At least three people died and 110 were arrested in the aftermath of the violence that broke out in Bengaluru near the Congress leaders' house over an alleged derogatory social media post by his relative. The three people died after the police fired on the angry mob who attacked the Cong MLA's residence
Angry mobs attacked the house of Pulakeshinagar MLA Akhanda Srinivas, and in DJ Halli and KG Halli police station areas of Bengaluru. They pelted stones on police officers guarding the MLA's residence.
Reportedly, the MLA was not at his residence when the mob clashed with the police there.
The protesters claimed that relative of the Congress MLA from Pulakeshinagar allegedly put up an inciting social media post about the Prophet. Reportedly, the aggrieved went to the police station to file an FIR against the siad person, but the attitude of the police angered them, and violence ensued thereafter.
"Around 60 police personnel including an Additional Commissioner of Police injured in clashes that broke out over an alleged inciting social media post, in DJ Halli & KG Halli police station areas," Bengaluru Police Commissioner Kamal Pant told ANI.
The Police Commissioner told the media that CrPC Section 144 has been imposed in the city, and a curfew has been imposed DJ Halli and KG Halli police station limits. Moreover, he said that the accused Naveen has been arrested for the Facebook post.
The Police Commissioner further appealed to everyone to cooperate with the force in order to maintain peace.
Muzamil Pasha, a Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) leader has been arrested by Police in connection with the violence.
"I think it was a planned riot. Within an hour of a post on social media thousands of people gathered & damaged 200-300 vehicles & MLA's residence. We'll take serious action. It was an organised incident. SDPI is behind it," Karnataka Minister CT Ravi said.
Meanwhile, the MLA's relative claimed that his Facebook account was hacked and he was unaware of the derogatory post on the Prophet.
"The incident that took place last night is very unfortunate. A lot of damage has been caused to public property. I appeal to all the people of the city not to be provoked or disturbed by this incident," GN Shivamurthy, Deputy Commissioner, Bengaluru Urban said.
Karnataka Chief Minister B. S. Yediyurappa stated that strict action will be taken against the perpetrators.
"Directives issued against perpetrators and govt has taken all possible steps to curb the situation. Attack on journalists, Police and public is unacceptable. Govt won't tolerate such provocations and rumours. Strict action against perpetrators is certain," Karnataka Chief Minister said.
"I strongly condemn the incident and our party also condemns whatever happened last night. It happened due to a person's post on social media. At this point, it is important to maintain peace," Karnataka Congress Chief DK Shivakumar said.
"I have called a meeting of our legislators at 12 o'clock today. I have spoken to our CLP leader Siddaramaiah, we will give full support to the government to maintain peace and harmony," he added.
Woke Muzzies doing what woke Muzzies do.
Well, that escalated quickly.
Interesting. Islam looks like leftist totalitarian fascism. Destructive and murderous.
Neither Islam, nor Marxism are compatible with western notions of civil society. At present, they are loose allies with the common purpose of deconstructing and destroying the Judeo-Christian foundations of the west. If and when that goal is achieved, they will surely turn on one another like two starved pit bulls fighting over the same scrap of meat.
So, exactly what did they say about the pedophile prophet?
Lest we forget, all cultures are the same … shoved down our throats on a daily basis.

If Cameltoe gets elected as VP, this sectarian violence is coming here. Castism already is.

Probably pointed out that a 40-year-old man having sex with a 6-year-old would correctly be classified as child-rape ...
Muslims don’t like it when that fact about the Profit Mohammed is mentioned ...
The violence is by the Muslims, not by the Hindus. This isn’t sectarian violence either - it’s communal, Muslims attacking
on a serious note - drawing analogies between Islam and Christianity
Uncreated, eternal Word of God Jesus the Quran
Perfect man Jesus Mohammad
Since Mo is the “Muslim perfect man” he could do no wrong and you are supposed to emulate him, so for Mozzies marrying 6 year olds is fine.
Btw, Mo waited 3 years before consummating his marriage with Aisha.
Three. whole. years. What patience for a 60 year old not to bonk a 9 year old, dontcha think? No wonder he is the perfect “man”!
I had a neighbour from India for a few years, and just from talking to her I developed a pretty good Indian accent.
Whenever there's an article from India, I read it to myself in that accent. Makes it easier to understand.
Wow, touchy. If Christans started doing this here over real or imagined insults it would be 24/7/365 riots.
Ehh. Looks like Portland on any given night lately.
“So, exactly what did they say about the pedophile prophet?”
I want to know too. I’ll bet that it wasn’t anything so strong as calling him a pedophile. Strange if the powers of “respect”, “politeness, or “discretion” (not to mention fear) are so strong that we cannot know what the allegedly offensive content was.
