Nagpur/Maharashtra: The circulation of pamphlets calling for a social and economic boycott of Muslims in Narkhed of Nagpur district, Maharashtra has created tension in the town.
The pamphlets appeared a week after the town witnessed a riot-like situation when a doctor was beaten up by some members of a particular community over a social media post on Vande Mataram.
They appeal to the majority community to boycott Muslim festivals and programmes.
“Don’t employ Muslim workers at your home or work places. Don’t call Muslims to your homes. Don’t go to shops and petrol pumps owned by them. Don’t vote for Muslim candidates,” were some of the exhortations.
