Kairana is a tiny city in Shamli district in Uttar Pradesh.
It is famous for being a hearth of a Kiran Gharana, an determined propagandize of Indian exemplary music.
More importantly, Kairana has always had community harmony, even during a time when tools of UP witnessed a lot of assault and community loathing during a 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots, according to Deccan Chronicle. The news also pronounced that with a race comprising scarcely 80 percent Muslims and 18 percent Hindus, Kairana has seen no snippet of community tension.
Enter BJP MP Hukum Singh.
After his explain that 346 Hindu families have been forced to rush Kairana due to “threats and coercion by rapist elements belonging to a sold community”, fear of community tragedy has clearly widespread in UP, where Assembly elections will take place in 2017.
The BJP personality had also expelled a list of a Hindus who had apparently left Kairana given of community hatred.
After Hukum Singh’s allegations, National Human Rights Commission expelled a notice to a UP supervision in tie with a purported exodus, while a UP supervision itself systematic a examine into a issue.
But usually as authorities in UP were removing concerned about community tragedy in Kairana, Hukum Singh took a large U-turn.
On Tuesday, a BJP personality — who was also one of a indicted in a Muzaffarnagar riots — pronounced that a exodus of Hindus from Kairana was “not communal” in inlet though was rather connected with a bad law and sequence conditions in a region, according to a Deccan Chronicle report.
Another Indian Express news also forked out that on a same day, Hukum Singh expelled a second list of names, this time from Kandhla. While a pretension of his initial list was ‘Kairana se palayan karne whelk Hindu pariwaron ki soochi (List of Hindu families who migrated from Kairana)’, his second list had a word ‘Hindu’ blank from a title, that was ‘Kandhla se palayan karne whelk pariwaron ki soochi (List of families who migrated from Kandhla)’.
We unequivocally consternation what brought about this remarkable change in Hukum Singh’s views. Maybe it was given he suspicion that a plan of polarisation and divisive politics for poll-bound UP would be captivated by a law about Kairana.

But what is a law about a conditions in Kairana?
According to reports, a law is indeed what Hukum Singh pronounced after his U-turn. It is indeed loyal that there has been an exodus of people from Kairana. But a reason behind it is a bad law and sequence situation, not any view of community hatred.
According to The Wire, while it is loyal that many of a Hindu families had left Kairana over a prolonged duration of time, it is also loyal that around 150 Muslim families had also changed out to safer places given of prevalent crime and loosening by military in Kairana, something that Hukum Singh conveniently forgot to discuss in his ‘list’.
The news combined that a few active gangs in Kairana extract not usually from Hindus aside also from Muslims. Two of these gangs are led by Mukim Kala and Furqan, both of whom are in jail.
Thus, Hukum Singh was indeed perplexing to turn a law and costume a law and sequence problem as a community problem.
Moreover, there have been vital inconsistencies reported in both of his lists.
In a Kairana list, an progressing Indian Express news had pronounced that 5 people had indeed died, 4 had changed out of Kairana looking for improved opportunities, 10 had left some-more than 10 years ago and 3 had changed fearing “local criminals”.
Out of 118 names submitted by a UP military and a Shamli district administration, who are checking on names in Hukum Singh’s list, identical patterns were found. Five were dead, 12 were still present, 46 had changed out given 2011 and 55 had changed out during slightest 6-11 years ago.
Similar inconsistencies were also found in Hukum Singh’s Kandhla list.
As a nine-member BJP commission arrives in Kairana to examine a exodus issue, they should keep in mind that a tangible problem plaguing Kairana seems to be really opposite from a one projected by Hukum Singh.
