Extremists enter al aqsa mosque during Iftar hour

Goa was in crisis mode on Sunday when Hindu-Muslim clashes occurred in the vicinity of Vasco. A large crowd of Ram Navami processionists marched through Vasco on the occasion of Ram Navami on 10th April. They chose the small and congested streets of the area rather than the broader convenient approved route thus creating disruption. At the conclusion, a small group continued to march towards the Masjid-A-Aqsa mosque. Muslims were praying at the mosque ahead of the ‘Iftar’. The processionists chanted ‘Jai Shree Ram’ and political catch phrases such as ‘go to Pakistan’. They entered the mosque and continued sloganeering with intent to provoke. Muslim elders intervened and averted a clash inside the mosque. A scuffle ensured when the Muslims went to the police station to lodge an FIR. The Hindutva groups were at the police station to further incite. This led to unsightly scuffles between Muslim youth and the Hindu youth. It was brought under control by police and elders. In the middle of all this, an alleged stone throwing incident from the Muslim area was reported but its actuality is yet to be established. Until now 17 people have been arrested in the Sunday clashes under bailable offences – all Muslim youth. It demonstrates the communalization of the incident at law and order level. After all, the first assault came from a section of the processionists- all Hindu. Why are no Hindu people arrested? The clash was between two communities. Justice obliges a fair-handed approach. Any bias on the part of the police is unacceptable. A Reserve police force now patrols the streets to forestall more clashes.
