Communal tension arises due to provocative songs

The festivities of Dussera ended in communal violence on Wednesday night, where the 'provocative' songs being played at the Bhandara be stopped. In the resulting stone-pelting that ensued from the local mosque, members of both communities, as well as passers-by were injured. However, before the violence could turn into a full-fledged communal riot, spreading out into the city, the local social activists and senior citizens managed to calm both the parties down. Station House Officer Shahganj Arvind Kumar said that the incident took place in the Deoretha area of Agra where a Bhandara was being organised by the locals. "Around 10 pm, local Muslim youths arrived at the Bhandara site and started alleging that the provocative music being played at the Bhandara was denigrating their religion. They demanded that the music be stopped, but the youths playing the music did not stop the music."
