Communal tension has been prevailing in the Jahangirpuri area for several days now. The tension erupted on April 16 during a Hanuman Jayanti procession in which 9 people including 8 policemen were injured. Following the incident, more and more people are injured in several communal disputes that have happened the place.
In order to sort out the tension and make peace prevail yet again, members from both the Hindu and Muslim communities took out ‘Tiranga Yatra’ on Sunday evening at the communal violence-hit Jahangirpuri area of the national capital. The police, in heavy numbers, could be seen guarding and providing security to the procession of 100 people that had 50 members each from both the communities.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Usha Rangnani, who accompanied the procession, requested all the people of the area to maintain public tranquillity and peace. “The people have themselves given this idea of carrying out a Tiranga Yatra to spread the message of communal harmony. I welcome this move and expect that normalcy will return soon,” she said.
She further said that the situation is completely under control and the people are themselves coming forward to have a dialogue with the Delhi Police.
