In Muslim areas like Hyderabad in India, Hindus are not allowed to make even temporary sheds for the use of festivals.
Temporary Shed for festival removed from Bhagyalaxmi Temple in front of Charminar at Hyderabad.
‘Expansion’ row adds to tension in Old City of Hyderabad.
Police took as many as 20 persons into preventive custody after a mild clash took place between the two groups.
“At around 10 am on Thursday, devotees and Bajrang Dal activists reached the temple and staged a dharna alleging that a section of people deliberately opposed decoration works at the place of worship. Police rushed to the spot and took 20 persons into preventive custody,” deputy commissioner of police (DCP) Akun Sabharwal said, adding that the arrested persons were shifted to Kanchanbagh and Bahadurapura police stations.
According to police, the management was trying to build a temporary shed in front of the temple for the festival, when some MIM party activists, led by Charminar MLA Syed Ahmed Pasha Qadri, rushed to the spot and objected to the construction, alleging that the space near the Charminar was being encroached upon.
Heated argument ensued between the two groups after which police rushed to the spot and dispersed the mob.
Heavy security was deployed in and around the Charminar to prevent untoward incidents as communal clashes have been taking place in the Old City for a few days. Section 144 is still clamped in the Old City
Bajrang Dal Alleges Political Hand
Bajrang Dal city convener Bharath Vamsi alleged that the police deliberately arrested their activists and devotees under the influence of some political parties in the Old city. “Devotees celebrate Bhagyalaxmi festival every year.
As the festival is round the corner, the temple committee started decorating and constructing a small shed temporarily in front of its premises. What’s the wrong in it?” Vamsi questioned. He demanded that the police release the arrested devotees and Bajrang Dal activists. [Courtesy: New Indian Express]

2nd Nov, 2012 :: Today some miscreants tried to create trouble after Friday prayers at Charminar. Some miscreants went ahead and set ablaze ACP’s vehicle on fire (even police is not safe from their terror). But thanks to CRPF and RAF, a heavy damage was avoided by the security contingent. As everyone expected of Islamic nuisance after Friday prayers, they withstood the expectations. It is a request to all Hindus to be safe and don’t spread rumours unless confirmed. Be safe and be ready.
