Miscreants deface wall of court premises with graffiti

BANGALORE: Days after a graffiti supporting terror-group Lashkar-e-Taiba was spotted in Mangalore, another provocative graffiti, calling for the beheading of those who insult Prophet Muhammad, has come up in the Karnataka district on Sunday.

The graffiti read 'Gustak e Rasool ki ek hi saza, sar tan say juda' (only one punishment for offending Prophet - severing head from body) in Urdu language and English script.

The graffiti was found scribbled on the wall of an old police outpost on the court premises. The graffiti was apparently written on Saturday, however, it was spotted today morning.

On Friday, a graffiti reading “do not force us to invite Lashkar-e-Taiba, Taliban to deal with Sanghis and Manvedis”, was found at a public place in Mangalore. The graffiti was found on the wall of an apartment Circuit House of the city in support of the terrorist organisations. The graffiti also read 'Lashkar Zindabad'.

The police launched an investigation as soon as the matter came to light and a case was registered against unidentified people for allegedly promoting enmity between different communities and causing damage to property. "We have covered it now. All CCTV cameras in the locality are being checked. We are looking for all possible clues," police had said.

Notably, Sanghis are referred to as people associated with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
