On Wednesday, Bhagwan Prshuram Yatra organized by Hindus in the Jurhera village of Kaman, Rajasthan was attacked by some persons from a specific community who pelted stones at the participants, leaving them injured.
According to an ETV Bharat report, the Yatra was organized on a massive scale on the afternoon of May 24. Amid the yatra, some of the shopkeepers from the specific community opposed the loud sound of the DJ system. The Hindu participants assured to reduce the volume of the DJ. In spite of this, the shopkeepers called some more people from their community and complained about the Yatra.
The mob belonging to the specific community then pelted stones at the Yatra and also used lathis to stop the Hindus from dancing to the DJ music. It is also alleged that a police constable named Shaheed provided the attackers with sticks, instead of trying to calm the situation.
The Hindus eventually stopped the Yatra and called the police. They also demanded strict action against the accused persons. The police took cognizance of the incident and assured the detention of the accused persons. The Yatra was then officially concluded.
Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghawal also commented on the issue and slammed the ruling party in the state for favouring and boosting the specific community for votes. He also indicated that the Congress party was torturing the Hindu society in the state of Rajasthan.
जहां दंगा वहां कांग्रेस!
कामां में भगवान श्री परशुराम जी की शोभायात्रा पर असामाजिक तत्वों द्वारा पत्थरबाजी राजस्थान सरकार की तालिबानी मानसिकता का प्रदर्शन है।
एक समुदाय विशेष के वोटों के लिए कांग्रेस हिन्दू समाज को प्रताड़ित करने में लगी है।
