Ramnavami procession: Fresh violence erupts in Asansol-Raniganj

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Wednesday asked for a report from the West Bengal government on incidents of arson and violence during Ram Navami processions in the last two days, officials said.

Mamata Banerjee had also directed the police not to permit any organisation to hold processions displaying arms during Ram Navami on Sunday, barring those who have been doing it for a long time.

"A case has been lodged against Locket Chatterjee, which also includes non-bailable sections for participating in a rally with arms", Birbhum Superintendent of Police (SP) N Sudheer Kumar said.

Condemning the incidents of violence, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had asserted that such behaviour was unacceptable in her state, and said her government would strongly deal with each miscreant.

"The law will take its own course".

"Through media, we appeal people to not trust rumours, the situation is under control".

As per a report, violence erupted on March 26 morning when stones were pelted at a Ram Navami procession in Hill Bustee area. An FIR was filed against West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh for spearheading a Ram Navmi rally by wielding a sword in his constituency Kharagpur of West Midnapore district. In Kolkata several rallies were taken out by the RSS-backed Ram Navami Udjapan Samity (Celebration Committee). Hindu religion has been practised by millions since ages. It is not to kill people...

"They are trying to win the entire India through bloodshed".

In his message, the governor observed that the celebration of festivals, which are an important part of India's glorious heritage, strengthens communal harmony and brotherhood. These trouble-mongers holding pistols and swords are resorting to hooliganism. We celebrate Durga Puja, Kali Puja, Ganpati puja peacefully. "We also celebrate Ramzan, Christmas", she stated.

The state government did not allow armed processions yesterday in the name of Lord Ram.
