    On the Night Before Holi, a Muslim Man Was Lynched in UP

    Allahabad: In one of the most peaceful areas of Uttar Pradesh, one which has not seen communal clashes for several years now, the night before Holi was different. While most people were busy making arrangements for the festival, a Muslim man was attacked and lynched by a mob.

    In Poroshi village, under the Obara police station in Sonbhadra district, 20 people reportedly attacked and killed an elderly man, Mohammad Anwar. They first hit him with sticks and then used an axe. Anwar had just returned from the Ajmer Sharif dargah after ziyarat (pilgrimage).

    An FIR has been lodged with the names of 20 accused. The main accused, Ravinder Kharwar who runs an RSS shakha nearby, has been absconding.

    According to Anwar’s brother Naeem, “The murder is the fallout of a dispute over a small piece of cemented land called the Moharram Chabutra, where the Muslims used to keep their tazias during Moharram. This has been the practice for the last 10-15 years, and both Hindus and Muslims lived in harmony. But Kharwar, the main accused, had his eye on this land as he wanted to run the RSS shakha there.”

    “Using his clout as a government school teacher, Kharwar was successful in getting the cemented portion removed. We complained to the higher authorities. It was only after the intervention of the sub-divisional magistrate and other senior officials that we reached an agreement with the other party.”

    Close to a month and a half ago, the cemented land was razed one again. Like before, the police had to be called in and status quo restored.

    “The murder was planned and they came with sticks and an axe”, said Naeem. “The accused wanted to perform the Holika Dahan on that land. When Anwar raised questions on the mob’s intentions, they covered him with a piece of cloth and attacked him,” said Naeem.

    Anwar’s son, Mohammad Hasnain, told The Wire, ‘This is not the first time that there has been a dispute regarding this land called, ‘Imam Chowk’. Whenever we approached the police, they said that the matter will be resolved amicably. But nothing happened.”

    On hearing of the attack, a large police contingent rushed to the spot, including superintendent of police Salman Taj Patil.

    Patil said that he received information about the violence at around 1 am. Anwar was immediately rushed to a hospital, where the doctors declared him dead.

    Though the main accused is still absconding, a total of seven persons have been arrested. The National Human Rights Commission has also taken up the matter.

    No deflection. Look at the cases of Hindu attacks on Muslims. 90% of the cases are from a single state UP.

    You don't hear such news from South or any other place. UP has serious problems. Terrible place to live for minorities.

    This! It is only UP which is giving a bad name to the otherwise peaceful and cultured indians.

    India should disown the state and donate it to Bangladesh, that way it can no longer sully India's pristine reputation.

    In defence of India many minorities in Pak also suffer daily. In a big country like India such incidents will happen. Even in Europe discriminatory behaviour towards Muslims is a daily occurrence as well so why not report all such incidents as well? The point is we don't need to report every such incident in India or elsewhere giving a day to day commentary.

    These murders happen all the time, both ways but in places like UP Hindutva goons are more emboldened because of the ruling dispensation. Amused to see Pak PPers highlight the sufferings of minorities in India all the time. Indians want to correct Pakistan while Pakistanis want to look at the plight of Indian Muslims. It will serve the interests of both if they focus their energies within their house. There have been some unpleasant incidents regarding minorities in Pakistan in the recent past, but many Pakistanis seem to be willingly unaware of them. Similarly many Indians including ministers don't want to talk about communal lynchings at home but are busy talking about Pakistan. Sad state of affairs.
