DH News Service Bangalore:

The trouble erupted at about 3 pm, when news spread that an idol, at a place of worship on Seppings Road, had been defiled.

Around the same time, a few miscreants from Nehrupuram allegedly threw acid on some women, who were standing and talking near the Makkah Masjid junction on Thimmiah Road. Three KSRP policemen, who tried to intervene, suffered serious burns. Within minutes, people living in the Corporation Quarters came out and started throwing stones and petrol bombs on to the street.

In addition, Hindu Samavesha activists who were moving in procession towards their venue — Dr Ambedkar playground in Murphy Town — vented their ire by throwing stones on shops, business establishments and an educational institution along the route. The situation worsened when they passed through Tannery Road, Coles Park and Murphy Town areas. The narrow bylanes of the Thimmiaha Road, Seppings Road, Kamaraj Road bore the brunt, before the police finally managed to gather reinforcements.

police cameras missing

Police who usually capture processions and other major events on camera failed to record the riots on Sunday. The footage would have come in handy to identify the miscreants as proved in the violent incidents that followed the death of thespian Rajkumar in April last.

<b>Shame on politicians: Bangaloreans</b>?<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->New Delhi: Shame on you, politicians!

That's the message of disgust and revulsion that Bangaloreans are sending out after 72 hours of communal violence gave the Tech City a bad name. In hundreds of comments posted by IBNlive readers, who were shaken and shattered to see their loved city swept by communal hatred and mob violence in a matter of just two days, they squarely blame the politicians for turning the city into a communal flashpoint.

One reader, Merwin, best sums up the frustration among the average Bangaloreans, when he/she says: "IT capital, Greater Bangalore, cosmopolitan. These words sound so out of place when we witness the incidents that are happening today."

<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>Most Bangaloreans seem to be unanimous in their conclusion that there were political hands in turning the peaceful city into a hot spot of communal turmoil. And the Congress party and its leaders seem to bear most of the brunt of the readers' attack.</span>

<b>"Opportunistic Congress politicians like Dharam Singh, Jaffer Sharief and S Bangarappa – who dances his way from one party to another like a modern-day Nataraja – should be personally held responsible for what has happened. These politicians should be held liable for the death and destruction in Bangalore in the last few days,"</b> says T Varadaraj.

Another reader sees it as "another tactic" of politicians "to confuse people and get votes." "The Congress saga never ends. I guess the party is feeling the pinch after losing power in Bangalore and is back to its roots of confusing and dividing people to garner support," he says.

<b>"Shame to the people who are destroying the image of Bangalore by ransacking shops and burning public property. At one hand the Congress wants to be a key ally of US, while on the other hand, its own party members like Jaffer Sharief and Dharam Singh are protesting against the US," </b>he points out.

In his reaction to the sudden communal upheaval in the Tech City, Rajiv says: "All riots are instigated and manufactured for political profit. Till now, no top leader has been held to account for these. It is time this stops. The Congress and the Hindutva mobs are directly responsible for the anti-Sikh and the Gujarat riots respectively. The only difference between these leaders and the likes of Jinnah is the scale of their mischief. The day fear of law prevails on these scoundrels, riots would stop occurring. For this, we the people have to take lead. Because today the victim may be some obscure person, but tomorrow it is as well likely to be you," he argues.

Giri says people who go ahead and indulge in riots at someone's instigation "should ask their leaders to join them in the riots. A leader shouldn't just talk in a meeting, he should be out there conducting riots too," he argues.

<b>"It is disgusting to read that former chief minister attended such a rally, only to appease minorities,"</b> says Rajesh Karkera. "The ruling coalition should be blamed for giving opportunities to anti-social elements to succeed. Those who are responsible for this riot should be hanged," he demands.

Sharath also speaks in the same tune. "Politicians are the people who are playing this crappy game. They should be put behind bars."

Most readers also agree on the point that there was no need to organise such a rally in the first place. GVK, an I<b>BNlive reader, alleges that the communal tension was an attempt by Congress leader Jaffer Sharief "to show to the party high command that he is still alive."</b>

<b>"Saddam's execution took place weeks back and Indian Government very well expressed its apprehension on that. I am very sure that even Jaffer Sharief is well aware of all these, and he even knows that there is no meaning in the meeting. Just to prove his existence, he did this and managed to get the media and party attention at the cost of lives of poor people and public property. If Congress party really wants Indians to live in harmony, it has to stop encouraging this kind of politicians in the party, "</b> he writes.

<b>"There was no need for them to organise a rally which also included our ex-chief minister. It is a shame! Saddam is no way related to India,"</b> argues Satish.

Majid says some Muslims are easily exploited by some elements. "But to say that Muslims were the one who started it is unfair. The dirty politicians who had assembled in MG Raod area on Friday against US policies, included both Hindu and Muslim politicians.<b> Yes, the Muslim processionists had no business removing posters of a Hindu group. But we should rather arrest the Hindu and Muslim politicians who played this dirty vote bank politics," </b>he says.

Nathan says police are to be blamed in the first place. "They gave permission for such a rally with political motive. They don't even protect Innocent people. They are fit for nothing. Only thing these police know is to stop two-wheelers and four-wheelers and ask for bribes. Not to act pro-actively in such situations," he points out.

Rakesh Zinni says, "<b>the courts should slap multi-million rupee fines on these political leaders and put them out of business once and for all." "I bet there is a politician behind this. Just because they have power, they think they can get away with anything. I hope they are severely punished for this," </b>demands Tasmia Haroon
Ramamurthi Hari Rao also argues that organisers of such rallies should be held responsible for this.

Abdul appeals to his fellow citizens to stop joining such rallies, which are held "for silly reasons." <b>"I think people who participate in such rallies are either insane or the ones who take the opportunity like this to attack the vulnerable, loot shops and molest women."</b><!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Bangalore riots: Sharief role under cloud</b>
Pioneer News service | Bangalore
While the hand of a senior Congress politician is suspected for triggering the violence, which engulfed parts of Bangalore since Friday, the ruling BJP and Janata Dal (Secular) Government has to take the blame for failing to nip the trouble in the bud.

It all started with a rally organised by senior Congress leader and former Union Minister CK Jaffer Sharief to condemn the hanging of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

<b>It was evident that Sharief had organised the rally with a hidden agenda and it was not a spontaneous reaction to the hanging of the Iraqi leader, some three weeks ago.</b>

It was apparent that Sharief, who has been marginalised in the Congress after his defeat in the last Lok Sabha poll, wanted to resurrect himself and create a communal divide in his Bangalore North Lok Sabha constituency.

<b>The police had enough indication of the impending violence as some of the processionists were carrying weapons. However, the police had failed to deploy adequate personnel to tackle the crowds.<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'> Taking advantage of the lax security, a section of the processionists went on the rampage and targeted the homes and properties of the majority community who live in the lanes and by-lanes of the Muslim-dominated areas of Shivajinagar, Commercial Street, Bharati Nagar and Frazer Town.</b> </span>

Surprisingly, both Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy and Home Minister MP Prakash failed to visit the riot-hit areas when the eastern parts of the city were burning.

Sunday's violence was anticipated as the RSS had organised conventions at three places to mark the birth centenary of their leader Madhawa Sadashiva Golwalkar. One of the venues of the convention was near Ulsoor Lake, part of the area affected by Friday's violence.

However, the police had yet again failed to anticipate trouble when Shoba Yatras were taken out as part of the convention.

<b>The violence broke out on Sunday during the Shoba Yatra following rumours that miscreants had damaged an idol at a place of worship.

The Hindu Samavesha activists vented their ire by throwing stones at shops, business establishments and educational institutions along the route. </b>

According to reports, the police who generally take video shots of the riots, failed to record the mayhem.

This is the second major communal flare-up after the BJP-Janata Dal (Secular) assumed office nearly a year ago.

<b>Violence marred life for nearly a week some days ago in the port towns of Mangalore and Udupi. There were reports that the minority community bore the brunt of the attack</b>.

It is time the coalition Government acted with toughness against unemployed politicians and the hotheads in the Sangh Parivar. 
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Senior Congress leaders N Dharam Singh and Mallikarjuna Kharge who visited the injured at the Bowring Hospital alleged "police excesses" in the riot-hit areas. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
First they start riot and later visit hospital.

If I am right, there is new law, in case any party or organisation starts communal riots they have to pay fine and will be banned.
Why Congress is not paying fine? I want see this party should be banned and leaders involved and president should be sent to jail.

Why no midnight Cabinet meeting was held? Why this happens only for Gujarat?

<b>The Congress party organized this violence not to express sympathy for Saddam Hussain or his family but to rally the Muslims under their party banner to enlarge their sphere of political influence in a State where they are in opposition. It was clear that Jaffer Sheriff, who has been marginalised in the Congress after his defeat in the last Lok Sabha poll, wanted to resurrect himself and create a communal divide in his Bangalore North Lok Sabha constituency. It is a well known public fact that Jaffer Sheriff was the main man behind the Congress party-sponsored show of communal violence in Bangalore. Other effete Congress leaders like N Dharam Singh, K P C C president Mallikarjuna Karge and others participated at the communal meeting organized by the so called People's Front at Shivaji Nagar on 19 January, 2007. </b>

Dear Mr. Shashi Tharoor Esq.,

"Hindu revenge" started with Bhagwan Krishna telling Arjun to fight for his kingdom which was taken away from him by treachery. Even that fight could have been stopped if the Kauravas had behaved in a civilized fashion after the Pandavas had returned (I hope you know who Kaurava-Pandav are, they must be somewhere in the Hindu Doctrine you keep talking about. Genuine question, because I know what the Gita is, I know what the Puranas are, what the Upanishads are, the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Vedas are, but this Hindu Doctrine I have not read yet..sorry for my ignorance onlee. I know that there are a lot of Hindu Doctors all over the world, and are said to be the best in the medical community. Do these Hindu Doctors get to read the Hindu Doctrine free of charge?).

You call it revenge. I call it not serving tea and biscuits to people who have come to set your house on fire.

Same difference, no?

P.S. Interpreting every act of every Hindu as "revenge" when the same act occurring elsewhere in the world would be "mob reaction" must be big business, no?. LA riots were just human nature, right? But everything in India is "Hindu Revenge". <!--emo&Rolleyes--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='rolleyes.gif' /><!--endemo-->
In Aligarh, AMU students rioted and burned police vehicles. All started with a small road accident. Both sides were local muslims.

Even both were Muslims but this will trigger Hindu Muslim riots. This is very common Muslim mentality, whether its Aligarh or Bulandshar or Merrut or Delhi or Agra.

[ 24 Mar, 2007 1208hrs ISTIANS ]

JAMMU: Curfew was clamped on Saturday morning in a town in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district following clashes between members of the Hindu and Muslim communities over a piece of land.

Police had to use teargas shells to disperse the clashing groups in the border town of Mendhar, around 200 km from Jammu.

The curfew would continue on residents of Mendhar until tensions could be eased by bringing members of the two communities together to resolve the issue, a district official said.

A section of Hindus were protesting against the alleged forcible occupation of their land by a section Muslims. The latter claimed that the land was theirs.

<b>Curfew clamped after clash over Milad-un-Nabi procession</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Age-old differences between two sects of the Muslim community once again led to violence in various parts of the old city on the occasion of Eid Milad-un-Nabi on Sunday.

An angry mob belonging to a particular sect set two shops afire and damaged a shopping complex owned by a cleric in the old city. About a dozen persons were critically injured in the group clash. The injured included policemen too.

<b>Four youths also suffered bullet injuries. Condition of two of them was stated to be critical.</b>

The procession of Madh-e-Sahaba had to be stopped thrice -- at Aminabad, Medical College and near Bazar Khala police station -- to avoid any untoward incident. However, it concluded later in the evening at the Eidgaah.

Curfew was clamped on the Daulatganj area of Thakurganj, from where the violence started, and Chowk.

Laxity on part of the district administration and the police led to the violence as the officials allegedly failed to deploy adequate force taking note of past incidents.

<b>The trouble started at around 8.40 am when members of one of the sects carrying flags joined the main procession at Musahibganj locality. As they moved ahead raising slogans, people from the other sect objected to carrying of the flags, which led to a verbal dual. The groups later entered into fisticuffs and engaged in brickbatting. A few even opened fired.</b>

A free-for-all situation ensued for the next half-an-hour as there was no adequate force to tame the rioters. Station officer (SO) Thakurganj along with a few of his men initially tried to handle the situation but they had to beat a hasty retreat after the rioters pelted stones on them.
