Muslim residents in the Ujjain’s Gulmohar colony asked to vacate homes to pave way for Kumbh Mela 2028

By Muslim Mirror Staff

The Madhya Pradesh government has asked Muslims to leave Ujjain’s Gulmohar colony as the city is going to host the Kumbh Mela in 2028.

On December 11, the Ujjain Municipal Corporation (UMC) issued a public notice in Gulmohar and Gyarsi colonies, asking inhabitants to vacate their homes.

The majority of those who live here are impoverished. Salim Bhai Patangwale, a resident of Gulmohar Colony, died immediately after UMC’s statement on December 11 evening. Residents’ rage was fueled by the occurrence.

Residents of Gulmohar and Gyarsi Colony have said that “their homes were not constructed on government-owned property. Small farmers were the owners. These people attempted to recoup their investment by farming but were unsuccessful, so they sold their land as tiny plots. Poor people bought the land alongside them. The administration now wants to have them gone.”
