In a statement Amjed Ullah Khan (Spokesman) MBT took strong note of arrest of 14 muslims under serious sections by Narnoor police and sending them to Judicial Custody.
Mr Khan said if Mr Prem Kumar (CI) Narnoor Police Station has acted immediately and arrested local BJP leader Bhikshapati and others and sent them all to jail as soon as he came to know about their intention of creating communal tension in Narnoor Mandal of Adilabad District.
“The naming a locality as Balaji Nagar, when there exist 35 houses belong to muslim community and already the said area is named as Eid Gah Nagar in all government records today’s incident would have been avoided,” said, MBT spokesperson.
Mr Khan said the Narnoor Police was a mute spectator until the BJP workers climbed the two years old Arc of a muslim locality and named it “Balaji Nagar” and when muslims objected 14 of them arrested under serious charges in FIR No: 51/2023, U/s 147, 307, 324 r/w 149 IPC, Sec 3(r)(s) of SC/ST (POA) Amendment Act-2005 and sent to Judicial Custody.
Mr Khan questioned, “What was the reason for arresting fourteen muslims under serious charges like Sec 307 & SC/ST Act which can keep them in Jail for nearly one month when the entire issue was started by BJP workers themselves to creat communal tension,”
Mr Khan also questioned, “Has any muslim gone to a hindu locality and forcibly wrote a muslim name on their locality Arc to hurt them or it was BJP workers who did this to hurt muslims sentiments and creat communal tension and very sad to note that police acted against muslims by arresting them under serious charges,”
Amjedullah Khan demanded that CM KCR should take note of above incident should order an inquiry by a senior police officer into the entire incident of intentionally naming a muslim locality by a hindu name to creat communal tension by BJP and the role of Prem Kumar, CI Narnoor PS on being silent on entire.
“CM KCR should also take note of two communal incidents happening in a same District in one month and in both Echoda and Narnoor incidents muslims being attacked or their sentiments being hurted intentionally and muslims themselves being arrested in serious non-bailable sections is a part of larger conspiracy to drift away muslims from BRS party,” He added.
