India: Hindu hardliners accuse Muslims of 'bombing a cow', investigators disagree, blame the cow
VIDISHA - Hindu extremists, who miss no chance to target Muslims in India, once again took aim at the minority by accusing it of feeding a bomb to a cow which exploded in her mouth. The investigators have found the claims fake.

The incident took place in an area called Ahmadpur road in the town of Vidisha, Madhya Pardesh here the other day. Afterwards, Hindu hardliners started accusing Muslims of targeting the cow, reportedly owned by a Hindu farmer.

Inciting the communal violence, an extremist took to twitter and claimed without any investigation stating as “Muslims fed bomb to cow which blew inside her mouth. #Cow critically injured in Vidisha, MP. No arrests by police. #Hindus not allowed to protest”.

In response to fake claims regarding the involvement of Muslims, Madhya Pardesh Minister of Home & Transport Bhupendra Singh tweeted that FIR has been registered in the case. He added, "Investigations do not point to any communal mischief".

The minister said the according to initial investigations some tribal boys had hidden a ‘suar maar bomb’ (handmade bomb) in the bushes, which the poor cow inadvertently chewed. He added that tribal dwellings have been cleared from that area.

Meanwhile, the police during the investigation also did not find any involvement of Muslims in the incident. Talking to India-based Alt News, SP of Vidisha Vineet Kapoor confirmed that the cow indeed received injuries due to accidentally chewing a bomb.

The news quoted the SP as, “The explosive, known as ‘suar maar bomb’ (handmade bomb) is used by the nomadic tribe presently inhabiting the area for hunting wild pigs and are triggered by pressure. The cow accidentally chewed on the bomb when it was grazing the area, as a result of which it exploded. There is no Muslim or communal angle”.
