Communal Tensions[edit]

The area has witnessed a few communal tensions in the previous years.Communal flare ups in the Old City have often had roots in the twin neighbouring colonies of Madannapet and Saidabad. Described as being communally hyper-sensitive, the two colonies have been under police scanner for decades.

The chunk of the two-wheelers burning incidents in the Old City following Milad un-Nabi November 2011 were reported from Madannapet and Saidabad. Earlier in 2009, the area witnessed a clash post municipal elections and in 2007, it was again Milad un-Nabi celebrations that triggered tension.

According to locals, the communal friction has been rocking the area since the 1980s and later the Rath Yatra of BJP leader L K Advani in the 1990s added fuel to the fire. Madannapet, which has a near equal presence of both the communities, has a strong RSS presence. On the other hand, Saidabad is home to some controversial persons like Maulana Naseeruddin of Tehreek Tahffuz-e-Shuaer-e-Islam, alleged Simi patron Maulana Abdul Aleem Islahi, whose son Mujahid Saleem was shot dead by the Gujarat police while he was protesting against the arrest of Maulana Naseer and Shaikh Mahboob Ali, the late DJS chief.
