AIADMK urges Centre to seek report on mosque attack in Pondy

AIADMK today urged the Centre to intervene and seek a detailed report from the Puducherry government on the alleged attack on a mosque near here.

Puducherry: AIADMK today urged the Centre to intervene and seek a detailed report from the Puducherry government on the alleged attack on a mosque near here.

"The Centre should seek a detailed report?from the Puducherry government,?particularly, the breach of the ban on permission for meetings near places of worship," AIADMK legislature wing leader A Anbalagan told reporters here.

Stating that police should have denied permission to the Hindu Munnani to hold a meeting near the mosque, he said the government should conduct a probe as to how the standing order banning?meetings near places of worship was 'breached'.

Criticising Chief Minister V Narayanasamy, the AIADMK MLA said, instead of ordering a probe into the incidents, he had said Goondas Act would be invoked against those fanning communal clashes, which was not sufficient.

CPI (M) Puducherry unit Secretary R Rajangam criticised the 'failure of the police to prevent attack on mosque' here and sought a high-level probe into the incident.

The incident occurred on Sunday when a public meeting was organised by the Hindu Munnani near the mosque in Orleanpet.

After the meeting got over, a group of unidentified people had allegedly damaged the glass panes on the ground and first floors of the mosque, prompting Narayanasamy to order a probe into the incident.

According to Hindu Munnani, while the meeting was in progress an unidentified person had allegedly hurled a bottle from?a corner targetting the stage, injuring three persons.

Complaints and counter-complaints had been filed by the Munnani and the mosque authorities.
