The house of a Muslim politician is also being demolished in Prayag Raj on Sunday after the houses of two Muslims were demolished by the authorities in Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India.

The politicians are accused of fomenting violent protests on Friday over blasphemy.

In the videos shared on social media, the exterior of the house of Javed Mohammad, a politician belonging to Prayag Raj, can be seen falling with the help of a bulldozer.

Police allege that Javed Mohammad is the “mastermind” of Friday’s protests. It is believed that two people were killed in these demonstrations in Prayag Raj.

Police and municipal teams can be seen inside the house in videos shared by journalists outside the house, while household items are scattered. Authorities also threw out some furniture and other items at the house.

It may be recalled that Javed Mohammad is a member of the Welfare Party of India while his daughter Aafreen Fatima is known as a student leader at Jawaharlal University, Delhi.

The municipal agency alleges that the ground floor and first floor constructions of Javed Mohammad’s residence are illegal and demolition notice was given a few hours ago.

According to NDTV, a notice outside Javed Mohammad’s residence claimed that he had not responded to the demolition notice sent in May this year.

According to the notice, Javed Mohammad was asked to demolish the illegal structures by June 9 and at 11 am on June 12, he was given a notice to vacate his residence.

Earlier on June 9, two houses were demolished in Saharanpur in the presence of police on charges of illegal construction.

Similar demolitions took place in Kanpur, where protests took place on June 3.

Police in Indian-administered Kashmir have arrested a young man for threatening to “behead” a former ruling party spokesman.

According to the news agency Reuters, the young man had published a threatening video on YouTube, which has been removed by the authorities to stop the wave of unrest in the country.

Muslims began protesting this week after anti-Islamic remarks by government members of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

BJP spokesperson Nopur Sharma was suspended following the incident earlier this month, while another leader, Naveen Kumar Jundal, was also expelled after making a controversial statement about the private life of the Prophet of Islam.

After the incidents, a wave of anger was witnessed in many Muslim countries and the Modi government is also facing a difficult situation at the diplomatic level.

Cases were also registered against both the BJP leaders.

Protests and clashes erupted in the country following the remarks. Last week, two youths were killed in clashes with police during a protest in the eastern city of Ranchi, while more than 300 people were arrested by police in the riots in the northern state of Upper Pradesh.

Similarly, in West Bengal, the authorities have enacted an emergency law which will ban gatherings till June 16.

At least 70 people were arrested on charges of rioting and disturbing public order.

Internet services were suspended for 48 hours after the latest sectarian riots.

The BJP has instructed senior members to exercise “extreme caution” when discussing religious matters in public places.
