Baha'i burial place vandalised

The only burial place of the Baha'i community in Rajasthan was attacked by a mob led by the head of Shri Ram Ki Nangal village.

On Friday, a mob led by Nathu Jangid attacked the watchman of the burial place, damaged his house, and later damaged the doors, windows, and other parts of a prayer hall which was being constructed on the premises of the burial place, Niyaz Alam from Shri Ram Ki Nangal said.

“The Jaipur Development Authority had allotted us land for the burial place in the year 2002. However, Nathu Jangid fought the Panchayat elections on the premise that he would get the burial ground removed,” Mr. Alam said. The police have registered a case.
