Massive anti-encroachment drive underway in violence-hit area

The locals in the Jahangirpuri area were extremely angry over the anti-encroachment drive by the North Delhi municipal corporation on Wednesday. The demolition process was stopped after several illegal encroachments were demolished by the Municipal Corporation in the violence-hit Jahangirpuri area of the national capital. Among the demolished were a tobacco shop, a scrap dealer's shop, a juice corner, and the front gate of a mosque. Pertinently, the shops that were demolished belonged to both the communities. The process was stopped due to the Supreme Court's intervention which ordered status quo on the demolition drive against the alleged encroachers. The Chief Justice directed the status quo on the demolition drive and agreed to list the matter for hearing on Thursday before an appropriate bench. Several opposition leaders criticized the move saying it was against the poor and the minorities. However, the BJP said it was a legal process. AIMIM chief even reached the site of demolition, but was stopped from entering by the Delhi Police

    Bulldozer action not against any community but criminals who need to be taught lesson: RSS leader

    In the wake of several BJP-ruled states using bulldozers to raze the houses of persons accused of being involved in criminal activities, senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar on Wednesday said this action is not targeted at any particular community, but against those involved in some crime. There was no need to harbour criminals in the name of religion and there was a need "to teach a lesson" to them so that harmony prevails, he said, adding that if someone says that the bulldozer action is against Muslims, it is "hate speech and anti-constitutional allegation".

    Action taken on basis of 'crime', not on 'community': Naqvi on Jahangirpuri arrests

    Hitting out at those alleging biased action in the Jahangirpuri violence case, Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Wednesday said action has been taken on the basis of "crime and conspiracy", not on "caste and community". The senior BJP leader's remarks came after All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen leader Asaduddin Owaisi alleged that "one-sided action" is being taken in the Jahangirpuri violence case. Clashes broke out between two communities during a Hanuman Jayanti procession at Jahangirpuri on Saturday, leaving eight police personnel and a local resident injured. According to police, there was stone-pelting and arson during the clashes and some vehicles were also torched. Naqvi said the culprits have been arrested on the basis of the crime committed by them and not on the basis of their creed. No one should be allowed to harm the harmony of society, he said. Some people are constantly engaged in delivering "no-ball of hate" and "hat-trick of hostility", the minister.
