A skirmish over sloganeering led to violence in the region over the eve of Hanuman Jayanti. It seemed like a premeditated move to create disharmony. While the police stopped the violence on its tracks, the ones standing in the C Block comprising Moslems started pelting stones on the police personnel leading to violent outbreak between the Police and Moslem youth.
The Jahangirpuri clashes had left eight policemen and a local injured. Communal clashes have been rocking many parts of India but only reached Delhi a few days back. Similar issues have been seen in other parts of India where India processions were met with resistance and violence from Moslem youth. Processions through Muslim-dominated areas has led to violence and unrest in various parts of India. A stone-pelting incident allegedly occurred while a procession was crossing a Muslim-dominated stretch of the village on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti, Garhwal (Range) DIG Karan Singh Nagnyal has informed the media.
