At least three people were killed in India's IT hub Bangalore after a "derogatory" Facebook post about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) sparked riots and resulted in clashes between police and thousands of protesters, it emerged on Wednesday.
According to Times of India, the violence, that erupted at 7pm on Tuesday, went on for at least five hours. The report added that 110 others had been arrested as of Wednesday morning.
The report stated that the violence erupted after a close relative of a local lawmaker, Congress MLA Akhanda Srinivasamurthy, made a "derogatory" post about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on the social media site. The post has since been deleted.
Reacting to the post, a mob gathered outside the lawmaker's house and set two cars on fire. Police confirmed that Muzamill Pasha and six others from the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) were also detained for questioning, the publication said.
Bangalore Police Commissioner Kamal Pant wrote on Twitter that the lawmaker's relative had been arrested for the post, along with about 100 others for rioting and arson, and the situation was now under control. At least 60 officers were injured the previous evening as a furious crowd attacked a police station and set vehicles on fire. Local media images showed protesters trying to barge into the police building and shouting slogans outside the politician's home.
Police opened fire with live ammunition and tear gassed the violent crowds. Three people were critically wounded during Tuesday's violence and at least one reporter was injured, police told AFP. The TOI report added that protesters had demanded that the lawmaker's relative be placed under arrest, who had later claimed that his Facebook account had been hacked and he did not post the objectionable content.
Meanwhile, Srinivasamurthy called the incident an "an act of miscreants". "The police and government will investigate and initiate legal action against mischief mongers. I am the MLA of this constituency and everyone here is my family.
"I request you to maintain peace. I fear miscreants may take advantage of the situation," he was quoted as saying. A ban on gatherings was in effect in some areas of the city on Wednesday, with nearly 10,000 police reservists patrolling the streets to keep order.
Bangalore is known as the Silicon Valley of India and is home to a sizable Muslim community among its eight million people. India is officially a secular country but has been plagued by a long history of violence between its Hindu majority and Muslim minority. These incidents have increased in recent times, particularly since the Hindu national government of Narendra Modi came to power in 2014.
More than 50 people were killed during riots in the capital New Delhi earlier this year, with most of the victims Muslims.
well that is the news.. and .....THAT IS OVER ANTI-ISLAM POST IN A FACEBOOK....
from that Popular IT city of India ., that IT hub of that Indian city Bangalore is well known all over the globe., Indians will loose international business doing such things ..
One must realize here ., the reason some young foolish Non-Muslim fools write such things on Prophet of Islam is because SOME IDIOTS IN ISLAM WROTE BULLSHIT ON PROPHET IN THOSE HADITH ..
1). They hate Islam
2). They hate Muslims
3) They use narrations from Islamic books itself
See there., SAME THING THEY CAN NOT DO THAT TO JESUS CHRIST., irrespective whether Moses, Jesus, Muhammad were real or imaginary stories.... because Early Christian historians were NOT fools unlike Early Muslim historians that wrote nonsense about Prophet Muhammad., that too some 2 to 300 years after the death of Prophet of Islam
So it is vital for those who have interests of Muslim folks around the globe not just in Islamic countries .. THAT ISLAMIC HISTORIANS MUST CLEAN UP THIS RUBBISH HISTORY OF PROPHET ..
that is written by those who converted in Islam in early Islamic times for loot and booty in the name of Prophet..
Again Islamic historians must clean up this nonsense., otherwise such internet posts and such killings/murders will continue to occur around the globe.
