two communities.

    In fact, I remained confused till I read TOI

    Interestingly,

    It maybe recollected that Dal Khalsa is a political organization of the Sikh nation, based in the city of Amritsar (Punjab). The primary aim of Dal Khalsa is to achieve the independence of the Punjabi-speaking Sikh majority region of North West India through peaceful and democratic means in order to establish a sovereign Sikh state, Khalistan.

    It is time to for all Indians to catch the bull by the horns and be honest to ourselves and our conscience.

    We must see reality and not be coy and cute and indulge in pious platitudes.

    OK, so here's what I gathered after interacting with some influential people that serve in south-Hyderabad:
    • A group of delinquent Muslim youth pulled down and burnt the blue flag of a Gurudwara in the wee hours of morning on Wednesday, ahead of the morning prayers
    • It enraged the Sikhs offering prayers there, who pulled out swords and went on a hack-slash against the group.
    • Muslims got reinforcements
    • Sikhs called up their homies from Nanded (an Intercity Express train for Kacheguda leaves H.S. Nanded in every morning, reaches by brunch-time).
    • Dishoom-dishoom
    • RAF - CRPF - state police deployment, and curfew in those areas.
    Various law enforcement agencies have been anticipating trouble ahead of the 16th in Hyderabad, because:
    • Election counting day, Modi front-runner
    • BJP's Bhagwanth Rao could pull off an upset against Asaduddin Owaisi
    • It's a Friday (Jumu'ah)
    • TRS could dump MIM for NDA to form state-government, because MIM is demanding deputy CM's post, NDA is offering support without any portfolio demands, in exchange for TRS support in Lok Sabha.
    Quite an explosive mixture, that.

    Where religion is concerned, the Sikhs take it seriously.

    But I don't understand the reason as to why do such a thing as take a religious flag down for no good reason.

    Asking for trouble where none exists.

    This burning flag of Sikhs by Muslims seems strange.There is a big smell of Politics here... easiest thing to start a riot is doing these things.

    Throw a pork head in Mosque or Cow head in Temple or burn flags or "Koran" and while doing this wear a skull cap or tika on forehead or turban to conspire is not a new thing.

    Something is fishy... I guess Muslims and Sikhs generally won't mess up with each other so there is a smell of some conspiracy so Muslims and Sikhs fight each other. This news coming in election time is again interesting.

    There should be some proper investigation.

    Maybe a ploy of Congress secularists to ferment trouble just when Modi is taking over.

    Possible and no surprise if they do since their track record proves it.

    Congress is the real communal party when it comes to riots and hides behind the so called "Secularism".
    Congress did riots against Sikhs in 84 and silent on Mujaffarnagar riots where Muslims killed.

    Congress is extremely desperate and can do anything for power even if it means doing riots where people (specially minorities) are killed.

    That is right.

    But what could be the reason that encouraged the Muslims to burn the religious flag?

    Difficult to say since Muslims usually don't mess around with Sikhs and Sikhs are usually neutral/friendly towards Muslims. As a fact @Singh is even pro-muslim.

    I have heard for the first time if Muslims burnt a Sikh flag in recent times. Sikhs are not known to take this type of insult lightly and their famous friendliness takes 1 sec to turn into aggression.

    I hope situation is diffused and the real reason comes out. The last thing we want is both communities becoming fodder for bloody cheap Politics for which our Politicians are known for(specially Communal Congress).

    Why should the Congress be behind this?

    What do they gain?

    That way, Sikhs do not go out of the way to take on any other religion. It is only when provoked that they get real violent.

    I fail to find any reason for either the Sikhs or the Muslims wilfully aggravating the situation and organising a clash.

    I am confused with this very odd thing happening.
