The state Muslim Morcha of Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday strongly condemned the ongoing communal violence in Uttar Pradesh (UP) and lodged a massive protest at Bathindi on the outskirts of Jammu against the Samajwadi Party (SP) government in UP.
The protest was led by BJP Muslim Morcha district president Bashir Ahmed and BJP industry cell convener Vikram Randhawa.
While addressing the protestors, the speakers strongly condemned the flaring up of communal incidents in UP and came down heavily upon the Akhilesh Yadav government for failing to curb such incidents. The speakers urged the public in general to maintain communal harmony and not to pay any heed towards the rumours.
Randhawa while speaking on the occasion lashed out at Akhilesh Yadav and Mulayam Singh Yadav terming them fully responsible for the violence. He urged the President Pranab Mukherjee to impose president rule in the state as the rulers have miserably failed to maintain law and order in the state.
He said a total of 107 incidents of communal violence had taken place in UP in a short span of just 17 months of the Samajwadi Party's rule and nearly 100 innocent lives had been lost in these incidents that clearly indicated the failure of the SP government which now had no right to continue.
Ramzan Mohd, Sher Mohd, Shabir Hussain, Allah Din, Ashok Sharma, Karamat Hussain, Mohd Ashraf, Abdul Gabbar, Hyder Ali, Hamid Ali, Shamsh-u-din, Muneer Alam, Sadiq Hussain were present on the occasion.
