“Just because the it is our community not the minority whose sentiments are hurt nobody is here , if it was Minority community’s issue you would see all MP’s & MLA’s and etc would have come here by now.How dare they insult our Gods ,this city has become Bhatkal of the North” ranted Siddalinga Mahaswami aka Andola Muthya on Oct 13, 2016 in an address to the Sene workers during a meeting held at Sri Sharanabasaveshwara Temple referring to the Gobar smearing on a Shri Ram cut out of Vijay Dashmi.
But now the Shahabad police have arrested 6 people a couple of them are said to have been in links with the ShriRamSene itself. The Gulbarga SP Mr N ShashiKumar said to reporters here that some men here were allegedly linked with RamSena and some other right wing organisations. we will look into these links and explore any conspiracy if possible .
N Shashi Kumar, in his narration said that a youth had posted an objectionable post about Muslim community, he was arrested after the Muslim community objected and lodged an FIR.The Accused did this to create communal tension , but we arrested him in 2 hours and that is why nothing much happened . So , On 12 Oct Some 6-8 people who are with different organisations planned this activity to create communal tensions.”
“I donot mean to say that ShriRamSena activists have done this, What i mean to say that some of these people have identified themselves with Shri Ramsena” He added.
“These people have done this thinking that they cant be identified and arrested and therefore there will be Major Communal tensions which was averted by police which worked hard to crack the case. I congratulate My team and people of both the communities who kept their faith in Police Department”.
Not the first time of Ramsena ,They have hoisted Pak Flag to create communal tensions: Locals
However, Given that the Shriramsena have a history of such activities in the past , it is very hard to rule out the involvement of the Shriramsena. an almost Identical case occurred on 1st Jan 2012 a Pakistani flag was hoisted in Sindagi Bijapur’s Mini vidhan saoudha, The Ramsena went on rampage and attacked buses and etc. Bijapur was termed Mini Pakistan and so on. But in the end it was the Ramsena activists who got arrested . Fast forward to 2016 same story was played in Shahabad .
