Liberals want you to believe that an anti-Muslim riot is afoot in BJP-ruled Tripura. Mind you, the crucial Uttar Pradesh elections are approaching very soon. Along with it, states like Punjab, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh are also headed to polls. So, it makes complete sense for the opposition and its stooges in the media to fabricate stories of anti-Muslim violence rocking parts of India. This time, the intended target is Tripura, because liberals want you to believe that a peaceful north-eastern state, ruled by communists for decades, is now taking the turn towards violence under the BJP, and that the Muslims are at the receiving end of it all.

After incidents of communal tension were reported in Tripura over fake news of mosques being burnt, the state government issued prohibitory orders under section 144 in the Dharmanagar sub-division in north Tripura district and Kailashahar sub-divisions in Unokoti district in Tripura. It all started in Rowa in the Panisagar subdivision of Dharmanagar district, where VHP was leading the march for the rights of Hindus who have been persecuted in Bangladesh during the recent Durga Puja attacks. While some elements in the mob did attempt to attack the mosque, they were quickly told to fall back in line.
However, by then, the fake news had spread like a wildfire that Hindus had torched a mosque. Soon, thousands of Muslims converged, and in areas like Kadamtala, attacked houses, shops, and vehicles belonging to Hindus; videos of which have also gone viral on social media platforms. In essence, the mosque was never touched, but liberals believe it has been burnt to ashes. On the basis of a fake news, Hindus were attacked by Islamists. The propaganda outburst seems to be the handiwork of Islamists across India, and chief minister Biplab Deb is willing to have none of it.
Tripura goes after Islamist propagandists:
Tripura Police IGP Saurabh Tripathi has now come out and warned Islamists that fake news spread by them will not be allowed to pass, and that the state government will come cracking down hard on them if they resort to spreading lies on social media. “Fake news and rumours are being spread in regard to yesterday’s incident at Panisagar. No fire incident took place at any mosque. A case has been registered against the viral fake posts on social media platforms,” Tripathi said.

Speaking to ANI, he added, “Anti-national and mischievous elements on Twitter and Facebook are spreading fake news and rumours. The videos and photos that are being spread have no connection with the Panisagar incident. No fire incident took place at any mosque”.
Tripura goes to polls in 2023, and chief minister Biplab Deb is ensuring that no anti-social element gets a free run in the state. Islamists might have thought they would be able to milk the stray incidents of violence, but the state government is ensuring that none of that happens. Biplab Deb is willing to shut down the entire propaganda machinery of Islamists.
