NEW DELHI : After reports of violence in many parts of the country during Ram Navami processions, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that hate was weakening the country.

In a tweet, he said, “Hate, violence and exclusion are weakening our beloved country. The path to progress is paved with the bricks of brotherhood, peace and harmony. Let’s stand together to secure a just, inclusive India.”

Communal violence erupted in at least two districts of Madhya Pradesh during the Ram Navami celebrations on Sunday.

The first incident of violence was reported in Khargone district, where nearly half-a-dozen police personnel got injured while a similar incident occurred in the Sendhwa town of Barwani district.

A similar incident took place in Gujarat’s Sabarkantha.

Communal tension had erupted in Karauli last week following stone-pelting at a motorcycle rally passing through a Muslim-dominated area on ‘Nav Samvatsar,’ reportedly chanting anti-Muslim slogans, the Hindu New Year. — IANS
