On India’s Tripura issue, Rahul Gandhi has said that Muslims are being persecuted in Tripura. And he blamed the BJP government for this.
On Thursday (October 28), he said, how long will the government pretend to be blind and deaf! He also alleged that “those who commit violence in the name of Hinduism are not Hindus, they are hypocrites”. In a tweet, he said, “Our Muslim brothers are being brutalized in Tripura.” Those who are spreading hatred and violence in the name of Hindus are not Hindus, they are hypocrites.
A few days ago, the atmosphere in several areas of Tripura became turbulent. Then section 144 was issued on Wednesday. The World Hindu Council (VHP) organized a rally to protest violence against Hindus in Bangladesh. It is claimed that the mosque was vandalized and set on fire. However, the police claimed that it was just a rumor.
Unidentified men vandalized mosques and shops in the Chamtila area of north Tripura on Tuesday evening, locals claimed. However, IGP Law and Order Sourav Tripathi said in a statement that rumors were being spread about the incident. No fire broke out in the mosque. A case has been filed against him for spreading fake news on social media.
However, no unrest was reported in the sensitive area. Members of BSF, State Police and Tripura State Rifles are deployed in the area.
On Thursday, North Tripura MP Rebati Tripura visited the area along with Panisagar Assembly BJP MLA Binoy Bhushan Das. BSF DIG Rajeev Dua said tensions were high in some areas due to the October 26 incident. These areas are close to the border and the BSF is fully vigilant to keep the situation under control. The BSF is assisting the state police and flag marches are being carried out in the area. We are always vigilant.
