Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, who came under all-round attack for his government’s handling of the communal violence here in September that killed 62 people, has said those responsible for the fresh bout of violence in two neighbouring villages of Muzaffarnagar would be brought to justice. The law would take its course. No one was above the law, he told reporters in Kannauj on Thursday.

Eight persons have been arrested and cases registered against 15 people in connection with Wednesday’s violence in the Budhana area, in which three men were killed. A woman was also killed and her husband injured when some unidentified people attacked them in the Thugana area but police said it was not known if there was a communal angle to the incident.

Mohammad Ali reports from Hussainpur:

Violence occurred at Muhammadpur Rai Singh and Hussainpur villages even as efforts were being made to bring about reconciliation between Jats and Muslims.

Victims say the clashes could have been prevented had the FIRs on last month’s communal riots been acted upon.

Last month, 62 persons died in riots in this western U.P. district.

Members of the minority community at Muhammadpur Rai Singh then fled to Hussainpur and are now being sheltered by its villagers.

Hussainpur, a predominantly Muslim village with just over a 20 per cent Hindu population, had not witnessed untoward incidents during last month’s violence.

What about the person who forced the police to release the culprits of first riots which precipitated into chaos and present cycle of violence, will akilesh yadav government act against those perpetrators and prove they are not anyway connected to the first Muzaffarnagar riots.

Akhilesh is inefficient as he has been proving on a day-to-day basis and is deplorable, considering the fact that he had inherited the mantle of a top state of India throgh a cake-walk as his father didn't contest him but indeed let him to rein-in. Unfortunately, he is spoiling his own golden chances of partaking in the history of our country. Alas !What a poor vision of his !

Don't make threatening noises, Akhilesh.
It is your job to apprehend the culprits and stand them before the law of the land.
It WAS you job to prevent such carnage, in which you failed miserably.
The political thinking that few deaths from a community will swing the votes to your favaour is deplorable. Human beings are not cannon fodder.

Roll up your sleeves, sack your Home Minster and creack the whip given to you by the people.

If you cannot hand it over to one who can.

Since our independence virtual boundaries of hatred against religion,
cast, creed, profession, income level have been growing and remains
unsolved and unguarded.Millions of citizens have lost precious lives
over these communal boundaries. It high time that the law makers shift
their attention towards these boundaries rather than focusing the
international boundaries and spending billions and not saving the lives
of our citizens.
