The violence started on Tuesday night and continued till the wee hours of this morning. Two areas, D.J. Halli and K.G. Halli, in the Pulakeshinagar limits of Bengaluru saw widespread violence as an angry mob went on a rampage to protest against a Facebook post, allegedly put up by P. Naveen, nephew of Pulakeshinagar MLA Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy of the Congress.
Police first lathi-charged the rioters before lobbing tear gas shells and finally opening fire to quell the mob. Local media reports that two people killed in the riots had died of gunshot wounds. At least 60 officers were wounded in the violence as angry crowds attacked a police station, set vehicles on fire and burnt down the house of a Bangalore lawmaker MLA Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy of the Congress.
Further, Section 144 was imposed in Bengaluru while curfew was clamped in DJ Halli, KG Halli and Kaval Byrasandra police station limits.
“I appeal to my Muslim brethren that we should not resort to violence for the fault committed by some miscreants. There is no need to fight. We all are brothers. We will get the person punished as per law. We will also be with you. I appeal to the Muslim friends to be calm,” MLA Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy said in a video message last night.
As always after every riot and violence, destruction, burning, “some” came out after with an agenda to showcase a false narrative. This time “Human Chain” to guard a Hindu Temple. But the question remains, guarding the temple from whom?
A viral video claims that Muslim youth form a human chain to guard a temple during the violence that erupted in Bengaluru Tuesday night has emerged on social media. The temple is a Hanuman Temple located near Shampura main road.
So, suddently some media houses and politicans want Indians to forget why there were riots, who planned the riots and who executed them. But here it is, lets go gaga over some two minute video “scene” well planned to show that “look, we saved a temple.”
Well, no one is giving their opinion here, readers are smart enough to undertand and here are some tweets.
