May their soul rest in peace / Anil Naagar (Community Member ) Dear brothers and sisters, May God keep you in his hands. The sacrifice you made will be remembered by all the Gurjars. Click here to pay tribute or offer your condolences His legacy The Sacrifice of the Gurjars Nineteen people were killed and at least 100 others injured in clashes and police firing in three districts of Rajasthan during an agitation by the Gurjar community over the quota issue. The Army was called out after the protestors blocked the Jaipur-Agra highway. The clashes erupted in the Dausa, Karauli and Bundi districts during a demonstration by the Gurjars demanding Scheduled Tribe status. Four persons were killed in Dausa when police opened fire on the protesters after they started clashing with the police. Over 14 policemen were injured in the clashes. The protesters also took a policeman hostage. The incident took place early in the morning when about 30,000 Gurjars blocked the national highway near Dausa at around 0800 hours, IST. When they refused to disperse, the police resorted to lathicharge and fired tear gas on them. This resulted in clashes between the two sides leading to firing by the police. There was panic and outrage after the attack. The crowd soon turned violent and damaged some police vehicles. Police had to eventually back out from the scene, witnesses said. At least five people were killed in Bundi when police opened fire on a mob near a temple. Prohibitory orders have been imposed in Tonk, Jaipur, Dausa, Sawai Madhopur and Karauli districts. Tension seemed to be spreading with reports of police clashing with Gurjar protesters, who came out from other parts of the state like Kothputli and Hindon to block the Jaipur-Delhi highway near Dausa. State Home Secretary VS Singh said Army battalions had been rushed from Jaipur and Bharatpur to stage flag-marches on the Jaipur-Agra national highway near Dausa. Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria called an emergency meeting to review the situation. Home department officials said the situation was "bleak" and they were keeping a close watch on the developments. The Gurjar Sangarsh Samiti had earlier given a call to block all highways leading to Jaipur on Tuesday. Though the police imposed prohibitory orders in six districts and tightened security, it was not enough to stem the violence. One of the groups, the Gurjar Mahasabha, had postponed its agitation till July 31 after a Cabinet sub-committee was formed in September to examine the quota issue and the inclusion of the Gurjars in the Scheduled Tribe category. This is not the first time that trouble has broken out over the Gurjar community's demand for Scheduled Tribe status. In September, protesters had damaged railway tracks and property near Hindon railway station, disrupting services on the key Mumbai-Delhi section. The Gurjars in Rajasthan feel politically alienated and that seems to be manifesting in violence. Gurjar leaders are upset with the slow progress the community is making. They claim the Jats and Meenas also belonging to the same region and having more or less the same background have forged ahead and secured top positions in government jobs. They are also worried about the fact that the Jats have forced their way into the OBC category.
