June,2014 Riot Controversy

On Sunday, the 8th of June, 2014, an accident that took place near Chungi No. 5 on Pataudi road of the town proved to be very fatal for the peace of the area. As two communities clashed in Tauru, a town in Mewat, 40 km from Gurgaon, political parties rushed to the town to slur each other and gain political mileage in the run up to the Assembly elections due in October.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sukhbir Singh Jaunapuriya, Member of Parliament (MP) from Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan, trained guns at the Congress. Jaunapuriya had lost the last by-poll from Sohna.

“This government has done nothing but divide people on grounds of religion by favouring one while oppressing the other. It has only played its dirty vote bank politics to remain in power. Whatever happened today happened with the collusion of Hooda government. This government has chosen to rein in overloaded dumpers for only politics,” he said while addressing a gathering on the road to Vijay chowk from Tauru chowk.

Other BJP leaders were not far behind in reaching the spot, while an immediate panchayat was called at a dharamshala, where people vented out their frustration.

“One community is increasingly becoming just a footnote in the entire social structure of Mewat while the aggression of the other is going on increasing,” said Lala Satish Chand, a resident of Tauru.

Gurgaon BJP leader GL Sharma, who is a close confidante of MP and minister of state for defence Rao Inderjit Singh also addressed the panchayat and conveyed the minister’s message.

Meanwhile, Gopi Chand Gehlot of INLD also castigated the government for its laxity in dealing with overloaded dumpers and the incompetence to deal with communal violence. “What happened today is unfortunate, but a result of the negative attitude of the Congress government,” he said.

Curfew was clamped in Tauru in the wake of tension between two communities after a truck mowed down two bike-bor ne men, killing one of them on the spot. The deceased was a 22-year-old youth. The driver and helper of the truck, who belong to a particular community, were thrashed by a mob, sparking communal violence in the area, according to the police. BACKGROUND OF THE LATEST EPISODE Tauru, a small town and a business hub for the local communities, has been maintaining peaceful coexistence between the Meo Muslims and Hindus throughout. Here the impact of the partition in 1947 and of communalism during the Babri Masjid demolition in 1992 was minimal. While the mainstream parties have been exploiting the Meos of the region as their vote bank, media hype in favour of Modi and BJP during the recently concluded elections was able to polarise the Hindu community. Muslims remained divided mainly between the Congress and the Indian National Lok Dal. The well thought out strategy of the BJP here is to flare up passions just before any election. Communal politics in the garb of cow protection was played in Jhajjar, Pataudi and Dharuheda just before the general elections. It made the local people vote in favour of the BJP en masse. Rao Inderjit Singh, MP from Gurgaon, too switched sides from the Congress to the BJP, and again won. Assembly elections are due in Haryana in September or October. Having tasted the success of its polarising strategy, the BJP is now using the same disastrous tactics to disturb the peaceful atmosphere and divide the people on communal lines for its poll victory in the Mewat region. To an extent it has already succeeded in communalising the unfortunate accident of June 8. Whether we call it fear psychosis, retaliation or a defensive act, the local leadership of the Muslims mobilised the latter in response to the rumoured killing of two Meo boys. They pelted stones and used firearms to damage the properties belonging to the Hindus. Another reason provoking the Muslims was the unruly inhumane attitude of the mob at the site who didn’t allow the injured boys to be taken for medical help. With an exception of Sawai Singh Sehrawat and Saida Khan (ex-MLA), local leaders of both the communities displayed a highly partisan attitude and played a negative role. When the incident took place and the mob didn’t allow the injured any medical help, Rahim Khan Nambardar of Pachgaon announced through the public address system of the village mosque about the incident and mobilised the community. A gathering of 1000 to 1500 Meos took place at the main chowk of the town at around 10 a m. Tempers were running high. Fundamentalist elements present in the gathering emotionally charged the atmosphere, instigating the youngsters to resort to stone pelting, destruction of properties and firing. Zakir Hussain, a local politician belonging to Indian National Lok Dal, who lost the recently concluded general elections to Rao Inderjit Singh (BJP), also instigated the mob. On the other hand, Hindu militant organisations and Dr R P Sharma, Niranjan, Sunil Mittal, Babli Kabadi and Raj Kumar Mittal professing allegiance to the BJP instigated the Hindus by generating and spreading rumours, including rumours about the sacrilege of a local temple and slaughtering of a cow at the main chowk. Our team also came to know that a Hindu boy from a nearby village, Didhara, was arrested by the police for possessing a country made firearm during this incident. On investigations, it was revealed that he had supplied 12 such firearms to various persons of the town.
