Foreigners who attended Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin Markaz to be tried for violating visa rule

Sirf News has accessed from the police the records of many Tablighi Jamaat associates who have returned to or been to the Northeast and non-Muslims who passed through the area and returned to the states of the region

Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

After Coimbatore, neighbouring Tiruppur district in Tamil Nadu is witnessing a communal flare-up with the news of an attack on the head of a Hindu organisation. While the incident occurred Tuesday night, the area has not yet returned to normalcy. According to sources, Bhagawan Nandu, the deputy head of Tirupur north of Hindu Makkal Kanchi, was brutally attacked early this week.

Nandu has an electric goods shop in Kanakampalayam. He was returning home after downing the shutter on Tuesday night. On his way home, seven people on bikes surrounded Nandu. They first threatened Nandu and then attacked him with sharp weapons.

When people rushed to the spot on hearing Nandu’s cries for help, the attackers fled. The Hindu Makkal Kanchi deputy head was later taken to the hospital.

The news of the attack on an office-bearer of a Hindu organisation spread like wildfire in the Tiruppur district. A large number of people reached the hospital. The police rushed to the spot too with an aim to pacifying the crowd. The Perunamallur police station has registered a case against unknown people for the assault and launched a search operation.

Five days ago, a gang of social activists from Kerala was reported to come in Coimbatore and adjoining districts. According to the information received by the police, these gangs from Kerala venture into Tamil Nadu to target Hindu organisations and pro-Hindu political parties every now and then.

The police are on an alert mode in Tiruppur where Muslims have been agitating against the CAA for more than a month.

The previous Saturday, a battalion of Rapid Action Force (RAF) had marched under the leadership of Commander Singaravelu in the area. Armed jawans marched through different parts of the city and reached the old bus stand. Two riot police vehicles accompanying the RAF and city police personnel led by Deputy Commissioner of Police Badrinarayan shelled tear gas at the demonstrators who were agitated by frequent attacks on Hindu leaders.
