Communal violence in Hyderabad over desecration of a temple

Siasat, an online portal, reports:

Hyderabad, April 08:
There was a sudden outburst of Communal Violence last night in Kurmaguda area of Sayeedabad police station.

According to the reports the legs of a Cow legs were thrown in a nearly temple last night. The local Hindus got agitated and started stopping the traffic this morning.

A Burqa clad Muslim woman was beaten up severely. Ten houses were set ablaze and vehicles were burnt.

As a precautionary measure, police blocked the traffic. The situation is said to be under control.


And this is how Hindu, the great secular news paper, reported : [ ]

Tension gripped parts of old city of Hyderabad after groups of people belonging to different communities hurled stones in Saidabad and surrounding localities on Sunday morning. Scores of RTC buses and three vehicles belonging to media organisations were damaged in stone pelting incidents.

Police contingents were moved into sensitive areas to quell rioting mobs. At least in two places -- bank colony near Saidabad and on Chanchalguda - Kurmaguda road, a motorcycle and an autorickshaw were damaged by unruly mobs.

Trouble broke out in the morning after devotees accused the people of other community of desecrating a religious place. As rumours spread, mobs went on a rampage showering stones on police and on houses.

Localities in and around Saidabad, Bank colony, Poosala Basti, Kurmaguda and Champapet are reported to be tense. Life is normal in other parts of the city.

See any difference?

Such is the standard of secular and English news papers (media) in India. And this is not the first time and will not be the last time.

In fact, in the last 3 months I have noticed 7 or 8 temples were desecrated by Muslims in India and only one incident was reported, that too by Pioneer.

OPINION:  Are Hindus justified in their actions taking to streets and turning violent? Can their action of beating a Muslim woman be justified - this can never be justified under any circumstance in my view - ?

Lets remember that two wrongs don't make a right. 

And there are other factors that can not be ignored - if we want to make an unbiased opinion - in a rational world like media not reporting the incidents in faithful  manner. And you  make your opinion.
