A group of Hindu extremists blasted a Dargah using gunpowder in the Neemuch district of India’s Madhya Pradesh. The pilgrims and the caretaker of the Dargah Khadim Noor Shah were also assaulted with sticks, Maktoob Media reported.
As per the report, the perpetrators left a pamphlet that threatens to kill nearby Muslims if they attempt to rebuild the tomb.
While speaking to a local journalist Kashif Kalvi, Maktoob reported that the mob had about 20-25 men.
“They first tried to blow up the dargah with explosives, then tied Baba’s hands and feet, snatched the money and then threw him about 500m away from the dargah,” the journalist told Maktoob.
SP Suraj Verma confirmed the attack.
“Last night some unidentified people damaged the religious place by using gunpowder and beat up some people and drove them away. BDS squad has also been called to investigate the explosion,” Maktoob quoted Verma as having said.
“At present, a case has been registered against unidentified persons under sections 147, 148, 149, 295, 323, after the investigation as it is, will be done,” he added.
