New Delhi: A massive uproar was witnessed in the legislative assembly of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday over the temple desecration issue.

The ruckus in the assembly started after an attack on a Hindu temple in Jammu which led to a massive protest followed by communal tension in the city.  

The MLAs were seen standing up and raising their voices over the issue demanding an action. The MLAs demanded that the real culprit be punished but the innocents should not be harmed in any way.

The ministers speaking in favour of the government said that the police have arrested the culprits and no one who is apprehended is being harmed in any manner. The spokesperson of the assembly said that act requires a certain degree of investigation. “Instead of firing such kind of protests, the opposition should cooperate with the government,” the spokesperson said.

An ancient temple in Roopnagar area of Janipur was allegedly vandalised by an allegedly ‘mentally-disturbed’ man, leading to violent protests in the region.


The protest turned violent in Jammu last night. Protesters torched vehicles, gheraoed police stations and clashed with the personnel.

The police said that they have arrested the person involved in the desecration of the temple and the situation is under control now.
