UP Committee of CPI(ML) ND strongly condemns the Bijnor administration, particularly SP Bijnor for manipulating the Peda village anti Muslim flare up to cover up and save the communal elements and the role of SI Anurag Chowdhary, local Jat landlords Sansar Singh, Pritam Singh and Manoj Lala who organized the attack yesterday on the houses of poor Muslim landless workers of Dhobi community.
CPI(ML) has demanded
- Registration of cases against the guilty SI, policeman, Home guards and other accused. Immediate arrest of all the accused.
- Registration of a case of criminal conspiracy and abetment to communal disharmony against SP Bijnor.
- A Judicial enquiry into the incident, especially into the communal role of the police officials.
Sections of the media have wrongly reported the incident as a clash between two communities. The entire attack was by Jat goondas belonging to a powerful family of Peda and the Home Guards on the Muslims. All the dead and injured are Muslims. They have also wrongly reported the matter as one of Muslim youth eve teasing Jat girls. The truth is that Jat boys were eve teasing Muslim girls going to school.
As has been widely reported in local papers, several girls of Peda village go to study at their KPS school every day and assemble at the local bus stop at 8 am.
