Ruckus after offensive post on social media in Karnataka’s Raichur
On Monday, tension prevailed in the Raichur district of Karnataka, as two groups of different religions came face to face following a social media post on Islam.
According to police, a group of Muslims had tried to barge into a Hindu temple. The police rushed to the spot and were trying to rein in the situation.
The police prevented the group and arrested four persons, who were identified as Akbar, Shameed, Tajuddin, and Samir. The police also slapped cases on 30 persons in connection with the incident.
Police said that the incident took place near the Bangali camp in Sindhanur taluk in Raichur district after an alleged controversial post on Islam came to the fore from the social media account of a young woman. As the post went viral on social media the group of Muslims questioned the Hindus living in the area.
This led to a verbal altercation and the Muslim youths allegedly attacked the localities. After coming to know about the development more than 60 youths came from Sindhanuru town to the village and attacked another group with weapons.
Meanwhile, a Muslim youth created a ruckus by sleeping inside the temple after barging into the premises of the Durga Devi temple. The local villagers objected to it and police dragged him out to control the situation.
The tension continues in the region and the police have initiated strict measures.
