DC appeals for peaceful Eid celebration, warns Gau-Rakshaks to not take law in their hands
Cachar district administration was heavily criticised for its lack of preparation during the Manasha Puja and idol immersion. Well, the criticism did touch a few raw nerve and the administration on the eve of Id-Ul-Zoha (Bakri Eid) organised a special meeting chaired by deputy commissioner S Lakshmanan to ensure peace and prosperous celebration on the auspicious occasion.
In recent past, Barak Valley witnessed several episodes of communal tensions between different communities and taking all of it into account, the administration advised not to sacrifice animal in public places. The administration feels that the holy occasion of sacrifice must not hurt feelings of other communities, and at the same time urged people to volunteer in peaceful celebrations.
The deputy commissioner also mentioned that the administration will take necessary steps to ensure proper functioning of public transport. Lakshmanan warned the Gau-Rakshaks to not take law on their own hands under any circumstances. He also suggested to bury the mortal remains of sacrificed animals to avoid tension.
Time and again Lakshmanan clarified the administration’s stance that they want a peaceful celebration of the auspicious occasion, at the same time they won’t tolerate anyone taking law in their own hands or hurting others’ religious values. He mentioned that security personals are already deployed in sensitive areas and police is keeping a close eye on the situation. Apart from that if anyone has any complaints, instead of creating a ruckus one must bring it to the notice of the administration. One can dial 03842 246892 or 7086021472 to reach out to the police control room and 03852239249 to speak to the office of deputy commissioner.
Apart from DC S Lakshmanan, SP Rakesh Roushan, senior spokespersons of various organisations, Dulal Mitra, Chunilal Bhattacharjee, Abdul Noor Choudhury, Haran Dey, Imaduddin Bulbul, Shamshur Rahman Choudhury, Ajit Chakraborty, Hirak Choudhury among other intellectuals and social activists were present in the meeting.
