Morphed pic sparks clashes in Dungarpur – The Times of India

In Rajasthan on November 22, 2011 at 10:17 am

A morphed picture of a sacred site of Muslims on a social networking site led to clashes in Rajasthan’s Dungarpur town on Monday which left 16 people, including four policemen, injured.

Noticing on a social networking site the picture of a Muslim pilgrimage on which some unknown person had morphed the image of a swine, nearly 10,000 Muslims gathered at the heart of the town for a meeting. They submitted a memorandum to the district collector.

During the meeting, the police failed to manage the traffic and the crowd. People beat up a man who barged into the gathering. This led to a clash between the police and the crowd. Agitated people pelted the police with stones. They ransacked about a dozen shops and set them on fire. Police lathicharged to disperse the mob.
