Riots were just happened after Calcutta killings as well as noakhali riots earlier that year cause of doing was ethnic cleansing of Muslims in magadh.
Riot occurred in a region of Bihar called magadh from 24 Oct to 11 Nov, in which extremist hindu mob targeted Muslim families. In 1946 magadh riot were part of a series of incident of communal voilence across the North India.
Frequency of riots increased in the 1930s and 1940s; in 1946 alone 3,176 riot took place across the country in 1946. On 16 th august 1946 Muslim League direct action day in calcutta as part of their demand for a separate state for Muslims, these riot triggered communal violence across the county including Bihar as well as Noakhali riot provoked violence in Bihar.
Largest riot of that year 1946, occurred 27 Oct to 6 Nov, during which period large number of Muslims were killed by Heinous minded people and Hindu mahasabha they called it retaliation of direct action day and they justified it horrifyingly.
Kalim AJiz accompanied with about 4-5 friends of him reached Dr. Syed Mehmood resident to seek assistance at that time he was powerful minister of Bihar but he was busy in his feast ‘Daawat party’ didn’t responded to Kalim Ajiz what he uttered.
After that Dr mehmood spkoked to Inspector general of police at 03:00 p.m asked for Military personnel’s then 6 Military personnel arrived on truck. One of accompanied of Kalim Ajiz knows one of the military (INA) personnel called Colonel Mehmoob Ahmed and asked him ‘where are you coming from’? We are going to tilhara after listening this he shocked and stummed and said what kept remained in Tilhara now? I am coming from there, look at the clothes of mine and my accompanied he responded.
We are coming from disposing of death bodies with full of bloods, village has been destroyed, housese were burnt, people’s were martyred Mehmoob Ahmed added. (Colonel Mehmoob Ahmed was soldier of Azad hind). Hereafter, Kalim Ajiz shocked and came towards ‘kothi’ while shouting. Doctor Sahab! Doctor Sahab! Come and bring your guest too, Look at the foothill of glaziness of them, some more people came from feast.
Doctor Sahab! the sorrow of not attending the feast will last for lifetime, too many processions should be sacrificed on your activity Kalim Ajiz added.
This story is not of common man rather this story is passed over on self of renowned Indian poet called Kalim Ajiz he said all these in his book ” Wo Jo shayri Ka sabab hua” he also got padamshree for this book from Indian government.
British parliament statesman put the death toll 5,000 while Indian national Congress put it at 2,000 while Mohammed Ali jinnah, a leader of Muslim League stated that 30,000 people had been killed actually exact data is not available till now. On 5th November, ‘Mahatma Gandhi stated that he would fast unto death if the violence in Bihar didn’t stop within 24 hours, while riot at its peak Mohammad yunus, a leader of Muslim League asked Muslims to observe ‘Bakr-Eid’ which occurred on 5th November, as day mourning. After circulating of Gandhi’s statement riot put at end’.
I am stating some pictures of Congress led sponsored riot here:-
~ you can imagine how much frightening this riot was, Mahatama Gandhi itself came to visit riot affected areas on saying of Dr. Syed Mehboob accompanied with Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan and Saifuddin Kitchlew.
Consequences of riot:-
1.Rural Muslims escaped their ancestoral home and migrated to urban areas after the pogrom happened.
2.Mostly Pasmanda Muslims who surrounded by Hindus had to leave for Pakistan.
3. Muslim who retaliated with extremist mob had sustained here.
4. Last one which type of Muslims who stayed here just for the sake of Islam, who wasn’t ready to leave India just for how we leave our ancesterol home, ancesterol graveyard.
