Bengaluru: The vandalism and violence in Bengaluru on August 11 saw a Muslim mob running amok, attacking policemen at will, setting fire to vehicles and the house of the local Congress MLA Akhanda Srininvasa Murthy as the mob felt aggrieved at alleged offensive remarks against Prophet Muhamad on WhatsApp. 

Around a thousand youth, gathered and went berserk, throwing all norms of gentlemanly behaviour to the dustbin. 


Now, Bengaluru South MP Tejasvi Surya, has written a letter to Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa, urging him to confiscate the properties of the rioters. 

He said, “I request Sri @BSYBJP to confiscate and attach properties of the rioters and compensate losses to public property in same way as Sri @myogiadityanath govt did in UP. Bengaluru is known for its peace and harmonious society.” 

We must protect this strength of our city at all costs. 


Such incidents really leave a bad taste and cost the city its image. 

How Yogi Adityanath had dealt with rioters: 


In an unprecedented move, the Uttar Pradesh BJP government, led by Yogi Adityanath, had put up a hoarding detailing the names and addresses of anti-CAA rioters and vandals and the sum they owe as damages caused to properties.

A popular website had then added that the hoardings erected by the Lucknow police also contained the residential address of each rioter.

The rioters had been instructed to pay up the amount they owed within 30 days or face seizure and auction of their properties.

It might also be recalled that the District Administration had issued notices to rioters.

The anti-CAA riots in Uttar Pradesh saw a lot of young men and women participate in it. Unfortunately, many antisocial elements, in the garb of peaceful rioters, ran riot and destroyed public and private properties with disdain.

Earlier, in Mangaluru, Karnataka, anti-CAA protesters had resorted to such hooliganism as well.
