NHRC acts on Mission Bhartiyam appeal, seeks report on communal riots from Rajasthan government

On the appeal of Ravi Nitesh on behalf of Mission Bhartiyam to seek intervention of NHRC in continuous communal violence in Rajasthan, NHRC asked for a report by Rajasthan Government within four weeks.

 In last week of April,  communal violence happened in Nimaj town of Jaipur and after than curfew was imposed. It was reported that jeeps and bikes were damaged and set a fire, several houses and shops also get damaged. 
"Though I do not have any doubt over the administration, but I also want to appeal to NHRC to look in the 'series of communal violence' taking place in Rajasthan. As per reports, case in Nimaj is the sixth such incident in April alone. Similar cases have been reported over the last three weeks from Sanganer, Makrana, Sarwar, Udaipur and Baran."

Mission Bhartiyam demanded for a fair investigation and reasons of series of communal violence and compensation to victims. 

These incidents on one side are responsible for loss of life and property and for deforming social harmony, it also becomes the matter of human rights violations where responsibility of state matters to provide a safe environment for all, to provide justice to victims and to prevent such incidents.
