Jaipur, Aug 13 : Muslim Mev community, which has been under fire form cow vigilantes in Alwar region , would hold their mahapanchayat on September 19 against mob lynching and the gau-rakshaks.
At a recent panchayat meeting, the Mev community accused local BJP MLA Banwari Lal Singhal of inciting communal tension by calling a parallel meeting of the ‘right-wing’ activists on Aug 6, the day Mev panchayat was to meet.
Mevs allege they are being terrorized by the police. The mahapanchayat is likely to coincide with Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje’s Gaurav Yatra schedule. The yatra is a 40-day state-wide BJP pre-poll campaign kicked off on Aug 4, and will cover 165 Assembly constituencies of the state.
On the other hand, Singhal has warned that the Mahapanchayat “will not be allowed” in Alwar. Singhal said the mahapanchayat can incite communal violence at a time when there have been cases of cow carcasses and beef being found from a few houses in Alwar.
