Chant Allah Hu Akbar if You Want to Cross the Mira Road in Mumbai

The attackers forced Hindus to chant 'Allah Hu Akbar.' When they refused, the situation escalated, leading to deadly attacks.


Mira Road has been trending across the nation all for the wrong reasons. It all began on Sunday night, a few hours before the sacred Ram Mandir Pran Pratistha. Around 11 pm, a mob of Muslims lost their cool and retorted to attacking a small group of people who were crossing through the Naya Nagar area of Mira Road. What ignited their anger was the Bhagwa Dhwaj that was flying on top of their vehicles.

According to eyewitnesses, the mob of hundreds of Muslims attacked the Hindus, resulting in injuries and damage to vehicles. The mode of attack was the tried and tested ‘Stone Pelting’, which has become synonymous with Muslim’s way of expressing disapproval of anything that doesn’t align with their faith.

Amid the chaos, a victim of the episode claimed that the attackers forced him and others to chant ‘Allah Hu Akbar.’ When they refused, the situation escalated, leading to deadly attacks. The victim further accused the attackers of trampling and spitting on the bhagwa flags which had images of Hindu sacred deities.

Such incidents have unfortunately become common in the Mira Road region of Mumbai, a Muslim-dominated area.

Promptly responding to the situation, the police took action, arresting five individuals involved in the clash. The Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) confirmed the arrests and stated that an investigation is underway to address the dispute.

This incident is a matter of serious concern for all members of society. It calls for introspection on the level of tolerance within the Muslim community. Everyone needs to acknowledge and respect the fact that people from diverse faiths have the right to express their freedom of religion. We hardly come across such unpleasant incidents during a Muharram julus or while the holy month of Ramadan. This raises an important question – is the Muslim society becoming more intolerant to the resurrection of the Sanatana Dharma in India?
