10 Mar. On this auspicious day of Eid-Milad, there is some tension in Bantwal. It is unfortunate that some elements refuse peace a chance and take innocent and poor to ransom.
It happened on 8th March – someone’s car was stoned. And that became a community issue. Suddenly, people owing allegiance went berserk – stoning and forcibly downing shutters.
In the meantime, someone was arrested on suspicion. And that person’s friends went on demanding that he be released, though he was not released.
Now Bantwal and surrounding areas are under tension I appeal for peace and understanding. During these times of elections, people of all castes, religions and groups should stand together to defeat corrupt and inefficient persons.
