Hindu, Muslim Clashes In India: 28 killed, Army deployed

Indian army soldiers have been deployed in Muzaffarnagar in northern Uttar Pradesh state after 28 people were killed in religious clashes, several villages are under curfew after violence between Hindus and Muslims, the BBC reported.

According to the BBC, the clashes were sparked by the killing of three men after they protested against the alleged harassment of a local woman. Later the circulation of a fake video showing two men being lynched led to more violence, which spread to neighbouring villages in the district.

    If 28 Muslims or Tamils were killed in Srilanka,our poor inhabitants would have already had a cruise missile attack, and the UN troops would be arriving in a couple of days.

    Say no more about the do gooder brigades who are hellbent on removing the Terrorism Protection regualtions.and sending Army back to the barracks.

          In SL Tamils kill Tamils in tens of thousands! :)

          e.g. TMVP verses LTTE
          e.g. EPDP verses LTTE
          e.g. IPKF verses LTTE

          Why did the fun stop?

        you wrong. the riots took place only within the city limit of Muzaffarnagar, a city in Uttar Pradesh. And it didn’t spread at least to the whole Muzaffarnagar district. The total population of the city is only 494,792. Therefore it must be 28 out of 494,792 instead of 28 out of 1,000,000,000. the population of the whole district is 3.5 million and it is evident that the riots didn’t spread into the rest of the district since the curfew was imposed only in the city. the death toll is big. this is the difference between sri lanka and india. although the world media love to label sri lankans are barbarians, the reality is that our riots are usually brawls rather than real riots, when they are compared with those of india.

    Muslims have built a mosque even near the Area of Buddha was born. Muslims or Christians simply don’t have respects for other religions.They think only they should run the world.

      You have a childish mentality. You don’t believe that Mosques, Temples, Church and Kovil are all places of religious worship. Not houses of terror, brothel, gambling or liquor bars. It is a place where people go to benefit spiritually, and to be in peace and tranquility with oneself, peace of mind and for religious worship. What you have is a paranoia and pure jealousy that you cannot bear to see other communities prosper, stay united and socialize within a vibrant community. You are panic stricken, always feeling threatened your race will get wiped out, even whilst enjoying more than 70 percent majority advantage, a real phobia to contend with. Your people are so poor that they can be bought like commodities, by offer of rice packet, a tipple or a 500 buck note, and then even the CJ of the country is unsafe. Highest income earners for the country, hard earned income of our women in the slave trade in ME countries, taxes earned on sale of millions of litres of liquor and from tobacco industries. The shameless crimes committed by those in authority like Public figures is another sad state of affairs altogether. The abuse of public funds like EPF, I mean the list is endless. I can go on and on about the many faults, abuses and issues, but I doubt we will ever learn our lessons from these mistake, to bring change, real change, everlasting changes for the betterment of our country, when we have half baked cronies like you and your predecessor.

        Though I am in agreement to what you say above, can you please tell me, why non muslims are not permitted to come and see inside of a mosque. All the other religious places offer that to the people. So there is a contradiction in what you say. dont you think

          First thing is,unlike Kovils,Buddhist Temples and
          Churches,there’s nothing of artistic value inside
          Mosques except architectural beauty in a very few
          ancient mosques.But if you still want to go inside
          a mosque,just follow some simple procedures and in
          most mosques today,you will be allowed in.

      Wht did city Councillors approve it to be built in the first place?

      Muslims have built a Mosque close to 9/11 Ground Zero, where the new twin towers WTC now stands.

      Ireland proposes to build largest Mega Mosque in Europe, that will cater to Ireland’s burgeoning Muslim population.

      Council gives go ahead for Mosque to be built next to a church in Melbourne’s north. The planned mosque will sit next to St Mary’s Ancient Church of the East and be twice its size.

      Makes you feel any better?

        Just wanna know why muslims always (almost) build mosques next to religous places of other faiths. Isnt that inviting animosity?

        I dont think the catholics in ireland or in Aus take that with a good heart!

          sach
          No other religious community in the world take
          religion so serious as Muslims.Muslims are the
          only ones who spend one fourth of their life in
          mosques and prayers.Can you say any other devotee
          goes to his place of worship five times a day?I’ll
          not try to tell you that all those who go to
          mosques like this are of divine characters but it
          is part of their life.More than 98%of Mosques are
          built in the middle of where they are living
          regardless of other places of worship.First question
          should be,whether it is unlawful.Well the next one
          should be,if we are all living and want to live
          side by side,shouldn’t we have our places of worship
          side by side only under certain difficult or
          unavoidable circumstances?Why shouldn’t we learn to
          tolerate this,after all religious places?
          Definitely Muslims won’t build mosques to antagonize
          other religions or compete with others.I’m not in
          cahoot with all what Muslims do in the name of
          religion,but for your question I hope this will give
          you a reasonable input.

          It is not always the case, but city planners have their final say. May be they want all religious sites located within certain perimeters. But yes, you are right. No one for that matter would like if a new place of religious worship comes up right next to an already existing site of a different conviction. But that’s just the way it goes. It happens all the time and in reverse order too. There are such places even in Sri Lanka. Look at Kataragama, and in Colombo city too, Masjid next to a kovil at Mayura place. All in peaceful co-existence. Places for religious worship usually are not considered bad or evil. But that would be for bars that serve liquor, red light cities and Casinos next to places of religious worship. So long as the all the types of adherents respect each other, and not be a nuisance to one another, it is fine. But in the international arena, Muslims have been identified with wickedness or as bad influence, by the media, for all the wrong reasons. That is why the impulse to oppose or reject them at first choice. Reject them and their Masjids coming up anywhere in their own neighborhood. But ask a convert to Islam for their true experience, and then they get convinced that Muslims are not bad after all, and that they are generally peaceful.

        Just after the war Sri Lankan state sponsored free trip to visit VP Deiyo in Vanni. You never MR might oblige a round the trip to Delhi and beyond.

        The other option is to leave saffron at home and visit Tamil Nadu.

        In order to learn fund raising techniques please contact BBS or KP, both are with MR.

    Nothing of the sort (28 killed in religious clashes) happened in Sri Lanka since the defeat of the terrorist LTTE. So why do Pillay and her masters the US and its allies and their stooge Indians cry wolf here day in day out? They badly want such riots and more in Sri Lanka for them to make an excuse to meddle in our affairs.

      Might I suggest that a more appropriate pseudonym for you would be “I am no human being?”
      By the way, why don’t you try some arithmetic like 28 deaths in a country like India (1.5 BILLION and counting) as against AT LEAST three (and probably many more if you count the bodies found floating in the seas of the north immediately after the army shooting) at Weliveriya of a crowd of a few thousand?
      You and your parasitic friends will justify ANYTHING your paymasters do, so we are not surprised!

      Muslim, I am no Muslim-Buddhist and other Avtars,Hindu and Buddhist

      Then it will be Wahhabi and Taliban Hegemony Presided over by the Mullahs and Ulema, instead of by the Hindu Priests.

      This is all about Priest-Mullah-Ulama-Monk hegemony to control the people.

      None of these guys have delivered Nirvana, Nibbana, Samsara, Rebirth, Heaven, Hell, Limbo and purgatory in after life.

      It was hell for the people. Heaven for the Priests, Monks, Mullah and Ulama. No Women in Mosques. Master’s advice to Ananada etc.

      Religion is the opium of the Masses.

      100% true.

      A few years ago India was the SECOND largest Muslim population.

      Now it is the third!

      You are far too extreme PigP. What we are against are the fanatics
      in Islam who are part of the global conspiracy to undermine other
      religions in Sri Lanka. As I mentioned earlier, our Muslims of the
      earlier years were religious and did not endanger us. There are still
      many decent and peaceful Muslims amongst us. The Holy Quran is a respected book over the centuries and we must honour it. Muslims here now appear to have accepted some of the extremists among them made a terrible mistake and compromised the entire community all over the island. Let us leave it that for the moment.

        You say, Muslims of earlier years did not endanger us. Then again, may be because they were very few then. As you wrote once they must have sufficient numbers to be demanding. To say the least, the Koran that I read had degraded non-Muslims as worst of creatures and even compared to vile animals. I am sup riced you call it holy.

        I do not believe that any Muslim who pray five times a day and diligently read Koran would honestly accept non-Muslims are equal to them. Koran 16:106 talks about circumstances a Muslim to tell a lie. You may want to leave it out but do they?

      It is BETTER to live without media freedom than have to put up with this type of RACIST bigotry.

      BTW Hindus are going to learn a BITTER lesson from the Mujahiddin (God’s warriors).

      Britain learnt the lesson a few moths ago. After that now Britain is SCARED to kill Muslims in Syria.

    Authorities are taking suitable action to contain this violence including the charging people for inciting hate and violence.

    “Amid an ongoing political slugfest over the communal clashes that have claimed 33 lives so far, seven leaders from the BJP, one former Congress MP and a former BSP leader besides three from the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) have been booked for allegedly whipping up communal passions through inflammatory speeches at a “mahapanchayat” organised in the city outskirts on September 7. ” (courtesy Hindu)

    This is the difference between India and Sri Lanka where the Police are mere onlookers and protect the thugs.

    It is unfortunate to see that CT has become the forum for ravings and rantings of a degenerate nature. All those who read this news item must be saddened by it. Any kind of violence against any kind of human or animal must be an occasion of sadness. Some commentators here are trying to justify the horrible acts while others try to incite hatred and violence. Please folks, pipe down and stop inciting each other. You achieve nothing but stuff your minds with more hatred. Just let all ethnic divisiveness or religious animosities pass. Limit your comments to language that will appease each other’s minds. Violence and vengeance begets violence and vengeance. There will be no end to it. We are all Sri Lankans and are just waking up from a nightmare of war and violence that spanned almost 4 decades. Enough is enough. Pipe down and forge a new Sri Lankan identity where all of us can live in harmony.
