Authorities in the state of Madhya Pradesh have destroyed three Muslim-owned homes that they claim were involved in a fight between young people from two different clans in Surajni, a nearby village to Mandsaur.
Muslim families refuted the police’s allegations that Muslim youngsters disturbed the Hindu festival of Navaratri in Madhya Pradesh.
How easy has it become to demean Muslim , accuse them of bogus charges and demolish their house in broad daylight. Even if someone is accused of any charge, why the normal legal course is not taken ?This communal treatment is totally Islamophobic. pic.twitter.com/M5LNoxmeg7

“The Mandsaur district administration and police on Tuesday demolished the houses of three persons accused of throwing stones on a Garba pandal and attacking organisers with a sharp-edged weapon over the weekend,” the Madhya Pradesh Police said.
“The houses were constructed illegally so we demolished them. We are checking the property papers of all the accused and action will be taken accordingly,” Mandsaur sub-divisional magistrate Sandeep Shiva told Hindustan Times.
He added that a complaint had been filed against 19 people, and that seven of them had been taken into custody following an investigation.
According to the SP, three of the accused’s illegal 4,500 square foot building, worth more than 4.5 crore rupees, was destroyed on Tuesday with the cooperation of the revenue department.
The police officer noted that a case was opened for throwing stones at the pandal under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including 307 (attempt to murder).
The argument allegedly turned into stone-throwing when Salman and his friends later arrived at the location of the garba to hunt for the guy with whom he had fought.
