Mumbai – In Sakinaka, Jarimari, a religious fanatic created religious discord and attacked a local Hindu family, severely injuring 5 Hindus. Guardian Minister Mangalprabhat Lodha visited the affected family and ordered the demolition of the suspect’s illegally constructed 5-story house, after which BMC demolished the illegal house.

Minister Lodha said, “Hindus are being harassed here. The same thing happened in Malvani. This must stop. We will take appropriate action. Injustice towards the sons of the soil will not be tolerated.”

The suspect has built an unauthorised 5-story building adjacent to the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport wall, causing distress to Hindus who regularly worship at a nearby temple. Citizens filed 40 complaints, but the Police ignored them.

Editorial Perspectives

  • Officers ignoring complaints against religious fanatics should be dismissed.
  • Were the Police and administration asleep till the illegal house was built ?
