SSPs house vandalised in Saharanpur – Why are goons roaming freely on UPs streets?
Mob violence is completely against the law and must be curbed as soon as possible to save the country. People are becoming judgmental and willingly ready to take law in to their own hands by pronouncing judgments rather than allowing law agencies to take measures.

It all started with mob violence against the minorities and Dalits and due to laxity of various governments who failed to take strong measures against those goons, they got further emboldened and on Thursdayattacked Saharanpur SSP Love Kumar's house.

Wife of the IPS officer got frightened because of the violence she witnessed at her home, the SSP's official residence in Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh.

"I am the wife of an IPS. I have been with my husband in sensitive districts like Aligarh, Gorakhpur, and Moradabad. I am frightened of what I had seen yesterday at the SSP house which is considered to be the safest. I cannot forget the horror that I saw in the eyes of my 6 & 8-years-old children. They never cried and wept so profusely as in that evening," said the wife of SSP Love Kumar, according to reports published in Aajtak.

BJP's sitting MP from Saharanpur Raghav Lakhanpal Sharma had carried out a procession with his supporters on Ambedkar Jayanti on Thursday in Saharanpur even after not getting the requisite permissions from authorities.

According to a report of Times of India, Love Kumar said, "It came to my knowledge that there was no precedent of carrying out any procession on the occasion of Ambedkar Jayanti in the village. So, we didn't allow this time too."

He further added that he came to know that the mob was made up of outsiders as no Dalit from the village participated in that procession whereas the MP and his supporters were pressurising them to open fire at the stone pelters.

He said, "As a responsible administrative official, I know very well when and what action should be taken to deal with any given situation. When I didn't pay heed to them, they provoked us by calling us cowards. Later, rioters moved to my house, vandalized my nameplate and CCTV cameras installed over there. They also turned over chairs in my office and tore down the maps hanging there."

However, representatives of the BJP MP have claimed that holding peaceful procession is their constitutional right and on that very day almost 80 per cent of the procession had passed of peacefully, until some antisocial elements from a particular community started pelting stones.

They have also claimed that they had reached the SSP office to register their grievances and the people who vandalised the office of SSP were not their men.

Police have registered an FIR against the people of both the communities in connection with the violence, apart from Lakhanpal and former BJP MLA Rajiv Gumber.

IPS association has condemned the attack on SSP residence by tweeting, "Targeting #SSP house unfortunate. It demoralises officer, traumatises family. Hope government uphold morale of police."

A Facebook page called "I Support SSP Love Kumar" has also been started in support of the senior superintendent of police Love Kumar. People are showing their support for this upright IPS officer as he has always helped people throughout his various postings in different districts.

This is really a very unfortunate incident. No government can protect common men of the country from such goons when the security & safety of its IPS officers and their families is in jeopardy. People who still believe that rule of the land will prevail in such a scenario are actually living in a fool's paradise.
