Violence in Ujjain's Mahidpur claims one life

Once again the Madhya Pradesh police failed to anticipate trouble in the communally sensitive Ujjain.

The Miladunnabi procession ended in the evening and later policemen commanded the members of minority community to disperse, as a function of majority community was going on nearby.

The police and members of procession had a clash and later police fired, resulting in one death. But the question remains that why the police were not alert when the Miladunnabi and Holi were falling within a day of each other.

Sadly it was not a communal riot but lack of police preparedness and excess action turned the situation into a riot. Why the police fired at the crowd rather than using water canon or rubber bullets?

Sadly, in almost every riot it is the police action that worsens situations, as the firing is on upper parts of the body. Indian citizens irrespective of their religion keep getting killed by their own force.
