Communal tensions in Madhya Pradesh seem to be on the rise, as Hindu organizations’ confrontations with Muslims continue to escalate. In the most recent incident, a case of misbehaviour and a scuffle involving Shahr Qazi and a Muslim woman has come to light, resulting in a riot by pro-Hindu organizations. The local police have registered an FIR against both the accused parties and the Shahr Qazi.
According to reports from Journal Mirror, the incident unfolded in the Silver Park Colony of Dewas district last Thursday when a group of 6-7 boys, reportedly affiliated with a Hindutva organization, began making lewd comments at a Muslim woman passing by.
The woman, who was subjected to this distressing act, happened to be acquainted with the junior Qazi of the district. Upon receiving information about the incident, Qazi Abul Kalam and several local residents immediately gathered at the scene, sparking a protest against the offenders.
The incident has raised concerns about the increasing tensions between Hindu and Muslim communities in the state. The police have taken action by filing an FIR against those involved, including the accused boys and the Shahr Qazi himself, as investigations into the incident continue.
On Saturday, the Chamunda Hinduist organization assembled outside Kamlex to call for an escalation of Section 307 concerning Kazi. Following this, Vikram Singh Pawar, the son of MLA, arrived at the scene and diffused the situation by fostering understanding.
