Bulldozers in Mira Road: Demolition of Illegal Properties Where Clashes Took Place After Ram Temple Rally

Bulldozers in Mira Road: Authorities reported that 15 properties in Mira Road, deemed “illegal,” are currently undergoing demolition. This initiative, initially introduced by the Uttar Pradesh government and subsequently adopted by various BJP-led states, targets criminals. However, critics raise concerns regarding the legitimacy and jurisdiction of such measures.

In Mumbai, bulldozers, accompanied by a significant police and security presence, have demolished “illegal” constructions in the Mira Road suburb. This area had witnessed violence both before and after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘pran pratishtha’ of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya on Monday.

According to the police, 15 “illegal” properties in the vicinity are currently being demolished. This approach was first implemented by the Uttar Pradesh government and later adopted by several other BJP-led states as a measure against criminals. However, critics are raising concerns about the legitimacy and authority of such actions.

Footage of the incidents, captured on Sunday evening and Monday afternoon, the latter occurring after the controversial consecration of the temple, were widely shared on social media. The videos depicted two groups engaged in stone-throwing confrontations.

By Monday night, the police had apprehended more than a dozen individuals linked to the clashes that unfolded during a Shri Ram Shobha Yatra passing through Mira Road’s Naya Nagar area. The procession, featuring cars and bikes adorned with saffron flags, was targeted by a mob hurling stones, resulting in injuries, as per the police.

Authorities mentioned that the accused individuals’ “illegal” encroachments are currently undergoing demolition—a strategy initially introduced by the Uttar Pradesh government and subsequently adopted by several other BJP-led states to combat criminal activities.

The mob also damaged the vehicles using stones and sticks, authorities added.

On Monday night, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis emphasized that severe consequences awaited anyone attempting to disrupt law and order in the state. He provided updates on the Naya Nagar incident, stating that he remained in constant communication with the Mira-Bhyander Police Commissioner until 3.30 am on Monday.

Fadnavis asserted, “Police have been instructed to take strict action against the accused. In this case, 13 accused have been detained so far, and the process of identifying other suspects is underway through CCTV footage. Any attempts to disrupt law and order in Maharashtra will not be tolerated.”

Deputy Commissioner of Police Jayant Bajbale informed reporters that the conflict erupted at 11 pm on Sunday “when some people of the Hindu community were raising slogans in three-four vehicles…”

According to sources, the properties associated with the individuals involved in the recent clashes over the past two days are currently undergoing demolition.
