The way in which the English language media has been reporting the Muzzarnagar riots has been taking the art of misleading the public to a whole new level of shamelessness. The average Indian will not know the facts behind the riots, and we have the right to know the truth.
Please read the articles (at the following two links) and spread them far and wide so that the truth can be known:
The articles bring out the fact that there is an increasing tendency for the police in many areas (especially when the Samajwadi Party or the Congress are in power in the state) to refuse to take any sort of action against perpetrators of anti-social behaviour if the aggressors are Muslim. This is partly due to the fear of making the arrests in a Muslim dominated area, but more than this it is because the police fear the wrath of their political masters, who do not want to upset their carefully cultivated vote bank. Honest police officers risk the humiliation of being transferred, suspended or even prosecuted for simply trying to uphold the law.
Even though I don’t wish to condone any indiscriminate counter-violence by Hindus, the fact is that the largest factor which has caused the riots is exasperation at the refusal of the State machinery to intervene against anti-social elements in the Muslim community, either due to callousness, cowardice or communal vote-bank politics masquerading as secularism.
