Islamabad, July 28 (IANS) The communal violence in Indian town of Saharanpur should be halted at once before it spreads and becomes uncontrollable, a Pakistani daily said in an editorial. The violence was a result of a land dispute between the Muslim and Sikh communities in Saharanpur and so far, it has claimed two lives, the Daily Times said in an editorial. “Saharanpur is a place under direct influence and control of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and is suffering intolerance and aggression in the form of religious discrimination,” the editorial said. “It is a matter that needs to be sorted out before a large-scale eruption of communal riots breaks out, the potential is there and it must be curbed.” The editorial said that the Muslims in India and Pakistan were, “extremely weary of what would be of their lot once Narendra Modi came to power after controversies surrounding his role in the 2002 Gujarat riots.” “If the above-mentioned two incidents are anything to go by, the forecast looks grim for the many Muslims in India, especially in Uttar Pradesh,” the editorial said.
