Communal riots break out in Sambhaji Nagar between two Muslim groups

Incidents of communal unrest between Muslims and Hindus have been a longstanding issue. However, recent social media videos depict clashes specifically between two Muslim communities in Sambhaji Nagar. Disturbingly, violence has erupted between the Sunni and Ahmadiyya communities, with a significant revelation indicating that the majority Sunni community alleges an attack by the minority Ahmadiyya community following a dispute among children.

According to the video, women belonging to the Sunni Muslim community assert that the conflict originated involving young children. Allegedly, individuals from the Ahmadiyya community initiated an attack on children, and when a child’s mother intervened to protect her child, she was also subjected to severe beatings. The majority Sunni community claims that the minority Ahmadiyya community attacked them after a dispute between children. As a result, 64 people have been arrested.

Women of the Sunni Muslim community request that they get justice and they are extremely afraid of such threats. The women are requesting help for their safety so that such fights do not happen again. Mainstream media and Muslim influential bloggers have completely ignored this violence. This big incident is not being discussed openly.
