Incidents of violent clashes were reported in various cities across India during the Ram Navami festival on Sunday. It was alleged that people from the Muslim community hurled stones at Hindu processions. The communal clashes left several people injured.
A prominent Indian Muslim politician has lashed out at Madhya Pradesh State Chief Shivraj Singh Chouhan for punishing the alleged culprits involved in throwing stones at a Hindu procession on Sunday in Khargone during the Ram Navami festival.
Asaduddin Owaisi, chief of the party All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), criticised the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led state government a day after communal violence occurred in the city.
"The rule of law in Madhya Pradesh has been overwhelmed by a mob lynching system. State Chief Shivraj Singh Chouhan, even if your ideology justifies the desecration of mosques and attacks on elders, you should not forget that you occupy a constitutional post. It is your responsibility to protect the life and property of the public", Owaisi said in a series of tweets late Monday night.
