Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

“2 killed as police open fire in Varanasi” over holi colors again.

Clashes over a holi colors splashed on the wall of a mosque.  The color should not have been splashed on the walls, and also the retort should not have been throwing stones on a locality. I think we can be a bit more accomodative….or may be not, its India after all.

Two persons were killed and at least 14 others, including half a dozen policemen, injured on Wednesday as police opened fire to disperse members of two communities who clashed in Varanasi during Holi celebrations.

SSP Varanasi P C Meena said police opened fire to quell violence that broke out during Holi celebrations near Gausiya Masjid in Bajardiha locality under the Bhelupur police station in Varanasi.

Those killed have been identified as Shafikur and Md Moin of Bajardiha area. Their bodies have been sent for postmortem.

“Trouble started after some Muslim youth saw a splash of colour on the wall of the Gausia mosque and they pelted stones on a nearby Hindu locality. Police immediately swung into action and surrounded the area and fired teargas to control the situation,” Meena said.

Eight-year-old shot at for spraying colours on man

By shooting an eight year old kid for pouring color on him, this mad man (fisherman with a  gun??? Sounds a bit suspicious too)  took humanity to ridiculous depths.  I will not be surprised if we have people defending Mohammad Rashid saying that the kid was trying to impose her religion on him in the pretext of holi with the help of the “saffron brigade”.

Long live india and its “secularism”.

Shahdol (MP): An eight-year-old girl was on Wednesday shot at and injured by a person allegedly peeved over her for pouring colour over him on the occasion of Holi at Parmaniya Khurd village here, police said.

Shelly Gupta suffered bullet injuries in both her legs when a fisherman, Mohammad Rashid of Singpur village, opened fire with his gun at a group of children celebrating Holi as they had supposedly sprayed him with colours, Kotwali Police Station In-charge Vijay Pratap Singh told PTI.

She was admitted to the Shahdol District Hospital for treatment where her condition was stated to be out of danger,he said.

Hearing gunshots, the villagers gathered and beat up Rashid and later handed him over to police, Singh said.

A case has been registered against the accused, Pratap added
