Centre seeks report on #KaliachakRiot in #Malda dist. of #WB

Over 35 vehicles were torched while the mob ran amok round Kaliachak police station.According to police sources, the entire incident was pre-planned and was not a mere religious gathering by Muslims groups protesting against the hate speech of Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha leader Kamlesh Tiwari.

A strong anti-Hindu sentiment in the locality, reportedly propagated by all three political parties - the ruling Trinamool Congress, Congress and CPI(M) - turned into massive violence on January 3, in which the local Muslims turned hostile towards the state administration.
About 1.5 lakh members of the Muslim community protested in Kaliachak against comments about the Prophet Mohammad allegedly made by Kamlesh Tiwari, an activist of the right-wing Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha.
