On Saturday, 9th September, in Kunihar, a valley town in the district of Solan, Himachal Pradesh, a Mosque suffered destruction as Hindu goons forcefully entered the area and vandalised the mosque, damaged its arches and the religious books kept there.
A mazaar was also present near the mosque, which got smashed and wrecked, wherein right after this, the goons levelled the whole area, constructed a temple and started aarti.
The locals have alleged that things under the Congress-ruling state have gone awry and worse than they were under BJP’s rule.
A video of the incident was shared by Waseem Akhtar Tyagi, a journalist at TheReportHindi.
हिमचाल प्रदेश के सोलन जनपद के कुन्हिार में हिंदूवादी गुंडों ने मस्जिद में तोड़-फोड़ की, मस्जिद की मेहराबों और धार्मिक किताबों को भी नुक़सान पहुंचाया। वहीं मस्जिद के बराबर में बनी दरगाह स्थित मज़ार को पूरी तरह से समतल कर वहां मंदिर बनाकर आरती शुरू कर दी। यह सब मोहब्ब की दुकान का… pic.twitter.com/p7iP7xHTam— Wasim Akram Tyagi (@WasimAkramTyagi) September 9, 2023
A family targeted
A man namely Mohammad Rafi, finally took the initiative and reported such incidents to the Himachal police, but as usual, no action took place.
After Rafi’s complaints, his family became a target of the Hindu goons, who threatened to kill his wife and kids with an axe.
Mohabbat ki dukan, a much-used phrase by Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, is being called a hoax as the ruling party is unable to contain and shut down such incidents in Himachal Pradesh.
The chief minister of Himachal Pradesh is also being called out for his silence over such incidents.
The Muslims fear for their lives and are treated worse than the second-class citizens of Himachal.
