    NORTHEAST

    The Union Home Ministry stated that news reports detailing an alleged incident of vandalisation of a mosque in Kakraban area of Gomati district in Tripura are “fake” and a “complete misrepresentation of facts”.

    "These news reports are fake and are a complete misrepresentation of facts. The mosque in Dargabazar area of Kakraban has not been damaged and the Tripura Police in Gomati district is working to maintain peace and tranquillity," the government said in an official press release.

    Several reports of vandalisation of a mosque began doing the rounds on social media platforms following which Tripura Police released a statement in which it said, “This is a complete misrepresentation of facts. The mosque in Dargabazar area of Kakraban is completely fine & Gomati police is working to maintain peace and tranquillity.”

    Communal tension broke out in Tripura after the Vishwa Hindu Parishad took out a rally in Dharmanagar following which a mosque was allegedly vandalised in Panisagar sub-division and homes and shops were also damaged. 

    Dismissing the reports, the Centre said, "There have been news reports that have been circulating that a mosque in Kakraban area of Gomati district in Tripura has been damaged and vandalized. These news reports are fake and are a complete misrepresentation of facts. The mosque in Dargabazar area of Kakraban has not been damaged and the Tripura Police in Gomati district is working to maintain peace and tranquillity."

    It added, "There is no reported case of damage of the structure of any Masjid in Tripura in the recent past. There is no report of simple or grievous injury or rape or death of any person in these incidents as alleged in some social media posts."

    The Union government further asked the people to maintain calm and not be misguided by such fake reports. 

    "For instance, in Maharashtra there have been reports of violence and unsavoury statements that are aimed at disturbing peace and harmony, based on fake news regarding Tripura. This is very concerning and it is urged that peace is maintained at all costs," the Centre stated.
