Curfew was bimposed in Rajasthan’s Karauli after communal tensions broke out in the city.
The tensions broke out after Hindu groups took out a bike rally to celebrate the Hindu new year through a Muslim locality in the city.
During the procession, Hindutva songs inciting violence against Muslims were played on speakers.
In one such songs, the extremist singers chant “Topee vaala sar jhukaake jay shree raam bolega” (Muslims will bow to Ram and say Jai Shree Ram).
मुस्लिम मोहल्ले में जाकर रमज़ान के महीने में मस्जिद के आगे यदि यह गाना “टोपी वाला सर झुकाके जय श्री राम बोलेगा” बजेगा और भड़काऊ नारे लगेंगे तो जनता फूलों से स्वागत नहीं करेगी..! इसलिए नफ़रत फैलाने वाले और दंगे के बीज बोने वाले इन लफ़ंगों और मूर्खों पर कार्यवाही होनी चाहिए..! pic.twitter.com/MlnopOAPrL

The rally drew support on Twitter from the likes of Neha Joshi, Vice President of BJP’s Yuva Morcha, Kapil Mishra, Hindu far-right activist among many others.
Several people called the rally an attempt of “clear incitement”.
Member of Parliament, Asaduddin Owaisi took to Twitter and said, “It seems that the government of Ashok Gehlot has given free rein to the rioters and extremists. In Karauli, if the procession was being taken out for religious reasons, then what was the need for such songs? It is clear that the radical organizations had the backing of the administration.”
Avinash Thavni of the All India Professional Congress said that Amit Shah wants to
“make Rajasthan a laboratory” for hate politics.
“BJP, RSS election preparation started in Rajasthan, Copy-paste formula from Hitler’ s book. Present Muslims as threat for state and Hindus. Keep spreading hatred against them.” wrote a user on social media.
Hawa Singh Ghumaria, the ADG of Law and Order, has said that 36 persons have been detained in connection with the violence, and the situation is now under control.
According to the Police, as many as 35 people have been injured in the clashes.
Cheif Minister of the state Ashok Gehlot on said that strict actions will be taken against people involved in the Karuali clashes.
“Those involved in inciting riots will not be spared and stringent action will be taken against them. Rule of law will be followed in the State,” the Rajasthan CM said.

India is no more democracy cou try
I am an Indian citizen native of Rajasthan. In my Karauli district, Meenas are in quite large numbers (which matters in any democracy). The Meena community (so-called tribe), due to ST reservation, is in large numbers in the police and administration of Rajasthan hence the Meena community will not like the police & administration (to be punished) which is mainly responsible for these communal riots in Karauli where they allowed communal Hindus to create trouble during the procession (as revealed at above video by Arjun Mehar) and after PFI had already informed administration & police two days in advance about likelihood of such riots.
Unless the High Court Jaipur Rajasthan or Supreme Court of India (SCI) is moved by Muslims to punish including & ESPECIALLY the police & administration of Karauli for their complicity in these communal riots (an euphemism for attacking innocent Muslims by communal Hindus) there will be no justice in this matter and such unfortunate incidents will keep on repeating in India.
But Muslims will not do it due to un-Islamic cowardice as they showed it in case of Babri-masjid matter where Muslims (despite my repeatedly asking them through national & international media) didn’t file petition in SCI for restoration of status-quo-ante of Babri Masjid which was demolished in 1992 in the presence of the observer of the SCI with the result it thoroughly poisoned India communally [in addition to thousands of innocent killed & injured (mainly Muslims) in communal riots post Babri-masjid demolition including in 2002 in Gujarat].
It seems Indian Muslims want to destroy rule of law in India out of some nefarious design.
