Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh (CHAKRA)
There were Hindu – Muslim riots on the issue of installation of Ganesh idol at Ujjain. Two persons were killed and many got injured during these riots. Curfew has been imposed in the jurisdiction of 9 police stations in the city.
The trouble began on Friday night in the Daulatgunj old town area of Ujjain after a Hindu shop-owner installed an idol of Ganesh at his store, which is
adjacent to a mosque. Police said that some members of the Muslim community objected to it since the idol is un-Islamic and was near the Mosque where
Muslims were praying. Although the idol was on the shopkeepers property,police urged the shopkeeper to shift the idol to another spot to calm the Muslim mob.
