Belgaum: A clear case of mistaken identity by activists of the pro-Hindu organisations has landed Sri Rama Sene in trouble. After indulging in violence to separate a boy and girl who the activists mistook for Hindu and Muslim, it came to light that the girl was actually from the Christian community.
When it became evident that the girl did not hail from the majority community, the violence in Belgaum stopped suddenly even as the police fearing the clashes, imposed prohibitory orders on Friday morning in Belgaum. Chief Minister who was briefed about the communal clashes that took place in Belgaum on Wednesday and Thursday, is under pressure to ban Sri Rama Sene.
During the preliminary investigations, the police found that the girl was a Christian and a friend of the boy for sometime. A group of activists, according to sources, believed that the meeting of the boy and girl was a case of ‘love Jihad’ and decided to separate them. Among the 12 people arrested so far in connection with the violence, three hailed from Sri Ram Sena while others are from a minority community.
