published on November 15, 2009

Kasargode: Followers of Jinnah – Fanatic Muslim League terrorists revealed their true colours once again by challenging the law and order in the state and attacking Temples and selective shops of  Hindus.

Tension still prevails in Kasaragod town and adjoining areas even late Sunday evening after the violent incidents that took place amidst a programme in which top leaders of the Muslim league took part.

The Muslim league activists assembled in Kasargode inorder to felicitate their State leaders including president Panakkad Hyderali Shihan Thangal and general secretary PK Kunhalikkutty.

The tension began as police questioned the league activists who had cleared the posters and banners of BJP and CPM from the area during the vehicle rally before the meeting. League activists hurled stones at police when they were questioned.

League terrorists then attacked Shanmugha Bhajana Mandir near New Busstand and destroyed the Upadevatha Vigrahas in the temple.Shops of many Hindus including Sree Krishna hardwares were destroyed after looting.Many vehicles including police have been vandalized. The police didn’t have sufficient forces to control the mob.

As the dispute intensified, the Muslim League workers resorted to stone-pelting against the police, who did not have the sufficient strength to counter the attack. Several police personnel, including Siby Thomas, Sub-Inspector, Badiyadukka suffered injuries in the stone-pelting.

The police, who could not match the Muslim League activists in strength, had to resort to lathi-charge to control the mob, and soon the situation developed into a face-to-face confrontation between the two sides. The police lobbed tear-gas shells and stun and smoke grenades to disperse the violent activists.

As the situation grew worse towards late vening, some activists tried to attack the vehicle of the Superintendent of Police, to stop which the police were forced to open fire. Kaithamukku Shafeeq, who was seriously injured in the firing, was taken to the district hospital, but he succumbed to the injuries. Director General of Police Jacob Punnoose confirmed the police firing.

Muhammad Ahzar, another Muslim League activist, was stabbed by unknown assailant(s) at Karanthakkad, away from the town centre, late in the evening. Reports said that he had not attended the programme in Kasaragod, but was returning home after closing his shop, when he was stabbed from behind. He died on way to the hospital in Mangalore.

Congress leaders Umman Chandi and Ramesh Chennithala immediately came to justify the attacks of these Jihadis and called for Hartal in Kasargode today.
