Refrain from framing innocents, COVA tells govt
Demanding that the culprits should be taken to task immediately, a COVA peace delegation maintained that some people had tried to communalise the situation at Tandur in Andhra Pradesh.
LED BY Nanak Singh Nister, President, COVA, the peace delegation met people from both the communities and concerned citizens. The delegation, according to a press release, arrived at a conclusion that the happenings at the Tandur were a deliberate attempt by some people to communalise the situation for their own gains.
The team appealed to the administration to deliver justice quickly. “To control the situation, it should take stringent action against the culprits and punish them to deter from such activities,” read a press release. The team also requested the administration to ensure that the innocents are not harassed unnecessarily.
In recent times, communal elements have tried their best to play hate games by desecrating religious places in Hyderabad but could not succeed as the peace loving people of the city observed restraint and applied their wisdom in not giving any space to such anti-social elements.
They appealed to the people of Tandur and surrounding areas in particular and people all over in general to maintain peace and harmony and 'do not allow communal elements to exploit religious sentiment'.
