Islamists had their fair share of fun on Ram Navami. From Gujarat to West Bengal; from Jharkhand to Madhya Pradesh – Islamists tried to derail the joyous celebration of Bhagwan Shri Ram’s arrival. They instigated Hindus celebrating Ram Navami and pelted stones at processions. Such incidents of violence have been witnessed in the past too. Meanwhile, liberals were found blaming ‘provocative songs’ played by Hindus during celebratory processions.
Islamists of Madhya Pradesh, however, stretched their luck too far. And now, they are being put through hell by the BJP government of the state, led by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan. The Madhya Pradesh chief minister said, “The Kharagone incident is unfortunate. Rioters won’t be spared. Strict action will be taken. They will not only be sent to jails but also made to pay for vandalising public as well as private property. We are forming a ‘claims tribunal’.”
Narottam Mishra Swings in Action
Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra on Monday lauded the efforts of the state police in foiling miscreants’ conspiracy, hours after a curfew was clamped down in Khargone city as violence occurred during the Ram Navami procession. The state’s Home Minister has also rolled out the infamous “bulldozers”, which are now punishing Islamists for their crimes.
The government of Madhya Pradesh started demolition of at least 50 “illegal” structures of people accused of pelting stones at a Ram Navami procession in Madhya Pradesh’s Khargone city, while the state government said the damage caused to public and private properties during the violence will be recovered from rioters.
According to Indore divisional commissioner Pawan Sharma, the illegal structures which are being demolished include homes and shops. Action has also been taken against four state government employees for spreading rumours about the communal violence in the city.

Sharma added, “The government has a zero-tolerance policy for rioting. So far, 84 persons have been arrested and 50 illegal constructions of these accused have been identified. The demolition of these illegal constructions has already started.”
Narottam Mishra said houses from where stones were hurled at the procession will be turned into rubble.
Islamists Understand the Language of Force
Islamists have been given the treatment they deserve and desire in Uttar Pradesh. The Yogi Adityanath government has always had a rock-solid and iron-fisted approach towards dealing with Islamists in the state. Whenever this breed has sought to disturb social peace and harmony in the state, the Yogi government has ensured that they are given the “bulldozer” treatment. Their homes and shops are demolished, and they are forced to cough up compensation for the victims of their violent acts.
Such action against Islamists over the past five years ensured that Ram Navami celebrations went on smoothly in Uttar Pradesh, despite it being a highly polarised state. Now, states like Madhya Pradesh are emulating the bulldozer formula. Soon, every BJP-ruled state will do so, and Islamists will find their street power getting severely challenged across India.
Islamists must be given a dose of their own medicine in every state. Hindus can proudly celebrate their festivals wherever they want and should not be targeted for the same. If they are, Islamists must be prepared to face the consequences of their actions, which can range from them being rendered jobless to them having their homes and businesses demolished.
