Islamabad, May 18 (KMS): A local administration in the BJP ruled India’s Uttar Pradesh state has defied a high court order and bulldozed a mosque, in one of the most inflammatory actions taken against a Muslim place of worship since the demolition of the Babri Mosque by a mob of Hindu fanatics in 1992, British newspaper The Guardian reported.

The mosque, in the city of Ram Sanehi Ghat in Uttar Pradesh, had stood for at least six decades, since the time of British rule, according to documents held by its committee, the newspaper said.

The UP chief minister is a hardcore Hindu called Yogi Adityanath, who is known for his vitriol against Muslims. He has made speeches laced with Islamophobia, referred to Muslims as terrorists, and passed legislation openly discriminatory to Muslims. »

#KhonmohMartyrsKilledInFakeEncounter

Srinagar, May 18 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the residents of Khonmoh in Srinagar have categorically refuted the Indian military authorities’ claim that the two youth martyred in the area, today, were militants killed in an encounter.

The residents told the media that it was a clear case of fake encounter as has been a practice of the Indian troops of killing the Kashmiri youth so far. The gunshot wounds on the dead bodies including on legs and feet also indicated that it was not a firefight. It appears that the youth have tried to flee and were shot in the legs and after getting hold of them they were killed.

The eyewitnesses said that the youth were unarmed and it was a false claim of the Indian army that two pistols and grenades were recovered from them. Had they been freedom fighters they would have proper fighting weapons in their possession, they added. »
