A small tiff between Jats and Muslims became a full blown riot and many lost their lives. RIP to all victims.

Banned Youtube clip from Pakistan triggered riots in Uttar Pradesh

A gory clip of two youngsters being lynched by a mob in Pakistan in 2010, triggered off riots in Uttar Pradesh.

It started with this:

Two brothers kill a man stalking their sister and the stalker's family kills both of them. It was a revenge killing that triggered sectarian violence in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar district that has left 28 people dead.

On August 27, two brothers of a girl were beaten to death when they went to talk to the family of a stalker who was stabbed to death by them in Kawaal village.

And then some people used that video of the boys being beaten to death in Pakistan and linked it to this incident.
Don't know whether those fake video was circulated shown to specific community of people by political party people or just by local people having hate towards other religion people

But one thing that video which was circulated uploaded on youtube was not of Sialkot 2 brother killing by Mob in Pakistan... it was something else
Videos show leaders from several parties inciting violence in Muzaffarnagar

As Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav blamed the recent riots in Muzaffarnagar on a political conspiracy, Headlines Today got access to videos that expose politicians belonging to both the communities who incited violence with their hate speeches and inflammatory statements.

Even as the key parties involved -- Congress, BJP, Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal -- the videos of the assembly of people for two subsequent mahapanchayats in Muzaffarnagar and that of a religious gathering following special Friday prayers tell the truth behind the larger conspiracy.

The religious gathering on August 30 saw some politicians from the community as they delivered extremely inflammatory speech. The religious gathering was followed by Jat community's khap mahapanchayat, which took place despite prohibitory orders in place. Certainly, the mahapanchayat was not possible without the local authorities' connivance.

The videos of these gathering show that some of the people present there were armed heavily. And, the politicians played their part by delivering hate speeches.

Be it Sadhvi Prachi of the BJP at the mahapanchyat, or BSP MP Qadir Rana, Congress leader Saeed-uz-Zaman, Samajwadi Party's Rashid Siddiqui and another BSP leader Noor Salim Rana, all were present at the religious gathering spouting venom to inflame passions.

Ironically, most of these politicians were not booked under Section 153-A of Indian Penal Code (IPC) despite their hate speeches. Now questions remain why the district administration allowed these congregations despite prohibitory orders and why the leaders were allowed by the police to incite violence.

A week later and the violence continues.

Violence erupts in UP again

Muzaffarnagar district was hit by fresh violence on Saturday in which two people suffered serious injuries even as tension simmered in rural areas of Saharanpur and Meerut districts after more bodies were recovered from Ganga canal.

Armed men numbering about 50 opened fire at a group of people in a forested area in Phugana locality in the district on Saturday.
Two persons sustained serious injuries in the firing and were admitted to hospital while others managed to escape, according to police sources here. Tension flared up in the area after the firing and security personnel in strength were deployed to prevent any reaction, sources said.

Tension also simmered in the neighbouring Saharanpur district after an attack on a youth. In Meerut, tension prevailed following killing of a youth a couple of days back. Two bodies were recovered from the Ganga canal in Muzaffarnagar and one in Meerut district taking the number of dead in the communal violence to 47.

Muzaffarnagar riots started with this teen's harassment

Muzaffarnagar: At 1 pm on a Monday, two teen girls are gathered in a small house with their textbooks.

One of them is the 17-year-old whose alleged harassment by a young Muslim boy triggered the riots that tore through Muzaffarnagar earlier this month, leaving nearly 50 people dead.

When Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav visited her village Malikpura on Sunday, she handed him a letter. "I asked him to make sure that there is a direct road that we can use to get to our school," she says. She hopes to someday be a teacher.

But the journey has suddenly become much more complicated. Her school is just outside the village of Kawal, a 20-minute walk.

That's where her cousin and her brother had beaten to death a young Muslim boy named Shahnawaz on August 27 for allegedly stalking her.

Within 45 minutes, they were dead - a mob had lynched them before they could leave Kawal and head home.

Since then, young girls in the area have been banned by concerned parents from walking to the nearest schools in Kawal village, where Muslims are in the majority - till three weeks ago, Hindu Jats from the adjoining village Malikpura lived peacefully with them.

That equilibrium went up in flames with the worst riots in Uttar Pradesh in over a decade, with the army being called in to first enforce curfew and then restore law and order.

The 17-year-old whose brother and cousin were killed says that it was not uncommon for young girls like her to be harassed on their way to school. "We never told our family about such incidents, fearing that we would be asked to sit at home and our studies would end," she said.

Like other Muslims in Kawal, though, the father of Shahnawaz, the boy who died, says that there was no sexual harassment involved and that his son died after an argument over a motorcycle accident.

That is what is noted in the official police case, as well, though Jats allege a cover-up.

After her relatives were killed, thousands of Jat farmers converged for a gathering on September 7 near Kawal to demand justice. On their way home, they were attacked with knives and swords, triggering a backlash.

Almost 2 months later and these idiots are still killing each other.

Three killed in fresh violence in India's Muzaffarnagar

Three people have been killed in fresh violence in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, which was hit by religious riots last month.

While some reports described the violence as a religious clash, police told the BBC that it was sparked off by a dispute between two families.

More than 60 people died in the Hindu-Muslim clashes which erupted on 7 September in the town of Muzaffarnagar.

The riots were described as the worst in India in a decade.

Thousands of people fled their homes in the violence which was sparked by the killing of three men who had objected to the harassment of a young woman.

In the latest incident on Wednesday evening, three Muslim men were beaten to death while another was injured in clashes between local Muslim and Hindu communities at Muhammadpurraisingh village, senior local official Kaushal Raj told Press Trust of India news agency.

Muzzafarnagar police superintendent Hari Narayan Singh told BBC Hindi that the violence was triggered by a "family dispute".

Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state, saw serious Hindu-Muslim riots in 1992 after the demolition of the Babri mosque in Ayodhya by hardline Hindus.

Correspondents say some political parties have accused each other of trying to polarise the communities along religious lines ahead of next year's general elections.

This re started awter Owaisi visited the place.Samajwadi Party is doing this so wrong.Has literally become a tool at hands of Azam Khan and his way of anti hindus is going to bring down the SP government.There has been over 100 riots or communal tensions in UP since SP came to power.
Didn't Rahul Gandhi accuse ISI ? Or was it another case of communal violence ?
This is a welcome development but still no justice for the riot victims.

7 Get Life In Jail For Killing 2 Men That Led To 2013 Muzaffarnagar Riots
The Muzaffarnagar riots of 2013, one of the worst communal clashes in Uttar Pradesh's history, had led to the killings of 66 people and over 50,000 were displaced.

MUZAFFARNAGAR: Seven people who were found guilty of killing two men in an attack that is said to have triggered riots in western Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar in 2013 have been sentenced to life in prison today. The Muzaffarnagar riots, one of the worst communal clashes in Uttar Pradesh's history, had led to the killings of 66 people and over 50,000 were displaced.
The seven men - Muzammil, Mujassim, Furkan, Nadeem, Janangir, Afzal and Ikbal - were convicted for killing two men in Kawal village and rioting - by a local court in Muzaffarnagar on Wednesday.

According to the police complaint, two men of Kawal village were battered to death by five of the seven convicts over a minor altercation. The two other accused, Afzal and Iqbal, were summoned by the court later under provisions of section 319 of the Criminal Procedure Code when the evidence of their complicity in the killings emerged during the trial, reported news agency Press Trust of India.

The clashes that broke out in Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts after the two killings saw the deployment of the Army in the state for the first time in 20 years.

More than 6,000 cases had been filed after the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots and nearly 1,500 people were arrested. The case, investigated by a Special Investigation Team or SIT, had filed 175 chargesheets.

A probe into the riots had given a clean chit to the then Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh and blamed the local police and officials for misjudging and mishandling the situation.

After the Yogi Adityanath government came to power in Uttar Pradesh in 2017, BJP leaders from western UP, some of whom are named in cases related to the Muzaffarnagar riots, approached the chief minister for withdrawal of cases against those who they say had been falsely implicated. The Yogi Adityanath government has moved to withdraw 38 cases so far, but those concerning BJP leaders continue to remain on track for now.

This is so sad. Why cant we hang these hate criminals in public...
Muzaffarnagar Riots Cases Against MLA To Go? State Writes To Officials


Sangeet Som accused in cases related to 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots
UP asks for status of cases against him, will decide whether to drop them
Over 60 people died in the riots; Som is accused of fuelling violence
The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh government has initiated steps that could lead to the withdrawal of court cases against its controversial lawmaker Sangeet Som, related to the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots. The state's law department has written to officials, asking for the status of seven cases filed against Mr Som between 2003 and 2017.

Three of the cases are linked to the Muzaffarnagar riots of 2013, in which more than 60 people lost their lives.

According to the election affidavit filed by Sangeet Som for the 2017 UP assembly elections, some of the charges against him related to the Muzaffarnagar riots include circulating fake news, promoting religious enmity, conspiracy, and rioting.

The district administration admitted that they received a letter from the government this morning and that the list of cases includes one from 2013.

"We have been asked to prepare a report based on 13 pointers related to the withdrawal of the cases. The pointers include the names of courts, the stage of the trial, the details of the complainants and the accused," said Amit Kumar Singh, a senior government officer in Muzaffarnagar.

The administration says they will inquire about the progress of the cases in local court, file a report and send it to the UP government's law department.

A call will be taken by the law department and if the government decides to withdraw the cases, it will have to approach the local courts, where the cases are being heard or are pending. The court's decision will be final.

Sangeet Som, MLA from the western UP's Sardhana assembly seat, has been a controversial figure because of his statements and accusations over his role in the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots.

Since the Yogi Adityanath government came to power in 2017 in Uttar Pradesh, his government had sought recommendations about closure in over 100 riot cases related to Muzaffarnagar.

The government has sought permission from courts to close at least 74 of these 100 cases, but all of these are pending.

The decision to initiate a possible withdrawal of Mr Som's cases though may turn out to be very controversial because so far the government has insisted it has been only looking to withdraw cases against what it calls ' innocent' and 'disempowered' citizens.
Perhaps no riots took place in Muzzafarnagar to start with? It was only a figment of imagination of bloody liberals who have nothing to say except for castigating deshbhakt BJP, day in and day out.
Modi hai to mumkin hain....
