Clarion India

NEW DELHI – An under-construction mosque was vandalised by members of Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) in the Banda district of Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday.

According to reports, the Hindutva mob claimed that a second floor was being constructed in the mosque which they claimed was illegal. They threw away mosque belongings on the road resulting in a huge traffic jam.

VHP district president Chandramohan Bedi alleged that the administration had given a nod for a renovation of the mosque. “The mosque was supposed to get renovated, not carry out new constructions. We will not allow this,” he said.

Police officials who were called to control the commotion however stood as mute spectators. The hooliganism continued for 30 minutes.

Banda police have released a video from its official Twitter account stating that investigations are being carried out.
