Mosque demolition: Jungpura gets back to normal, Pushp Vihar tense

Normalcy returned to the south-east Delhi locality where a mosque was demolished by a civic body after government allowed devotees to offer prayers at the site on Saturday.



New Delhi: Normalcy returned to the
south-east Delhi locality where a mosque was demolished by a
civic body after government allowed devotees to offer prayers
at the site on Saturday but razing of a temple raised tempers in
another locality with protestors blocking traffic.
It was peaceful in Jungpura throughout the day where
Delhi Development Authority (DDA) demolished a mosque
Wednesday morning, prompting devotees to indulge in violence
and block traffic. However, tension was defused after
government allowed devotees to offer prayers at the site.

However, demolition of a temple in Pushp Vihar in
south Delhi by Central Public Works Department (CPWD), also on
Wednesday, raised tension in the area as VHP and RSS staged a
protest and blocked the BRT Corridor for nearly two hours
causing massive traffic jams.
VHP, RSS and BJP activists staged a dharna near Sheikh
Sarai on BRT corridor which led to huge traffic jams. The
protestors demanded that the temple be rebuilt within seven
days.

Meanwhile, police registered a case of encroachment of
the site of demolished mosque on a complaint filed by DDA.
Devotees had yesterday erected a makeshift structure there.
