Agartala: Tripura Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma took strong exception to the incidents of violence in a few places of Maharashtra and opined that a vested interest group became active to tarnish the image of Tripura before the global community in a calculative manner.

“We are shocked to see the incidents in Maharashtra referring to some false incidents of Tripura, which had never happened to the state and the people here not even thought of such incidents. Hindus and Muslims have been living together and sharing sentiments with each other till date. Using Tripura’s name for violence is a direct attack on the glorious history of us and hurts our emotion,” Dev Varma told media last night.

He reiterated that Tripura has traditionally been a place where people from different communities, religions and caste lived in peace and harmony. There was tension in some localities of Tripura following the incident in Bangladesh during Durga puja but the situation normalised immediately with the active role of community leaders of Hindu and Muslim.
A fake news was circulated that a mosque in Kakraban under Gomati district in Tripura has been damaged, which was not only false, also, far away from the distant dream of the people of Tripura, he said adding, “The people of both the communities have been leading a peaceful life in the area and they became embarrassed to see the reference of their place in TV channels. The people protested such irresponsible reporting by so-called national media.”

There is no reported case of damage and vandalism of any mosque in Tripura in the recent past. There is no report of simple or grievous injury or rape or death of any person in any incidents as alleged in some social media posts, which has triggered violence in Maharashtra, Dev Varma said and asserted that Tripura police have been asked to take strong action against the people who had circulated such news.

“Some fake news, photos captured from some other part of the world have been spread in the name of Tripura. We vehemently condemn the attempts to tarnish the glorious heritage of Tripura,” Deputy Chief Minister said alleging that some party who doesn’t have minimum base in the state and not have the courage to make a front door entry have been attempting with malicious design.
