'Police entered the house on Friday night'
Several things, including a broken car, broken tiles, shattered items, a broken watch, in the house of 72-year-old Haji Hamid Hassan are testifying to the demolition on Friday night. The clock at home is stopped at 10:57 am. According to a Network 18 report, 72-year-old Haji Hamid Hasan said that at the same time policemen entered the house and he first broke the clock. The Sarwat of Muzaffarnagar is a Muslim-dominated area with Haji Hamid Hasan's home. Haji says that the two granddaughters are married in February and they have been collecting money for this for years. The house was remodeled and decorated for the wedding, but now it seems as if a storm came here and everything passed away. Many items including freezes, washing machines, cupsets which were in packing were all broken. Cars, scooters are all standing in the house in broken condition.
Members of the house were injured
Six members were injured in the house vandalism, including 14-year-old Ahmed. Haji Ahmed said that he had not even gone to the protest. 'I believe it is wrong to burn buses but why are you punishing me for this, what have I done, I have not even gone to the protest.' The Muslims of the area allege that the police have targeted Muslim families with good standing in their action. Haji claims that the police have caused him a loss of 20 lakhs.
A demolition in the wholesale dealer's house
74-year-old Haji Anwar Ilahi is a shoe-and-shoe wholesale merchant in the Khalapar area whose four-floor building was so ransacked that the tiles up to the kitchen and bathroom were uprooted. The family says the police took away ornaments worth lakhs. Police sticks found next to an open box of jewelry. Police had also taken Poliogastra elderly Ilahi that night. Elahi said painfully – kept me in lockup for two days. People in my family were not allowed to meet me. I was not even given a blanket to survive the cold. The administration claims that only those people were seen in the video.
'Some were also in plain clothes with the police'
Elahi's 24-year-old granddaughter Humaira Parveen said the police left their sticks behind in a hurry to carry the jewelry. Crying Humaira said- Some people were in plain clothes with the police who did not look like the police. When one policeman was breaking the tiles of the house, the other said that do not break it, after all we have to stay here. Humaira said that they wanted us to leave this house but it is our house, why should we leave from here.
'Did nothing to Shiv Chowk, sealed Meenakshi Chowk'
On December 20, the police administration quickly controlled the ruckus at Meenakshi Chowk, after which 67 shops there were sealed. Iron merchant Abdul Sattar says that the police are targeting businessmen from the Muslim community. There is Shiv Chowk near Meenakshi Chowk where no shop was sealed. Muslim traders fear that their seal shops should not be auctioned for compensation. Although the administration has said that shops will not be auctioned, sealing action has been taken to collect evidence of violence.
