After the violence during the Shobha Yatra in Jahangirpuri, Delhi, the MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) bulldozed alleged illegal occupations in Jahangirpuri.

Remain of the temple found during mosque demolition!

 

Kisne feka: An image of a demolished mosque is doing rounds on social media. In the viral photo, half-demolished minarets of the mosque can be seen. What is interesting is that some pillars of the demolished mosque are identical to those of the Temple. People shared this image on social media, claiming that the remains of Veerabhadreshwara temple were found during the demolition of the mosque’s minaret to widen a road in Raichur, Karnataka.

Foolproof: In a report in  Deccan Herald dated 15 April 2016, some pillars resembling Hindu places of worship were found under the ‘Ek Minar’ mosque during the road widening, following which right-wing organizations demanded an inquiry into the matter.
