Bangalore riots pre-planned by Islamic radicals, says Karnataka home minister
Basavaraj Bommai, home minister of Karnataka
It took just one hour for violence to spread in Bangalore on Tuesday that caused the death of 3 people, injuries to several, and mass destruction of public property. And that one hour started after a derogatory Facebook message towards the Prophet Muhammad which was posted by Naveen, the nephew of Srinivas Murthy, MLA of Congress party.
Is one hour enough to collect weapons like petrol bombs, stones, and the crowd of thousand people to start the violent act? Or it was a pre-planned conspiracy?
Basavaraj Bommai, home minister, Karnataka said that the riots in Bangalore were started by Islamic radicals. And investigations will be done to know how big this conspiracy was and what was the actual motive of the Islamic radicals.
According to Times Now, Bommai said, "There's an internal difference between the Congress MLA and his followers, there's a difference between him and the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), these all things are coming out. Other than that, it was part of a larger conspiracy and the role of SDPI coming out at large."
"We are investigating thoroughly and deeply” He adde,. "We have found in the video footage that people of SDPI (Social Democratic Party of India) from neighbouring regions also joined in the rioting."
Karnataka's Home Minister also added that the whole riot will be probed from all angles. And the Supreme Court guidelines will be followed to recover the damages from the rioters.
On Wednesday, CT Ravi, Karnataka minister said that the incident was the brainchild of SDPI, alleged to be a radical Islamist group, and the riots in Bangalore were "pre-planned."
A magisterial probe will be done to find out the total maths behind the riots that occurred in east Bangalore on Tuesday night, said B.S. Yediyurappa, Chief Minister of Karnataka. After a meeting with high-level authorities, a thorough investigation has been ordered by the district magistrate into the riots that happened in the police stations of Kadugodanahalli and Godavanavahalli jurisdiction, Bangalore.
